Dropped in on KQXR/100.3 The X lately? You might think you accidentally locked on to sister station KJOT/J-105. The station has changed its playlist and jettisoned the “New Rock & 90s” tag. New liners, secondary voice and liners touting that “the X rocks.”

New music isn’t gone, but the blend is what a lot of people have been saying one of the Journal stations should do.
