They first started at 94.5 (weak signal) and later took Q102's spot at 102.1.  Tune in tomorrow @ 5:00 to find out.  There is a slim possibility they may move to 97.1 

Right now they are nonstop looping Semisonic's Closing Time.  Seem to be running jockless.  I had a feeling something was up when they broke up Jagger Mornings.   Yes, I understand that Mondo has medical problems but Jasmine had already defected to KSCS with Hawkeye (Country).

How will the world go on if I can't hear a Red Hot Chili Peppers song every 30 minutes?

 

Seriously, end of an era.  With the death of Q102 and now The Edge, the radio stations of my youth are all but gone.  I rarely listen to anything other than KXT or The Ticket when I'm not listening to Spotify these days.

The only time I ever hear the Edge anymore is when my wife's alarm clock goes off. I haven't listened in years. It was great in the 94.5 days but after it took Q102's slot on the dial it never was the same for me. Once I found KXT I haven't had a reason to change the station.

They've gone all Christmas music now and all indications are that they're set to go Adult Contemporary after that as Star 102.1. Their Facebook page is encouraging listeners to go to 97.1 for the "Edge sound", but the few times I've channel surfed by it, it doesn't sound like they've changed their playlist that much. I have a hard time seeing how they serve any particular audience when they follow up The Head and the Heart or The Lumineers with Metallica or Ozzie Osbourne.

But really, who still listens to radio? 

 

People depend on radio for music about as much as they depend upon newspapers for news.

My radio alarm goes off to traditional radio. Sometimes, I listen to traditional radio in the car.

 

That said, I've been streaming Pandora on my phone more and more lately.

 

Here at home, I typically listen to music on YouTube.

90% of the time I listen to radio it's for Frogs, Stars, Cowboys, Mavs or Rangers.

I spend a lot of time tinkering in my garage, so that's where I get most of my listening in. Otherwise, I listen to the radio when I'm driving. Even though I have a couple ipods, a phone and a multi-disc player in the car I still listen to the radio moat of the time.

I listen to the radio in the car.  95% of that is either The Ticket or KXT.  And I'll listen to TCU/Cowboys/Rangers/Mavs games if I have something to do around the house and can't sit down to watch on TV.

Yeah, well, they have a good remedy for that.
