    Just goes to show you who the "target" audience is, at least in Clear Channel's warped mind = soccer moms.

    I grew up listening to that station, but stopped when Russ Martin left to do his talk show. Just like the KZEW & Q102, this best of the modern & classic rock stations north Texas offered are almost gone. Thanks Clear Channel. :mad:

    Isn't that the station Stern was on? 97.1 was on one of my 6 preselects.

    Stern was on 97.1 until 1997, Clear Channel didn't renew his contract after placing Eagle 97 as the highest rated morning radio show at the time. Thank God for 105.3.

    105.3 is pretty much all I listen to anymore. Howard in the morning, Russ Martin in the afternoon. I've heard every classic rock song 10,497 times, I don't need to hear them any more.

    Still sorry to see a rock station bite the dust, there aren't that many around any more.

    Russ Martin is having a field day this afternoon with the change. Its kind of funny that they started sliding downhill as soon as he left.

    I guess I am now forced to buy an MP3 hard drive for my car since the only good hard rock station in DFW has been sacrificed in the name of not pissing off the FCC.

    This really sux. Living in Lubbock, the first thing I do every time I drive to Dallas, is as soon as I get to the Smokestack Restaurant, I reprogram the radio to 97.1, the eagle, and 102.1, the edge. The edge is for the the new stuff, and the eagle was for blasting down I-20 with the radio cranked and Van Halen screaming.

    The scary part is that ClearChannel owns the rock station in Lubbock. (KFMX 94.5.) We will probably lose it too.

    ClearChannel can bite my a$$.
