Well I am listening to Smooth Jazz at work these days due to The Oasis's website, www.smoothjazz1075.com
Even it is "off" the air, I can still listen to it while I work. Dumbest thing they have ever done in my opinion.
I'll agree, when The Oasis left 106.1 though, the format changed slightly and I don't like all the songs they play on 107.5 or the website in The Oasis format. There are WAY too many "normal" songs being played on the station and the site. I don't see Boz Skaggs, Mariah Carey, Gerry Rafferty and Santana actually being "Smooth Jazz" artists.
They used to play some great cuts on 106.1 that they would NEVER play on The Oasis when it moved to 107.5. Two that always come to mind are "Sleepwalkers" by Level 42 and I can't remember the song, but the band was called "Horizont" and they had a great sound. The first song off their CD was played a great deal on 106.1. It was awesome and the format was awesome. It did change when it moved down the dial..................but I still liked it, it just needed some "tweaking" to be more jazz.
My two cents worth!
