So, Greater Media (or whoever bought them out) owns a cluster of stations in the Boston Market. One station is WBOS. Historically, WBOS has kept the call letters, but jumped several formats over its fairly long history. The latest format is labeled as Alternative. It ran under the name Radio 92.9 for almost a decade, and with the demise of WBCN and (later) WFNX, it has the distinction as the sole in market potential competition to WAAF. Now, WAAF is mainstream rock, where WBOS is marketed as an alternative station. But, both stations have the same issue. With a plethora of new rock and alternative being released, why are these stations locked in with still being heavy on 90s playlists? And, as WBOS rebranded weeks ago as Alt 92.9, there still isn't much of a change. This has me wondering, why aren't these stations getting the picture that they need to add some new music. I get the stance that tge younger generation is getting their music from other platforms, but, to not add new music, and make themselves a choice, they aren't helping the cause. In my opinion, FM might be dying as a music platform, but they are only speeding up their death with making the choices that they made. Outside of Country or Pop, these owners a tightening up playlists with the same songs. When WBCN was flipped to the HD2 wasteland, I posted on their message board that this was the issue with radio. I mentioned that FM needed to incorporate the same new music that SiriusXM incorporated into their playlists. I even referenced KROQ, as CBS owns both. Instead, I got my message deleted and the mod complaining that the station was alive and well on HD2. I wasn't so surprised. Look at the west coast stations. They play new and modern music in all genres. Why isn't this happening in New England, if not the northeast. I really don't like putting on a station called Alt 92.9 and hear Spin Doctors music. This might be just my preferrence, but what gives?
