98.5 The Beat anyone
Hey, that MTV show is hot, why not flip to dance?...oh wait...Wild 102.7 comes in Southern Ocean...and there's one in Monmouth *cough cough* Well, we know for a fact Alternative will never return from Press, but I'm with you on the Gen X format, will deff bring back some classic B98.5 feels, musicwise.
They had the formula right in the weeks after their relaunch, but apparently Press had to mess with a good thing and removed alot of the dance oriented tracks. I have a feeling this station wont be kept around for that much longer, Press hasn't even set up a B98.5 webpage yet, and is still hosted at www.hit106.com
I usually wind up changing the station after I hear B play lame stuff like "King of Anything",etc. I miss those flashbacks too, playing those old school songs like Captain Hollywood's "More and More".
I think they'd get better ratings putting the Wild format on there, the 98.5 signal is better than 102.7, which barely covers all of Atlantic County.
I just dont get these ppl, why play the same stuff you can hear on 92.3, 94.3, 95.1, 100.3, 102.1,etc,etc,etc
Press needs to drop the "King of Anything" elevator music and focus on the "Takeover Control", "Like a G6", and "Stereo Love" stuff.
Just see how few folks go to the B98.5 facebook...http://www.facebook.com/pages/B985/152073671488406
Compare that with the much higher activity on Party FM's facebookhttp://www.facebook.com/PartyFM?v=info#
