I listened to the brew since it started broadcasting. Why the format changed? A lot of people loved the format of 80's music. It's the music I listened to and love.

103.5 and 104.3 play 80s music too.

So does 103.9.

106.7 had played Alternative...but they switched to hip hop and basically took away the only good alternative station Columbus had. So now 105.7 has changed to that.

I liked 105.7s mix also, they were more rock oriented than the others. But, aside from longtimers like WLVQ CD101 and WNCI, stations will come and go and formats can change without any notice. Its best not to get too attached.

I think 103.9 also seems a bit more rock oriented...and 96.3 is mostly classic rock.

CD101 moved over to 102.5 from 101.1. So even it changed...although it was just a move on the dial. 101.1 is classical music I think.

Columbus needed it's Alternative station back simply because 102.5 just isn't doing it these days. 106.7 used to be it but they changed. Now 105.7 is taking over which I'm very happy for.

102.5 needs to go back to the format is was playing back when Andyman was still alive. Back then it was a very good station. Now they just play B sides no one has ever heard of with an occasional hit. It seems they also turned the bass down because I always have to adjust my EQ to get it to sound just right when I turn it there.

I gave up on CD102.5 a long time ago...there is a difference between Alternative Rock and B Sides...there is a reason B Sides aren't hits...because the mostly suck.

I really didn't understand the need for a 3rd hip station since we had 107.5 and 97.9 mostiy plays it too...

Listened to the top 5 at 5 today on 102.5. Didn't know one song that was played. Meaning I never heard that song before. Granted I don't listen to much of that station anymore but you would think the top 5 alternative songs I would at least have heard of 3 or 4 of them.
