Effective this weekend, you will notice a tweak to the format. It's
not because I was tired of country.
In the past few months, Tallahassee lost
both its classic country and its oldies station. It had already lost smooth jazz and a softer oldies before that. We haven't

1.) Gold-based Soft AC
2.) Country and classic country
4.) Adult standards
is. overall, a slightly softer format designed to appeal to adults aged 35 and up. It's a niche format and is not what I would

and have continued to build on it since that time.
If there's a song you think we should be playing,
