Listener Comments and Reviews

I listen to WBTJ-HD2 and I love the smooth jazz on that station. I bought a HD radio for the specific reason of being able to listen to smooth jazz. I remember finding WBTJ several years ago when I first got my radio and have not changed that station since. I have told everyone I know and some that I don't know about HD Radio and WBTJ. I also have noticed that WBTJ has gone through some changes. The style of smooth jazz played has changed and is slowly moving away from the smooth jazz format that I enjoyed from the beginning. I have also noticed that you have even changed you lineup name from smooth jazz to urban, hip hop, and r&b. Please do not change my favorite and the only station that I listen to. I will have to throw my radio I the trash because I will have no further use for it.
