96 Wave's Final Break?


Charleston Bloggers -- what happened to 96 Wave? Around 4:00 p.m. yesterday the office radio transitioned to some crappy, spinoff version of "Charles In Charge." Yes, I realize it sounds like a bad dream, but I know I was awake considering the light switches worked. A coworker promptly Googled 96wave's former website only to find it replaced by a horrifying sight...Chuck.

96Wave in its heyday was trendsetting and cutting edge with apparent staying-power in a cut-throat industry. At their start the sound of waves were played for, like, a week. Then they began the great music, and of course, it was a metamorphasis over time. Back to Chuck...let's just hope it doesn't suck as bad as it did today. Otherwise, we'll have to resort to the old CD collection back at the office next week. Most companies don't allow streaming music, nor am I sure if I can move around my own MP3 collection very easily since I am sans iPod to date.

Please post your opinion or behind the scenes info if you have the scoop on possibly the most recent corporate takeover. Thanks for visiting!

I noticed the same thing and I can't believe it! This just SUCKS...

I still think there is room for two contemporary rock stations in the city. I was just reading a couple weeks ago how the new version of the radio rating system (like the Nielsen for TV) is showing that rock stations have more audience than what everyone believed.

...Oh well, I hope that they keep at least the Free Beer and Hot Wings show

I keep checking the date... is this a bad April Fools joke... WTH?? My girls and I are beside ourselves... We only listened to 96 (except in the mornings that Hotwings show sucked)..

Well, it's confirmed - Chuck Sucks! We already have two stations here catering to adult easy listening. What the hell? Walking down the hall at work, we find ourselves singing along to Billy Ocean. Billy Ocean? How did this Benedict Arnold infiltrate our airwaves? If this isn't a sign of TEOTWAWKI.....
