Los Angeles and New York City have always downplayed country radio compared to the sounds of urban but this time they went too far. While country music has not been good to liberals it is still a great music to follow and every city deserves a country radio station. This is a major culture loss in my opinion.
With no Country station left in the LA market, former KZLA listeners are trying to convince someone else to fill the format gap created last week when Emmis switched the station to “Movin 93.9,” with a Rhythmic Pop Contemporary format and Rick Dees in the morning.
The mega-mergers in radio have taken away lots of the best programming and disc jockeys but we still have satellite radio with XM and Sirius. The best way to protest this change if you are a KZLA listener is to turn it to Air America on the AM. That will teach them!
My advice: KZLA should have played more Dixie Chicks.
