April Fools Day brought two new Country stations to the Seattle market...

KPNW 98.9 dropped it's unsuccessful 14 month old Triple A format and returned to it's previous Country format and brought back the 98.9 THE BULL branding complete with Fitz In The Morning.

After 30 years as a Hot A/C, KPLZ Star 101.5 slapped on a Cowboy Hat at 2PM when it became 101.5 HANK FM Real Country - Real Variety.

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