Long time Valley radio personality Dave Pratt is returning to the FM dial.

On August 15, Pratt will be taking over the morning slot at X103.9.

Pratt has been a Valley FM staple for years -- his time at KUPD lasted twenty of them -- before he moved to KZON in 2002, and then KMLE from 2003 to 2008.

Since earlier this year, Pratt has hosted Dave Pratt Live online, but said over the air this morning that while he had "a blast on the internet," he and his crew (we profiled his co-host, Kassi Jade, back in January) are excited to be back on the FM dial.

Valley listeners know Pratt for his Sex Machine Band, but he also battled prostate cancer in 2005, and proceeds from his book, Behind the Mic, benefit the American Cancer Society.

Reaction to the news has NOT been positive based on the first 40-or-so comments on  X103.9's Facebook page, but Pratt certainly has a lot of fans around the Valley. Is Pratt a good fit for X103.9? Looks like only time will tell.

I could only listen to him for about a minute. Dribble prattling of a radio DJ is not entertaining to me. Thank goodness for XM Radio.

being that i spend most of my radio time in the car driving to work and back and listening to sports talk 90% of the time (listening to chuck and vince on am 1060, actually), this will likely not effect me even in the slightest. although i do find it odd that someone can go from pure rock, to soft rock, to country, then to alternative rock. i know it's the nature of the business but i'd rather get the feeling that i'm listening to a dj who truly loves what they're playing. when it's so interchangeable like that, it doesn't feel authentic.

So a guy who has blasted traditional radio over the past six months as being a dinosaur - oh, the irony - can't live without (something resembling) an FM signal? What a toad. Anyway, if he keeps his crazy, wacky guy, no-rules-constrain-me non-format, how will that attract those listeners? How will that station's format attract Dave's? 

So hard to believe the former Edge would make a bad business decision, isn't it?
