Got all kinds of traffic today to this blog’s August post on the death of the Globe format. The always-solid DCRTV brings news today that 94.7 come Monday is going “fresh” adult contemporary. A new promotional site features clips from Jason Mraz, Corrine Bailey Rae, Coldplay, Gwen Stefani, John Mayer, Leona Lewis, Third Eye Blind, Jordin Sparks, Sara Bareilles,and Daughtry, with John Mayer proving yet again that, after the first group of decent artists in the list, he remains the tipping point of suck. As disappointing as it was to lose the Globe format, losing the classic rock entirely is worse. The cheese of Big 100.3 is no substitute.
Hard to say yet if the new format is Top 40 for people who hate rap, or 107.3 for people who hate aging, but I think one of the two is right.
