The Continuing Saga of 101.1 FM

Remember awhile back when I complained that my favorite radio station was gone? Well it changed again. For a few months it was a modern rock/pop station, but over the weeked, a rather bizarre transition occured. For about 24 hours straight, the station played Marvin Gaye’s “I Heard It Through the Grapevine.”

Definitely the weirdest format change I’ve ever witnessed in this town. Especially after giving the previous format such a short span to in which to work.

I still haven’t heard any DJ’s on the air, just the FCC-mandated call letters and city. I also can’t get a fix on their format. You tell me what kind of station has this playlist:

Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons – Big Girls Don’t Cry
Dexy’s Midnight Runners – Come on Eileen
Sweet – Ballroom Blitz
Michael Jackson – Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough
Chic – Le Freak
David Bowie – Let’s Dance

Everything else I’ve heard has been mostly 70′s disco tunes with names I can’t recall. Weird.

    Colter, you should know better. Dexy’s Midnight Runners did Come On Eileen. But this in no way diminishes my respect for you.

    I randomly discovered that station yesterday. I heard “Beat It” when I turned it on, then “Stop In the Name of Love”. Insanity!

    Sounds like the new “Bob” format (also called “Jack:).
