Y100 Still Alive 10 Years After Signing Off
February 23, 2015 at 2:06 PM (PT)
TOMORROW marks the 10 year anniversary of the demise of former RADIO ONE Alternative WPLY (Y100)/PHILADELPHIA. On FEBRUARY 24, 2005, Y100 PD JIM MCGUINN and Promotions Director JOSH T. LANDOW launched the website Y100Rocks.com as a petition to bring the station back to the airwaves and as an online streaming radio station. While Y100 never returned to a fulltime FM signal, the station has lived on, through a couple of name changes, for a decade. Now broadcasting as Y-NOT RADIO (YNotRadio.net and iRadioPhilly.com) the station continues to be an indie rock taste maker and supporter of the local music scene in the CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE.
To celebrate this momentous anniversary, former DJs from the past decade such as JIM MCGUINN, DAN FEIN, MARILYN RUSSELL, LIAM STATIC, JEFF ST. PIERRE, JOHN VON, MARCO, CAT, HEATHER, ADAM B., JAKE RABID, CASEYGIRL, ANDRE, and more will rejoin current longtime hosts JOSH T. LANDOW, JOEY O., MATT MCGRATH, ROB HUFF, MATT SUMMERS, and ADRIENNE to look back at 10 years worth of musical highlights and memories. Guest DJs will infiltrate Y-NOT RADIO’s usual lineup starting this WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 26th through mid-MARCH.
