100.3 The Sound Schedules Final Days Before K-LOVE Replacement

Set the swan song.

After being on the air for nearly a decade, 100.3 The Sound (KSW), what has been dubbed as “the” classic rock station, will be replaced by a contemporary Christian station called K-LOVE in the upcoming weeks.

The decision was announced in September, after Entercom Communications Corp agreed to divest three of its stations to the Educational Media Foundation (EMF).

“We are particularly excited to see what God has in store for the people of Los Angeles, through our new station, Positive & Encouraging K-LOVE at 100.3 FM.  The people at Entercom have been a joy making this purchase possible,” said EMF CEO Mike Novak.

The Sound has been bringing classic rock to the SOCAL area since 2008 through its various on air shows such as The Classic Rock Morning Show, Uncle Joe’s Garage, 10 at 10 and Triple Play Thursday with disc jockeys Uncle Joe Benson, Cynthia Fox and Rita Wilde.

Yesterday (October 19) as the news for the replacement became more widespread, The Sound played its final rounds of “Triple Play Thursday” until midnight which included selections from The Beatles.

Although it is still undetermined when the plug will be pulled, the station has scheduled special shows on October 22 from 6-11pm “My Turn” Marathon which will include an encore presentation of the most requested guest DJs such as BB King, Joe Walsh and Steve Perry and on October 23 at 11am for “The Songs We’ll Miss From A-Z.”

But listeners can also have a chance to catch up with The Sound in their sponsored events lasting until November 5 for the “Walk to End Epilepsy.” The events can be found here.
