I have been a fan of this station since my early High School days. I was listening last night night and they were playing that "boots wit the fur" song. I said to myself, "that's cool they are playing absolute bullshit just to be funny." So i was researching this AM to find out that they changed their format to a z100 type of crap. BTW, as I tuned the radio further, the next 2 stations were spanish speaking followed by more 50 cent sillyness...sad

That sux. I have 106.3 programmed on my radio, but I flip through so fast, so I didn't even realize (especially since I usually end up putting in a CD anyway). I hate what the world is becoming :(

I put it on while going to work and I heard something by Pink and it blew my mind, I did a double take on the station and it's dead :(

don't worry "year of the black man" is here :rofl:
I'm sorry but that has got to be one of the most ignorant things I've heard on the radio this week. However, hip-hop is where it's at! T.I. is king! :cool:

Who is their target audience? Pre-teen girls who can't get 103.5? There are several stations with the same lame mix already.

Sigh... I was listening yesterday AM and thought the male DJ (normally a night guy, can't remember his name) sounded a little cranky. Now I know why.

Don't forget Brookdale's station if you're close enough. 90.5.

XM Radio / Pandora here :cool:

Thats the only way to go IMO. When Stern left k-rock and they switched to all talk I said "f that" and went with XM. O&A rule and now that I've had commercial & jock free radio (that isn't limited to my ipod) I can't listen to a second of terrestrial radio anymore. However, I do feel that the hostile takeover by sirius is BS since we lost all of the "good" XM music stations. Lithium sucks. How many times can I listen to a loop of Nirvana, Offspring, Green Day and U2? Don't get me wrong...I love those bands (minus U2) but the sirius programming directors just don't get it I guess. :getsome:

They sold out long ago. "In November 2000, WHTG was sold to Press Communications. WHTG then became known as G106.3, and took on a format that could be described as a hybrid of alternative and modern adult contemporary. "

It was still a good station after the sale, but not nearly as cool as the old "modern rock at the jersey shore days"

For the most part, I am enjoying the new format. Yes, LI sucks, but I appreciate the GD station, Bridge (27), Folk Village, Spa, Chill, etc. I'm at a loss with 1st Wave, but the comedy channels are more robust.

I gave up on commercial radio long ago, whether it was KRock or WSOU, it's all the same looped crap with 49 minutes of commercials per hour. I bought my Sirius at the discounted price before Stern was live, and traded it away for a new attic fan only a few months later. I have a friend that works there who says he can hook me up, I keep telling him no thanks.

The radio is just awful, period.

i like 90.3 livingston campus and piscataway high school radio.
they play EVERYTHING. folk/black metal on thursday nights, indie on fridays, jazz on weds, etc...

89.5 seton hall's radio is okay. occasionally a cool local hardcore act will pop up, but those days are dieing.

Mostly it's 91.5 (NPR / KEXP) and 90.7 (FUV) for me in the mornings. John in the morning 9-12 on 91.5 is great. 89.5 on rare days though I think I'm getting old and it doesn't do it for me as much anymore.
