    Wow sound like the same jingles KHJZ Houston was using during it’s Smooth Jazz days (2002 to 2008) as 95-7 The Wave. I have tape of their first day.. unfortunately not the flip. :/

      Metropolitan franchised the “Wave” name not long after the launch (successive owner CBS still maintains the service mark), and even ran a jockless satellite service to other radio stations around the country.

      But bear in mind that in 1987, this was “new age” and not specifically “smooth jazz” – or, at least the name didn’t exist yet. Now KTWV is all but a soft AC.
