The shift from Smooth Jazz to Rock in 2008 was one of the more exciting things to happen in local NYC radio in years. Matt Pinfield did a great job carving out a more Contemporary niche against the Classic vein of the venerable WAXQ 104.3.
Anyway, I guess the once-monthly listens when my contemporaries in the area rented a car wasn’t enough to sustain it. And Jersey also has WDHA 105.5, making WRXP somewhat redundant there. For the most part, it’s iPods and iTunes, Satellites, and Pandora-esque streaming for the Gen X tail-end/Millennial set the station was geared toward. Has been for some time now.
WRXP was one of the “last, and best, g’damn buggy whips” in an era of automobiles.
Fare thee well.
