Is 92.3 K-Rock dead? (New York radio station)

All I hear is talk radio on it now and I am very upset. It was the only alt. rock station in the tri-state.

Anyone know if it is defunct and if so if there is another station that used to be it?

i've heard them say that, but what the hell does that mean? this is simply no good. i cried when they took my favorite all-time station X-107 off and it went country and now this? at least this time i have satellite, but it isn't the same.

this is a sad day in the music industry!

I believe it's considered "personality radio"


When mega corporations (CBS in the Free FM case) own several stations all across the country, they're able to give a single brand name to their stations in every city.

And that's why many cities now have a "Free FM" and a "Jack"

Welcome to NYC radio.

They're all dying.

It's amazing that I can go home to CT and get more of a variety of music than in this city.

Amazing that they call it "free" when you're practically not allowed to say anything! (maybe Howard was the only one not allowed to say anything because that one person complained).

They must mean "free" as in referring to the cost of it.

How's DLR's show? I hear it's not too good, but he's only been on the air for 2 days now! Any new talent would need a couple years to really get going.

Wrong...had commercial radio been allowed to continue to butcher the music industry, it would be a sad day, but since everyone in NYC has to basically get sattelite radio, this is a VERY GOOD day for music

yeah. I'm glad music is getting phased out. It was the same clear channel play list anyways.

The Radio industry really changed on monday/tuesday. Get used to it.

Its going to be talk radio during the week, and music on the weekends. I don't know what genre though. There was just an article in the local newspaper about the changing format of the station, and how New York area just lost its only "new rock" station.

NYers:
I highly recommend a move to 107.1 "The Peak" in Briarcliff Manor (coincidentally the location of one of Stern's first jobs)for your listening pleasure. Check out the stream at http://www.1071thepeak.com. Not as hard as K-rock but they have tremendous programming. They go deep into CDs to pull out the good stuff.

Example from the other day that comes to mind:
Regatta de Blanc: typical cut would be Message in a Bottle, which everyone is sick of by now. They played The Bed's Too Big Without You.

WFUV ain't bad either.

First of all, before K-Rock switched to new rock and before Q104 there was no new rock station in NY..wnew and krock were classic rock, and Wdre on LI was alternative, but it was hard to get the signal...this is not the first time
