    In my opinion, I would consider a station playing songs by only one artist as a stunt format leading to that station launching its new format, and not for closing out a station's previous format.

    From one old-timer to another, I remember the last hours of Super CFL.

As I prefaced (attempting to play off the religious future of "the Sound"), "whoever has ears to hear" -- in other words, those who might understand and remember the historic radio format change I was referring to. In 1976, legendary Top 40 radio station WCFL Chicago switched to beautiful music. In the weeks before, WCFL aired ads for former competitors wanting to pick up the abandoned Top 40 audience WCFL was leaving behind. I believe it was WCFL midday person Bob Dearborn who called those radio stations "vultures". The final 15 minutes of the sign-off was hosted by the late Larry Lujack, who had promoted the idea that he would announce his choice for which "vulture" radio station WCFL listeners should tune to. His announced choice was KHJ Los Angeles. Followed by a mock plea for Top 40 listeners to remain as new beautiful music listeners. He then played a clip of the Ronstadt song I mentioned before playing a 'CFL specific version of Reunion's "Life is a Rock". Perhaps the board is too L.A. centric to know the story, or as in your case, too young. Either way, it clearly fell on deaf ears. Sorry for the diversion.

    In case anyone is interested, audio of the Top 40 WCFL sign-off is at https://youtu.be/c_PEjXMp54M "Get your clothes off and get in the tub"!

    Sound Program Director Dave Beasing says that since they'll have at least 30 days (and up to 45 days maximum) to say goodbye (as David E posted earlier),
    special programming could be in the offing, such as A to Z, Roll The Dice, guest DJ appearances (such as Mark Thompson, for example).

    Since the transaction's announcement was made on Tue. Sept. 26, that would make for
    The Sound's sign-off date being somewhere between Thu. Oct. 26 and Fri. Nov. 10, 2017.
