With the dismal shape of Atlantaradio these days, I thought I would put together a brief synopsis of what has happened to this beautiful, MAJOR market. Please chime in with memories and thoughts and why we are in this shape?
Back in the hey day not too long ago we had Z-93-amazing top 40 that sounded alive upbeat, a station that you could not get enough of, then boom DAVE FM what a joke.
94Q-Great top 40 again, with Jazz Flavors with Craig Ashwood at night.
Peach-well we know this was a disaster to blow it up call it the BULL and go country.
96 Rock- Incredible station for all of those long haired freaky people. lol Now it is Project what ever the hell that is?
Old Fox 97, I am talking about the days before Randy and Spiff, even though it was still a Gainesville only station its massive signal was listened to by many in the metro.
Power 99, this was the last true incredible top 40 before it blew up to be 99X, now Q100.
Of course we now what happened to Quixie in Dixie and that was just inevitable, but what a powerhouse in its day.
WWID 106.7, this was an amazing top 40 powerhouse as well, then it has been country, standards, AGH whatever the F that was, now news which I do not have a problem with, but they have a plethora of kinks to work out or they are going to fail miserably.
So there you go, thank you Clear Channel, Cumulus, Cox and all of the other money whores who have put an inferior product on the dial. Where is my ipod?
