WTF: What the...Facebook
Missing in Action [May 2023]
Remember in 2018 when Billboard published the top 600 songs since 1958? Like others, we focused on what was in front of our eyes and not what was missing. Well, when we were updating our crossover page recently (click on Top Crossover Hits tab), we noticed one Four Seasons song should've been ranked higher and at least a dozen tracks are curiously missing. Oh, and let's not forget the DQ Dozen....

The Sky's the Limit [April 2023]
Last year we mentioned some Twitter alternatives. Here's another one to watch.
Elvis on Big Screen and Small Screen [March 2023]
PBS will broadcast tonight Elvis Presley's landmark TV special, which first aired in December 1968. His biopic on the big screen was a hit last year.
Streaming Interrupted [February 2023]
Radio Danz claims it was hacked last Friday. Why would anyone want to hack a listener-supported Web station?
Christmas Just Came Early
Like most new stations, KREV is playing the same 100 recurrents for now. It's not often we don't recognize something on a mainstream dance station. After some detective work, we ID'd one that piqued our interest.
Me & My Toothbrush - Are You Gonna Rock (2020)
Some of you might know him as Calippo. You're welcome. Scroll down for the launch playlist.
Better Late Than Never [December 2022]
You'll recall KREV was supposed to return to Bay Area airwaves with a dance format last May. Well, it finally happened last month. The owner ended up working with a New Mexico station. So no "Pure FM" and say hello to "Pirate Radio" instead. You can listen at pirate927.com. And check out KSFE Albuquerque at pirate967.com. We would categorize KREV as mainstream dance and KSFE as something a little different (it sounds like one continuous mix).

Give Him the Bird? [December 2022]
As Twitter continues to struggle under new ownership, here are just a few articles with some alternatives.
We don't tweet, but we read good things about Mastodon.
Breaking News [May 2022]
According to Inside Radio and other sources, a dance station could be returning to the San Francisco Bay Area airwaves around May 7. We'll believe it when we hear it. Even if it turns out to be true, it might be just a temporary stint until a buyer is found. Someone registered 927purefm.com in April. If nothing happens by Memorial Day weekend....
Win Some, Lose Some [December 2021]
In case you missed it, these two things happened during 2020 lockdown. KPBA-HD2 Austin, Texas ("Mega") stopped playing dance music after 11 years, and ElectricFM came back on-line.
The January issue of Mega6 is out. Enjoy.
Will They or Won’t They? [September 2021]
As dance clubs around the country begin to reopen gradually, Billboard will probably resume its club chart in the next few months if not weeks. Will they heed our advice and fix it at last? Don’t bet on it.
Avicii Celebrated by Google (?!) [September 2021]
Google displayed an Avicii Google Doodle to celebrate his 32nd birthday in about 45 countries. If you clicked on it, you would've landed on a short YouTube video.
Speak of the Devil [June 2021]
According to USA Today, Facebook is one of the mobile apps you should remove from your phone.
Free at Last [June 2021]
It’s so liberating not having to deal with Facebook’s myriad software problems. We didn’t get a chance to ask the burning question: how are you guys doing out there? Did you survive the last 15 months with your sanity intact? We hope you and yours are doing fine. At least Zoom didn’t catch you doing something in private.
This Is What You Came For
We figured if Dance Radio Post didn't do it...who? Here's KREV's launch playlist (excluding mix shows). It's deja vu all over again because it was 20 years ago when we published KPTI's playlist, which led to the birth of Dance Radio Post. KREV and KPTI have different owners but the same frequency.

A Googlewhack is a search term (limited to two words [?] with no quotation marks) that results in exactly one match. Well, we have something that's kind of a Googlewhack. If you Google the following
lyrics "i just can't stay mad at you forever"
you'll see exactly one match--and it's one of our pages! Guess this means we'll have to keep the key lyrics feature on our Megamix page.
