THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT
97.1 THE EAGLE IS BACK.
Super-mega-ultra thanks to aishy for bringing it to my attention!
For those of you who don't live in the DFW area: 97.1 The Eagle is pretty much the ONLY hard rock station on the radio. We also have 102.1 The Edge, which is the alternative station, but to hear the hardcore crap you really needed The Eagle. About...oh...four or five years ago? I was still working at Subway when it happened...The Eagle went off the air. It became a light listening station, an oldies station, a Hispanic music station...
BUT NOW IT IS BACK TO BEING THE EAGLE. AND IT IS ON THE SAME FUCKING FREQUENCY. AND...HOLY SHIT...IT'S ALL I CAN DO TO KEEP FROM WEEPING WITH JOY. Right now, my radio is tuned to 97.1 and Pearl Jam is playing. IT IS A FUCKING CHRISTMAS MIRACLE.
I have no idea if any of the DJ's came back, I know most of them went to other stations (a few went to The Edge, everyone's favorite Cindy Skull went to 93.3 The Bone). I have no idea if they've fucked up the musical content at all, but so far, so good.
HOLY SHIT. I AM HAPPY.
EDIT: I found a post Jacob made when it first went off the air, in May of '04. So it's been three and a half years.
