A Second Death for Smooth Jazz WJJZ

WJJZ was the smooth jazz station of Philadelphia for a long, long time. For over a decade 106.1 was the home of jazz music in the Philly region.

Then, in 2006, it was usurped without notice by Clear Channel, becoming a soft rock station.

WJJZ managed to return several months later at 97.5, thanks in part to fan outcry. There it's managed to stay, until two days ago.

Now, once more, WJJZ has vanished from the airwaves, to be replaced by a soft rock format.

At least this time the new management posted a letter on the official web site, explaining what happened. Still, this was a station I used to relax to at night, so I'll miss it.
