IT’S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT
A message from JACK FM owner Sanford Cohen
It all started back in 2012 in Lake Havasu City. That’s where Arizona’s Hometown Radio Group and JACK FM first got together.
We had a few interesting people telling us that we’d never make it without playing requests. Then, there were the know-it-alls who said radio is dead.
Not only did JACK FM take over the Colorado River, but it renewed the idea that radio station programming experts actually can create huge playlists better than amateur mobile device stuffers.
Since we do all the work, of course we deserve all the credit! But we will take cash or items of value. It took time, but eventually we were able to bring JACK FM here to the Prescott Quad Cities and Cottonwood in 2014.
The very first song we played?
“It’s the End of the World (As We Know It) by R.E.M.
You don’t have to download anything (unless you want to listen on line) and we don’t require you to share your personal information (unless you want to be alerted when we are having a contest).
Best of all, no need to wrack your brain thinking of requests. Give that cranium a well deserved break and just enjoy what we’re doing.
Playing what we want. No news. Just music and a few smart alecky observations from our staff. That’s what it’s all about. NOT the hokey pokey!
