Detroit’s Bone & Oasis Go Dark

92.7 104.7 The Oasis 94.3 The Bone Detroit Bubba Love Sponge WGPR Smooth Jazz Rock
Martz Communications has ceased operations of its pair of HD fed translators in Detroit.

While Smooth Jazz “The Oasis” had been operating on HD only while awaiting its move to 92.7, Modern Rock “94.3 The Bone” had just added the syndicated Bubba The Love Sponge for mornings.

Both station’s Facebook pages feature the same statement: “All good things must come to an end.
We’re sorry to say that The Oasis has ceased operations today. Thanks for your support Detroit. You’re the best.”

Bone PD Holly Hutton added, “Hey – Just wanted to say Thank you to everyone who listened and supported us. I know we had signal issues…but my personal experience at this station was a positive one. This company really celebrated true radio programming and gave me an opportunity to learn and discover that radio could be FUN again. I appreciate Martz and the time I had here and the friends I have made. From the inside and out; it was the radio that I fell in love with a bzillion years ago. I’m not sure if you’ll hear me on the air again…but if it’s meant to be, it will and I’ll talk to you then. xoxo ~ Holly Hutton”.

Both translators debuted last April 20 with programming fed by HD subchannels of 107.5 WGPR. The Oasis has struggled with interference issues with WIOT Toledo.
