Curtis Media is in the process of rebranding “96 Rock” WBBB Raleigh/Durham as “Radio 96.1“.

The station’s new website features a letter explaining the changes to include a broader playlist and a jockless presentation. Listen to the launch of “Radio 96.1” at FormatChange.com.

You told us you wanted to hear a greater diversity of songs with music spanning from the 80s with artists such as Guns N Roses, REM and John Mellencamp; to 90s music from Nirvana, Gin Blossoms and Green Day, to Classic Rock from Led Zeppelin, Steve Miller Band and Aerosmith and even some newer music by artists like Nickelback and Linkin Park.

You also said you wanted to hear A LOT more music, without a whole bunch of useless talk. And that’s why Radio 96.1 will always deliver “More Music” and “Less Blah Blah Blah.” Our goal is to make Radio 96.1 the best reflection of your musical tastes and preferences.

The change comes as Clear Channel’s “100.7 The River” WRVA-FM is running Christmas music in place of its normal Classic Rock format leaving WBBB as the only Rock outlet in Raleigh/Durham.

The first hour of “Radio 96.1” consisted of:
Blondie – One Way Or Another
The Police – Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic
The Red Hot Chili Peppers – Soul To Squeeze
Kid Rock – All Summer Long
Bryan Adams – Run To You
Matchbox Twenty – 3 A.M.
Bruce Springsteen – Hungry Heart
R.E.M. – Man On The Moon
The Eagles – The Long Run
Loverboy – Lovin’ Every Minute Of It
Bob Marley & The Wailers – One Love
REO Speedwagon – Keep On Loving You
INXS – Need You Tonight
Supertramp – Give A Little Bit
.38 Special – Hold On Loosely
