Net Standards Format Finds A Terrestrial Home

STANDARD MEDIA GROUP Internet radio station MARTINIINTHEMORNING.COM has found a second home -- on a terrestrial radio station. As of JANURY 1st, it can also be heard on CONTINENTAL BROADCASTING previously Talk KPHX-A/PHOENIX.
Based in NORTH HOLLYWOOD, CA, the MARTINIINTHEMORNING.COM format was conceived by former CLEAR CHANNEL programmer Brad Chambers, who has created a "Classic Cool" of Contemporary Standards that features legends FRANK SINATRA, DEAN MARTIN, ELLA FITZGERALD along with more contemporary figures such as MICHAEL BUBLE, HARRY CONNICK JR., DIANA KRALL and ROD STEWART.
"We Boomers still love our ROLLING STONES and BEATLES CDs, but we've heard all those songs over and over." CHAMBERS said. "We love those songs but they're not making many new rock 'n roll oldies. So we go looking for something new -- especially in social situations ... We have friends over, we're making martinis and 'Brown Sugar' by the ROLLING STONES doesn't cut it. But SINATRA's 'One for My Baby' does! We have graduated from rock concerts on the green to an intimate jazz show with seats near the stage. The martini glass has replaced the beer bottle. We can still knock 'em back, but with a martini glass, of course."
