    Wow, another station I need to remove from my pre-sets. More podcasts and Pandora in the car for me.

  2. Dylan says:

    lol, “Without the Rap” sounds like a subtle way of saying, “without that annoying Hip Hop music”.

  3. Nick says:

    Where is the old school hip hop station? Why should NWA, B-I-G, 2-live-crew, and salt and peppa be thursday morning between 10:45 and 11:00AM treats? Or where is the classic rock station? I really don’t like hearing U2 on the Eagle.

  4. Nick says:

    So they did their no rap promo Then played “Your Love is My Drug” where Kesha rhymes over a looped beat and references an 808 drum. No rap *wink wink*. You know what we mean. None of that uppity music.

  5. Mad Dog says:

    The can leave out the rap if they want, but it’s still spelled similar: CRAP. The new format is a waste of frequency. They went from bad to worse.

  6. Turty Squip says:

    No books on tape for this crew, huh?

  7. Moe Hong says:

    Turty, do you actually have a tapedeck in your car?

  8. Turty Squip says:

    Well- no, but I just transfer the books on tape to an 8-track at home, and play those in the car.

  9. Laura says:

    Embarrassing. Why does Sacramento need five stations serving the same purpose — providing easy listening for dental offices and elevators?

  10. Honey Sac says:

    It is very sad. =( I am one of the annoying people who enjoy hearing the same song over and over again (until I am sick of it, then I never want to hear it again). The trouble comes when ALL the music sounds essentially the same ALL the time… Where do we go from here? Mono-culture is kinda freaky and we seem to be transitioning to it. country/rock/rap/r&b fusion, listen while you pound down your value meal!

  11. I’m sorry to hear that the radio scene in Sacramento has taken such a huge hit. It does make a sort of sad sense, though. Most people who run radio stations are looking to make money, and they make money by getting the widest possible audience. Taking chances on diverse music is generally seen as a great way to tank your advertising profits, so more and more radio stations are going to endless rehashing of the top 40. I’m not entirely sure that the playlist you laid out is precisely suitable for a dentist’s office, but it certainly isn’t progressive in any sense of the word. Pandora really is a wonderful invention that brings the diversity back to radio.
