Roundhouse radio to remerge as Jazz station

It may work for them as there is a void in this format in Vancouver. The original CJAZ failed largely because of its poor signal in downtown Vancouver. What they mean by ryhthmic soft contemporary jazz is a bit hard to determine. Maybe its a blend of smooth jazz and more traditional.

It will be patterned after Durham's HD Smooth Jazz stations in Oshawa-Ajax and Hamilton. Here is a sample of their recently played music:

The station will be rebranded as WAVE 98.3.

Durham dumped the smooth jazz format in Hamilton a few years ago ... they are now country.
When they were smooth jazz I was a regular listener.
They do have a smooth jazz online station.

Roudhouse's application reminds me of the now defunct Seattle Smooth Jazz Station at 98.9 which was very good.. then the consultants......and dont get me started ....lolz

They will probably get moderate success, apply for a transmitter and power relocation and maybe a frequency change to avoid interfering with chilliwack, then a format change to compete with the various rock formats. Yes, I am cynical.
