RIP 96X; Long live Boomin96! 

Just when everybody was finally getting used to hearing that one James song we'd all happily forgotten years ago, WIVG-FM’s throwback X-radio format has been changed to a throwback hip-hop format. Thanks to Flinn Broadcasting for continuing to make our drive time radio experience like a scene from Walking Dead where one of the main characters runs into the reanimated version of somebody they dated back before the zombie apocalypse. 

With its devotion to 80's and 90's-era hip-hop Boomin96 is currently serving up all that East Coast/West Coast rivalry you've been missing since Notorious B.I.G. delivered his "Long Kiss Goodnight."

Plus Run-D.M.C.'s "Christmas in Hollis."
