Party 93.1 Returns to Florida!
Back in 2002, Party 93.1 lit up the radio with awesome trance, dance, and techno music. A few years back, Party 93.1 was taken over by rock music, which was really depressing.
Well, good news! After a few years off the air, Party 93.1 is back, and in HD!

Here is my personal story about how I came across 93.1:
[I posted this on a forum as well]
Right before 9/11, I moved to Florida, as my dad got a new job.
I was only 13 at the time, and my dad enrolled me in a school 45 minutes away from where we lived.
Anyways, I would get a lift home from one of the teachers, and he would always play 93.1 – but this was when it was a classical music station, LOL!
One day, he was driving home and I was in the car with him. He turned on the radio, and instead of his piano music, party music was playing [it was the countdown premiere!]
He goes what the heck is this? From that moment on I was hooked! When I came home, I turned on my radio to 93.1, and listened to it all the time.
I really loved that there was not too many commercials, and this was and still is the only local radio channel that plays this kind of music. I pretty much HATE any other genre. I WAS SO PISSED when stupid ROCK music took over! SO MAD, you had no idea! I was completely depressed. I did not have any CD’s, I did not have a computer, all I had was a radio to listen to music.
For 3 years, I listened to Party 93.1, every day, doing homework to it, cleaning my room, it was my life. I loved hearing the music every day when I woke up. I was really sad when the rock station took over and thought there was something wrong but I eventually got around to get on a computer and figure out what happened on 93.1. I found an online site [it was 93.1] but unfortunately the streaming music did not work.
I finally got my own laptop in 2007, and when I went online to the site, it did not exist anymore. I was so mad! So tonight, just randomly, I was looking up an old remix I heard on this station [Celia Cruz – Quimbara] and all of a sudden this website popped up!
If I have to make one negative comment about 93.1, the last year was getting really bad on the air. They played that awful song ‘Don’t you want me baby’ so many freaking times. I hated that song. Furthermore, there was these weird mixes that were just awful. Also, there was a radio talk show on Sundays which I did not want to hear. I wanted to hear music like the first two years. Lol, I remember the commercials on TV so well, “Party 93.1 only plays 6 commercials per hour” and there was the song Just Like A Prayer by Madhouse in the background.
I have one more comment to make, and I hope this radio channel stays alive forever this time! I’m 20 years old now, and I don’t want too see 93.1 go away, again. I don’t have an HD Radio, but I do have a laptop.
That’s my story ^_^
UPDATE: The website is now streaming live as of 2011!!!!!
