Hip Hop On Y100?!?!
By Maria

I own a 98 Honda Civic.  I love my car even though it has no CD player or a cassette player.  Isnít that pathetic?  Well, I rely on my car radio to keep me company with great tunes during my alone time in the car. 


Then Friday morning on  my way to work, I started my engine and 50 Cent was rapping on my radio.  What the F?!!  I donít remember programming my radio on a hip hop station?!  I looked and I looked again, yup it was Y100! 


Shocked and confused, I tuned in to WMMR with Pierre Robert on.  Oh, so I see..  Radio One suddenly had a change of heart and turned an alternative rock station to hip hop!  What were they thinking?!!


I have nothing against Hip Hop and RnB. I even listen to these kinds of music and of course danced to it too.  But donít we have enough Hip Hop and RnB stations in Philly?  Do I hear a ďHell yeahĒ? 


Philly is a great city and it is full of character.  What made this city is itís diversity, in people, culture and music.  Without an alternative radio station, that represents more than 1/4 of the music lovers in our city, we are living in a place of ennui.  And thatís not what Philly is all about!


This is pissing me off, as much as it saddens me.  And I am not the only one!!!  Let us not let the original Y100 stay off air without a fight!!  Go to Y100rocks.com and sign the petition. 


Y100 is one of the great supporters of  Local Music in the Philadelphia area, that is one reason Y100 rocks!!!
