I am not personally aware of the history of that 103.9 prior to about 1990 when I first scanned across "The Wabbit." Which was live and local; so they've had local programming for many years prior to 2004, minus maybe some years when they were Spanish, and I don't recall if it was local during the Spanish years. I don't know the station and history prior to "The Wabbit" years, but my guess is that it was live and local given the time frame and media landscape during those years.
I agree that the last month or so on The Fox has been some of the best radio that I have heard in a very long time. Not only in music, but, presentation, and genuine connection to the listener/audience -- which is for the most part gone these days.
The reality is that we are losing more and more suburban signals to out-of-towners. I'm not sure how that's legal for those local communities. We have almost lost the ability to have talent work their way up to downtown Chicago radio (though these days, is radio broadcasting even truly enjoyable anymore?).
We need a radio Time Machine, to take us back to when radio really was....
