Letter: With the loss of local personalities, radio is becoming soulless

It has been wonderful seeing the letters speaking out on the demise of the wonderful format at WJAS.

Now I know that it’s not just me who has had empty mornings the past couple of weeks with nothing to listen to on the radio.

I grew up in an era when there were wonderful personalities spread out across the radio dial. But now as the business becomes more corporate, the stations are more of the same same same.

It is not just the music that is missed from WJAS … but those voices on the radio who were my friends. There are a thousand music channels on satellite and Internet radio, but those stations are soulless. It is wonderful people like Jack Bogut, Bill Cardille and Chris Shovlin who made WJAS a joy to listen to. They are missed.
