    Thank you so much, not many people remember my internet oldies station. Streaming rates and other cost kept going up, but the oldies music library went with me to ez 87 fm.

That too was very good! Either 780 or 930 a. m. should play these oldies again or the Music of Your Life again.
    My remark was sorta tongue in cheek.....what "oldies" do you miss that are not currently being played in Jackson(?)...and because of the www web thing, it's also on the internet in stereo.

    Jackson would be a very tough sell for "Music Of Your Life". It is a format that still does well in retirement communities. The last time we did "MOYL" on a station(s) was back in 2002. One station we dropped it (sales declined year after year), the other we kept it because of the larger older retirement population (it did well there - and it was on AM).

    Oldies will do well as as niche in selected markets. Agencies won't buy it. A market like Jackson won't successfully support two oldies stations.
    WLYB FM
    96.3 Demopolis AL.
    100.5 Meridian Mississippi.

    WRYC FM
    92.5 Frisco City/Monroeville

    Grove1670, the format The Music of Your Life was on 780 around that time. However, it was later on 1400 (WJQS)around 2009-2010. I am very glad that I can hear it from my computer. However, it would also be good if I could hear it in my car.

    So, The Music of Your Life was on WCCL/WYHT (1590), WLRM (780), that FM station in Brandon (93.9), and WJQS (1400 - before it was oldies).

    Golden / all -

    Per your reference, prior to August 28, 2008, WYAB used to be on 93.1 FM and was known as "B93" - all oldies. The signal was never really good enough at the time to compete in Jackson. Even then, however, it was apparent that more people were consuming their oldies songs on iPods, Internet, and satellite radio, which made things tough with the kind of signal that we had (and having KQID 93.1 FM boom into Jackson from 150 miles away did not help). When we flipped to 103.9 FM and moved 16 miles closer to town, migrating to a news/talk format made more sense.
