Dave FM Alum Launches EAV Radio
East Atlanta resident Margot Chobanian has turned to the web to recapture the spirit of the adult rock station that changed formats last fall.
When Dave FM switched formats from adult rock to sports talk, many in metro Atlanta felt pangs of disappointment.
Margot Chobanian, who held positions as music director and assistant program director at the station, decided to do something about it, according to AJC.COM.
She has launched a web-based station named for her neighborhood - East Atlanta Village Radio, or EAV Radio. (You can sample it by clicking on the playhead above this article, or going to the website.)
Chobanian recently told the AJC's Radio and TV writer Rodney Ho:
"Dave could have been a little more experimental," she said. "Not as much John Mayer, U2 and the Police... There is a lot of stuff people may have forgotten they liked or you think they'll like... There are people with a sense of adventure who don't want to get it from Pandora or their iPod."
What do you think of EAV Radio? In the age of free streaming music on Pandora, is there a future for web-based radio stations?
