Fab 94.3 is now The Drive 94.3

FAB has officially been rebranded as 94.3 The Drive. I'm not sure if this should be in this thread or another. They now play more 80s music. My guess is they're commercial free for the weekend.

http://www.943thedrive.ca/ is the new website.

Apparently The Drive billboards have been spotted around Winnipeg for the last week or so and this change is what was expected (as the Pattison group uses The Drive branding in several markets).

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

Ohhh... I see!! I'm in Minnedosa so I didn't know that. Anyways, with this change comes the dropping of the 60's music so The Drive only plays songs from the 70s and 80s. That should tick a lot of people off. This is trying to compete with BOB by the sounds of it.

Fab hadn't been playing 60s in quite some time. They had only 9 songs older than 1969 in rotation.

Yes they did change today. The DRIVE billboards were on Pattison electronic billboards and since they own 94.3 and other Drive stations out west this was a good guess.
Their Facebook page says that they will play some 60's music but I am not sure what some means.
Not a huge change and they BIG FM and CITI FM all classic hits stations of some sort. Yawn.
