Whether it be Friday night or even Sunday morning, I cannot remember a single day in my life going by without me listening to Majic 102.1.
Anyone attempting to argue against its excellence would be mercilessly countered with the laughter that is the Tom Joyner Morning Show, the essence that is the sweet talker, Kandi Eastman, the groove that is Funky Larry Jones, and the quiet storm that is Marco Spoon.
But, for some reason the future of this station has been on my mind.
What will happen when Houston’s majority grows out of touch with the old school music that is wholeheartedly offered through this station? Majic 102.1 would remain of course, but who will keep up the requests for Betty Wright, Chaka Khan, Anita Baker, Luther Vandross, Patti Labelle, Patrice Rushen, Regina Belle, Bobby Womack, Johnnie Taylor? The list goes on.
I cannot even begin to imagine Majic 102.1 overcome by the future Lil Wayne or Taylor Swift. I respect their art, but even still… I cannot envision this station as their home.
I know it is entertainment’s job to keep up with the constantly evolving interests of the people, but it is in my highest hopes that we keep 102.1 alive with the soul that it old school.
After all, I cannot be the only youngin’ eager to do so, right?
