The Smooth Jazz format is on life support.   Some say the format is already deceased.   Was the format ever really “?” No, it was easy listening.

The Cleveland radio dial gets a big makeover a week early with Boom 107.3 which features and today’s alternative music. The station premiered today.   You can hear it at their website here.

This explains it! While I had my complaints about the absence of jazz (in a world of plenty) on the WAVE…what I woke up the other day and today is hideous.
Time to find another station to fill the a.m. and car radio bill!

“Hideous” is the correct discription. This is imitation singing with music. Boom 107.3 sounds like something from groups that have just started wnd still haven’t figured out how to develop a sound that’s enjoyed by many. I guess it is enjoyed by many if you want to count people who are drunk or high! Any sober person would ask “What the hell is that horrible sound?!” Please turn it off! Well, that’s what I’m doing, turning that FM station off. I’m not paying for 107.3 HD radio for smooth jazz or adult easy iistening. I’ll just have to listen to it over my computer on wnwv.com.

Now that “the wave,” has bottomed out, I am listening to 91.5 fm. They play jazz, sambas, new artists like Stacey Kent, Michael Buble and classic band songs. Much of the music is relaxing, too.

Now that “the wave,” is gone, I get my jazz and brazilian music need s fulfilled at 91.5. This station plays artists like Michael Buble, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Ramsey Lewis and classic band songs all day and night.. Much of the music is relaxing, too. Young people help and learn about radio broadcasting, there. WKHR.org isn’t going to change and disappoint it’s listeners.

I am throughly digusted with the new Boom 107.3 music.I was a lover of Wave music and I will not be listening to this new alternative music. Shame on the station for getting rid of The Wave. 91.5 here I come.

Smooth jazz is pretty much a joke with the fake percussion tracks and the cliche hooks. I like classic jazz and fusion of which was seldom heard on the Wave. I have listened to the new format and it has my ear! I like that it’s not genre specific nor stale. Sometimes change is good.

After listening to Boom for two days in a row, I am hooked.
It’s such a pleasure to listen to something that is different. It’s refreshing not to listen to the same stuff over and over. Micheal McDonald was getting way to much airtime at Smooth Jazz.
