Astral has changed the format of CIBX 106.9 Fredericton. Formally
known as "EZ Rock" and "Capital FM" their now calling themselves
"Today's Best Music" and still keeping the "Capital FM" slogan. I
haven't listened much, but haven't heard anything outside the current
top 40, so they must have dumped their light rock stuff and occasional
80s songs they would play.

Astral's CJCJ in Woodstock is keeping the same playlist as CIBX, but
are still calling themselves "EZ Rock". I think CJCJ (and even CIBX)
are taking quite a beating from WQHR 96.1 in Presque Isle, which seems
to be picking up more and more New Brunswick advertisers and is
focusing more on the province with news and weather info. WCRQ 102.9
in Calais, which plays the same programming as WQHR (an ABC feed),
also has a good foothold in the NB market.
