94.7 WCSX Goes Deep

Deep Trax HD2 Free Preview This Weekend

WCSXThis coming weekend, Classic Rock WCSX-FM 94.7 will take listeners deep into the music vault with a preview of 'CSX's HD multicast station, "WCSX Deep Trax".

The WCSX Deep Trax Free Preview Weekend will kick off Saturday, January 27th at noon and continue all weekend through Sunday night, all without commercials.

WCSX harnesses the power of HD Radio to provide listeners the highest fidelity ever available on FM radio- and even more choices. Deep Trax features the lesser heard gems from deep within the classic albums. WCSX Deep Trax delivers enormous variety with virtually no repetition and even fewer interruptions.

Responding to our listener feedback of features such as “Classic Rock A-to-Z”, Deep Trax HD2 is hosted by the station’s on-air personalities Ken Calvert, Jim Johnson, Lynne Woodison, Karen Savelly, and Steve Kostan. It provides 24/7 access to those Classic Rock treasures that may be a bit outside the radio musical norm.

94.7 WCSX debuted Deep Trax, a special HD Radio multicast station, at the end of July 2005 with the unveiling of the HD radio broadcast. Both stations transmit a digital signal that provides CD quality sound and has the ability to display more text information than a traditional radio. Fans can listen to WCSX Deep Trax through special HD radio receivers available in tabletop and auto receiver models now or by simply logging on to

Here’s just a sample of some of the titles featured on WCSX Deep Trax:
BEATLES/Abbey Road: “Her Majesty,” “I Want You,” and “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer”
DOORS/L.A. Woman: “Hyacinth House,” “Crawling King Snake,” and “The Wasp”
STEVE MILLER/Fly Like An Eagle: “Wild Mountain Honey,” “Blue Odyssey,” and “You Send Me”
TOM PETTY/Damn the Torpedoes: “Century City,” and “Louisiana Rain”
LED ZEPPELIN/Houses of the Holy: “The Song Remains The Same” and “The Crunge”
