As many of you now know, around noon today 93.7 FM ceased to become a classic-rock station -- good riddance, some say -- and flipped formats to hip-hop and R&B, rechristening itself "The Beat."
Thus far, according to 937thebeathouston.com, songs have included Sevyn Streeter and Chris Brown's "It Won't Stop," Slim Thug and Z-RO's "Summertime," Hustle Gang's "Memories Back Then," Drake and Rick Ross's "Hold On, We're Going Home" and Destiny's Child's "Soldier."
Rocks Off has a radio specialist now monitoring The Beat and will report our findings New Year's Day. Happy New Year!
