If you like Beyonce, you're going to love the new programming at 92.1 FM in Houston, because the radio station is now all Beyonce, all the time.
According to ABC's KTRK-TV
, as of Tuesday morning, the station switched over from a local news, traffic and weather network to a Beyonce network, which is set to be re-branded B92-FM. The 'B' is for 'Beyonce'.
They literally will only be playing Beyonce music, around the clock, only to be interrupted by regularly scheduled advertising blocks.
Queen Bey has five studio albums under her belt.
Dangerously In Love contains 15 songs and comes in at a length of 60:52.
B'Day contains 11 songs, and a total running time of 37:40.
I Am... Sasha Fierce has a total running time of 41:40.
4 contains 12 songs (on the standard release CD) and has a length of 46:33.
Beyonce is her longest running album, with 14 songs coming in at 66:35
Meaning that all her albums together (not including Live albums) comes in at just over 253 minutes or 4.2 hours. So… not exactly the 12 days of FXX's Every Simpsons Ever marathon.
However, not everyone is happy with the change. Specifically, the 47 employees who were laid off Tuesday, reportedly without being given a heads up that the transition would be happening.
