Any lifelong Minnesotans remember the glorious radio station that was B96. The station sadly closed down in 2009 and ever since then, the twin cities airwaves have been devoid of an all hip-hop radio station (although of course 89.9 KMOJ plays amazing hip-hop during Tite at Nite and there are a couple alright throwback hip-hop stations).
Fear not, for as of 3 pm today Go 95.3 was launched with Mr. Peter Parker, one of the legendary DJs of the good old B96 days, as its music director. They’ll be doing exclusively hip-hop with a focus on local artists. #blessed
