Jack is Dead; Radio Listeners Rejoice

The Village Voice reports that their version of Jack FM, which is probably very close to our version of Jack FM on 93.1 is going away, headed back to the oldies station it had been before the switch.

The Voice's music blog says:

Jack, that insipid radio-format that's supposed to sound like someone's— the captain of your high school football team's? — iPod on shuffle, is not long for New York, Crain's New York Business reported today on its web site.

Is this station hated in LA too? I'm all for hating bad radio, but what's wrong with a Tom Petty/Cure/Prince set? Plus – no DJs. Mostly I'm just curious if there's a Jack-FM hate-party going on in LA that I wasn't invited to.
