John February 16, 2012 Reply 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. :/ Myron Falwell August 21, 2012 Reply 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. Jay Peterson August 11, 2015 Reply I worked for a station in Santa Cruz CA called KLRS (Colors) and it went on the air one month after The Wave did. The Wave was never a truly New Age station like KLRS was. Sting or Madonna is NOT New Age. Add a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
