WQCD PD Blake Lawrence stays on as PD for WRXP, while Brian Schlock has joined on as MD/Afternoons. The station has already received FCC approval for the WRXP call letters.
The station debuted with The Velvet Underground “Rock and Roll” and R.E.M “Supernatural Superserious”. The station’s website details the significance of those two songs as well as the music log for the first hour.
From CD 101.9’s website:
Due to a declining audience for Smooth Jazz over the past few years, we are sad to announce that Smooth Jazz will no longer be available on the 101.9 signal. On February 5th we launched an innovative new adult rock format on the 101.9 frequency called 101.9 RXP The New York Rock Experience. 101.9 RXP is a respectful and intelligent mix of new music, classic rock and alternative – we invite you to try it. If you are solely a Smooth Jazz lover, “Smooth Jazz CD101.9” will continue to exist on our HD2 channel
