End of an Era

I am so incredibly sad today because it is the final broadcast of my favorite radio station, 97.5 FM WABB. This radio station has been in Mobile since the 70's and has always been a major part of the community. They revolutionized the way radio stations did contests and helped out those in need. When I was growing up, I didn't even know there were other stations, WABB was the radio to me! I loved listening to Matt and Jay in the morning on the way to school and longed to hear my birthday announced on the air. I listened to "Party Like It's 1999" on New Years Eve 1999, and wondered what it was like to be buried alive as a stunt. I entered the contests and felt my heart race when I dialed them up. I was angry at Hot 104 for trying to call them lame. No station could copy them or take away their loyal audience and I will await their return. (hoping they will even if it is just a podcast or streaming online, or that the new station flops).
You will be missed.
