80s, 90s, and now?

Post by bmw » Sat Dec 14, 2019 11:15 pm

There are still radio stations which use this moniker. I was driving in Saginaw yesterday and I heard it on 92.5 The Castle. A quick Google search shows that quite a few stations still use it (or some variation, like 80s, 90s, and today).

We're nearing the end of the 2nd decade of the 2000s. Shouldn't this slogan have been retired or changed like 10 years ago? "Now" apparently spans an entire 20 years.

I hope you aren't losing sleep over this.
I see the point but the moniker is sort of catchy like 90s, double zeros and today isn't.


I no longer directly engage trolls

80's are really all that matters to me with a little 90's. Could care less about newer music.

Not just 00's, but starting next month, there will be 2 full decades in-between as it will be the 20s. So you'd have 80s, 90s, 00s, 10s, and now. Just sayin'. Two lost decades (and for the record, no lost sleep).

"double zeros" lol...

I'd say 90s, 2000s, and today. Although I do agree, doesn't sounds as good as "80s, 90s, and now/today"

Doesn't WFMK brand as "'80s to Now"? Last I checked, many of the iHeart AC stations were branding that way as well.

92.5 The Castle has made no changes whatsoever to its imaging since current ownership acquired the station. The station is the poster child for stale radio!


Caroline Beasley is ruining WRIF. What a bitch!!!

101.5 the River in Toledo uses this slogan, and I believe WNIC uses it as well.
