What's everyone's thought about the future of the B96 street mix? It seems to be losing more popularity over the last decade after steadily loosing big name DJ's, getting shortened, and now on much later at night. Does anyone still stay up late to listen to the street mixes while they air?

I remember back in the day I would always listen to the Street Mix and record the mixes if I stayed in. Think those days are gone. I feel like their mixes are now just Top 40 remixes instead of actual local club songs, or even club mixes.

Some of that is not B 96's fault. Just how bad the Top 40 format is doing recently and they don't have nearly as much house music being produced locally like it was in the 90s and early 00s. What use to make the mix show cutting edge just does not have that feel anymore.

And moving it from 12-4 am I feel like the station just airs it for the sake of airing it. It also could be cause their former core audience is getting older. Now The Beat Chicago is my go to source for mixes on the weekends and they have a 4-5 hour lead in time before any mixes air on B 96.

What would be great is if they did some type of old school mix show on Sunday nights bringing back old school mixes. Tim Spinnin' Schommer does one on Facebook Live that features Freestyle and it extremely popular. I think there could be a huge audience for it. Even could air it on their sister station 104.3.

I haven't heard of "The Beat" 102.3 until now. Will have to give it a listen. Are the DJ's all new too?
