The relatively decently-rated KLSX is going to be flipped over into a top 40 radio station! Yay, another top 40 station!!! Orange County Register with the details:
Talk KLSX/97.1 FM will flip to a new Top 40 format called “AMP RADIO” at 5 p.m. Friday, CBS announced Wednesday.
Current talk show hosts Adam Carolla, the team of Frosty, Heidi & Frank, and Tom Leykis will do their final shows live Friday, with Leykis tossing the switch at 5 p.m. to “AMP RADIO,” which will begin with 10,000 songs in a row with limited commercial interruption “or about 28 days of just full-on music,” according to Dan Weiner, senior vice president and market manager for CBS radio in Los Angeles.
The format, described as playing “all the hits,” will also be online at http://www.ampradio.com. Artists will include Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, Rihanna, T.I., Kanye West, Usher, Britney, Pink, Kelly Clarkson, and Katy Perry, among others.
AMP Radio!!!! OMGZ! I had no clue where to listen to the above artists, so this is definitely a welcome addition to the airwaves. Who needs original talk radio with Adam Carolla when one can listen to an extra Katy Perry song. She kissed a girl and she liked it, you know.
