They are still around as an online station.

Makes sense. Who the hell owns a radio?

People listen to terrestrial radio…for music?

That just seems so weird to me.

Like, I can get sports or talk radio. Music radio nowadays is just such shit. It’s the same short rotation with 10% of the airtime for ads and 20% of the airtime for shitty aimless banter and heavily-diluted (and usually heavily-opinionated) “news”.

It’s amazing mobile streaming has totally killed the platform.

ETA: yeah obviously talk radio news is heavily opinionated but at least you know what you’re getting. Typical music station jocks aren’t who I’d trust for any semblance of “news”.

That drunk driver one only works if you read it with an RI accent.

Back in the 70s I honestly switched between them and WBCN. BCN was radical back then. Living in Rhode Island I could get both.

The cool thing about the 94 HJY one is that they still play the same exact music!

I had a 103.7 The Edge one for awhile lol

What was 99.7? The X? Or wasn't it the edge?

dotknott t1_iujy6an wrote

It was both! WDGE (1995–97) and WXEX (1997–99) the edge was modern rock, X was hard rock.

Same here... first radio station I actively listened to. I was about 10 or 11. Then switched to HJY a couple years later.

Great collection! Here's one of my favorite RI bumper stickers.

I can still hear the melodic station call 'JB105' as clearly now as when I was listening to it in bed with the headphones on while I was supposed to be asleep

Im sort of weird with memorabilia. Im not a pack rat, and I dont have gobs of boxes. But mags, newspapers, concert stubs… dont take up much room

When I was in HS the early 2000s, I would have been so proud to have a BRU sticker on my car!

Those save the bay stickers, I think they still make them. They’re hard to come by though.

Can I buy a few of them off you? I want to expand the Stickerolla.

argument_sketch OP t1_iuk829o wrote

I'd give 'em to you for nothing if I had extras, but I kinda wanna keep them :-)
