It's a sin and a shame that Smooth Jazz 98.1 has been taken away from the city. I moved to San Diego in 1989 and lived by that station, the concert events and the best of all Anniversary Jazz Festival! Gone are the days of Kelly Cole and the others. Why are cities all over america excluding jazz lo see more... vers from the airwaves for crap!!!!!

First, my favorite station. Last night while driving home, you asked listeners to e mail in remarks on Fruitcake. My wife and I really like fruitcake, in fact, we bought our 4th from Costco. Already ate the previous 3. What you have to do is sprinkle a good RUM over the cake. Maybe those listen see more... ers how don't like fruitcake don't use enough Rum. Try it sometime.

I love the music this station is playing now! As a baby boomer (and there are a lot of us), I do find this music to be easy listening and relaxing. I can listen to KYXY when I want to hear the songs that they sing on The Voice or other shows. 98.1 brings a nice balance to choices. Thank you. As see more... someone who is not a jazz fan, I appreciate this station now for the first time.

How can I find the smooth jazz 98.1 that I use to live with? Day and night it was an oasis to me that pops and old tunes can never fill. Is there any place I can find where it went? I agree...what happened to the whole culture of that scene? What is more classy than smooth jazz????

Its even worse now its all 1980's sappy stuff. Bring back the jazz! 94.5 in Temecula has the right idea. 98.1 really sucks now.

KIFM is total crap! They used to be the best station on the dial here in SD. Now they are the worst. Whoever made the stupid decision to change formats in an idiot. Fortunately, I have discovered XM radio. Now I can listen to smooth jazz whenever the hell I want!

I miss the original format. I listened 98.1 Smooth Jazz since back in the 80's. How forget the Anniversary Festival Concerts every year, in the month of May in the Gaslamp Quarter?. Besides, I was updated about the smooth jazz musicians last albums, because the original 98.1 Smooth Jazz. Thanks and see more... greetings from Tijuana, México.

HATE the new format. There is NO STATION now that plays smooth jazz. KIFM succumbed to the hundreds of other radio stations that play the same old songs over and over and has no unique identity anymore....

Write something on this wall! Why can't your station play two music selections in a row with hyping your dial position or call letters? And why do you bother to program such inane comments before going to your extended commercials?

Google Smooth Jazz San Diego for the full story, but the short version is that when Orbatron (the radio station version of the Neilson ratings) went remote/electronic rating instead of the old manual system, the ratings of Smooth Jazz Stations in several markets took a nose dive. Low ratings, low in see more... come from advertisers. Managements immediate response was to change the format. and fire the DJ's. Money talks in radi

Too bad once again management has stepped in and screwed things up. I am a San Diego native now living in New York that does not have any contemporary jazz radio. Huge huge disappointment!

OK, where is the Jazz? What the heck happened. I have been listening to Smooth Jazz since 1976 when I first discovered this great San Diego standard. I go to Japan and hook back up with my Jazz station and all I hear is the same old music that every other station is playing. I do not understand see more... why you took away the one thing that set San Diego radio apart for all the others.

We are considered one of Americas finest cities and you take away our only REAL Jazz station! It's NOT RIGHT!! You have to find away to bring it back to all the loyal listners! 98.1 JAZZZ did something for the city of San Diego and beyond. The "higher ups" have to get together and make it happen!!!!

I grew up listening to this award winning station. My family, extended family and I are in disbelief that smooth jazz no longer played. 98.1 helped give San Diego a sense of place like no other. I have a lost a piece of the city that I will miss terribly. Please bring the jazz back!

WOW!!!! 98.1 "WAS" the mainstay for that epic sound you had for smooth jazz and all those artists. What a huge disappointment coming from someone that streamed from NH to keep the one part and San Diego that made it so special and can't find anywhere else. Now it just sounds like Bubblegum top forty see more... with a whole bunch of artists that can't even sing without a voice correction machine. This just officially bummed out this native stranding in the east!!! Words can't even cover it :o( Give us back our old 98.1

i can't help but agree with the previous comments!!!!! 98.1 is no longer what it used to be. For so many years i never bothered to change the station either at home or in the car. I was living in south america for a while and even tuned into it there on the computer. Now i am looking for another see more... station constantly. `please go back to what made you the only station to listen to

all I can say is, what a disappointment! those of you in north county closer to temecula may be able to pick up KMYT which is a great smooth jazz station. We'll have to see if we can get them to strengthen their signal so all of SD can enjoy it.

If this "new" format is suppose to be so special how come there are so few positive remarks about it? KIFM made Smooth Jazz what is is today. If you wanted to know what was going on in smooth jazz, KIFM was always THE source..This made KIFM always so fresh and new all these years.. Now it sounds so see more... bland and is no big deal! Please reconsider and bring back SMOOTH JAZZ!!!!

While checking out Anthology and Jessy J, I ran across a Lites Out (jazz?) with Kelley Cole @7:00 Sunday on KPRi 102.1. Guess I will have to wait until Sunday to get a fix of smooth jazz locally??? Need to check this out more. At least there is still Pandora, etc.for jazz at home. KIFM lost this see more... serious listener a long time ago when they went to their current common format.

I have listened to 98.1 for at least 20 years. I kept listening to it and realized that something wasn't right. The DJ kept saying "Smooth 98.1". What the heck? Smooth Jazz has been part of my life, and a comfort to me in difficult times. I don't understand why they had to change it. I have to see more... try to find another station to replace it - if I can.
