Re: 'The Point' gets it: Radio station revives more eclectic mix

YES about 3 weeks ago 98.9 did change to a variety format. something which
has turned me away from the station since i dont like what they play now.
98.9 was big into the 80's when they changed a year and a half ago and have
been working away from that mor recently. now 99.9 WMWX (maine's Kiss) has
been playing more 80's and pop it seems) 99.9 has also had a number of all
80's weekends where they play 80's non stop for 48+ hours.

This change made some sense to me since there seemed to be at least 3 (maybe
more)stations in portland 93.1, 98.9 and 99.9 all fighting for the same
market group.

i never listened to WCLZ much so i cant remember what their format was.

Take care
