93.7 The Arrow KKRW stunting for format flip

Bye, bye 93.7 The Arrow KKRW and 2013

UPDATE
93.7 The Beat Houston replaces 93.7 The Arrow KKRW


Fans of 93.7 The Arrow KKRW will have a sad end to 2013 as the 20 year radio station is currently flipping formats.

How do I know? The classic rocker is playing Miley Cyrus as I am writing this. It has had announcements starting at 10am saying change is coming at noon today. [LISTEN LIVE]

Another recording said The Arrow will not exist after noon today in Houston.

"Is it just me or do the Led Zeppelin songs on 93.7 sound different today," KKRW program director Steve Fixx asked mikemcguff.com.

The last three Arrow songs played before 10am were:

Old Time Rock & Roll
Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band

Frankenstein
Edgar Winter Group

The Boys are Back in Town
Thin Lizzy

Followed by the following annoucement that change was coming.


The next songs were:

It's the End of the World as We Know It
REM

Wrecking Ball
Miley Cyrus

Rumor is the new 93.7 will be an urban station to compete with 97.9 The Box KBXX.

STAY TUNED FOR THE BEAT.

UPDATE
93.7 The Beat Houston replaces 93.7 The Arrow KKRW

    3. You lost another listener, and many more baby boomers. Guess you do not care, but I will not listen to rap garbage, words that you cannot understand and cursing IS NOT MUSIC!
      Long live rock and roll, hope the colonel, Steve and Kelly land at another radio station, I have enjoyed listening to them for a very long time.

    2. Ditto that, but I've said that sentiment about the company for awhile.

    3. I agree whole heartedly. That only leaves 106.9 The Eagle and they are not near as good as The Arrow was.

    2. Exactly! Radio in Houston sucks.

    3. When it comes to Houston Radio, you are in Mexico. Welcome to Mexico says Cheap Channel, and Cheapskate Cox. XM radio is mandatory. That's why Sirius is bringing back their 10 day free trial of XM radio, because they know Houston residents will buy their subscription in droves. Sirius should do XM television commercials depicting Houston radio. I want a job at Sirius working their marketing department!!!! I got the perfect television commercial. Drop your Radio station stock and replace it with Sirius. I expect a bull market on the XM.

    1. Regardless of loyalty it doesnt change the fact that The Eagle was wiping the floor with them

  13. Sad…but the playlist was always abominable. It sucks to lose a rock station, but the city will survive without hourly broadcasts of "Hotel California," "Another Brick in the Wall," "Old Time Rock n' Roll" or "Rock n' Roll Fantasy." The best thing about the Arrow was the annual ArrowFest…but even that disappeared in the past few years.

    1. On the Nosey! If I had to listen to one more clown say they were going to play a "deep cut", only to fire up another play of "Life in the Fast Lane" or some other hit we've heard a million times before I was going to lose it.

      Delete
  14. Great.... more music where the singer has never played a real musical instrument...or any real musical instruments on entire songs period!

  15. This is horrible news!! We lost 101.1 years ago and now 93.7!?! This was the only station that my father and I could agree to listen to together and enjoy what we heard. It would always be playing in the garage when he was in there before he died and everytime I turned it on I would be flooded with memories of him. This is truly a sad loss…

    ReplyDelete
  16. What? They still waste electricity on FM RF transmission? How antique. (Yes. I have a grudge against Houston radio since the post deregulation destruction and monopoly).

    ReplyDelete
  17. You people need to quit bitching!!! The Arrow went off the air for a reason, their ratings were low. Had most of you been listening more they wouldn't have flipped in the first place!!! Besides you all have 2 other stations to go to for classic rock.

    1. like what?

    2. 2 other stations for classic rock? I know 106.9, what is the other one???

    3. 107.5, which is just a clone of 106.9, anyway.

  19. This is really sad. Thanks for taking away another icon of Houston. I didn't realize that Clear Channel Media is owned by morons! There is more to H town than rednecks and rap/hip hop wanna he's.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Clear Channel has been owned by morons for years. Even Sunny 99 has gone slightly urban. I'm now listening to internet radio at home and Sirrus/XM in the car. Houston radio can kiss my ass.

    1. And the people that listen to this tripe talk like the above post. They do not use proper grammar, punctuation, nor spelling. Let this be a case in point to what is Houston is turning into.

  24. Clear Channel did the same thing to us last year at this time when they ditched Walton & Johnson. I don't really care for 106.9, but I guess I'll have to learn to like it if I want to listen to real music instead of the crap they're playing now.

    ReplyDelete
  25. What I wanna know is where is the petition to reverse this back or atleast to bring 93.7 back on a different wavelength.

    I want classic rock and don't care much for the eagle!

    ReplyDelete
  26. No big loss for this Eagle listener. Arrow has been going down hill past few years anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  27. This is bs the buzz sucks ass and the arrow is really all there was left for classic rock.....disappointed to say the least

    ReplyDelete
  28. Somebody translate "urban" for me..........is it the same as thing as (c)rap ?? Moving to Sirius.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Great, another rap station playing recycled garbage I've heard a million times before. Nobody wants to hear that mainstream crap. Do yourselves a favor 93.7 The Beat a play some good Hip Hop, we get enough of that bullshit from The Box.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Now I see why "The arrow is out from 93.7 FM to "The Beat" Maybe the album rock station may be move to either 97.5 FM or 103.7 FM very soon and lets the new station begin.

    ReplyDelete
  31. This city needs a station where they plays hip hop& R&B from the 90s and early 2000s with some 80s. That excuse for a hip hop station 97.9 the box is laughable.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hey mike, fuck you and your new hip hop station. There were only two stations on the air that played real music, not this urban garbage these fucking idiots listen to. We already have five other stations that play the same shitty songs over and over, why is it necessary to add another? Y'all need to stop thinking about your fucking wallets for once and think about what the fans want.

  33. And fuck you for having to approve my comment, so much for freedom of speech you goddamn Nazi

  34. As there are more advertising dollars in "low rent" goods and services, that's where the trend runs. The majority of those who are still listening to Class C fit into that demographic. If you are in a position to need the cheapest liability insurance or to finance $2000 worth of furniture, you are the desired demographic. That sounds demeaning but it is simple finance. There are so many alternatives now that those of us who no longer fit into their target demographic no longer have need for them. I truly miss the 1989 version of KLOL but clearly understand the medium is dead and how the purchase of our government safeguards by a few corporations allowed that to happen. Also, check out the stockholders of XM before rushing to subscribe.
