    Looks like an update of the "Jammin' Oldies" format that had a brief run of popularity in the early '90s. Lasted longer than old-school hip-hop, but not by much.

    It's not generally a popular idea to announce a format change ahead of time. All a station gets is bad press, lots of complaining listeners (more than you thought you had) and needless questions. The only group that needs to be told and deserves to be told is the existing customer base. They can be advised, but not too far in advance.

    If the new format is "secret" (as in you want it to be a surprise to the competition) then you'll not talk to record promoters and generally keep it quiet.

    Back in the days of the 50's and 60's when stodgy MOR stations were flipping to Top 40, very often the staff was told at the end of the day, while the new staff was waiting in a hotel with all the music on carts or in boxes, jingles ready and clocks ready to tape to the studio window. The last Doris Day song would fade out, and suddenly the jingle sang, "W-H-K, Color Channel 14, color radio!" and Danny and the Juniors took us to the hop.

    This really wasn't a dramatic format flip. It's not like the station went from Top 40 to Country. It had been a Rhythmic Oldies but now KOAS is adding some Rhythmic AC to its playlist, I suppose in an effort to make its demos a bit younger.

    To my ears, it really isn't that much different. I would guess most listeners wouldn't notice much of a change. I've just been hearing "Oh, Girl" by the Chi-lights (1972), "The Way You Make Me Feel" from Michael Jackson (1987), "Ain't Nobody" by Chaka Kahn and Rufus (1982), and "Baby, Baby, Baby" by TLC (1992), plus "You" by Nicole Bus from last year.

    I guess the real change is adding two syndicated shows... Steve Harvey in mornings and Keith Sweat in evenings. But those are Urban AC shows. I wonder if KOAS is still airing its own playlist during these shows? I doubt Steve Harvey or Keith Sweat have The Chi-Lights, Michael Jackson and Chaka Kahn in their playlists.
