Spoken like a TRUE St. Louisian!!!! Someone who doesn't like or want change and wants to stifel anyone that does. That's why I left STL. Well Alex, I am under 40 and it is understandable that you like what you like, but don't keep others from wanting something different. It is time to appeal to a NEW demo and there are those of us who DO like Smooth Jazz. Not everyone wants to hear Rock all of the time, I don't care if it is on K-HITS or K-SHE. For once, Emmis-St. Louis needs to appeal to a different demo for once. Stop living in the past alex AND Emmis-STL!!!!!!!!
I have nothing against someone trying Smooth Jazz. However it is foolish to blow up a profitable, highly rated station with a unique format to do it.
Or better yet, listen to Smooth Jazz on Satellite Radio, or on the internet, or make your own CD's. It won't sell in St. Louis, bottom line. Classic Rock sells, so it's staying. Watch KHITS go up in the ratings now that they have expanded their playlist.
If anyone is going to switch to Smooth Jazz in town, it's going to be a station that is suffering for revenue. KIHT-FM isn't the one.
