With WJAS' format change, the class is gone

For 30 years, I listened to WJAS all the time: while washing my car, driving and in the house. The hosts, like Chilly Billy, were entertaining, and the music was different than what you could hear on most other stations. In a time when most stations just play rap and country or talk about sports, WJAS was unique. It was the classiest station in Pittsburgh.

Now it’s gone, replaced by yet another talk radio station, this one focusing on politics — dull and lifeless programming. The last thing any of us needed was more talk instead of music. But it is especially upsetting when a station as unique as WJAS is taken away. For loyal, longtime listeners like me, this is ridiculous. Now there are even fewer things worth listening to on the increasingly irrelevant radio.
