Look out KILO? KDZA wants to rock
Oldies station KDZA (107.9 FM) dropped the "Jet" moniker and the dusty discs on Monday in favor of an active rock format.
The station is also syndicating morning duo Lewis and Floorwax from Denver classic rock station KRFX (103.5 FM).
The morning show is not the only thing the local Clear Channel station is borrowing from its big brothers up in Denver: It's also appropriated KBPI (106.7 FM)'s slogan "KBPI Rocks the Rockies." Only, you know, with KDZA in there.
Nobody's really taken a run at KILO (94.3 FM) since the KMOM days. KILO has been pretty steady at No. 1 in the local ratings, so we'll see what KDZA can do. (Speaking of which, I hadn't even realized KILO broke up Ross and Mo in the mornings. Did that just happen?).
UPDATE: Mo took me to task for my up-to-the-minute radio knowledge. She says she left the morning show in April to spend time with her daughter. I plead unhipness and a severe Tool allergy.
UPDATE 2: Reader Brian M. reports that all is not lost for fans of the "old" KDZA - "You oldies lovers can rejoice...and buy a HD radio. KDZA 107.9 HD2 is ALL OLDIES. Its time to throw away your old analog radios!"
