DBR is a 24/7 stream-type station. I do agree that the Beat Chicago station and that Classic Hot 97 Live 365 station are better run. The Beat Chicago (back when they were WBMX.com) also had a B96 tribute station (among many other old school online stations they once had) and that one was also better in presentation than DBR.
I do give DBR credit for trying and there is potential. How would this station be retooled to make it sound better? A better algorithm in balancing the uptempo dance and the more-midtempo urban songs would be nice. Drop the hip hop altogether and add the Energy 92.7-era songs, perhaps? At least DBR doesn't play any of those love songs/ballads B96 played back then.
