    Default Rumor on the Radio

    Sorry, I know that these "rumors" are taboo around here, but I just heard on the radio today, at 3:10 P.M. Pacific Standard Time from the DJ on 98.5 KFOX in the San Francisco Bay Area (sorry, this is as close as I can get to an actual link) that Van Halen did complete a new album in early July 2010 and it's set for release in a couple of months. I have no idea where he got his information from, and the most he would say is that it may be the truth because of the tour rumors and also the fact that no one in the Van Halen camp (assuming they even know about the rumor) is denying it.

    Don't shoot me, I'm just the messenger. I know some of you (especially Brett and Mike) don't like these types of threads because you've probably seen a thousand of them over the course of the last ten years, but bear in mind, I've only been around for about a year, and haven't seen all that.

    Okay, I'm rambling, just take the rumor for what it's worth.

    All I gotta say is maybe just post this stuff in the sticky thread dedicated to it. After all... it is All Encompassing!

    I understand having a sticky about rumors and reports. But my problem with it is that new rumors and reports get buried in it never to be seen. If non-rumor/report talk was kept to a minimum it would be ok. But someone posts a rumor bit say on page 37, by the time I check up on the site here the current page is 45. It's just a hassle to have to then back track to find out what the rumor/news is. Or worse yet talk derails into some other subject by the 41st page. I'd never know about the news then. I'm sure people know where I'm comin from.

    It's just very nice when someone hears something (since we hear so little) to have a new easy to see thread on the subject. I understand keeping a forum clean. But I don't understand closing threads/merging to others when there is so little new thread posting. I'm use to forums where literally the first two pages of a main forum are filled with new threads almost daily. Those guys have to keep a close watch. Here I sometimes don't understand it. End feedback from your average VH fan .

    On the bit by the DJ, thanks for posting. Always fun and exciting to hear a rumor like this and hope it comes true.

    Isn't this station actually a Sacramento station and is the DJ "Dogface"?
    He is pretty up on things VH related, not sure how but he was all over the 2007/08 reunion BEFORE it happened.

    It's a San Jose station & the DJ is Tim Jeffreys, used to hear him on KSJO years ago before it turned Mexican overnight and shocked all the metal heads.

    yeah, I think you're right. I think it was Tim Jeffries. I do remember him from KSJO when they were the best rock station around. Sad that they went away. I liked it way better than the Bone. I think it was more diverse. They played classic rock but also played a lot of '80's-90's hard rock/metal.

    I think the Mexican format is gone too, and it's now some sort of a dance/trance type station.

    Coz it's 'bout time that we start rolling out album titles and singles names.

    I almost never listen to FM radio anymore.
    I do turn on The Bone here and there - That's what she said!

    Yeah KSJO did play newer rock too if i remember, them and KRQR "The Rocker" were great Bay Area rock stations in the 90's.

    The album out in a couple months? If it was coming out in a couple months, we’d know already. A surprise announcement is one thing but the surprise release of a record doesn’t help sales. What’s next, on a Tuesday in October someone just happens to see the new CD on the shelves in their favorite record store? Hey guys, the new VH CD is on sale and no one knows about it and Janie is screaming, “rumors!”
