    Heard their top-of-the-hour ID today, and its call letters are now KSUR, just like the last time around with the K-Surf branding and oldies format.

    Both formats sound great, I noticed the Standards format is on an HD3 over the air also, plus on line. Why these two formats are not being utilized in the Philadelphia market, either on one of the many failing AM’s or an HD2, puzzles me. The Philadelphia market always embraced this type of music.
