The day the music died

To the editor,

The days of "good times and great oldies" are numbered, my friends. The songs you've loved to listen to again and again are being reformatted for a new adult contemporary station on your FM dial (as opposed to 96 on the AM). The conversion should be complete between July and August of this summer. I received this information when I phoned the Maritime Broadcasting System station to inquire about a few newly formatted songs on the oldies station.

I am devastated, betrayed, I feel like my best friend is moving away. I'll say goodbye to my favorite songs, my favorite line-ups, the music that has been encouraging me to sing along my whole life. For those of you who will also mourn this loss, I offer my condolences. But don't forget, "The magic's in the music and the music's in me!"
