    I cannot understand how a city like Philadelphia, which always embraced a full time Standards format cannot have one like this. I would imagine their would be more listeners than what they are going to achieve in LA. WPEN had fantastic numbers their whole tour..

    What will happen to the HD subchannels on 105.1? The sound quality is so poor on the HD 3 of 105.1 – I hope they re-evaluate things when this flips.

      “Poor” quality as in mono and slightly grainy? Nothing we can do about that on an “HD3” station.

    This is like the 7th or 8th time he is trying standards on 1260.

    RIP Kmozart 1260. It was great to have an AM classical station, maybe the last in the country, while it lasted. They would let a major classical piece play, beginning to end, whether it was in the middle of the day or the middle of the night, and had far fewer interruptions than the nominally noncommercial KUSC which constantly interrupts the music with talking, promotions, cutesy blather and fundraisers.

    Goodbye K-Mozart.

    (NB Jim Svejda is still awesome.)

    Seems like they’re the “format du jour” station.
