Chattanooga State Radio Change Boggles The Mind

Thursday, April 17, 2008

Chattanooga State Community College was home to the student-run WCSO. The listener base was soft rock like Sunny 92.3. The radio station played a wide selection of the hits from the 60's, 70's and the 80's. It was all commercial free.

After hours, it would kick into automation with wonderful "Nature sounds". It ranged from the thundershower, snow storm, meadow sounds, a creek flowing to other sounds of nature. It was very peaceful.

In the late 80's, WCSO changed its format and began to play a different style of music. The alternative music style was hot and in command. The soft rock went to alternative music. WCSO became WAWL- The Wall. The radio station went through the transition without a hitch.

Now the news of selling the radio station boggles the mind. I was there when WCSO went to WAWL FM 91. Now many were crazy about the change, but got use to it. Now, it looks like more change is in store for the Chattanooga State Community College's radio station.

I, as all of the citizens of Hamilton ... (click for more)
