Re: 101.1 is no longer an oldies station!

Welcome to the New 101.1 Jack FM. It's a new generation of radio station for New York.

What is Jack?

Jack in New York is a dramatic change from traditional radio formats. You told us that you are tired of stations that play the same 300 songs over...and over...and over.

101.1 Jack FM is playing what we want…the best songs from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, right up through today no matter where you first heard them. Just listen, it's like your iPod on shuffle.

Join Jack as we blast away the traditional rules of radio with something different...

It’s fun, it’s fresh, it’s what New York has been looking for.

Re: 101.1 is no longer an oldies station!

I just found this history, which I thought was interesting:

CBS` first FM station, the station went on the air on 12/1/41 using the call letters W67NY on a frequency of 46.7 MHz. On November 1, 1943, its call letters were changed to WABC-FM to agree with CBS` AM station, whose call letters were derived from the name of WABC`s former owner, the Atlantic Broadcasting Company. The FM station moved to 96.9 MHz in 1945 and its call letters were changed to WCBS-FM in November, 1946. WCBS-FM moved to its present frequency, 101.1, on 9/21/47. Rock format 1969-72. Changed to rock 'n roll oldies format on 7/4/72

WCBS-FM played its last oldie at 5 PM on Friday, June 3, 2005, following which the station changed to the "Jack" Hot AC format.

I don't know about your dad's, but I am annoyed there are no country stations....think about it...the most varied region in the country and we have no oldies or country and we are down to one classic rock station (i think)

Well like 1 and a half classic rocks. Thats kinda what Krock is. But I agree. They could get rid of 102.7 and 106.1 since they play the same as Ktu and z100

My friend worked part-time for them. He just found out today that he doesn't have a job anymore - he's in shock. No warning for the employees at all.

Yeah, and his father worked for them for years and years (retired now), so it was a family thing.

what about the 50's and 60's? What about Cousin Brucie? What about the love hour, our half hour hour half hour? LOL
OMG I grew up listening to this station from the back seat of my parents 74 Chevy Nova, I laughed the first time I heard a U2 song and thought I had a different station then realized the song was 20 years old!

I don;t htink NY was looking to change CBS fm at all, everyone plays the same da mn music now Chat Icon

Double sadly for me, that this won't affect my parents as they just got XM satellite radio in their new car and I on the other hand REFUSE to pay for radio.... for now at least.

ETA: if you go to their site, you can hear a bit of the music. Happened to be an oldie at the time but they are also playing Gwen Stefanie Chat Icon I will definitely miss the interviews with old bands and in studio live sets.
