Farewell The Vulcan, 105.5 FM goes “legacy”

07.6.2009 by Andre Natta · 11 Comments

1055-logoThis morning folks expecting to hear Lex & Terry as they were getting ready for work on 105.5 The Vulcan were surprised to instead be listening to the Steve and Leah Morning Show being simulcast from WERC 960 AM.

The change is not a temporary one as the station’s owner, ClearChannel Communications, posted this press release on the new website for 105.5 FM this morning. This marks the most recent change in the history of the frequency. It had most recently been a gospel station, consistently ranking as one of the top 10 stations in the market for almost three years until its format was changed in December 2006.

    The vulcan was the only station I would listen to . Now I have to listen to classic rock channels , cause the only good channel we've had in a long time got taken away from us . If I wanted to listen to people talk I would go to a town hall meeting or somthing .

    I've gotta say, I'm liking the new 105.5. I'm a talk radio addict though. A good mix of local and syndicated shows. I WAS very sad to see The Vulcan go though…

    Well I know where to find the idiot that those villagers are looking for. Great morning show, awsome music, faithfull listners, I can see why they would turn to this useless crap. I have an idea when ya get a thought pull the cue tip out it’s too far in!!!

    ARGH! I hate this! God, how I was pleased to find a channel like the Vulcan down here. I was listening to the Rocket in Huntsville and wasn’t looking forward to losing it. The Vulcan was an excellent alternative, even if I didn’t like Lex and Terry much. Local is better. We need modern rock! Sheesh! Nothing can grow and blossom here but county bankruptcy.

    Thanks ClearChannel for continuing to provide Birmingham with crappy radio, and this city wonders why City Stages is always a failure.
