102.9 The Point Becomes X102.9

As one of the last All-80’s stations in the country 102.9 The Point became a victim of cluster programming. Sister station WJGL’s “96.9 The Eagle” 70’s and 80’s based Classic Hits format was stepping on its toes and not giving The Point much room to thrive. By flipping to Modern Rock, X102.9 is able to flank sister WFYV “Rock 105” from Clear Channel’s Modern Rock WPLA “107.3 The Planet”. The Point went out with the same song that had launched it in nine years earlier: Simple Minds “Don’t You Forget About Me”. System of a Down’s “Chop Suey” ushered in X102.9’s life. Thanks to Dan Rubin for submitting this aircheck. http://formatchange.com/audio/355.mp3

WSMJ Baltimore Becomes “Channel 104.3”

The 104.3 frequency in Baltimore has been in a continuous loop of format changes since the demise of CHR “B104” WBSB in the early 90’s. There was Hot AC “Variety 104.3” WVRT, Soft AC “Soft 104.3” WSSF, All 70’s and later Classic Hits “The Colt” WOCT, Classic Rock “Baltimore 104.3” which later brought back the “B104” name under the call letters WXFB. Since 2003, the station had found some stability with Smooth Jazz WSMJ. With the format dying off in many markets, it was expected that WSMJ would eventually change formats. That change eventually happened on May 23, 2008 as WSMJ became Modern Rock “Channel 104.3”. The launch sequence includes a nice montage of airchecks taken from BostonRadio.org as...

“O-Rock” 105.9 WOCL Orlando Becomes “Sunny 105.9”

Following the departure of Howard Stern to Sirius in December 2005, WOCL’s Modern Rock format fell on hard times. Drew Garabo and Savannah were brought in following their departures from crosstown FM Talker WTKS to host mornings, but the format floundered behind 101.1 WJRR for the young male audience it desired. Finally on Friday, January 4, 2008 at 10:00am the station dropped Modern Rock and began stunting with Bill Drake’s “History of Rock and Roll” until the following Thursday, January 10. That day at 12:40pm, the station began a year-by-year montage similar to the one used by sister WCBS-FM New York the previous summer, which led up to the launch at 1:05pm and 9 seconds of “Sunny 105.9 – Orlando’s Greatest Hits”. http://formatchange.com/a...
