In the last week or so I've noticed they no longer refer to themselves as "95 point 3, KUIC," but "95 three, KUIC." Gone is the longtime positioning statement "The Best Hits of the '80's, '90's and Today" and along with it many of the "best hits" of the '70's and '80's. For reasons I could never understand, KUIC regularly played songs going back to the mid '70s ("My Life," by Billy Joel and a handful of songs from The Eagles, for example) but followed them directly with their "Best Hits of the '80's, '90's and Today" sweeper... did they really think they were pulling one over on us? But I digress... Anyway, most songs before 1990 have been pulled and replaced with a much more upbeat and current playlist that includes songs never played when first released, such as "Hollaback Girl" by Gwen Stefani heard today in the 5 o'clock hour. The station's new mix seems to better reflect the ethnic diversity of its service area and today's drive time DJ was new as well. I think he identified himself as "Tom Cruise," but he reminded me of a jovial JJ Jackson. I always thought of KUIC as "the KOIT of Solano County," but now it sounds more like "the Alice of Solano County." I'm glad to hear these changes and think the station was long overdue for a refresher. Thoughts?
