Hi Eric,
thanks for the inspiration! I read your blog about the old style FM format and thought I'd tell you about a great station out here in Northern California. It's called BOB FM and it is formatted just like your description! We love it! In fact they are currently running a program called 9 at 9, it plays at 9:00am and rebroadcast at 9:00pm pacific time. They select a theme and play 9 songs related to that theme. That is how I found you. I am using some of your ideas. Thank You! If you would like to listen to BOB, you can listen at; it is an awesome station, give it a listen!
