Last night 105.3 FM KINB changed formats from alternative to jazz to become 105.3 The Martini. I was actually in the car with my kids listening to 105.3 around 5:30 or so before heading in to Andy Alligators, and they kept playing R.E.M.’s “It’s the End of the World As We Know It (And I feel Fine)” over and over and over. At first we thought that they messed up but when we came out and heard Frank Sinatra’s “Love and Marriage” I knew that the format had changed.
I’ll admit that I’m going to miss having an alternative station to listen to in the car. Granted this one seems to have deserved getting shut down after all of the shenanigans that they pulled. Now I’ve got more reason than ever to get the CD player in my car fixed.
