September 3, 2009 at 4:10 PM (PT)
Today at 5p ET, CLEAR CHANNEL Modern AC WLUE (100.5 LOUIE FM)/LOUISVILLE, KY flipped formats launching "GEN X RADIO" playing music from the '80s and '90s." The new format will cross cultures and format barriers with hits from grunge, hip-hop, hair bands, boy band genres and more. The artists heard on GEN X RADIO will include DAVE MATTHEWS, MADONNA, PEARL JAM, U2, EMINEM and others.
According to CLEAR CHANNEL Market Pres. BILL GENTRY, "GEN X RADIO is not a typical radio station. It’s focused on a musical experience. Our entire product team is extremely excited, and focused on making GEN X RADIO the best choice for LOUISVILLE."
CLEAR CHANNEL SVP/Programming JON ZELLNER added, "GEN X RADIO is a completely new concept. It captures how 30-somethings listen to music and ignores genres and categories. Simply, this is the music that shaped a generation of pop music fans and we believe every song in the library will strike an emotion while generating fans, not listeners."
Listeners can heard GEN X RADIO online at www.genxlouisville.com, or using their iPHONES or BLACKBERRIES using the iHEARTRADIO application.
