For years ... as in since the 8th grade ... one of my radio presets has been set to 107.7 KSYZ. Back when I started listening, it was called "Sunny 108" and played hits from the 70's, 80's, and 90's (and maybe 60's ... I can't remember anymore). Shortly after I started listening, the "Sunny 108" moniker disappeared, and it just became known as 107.7 KSYZ. Also, at some point--maybe around the turn of the century?--the 70's music disappeared, and the station played music from "the 80's, 90's, and today."
On Monday morning, I flipped over to KSYZ while driving in to work. Instead of Matt & Julia on the morning show, I heard ... waves and seagulls??? I didn't give it too much thought beyond "that's odd ...", and I changed the station. The next day, I heard a voiceover between songs that said "107.7--The Island." I thought it was a stupid name for a radio station in Nebraska, though I get that it's playing off of Grand Island. Then tonight I learned that they fired Matt & Julia! Evidently, the station is changing formats, and it's now going to be geared toward older women. That's fine by me, as I've been enjoying the music, but did they really have to can Matt & Julia??? (And did they have to do it last Friday? That's cold.)
