Update 8/1: 92.7 made the flip to Classic Rock at 12am as 92.7 WKZF.
The WKZF calls are in place legally, as the new station takes on Cumulus’ 93.5 WTPA for the Classic Rock audience in Central Pennsylvania.
The first hour of WKZF consisted of:
Led Zeppelin – Stairway To Heaven
Heart – Magic Man
John Cougar Mellencamp – Crumblin’ Down
Kiss – Rock And Roll All Nite
The Rolling Stones – Paint It Black
Billy Joel – Only The Good Die Young
Wings – Live And Let Die
Led Zeppelin – All My Love
Alice Cooper – I’m Eighteen
Eric Clapton – Wonderful Tonight
Phil Collins – I Missed Again
The Edgar Winter Group – Free Ride
Dire Straits – Sultans Of Swing
Van Halen – Feel Your Love Tonight
Original Report 7/29: Hall Communications “Smooth Jazz 92.7” WSJW Starview/Harrisburg, PA has dropped its format and is currently stunting.
The stunt consists of covers of “Stairway To Heaven” interspersed with comedy bits from cartoons such as Space Ghost Coast To Coast.
The station’s website features the following farewell message:
The decision to end Smooth Jazz 92.7 was not an easy one to make. Many factors contributed to the change, including the fact that listenership never reached predicted levels and revenues coming in were not enough to support the station and keep it on the air. We thank you for being a loyal listener and for your support of the station. A new format will begin shortly.
As far as what’s next. Hall Communications registered 927KZF.com and 927WKZF.com on July 8. A request for the WKZF calls were made the same day. With the stunt consisting of covers of Stairway to Heaven, its not really a stretch to expect a form of Rock presumably Classic Rock coming to 92.7 on Monday.
