    Default Zeta 94.7: Sad Day For South Floridians!

    I guess I am the first to post this-

    Zeta 94.7, South Florida's only new rock/progressive station went off the air today for good, no warning or anything. Of course it is a Clear Channel Station. They played plenty of VH (although not much of the new tunes). Proves once again, Clear Channel has no loyalty and could care less about the music or its listeners (well we already knew this). They fired the whole on air staff too.

    They did the same thing to 99.1 WHFS an institution in Washington, DC area (where I grew up). Temporarly it is playing host to Air America with Al Franken/Jeneane Garafalo (spelling?). Then get this, it is switching to Spanish Pop radio. Not GOOD spanish music, but more canned pop bullshit...only in Spanish!

    So As I was composing my seething letter to Clear Channel, saying how I was going to purchase XM Radio and abandon Broadcast...blah blah blah. I decided to do some research... Clear Channel has actually invested $250 MILLION in XM radio.

    I am sorry they are just fuckin- SATAN! I want to puke!
    Now they have to ruin Satellite Radio too? The funny thing is there were rumors about XM buying Sirrius...
    Damn...poor Howard Stern, and poor music listeners around the country!

    Write the FCC and you local Congress person and Senator. Chances are that they will have someone on their staff who feels the way you do and loves rock music too.

    If the FCC can mandate that cable carry X number of channels devoted to shopping and religion then they can also mandate X number of rock music stations in a georaphical area.

    Just a thought.

    Not a bad thought...

    We just lost an oldies station that I liked as an alternative to Spanish music. What a coink-y-dink - it was owned by Clear Channel.

    Is it just me or is Clear Channel changing all of their rock stations to "Spainglish Pop"? Remember that one in Texas, KLOL? I dunno what I'd do if they replaced WKQQ in Lexington! I'd probably pull my hair out!

    Clear Channel is far too big, and has its fingers in way too many pies. There must be a limit.

    Hey jd, yeah man I couldn't figure out this morning. Last night it seemed a normal night on the radio. I know there is a good rock station in W. Palm Beach, but I forget the call letter/dial. Hope we can find it here in Miami. Hope our classic rock sticks around on 105.9

    I know it's not radio in a tradional sense
    and even though you might not dig the style of music,
    you should be able to see how cool such a site like this is

    That would be the Gator-98.7. It features the "Bob and Tom Show", and is primarily an oldies station (large playlist!!!), superior to our local "Big 105.9"(with a playlist of about 200 songs ).

    There is also the Buzz, which is new music, yet sadly neither one really gets past Commercial Boulevard (maybe on a clear day).

    Glad I usually listen to talk radio.

    That's weird how they point those antennas. I can get the Gator at least up to Melbourne, I think - which is way further than Commercial Boulevard (in Ft. Lauderdale, for those trying to follow along with this regional conversation). Hell, driving home Tuesday, I was picking up a station from Tampa while I was in the Melbourne-Cocoa area!

    Same here.
    If I drive south east about 9 miles, I can pick up the 100 watt stations coming out of Key West!

    There was a guy here locally, broadcasting on an FM band...from his house, from what I hear. He turned out some amazing metal to the airwaves for the time...Minustry, White Zombie, then a live Maiden side.

    The guy was good.

    I heard it.

    That is what is needed now: locals, allowed to access of FM radio...isn't there some kind thing in the FCC charter about this?

    I'm not making this up, as I remember it from a long time ago, something about private use of low-band FM radio.

    Anybody?

    On a brighter note, theirs a classic rock station taking over for a huge top 40 station here in New Jersey. I'd call that evolution.

    Clearchannel is what a boil is to one's ass...

    They axed the only rock station to really cover all genre's (97.1 the Eagle) and replace it with a lineup of "songs for divorced middle aged women" station...asinine to say the least..

    Okay all!
    The new rock station in S.Fla is 93.1. Don't know its name yet, but it has been cranking out some awesome shit. I'm sure they are just reeling us in to only later turn to shit, but it's good right now. It is clear channel, so don't get hopes to high. When was the last time you heard Helmut or Maiden on the air? They played it last night!
