Radio station 104.9 is back!
At the end of 2005, the radio station at 104.9 suddenly and violently changed format from mildly alternative to Spanish. In a swoop, one of my favourite and commonly punched-up presets in my car became obsolete.
Of course, my habit of cycling through radio stations to find something good playing right this second (a habit that my sister shares, although I am a rank beginner compared to her) included this old favourite stop for quite some time after the changeover. And me. I’m so dumb. I would stop on this station and lean forward, listening hard. Like in five minutes I’m going to “figure out” Spanish.
Eventually I removed the preset from the list. Acceptance. And closure.
But it’s back, baby! As stated on a concise bulletin on MySpace (thanks Krysti!), 104.9 is now back to its old format, which I would describe as “very much like 105.3 except slightly softer”.
Spread the word. And enjoy the reincarnation of an old friend.
