Remembering B94

Like many Pittsburghers who grew up in the 1990s, B94 was my radio station of choice.

So when it died in the early 2000s, I was sad. Every morning on car rides to school, I listened.

I listened to the eight top songs at 8 p.m., and I called in to request songs, too.

So in September 2007, CBS Radio Pittsburgh (the owners of 93.7 FM) began a weeklong Christmas playlist with promos suggesting Pitts_urgh was missing its B.

It’s true. We were missing the B!

On Oct. 5, 2007, B94 returned. The first song was “SexyBack” by Justin Timberlake.

But in January 2010, the B was gone.

On what would have been B94 2.0’s third anniversary on Oct. 5, 2010, I wrote this post.

I miss B94 a lot, even in an age of nonstop music apps and iPods.
