It's "94.9 The Sound"
The new sound on 94.9 FM is "The Sound." It’s a mix of alternative, Triple A, traditional rock and some hot AC, intended to slice into WEBN’s audience. Artists vary from Green Day, The Clash, Smashing Pumpkins, U2, Dave Matthews, Nickelback, Sum 41, Coldplay and Nirvana to Jack Johnson and The Police.
At today, station began playing 9,490 consecutive songs – so we won’t hear commercials or DJs until early December. (They estimate it will take about 23 days to play that many songs.)
The hybrid format is aimed at listeners 25-34. Entercom managers -- Jim Bryant, Mike Fredrick from the former CBS Radio group bought by Entercom last week -- promise all local DJs (no out-of-town voice-trackers), with sophistication and humor, and not in-your-face (ala 'EBN) radio. They call it "a progressive rock station for adults." The refer to Jon Stewart and "The Daily Show" when trying to describe their goal for a morning show – "a little wittier, not your typical rock and roll station."That’s a tall order. We’ll see if they can pull it off.
