WFNX is a very good and very impressive alt rock/rock station.

99X need to take some chances on some new talent. Stop corporatizing the crap out of everything!

So now we have 99x on 97.9
96 Rock on 100.5 and
Q100 on 99.7. lol
I'm not sure why 99x came back, they gave up there signal for Q100 to take over and now are back on a weaker signal that barely spans 20 miles. If they couldn't make it before on the larger signal how now?

Yes. I loved FNX in Boston and BRU in Providence.

That's great that 99X is back. Started listening to it again this weekend. The market sorely needed it. Thanks for the update.

Yeah I have had 99x on for a few days now. I also turned on WFNX in Boston for a little bit, but it just didn't quite jive with me. I'll give it another go, but I think 99x is just about perfect for when I want to listen to alternative.
