I STRONGLY do not believe that this is an April Fools joke. The traffic on the Hot 107.1 board on FB clearly shows the demand and like for the format that this serves. All Access also did an article about this, talking to the PD of the station. You don't mess with All Access in that sense.
But here's my theory on WHY people in here would want this to be a "joke". There are those that WISH
it to be a joke because of their disdain towards the music (and yes there are a couple of people that HATE dance and hate someone like me for fighting for it), especially that we've been wanting such a format again since the loss of Pulse 87 on the FM and KNOW that in a market such as New York, there is a demand for it.
The words "niche" has been thrown around in here like tomatoes being thrown around in Spain. And yet for what WE are seeking, we also have to accept what's going on in the pop world as well. Yeah, put Rihanna, Pit Bull and Flo Rida in here too....so as long as Wynter Gordon, Nadia Ali, etc. get on there as well. You have to play all angles in this, and I get that.
Those same people also misunderstand what I say because they are "stubborn" to see things as they always have, but not wanting to understand from a core perspective. Which is OKAY actually because for those that are open to knowing, then we're here to help. But if the ignorance continues to block their view, then the hate remains.
I am very glad for those in the Denver area to get such a station and I do hope that whatever comes out of this, can expand to other markets. For those that love dance, support it
