Kbme was probably the last station to carry that format with their beautiful music before cheap channel ruined it trying to flip it to a sports station even though there were too many in the market already
Huh??? KBME from 1998 to 2004 was Standards/MOR/Nostalgia, not Beautiful Music, which is an entirely different format that pretty much disappeared in the 1980's.
And how did Clear Channel "ruin" 790? There was only one other SportsTalker in the market (610) when 790 was flipped in 2004. Was one SportsTalker "too many" as you claim?
