SHE 103.5 FM Is No Longer "Only Rock and Roll," Has Some Competition on the Internet

Categories: Radio Daze

A local radio station whose name was once synonymous with rock 'n roll to many Miamians is coming back -- in a lighter, slightly less rockin' format.

WSHE was known in the 90s by its tagline, "SHE's Only Rock 'N Roll," before it changed to a series of other stations (most recently Spanish-language) and the call letters were transferred to a Gospel station in Columbus, Georgia. How the mighty had fallen.

Now Clear Channel Communications has announced that it's bringing the station back -- in a different version. The new motto is "SHE Plays Everything," and the mix appears to be an uncontroversial adult-rock blend that included, this afternoon, a transition from Maroon 5 to "Blister in the Sun."

But the story doesn't stop there, with another once-great local station being chewed into soccer-mom pap by the seething maw of Clear Channel Communications. It appears that after WSHE went off the air in 1995, a couple of internet radio stations peddling the name showed up.


On RadioSHE.com, the operators write that "A Few Of Us Got Together and Decided To Put WSHE BACK-ON-AIR Any Way We Could, And We Did.!" The site says that the new station was broadcast at low power at 105.5 FM for a number of years, but that frequency was shut down in 2006 for "legality complications." The source of the online signal reportedly "Is Based Out Of Aventura Florida Located In The CitiBank Building. Floor & Studio Room Undisclosed For Securty Purpose."

Another site capitalizes on the old tagline: ShesOnlyRocknRoll.com. The site claims "former Miami deejays" decided to bring the signal back online.

Now that Clear Channel has reportedly gotten its call letters back and revived something kinda-sorta like the old station, we'll see whether they try to shut down the internet competitors that have been using the name (one sells the iconic "WSHE" front license plates that were once associated with the station). We've reached out to Clear Channel and are trying to talk with the online operators. If you have any clues, drop us a comment below. Stay tuned.

Ain't Nobody buying into this new 103 she B.S. for 2 minutes. clearchannel is only playing copycat to the original wshe thats on the internet. This crap wont last. FM struggles & struggles to survive and this is another example. BIG1059 is another Horrid Mess of a wannbe Rock Station! The internet is Wacking the Pants Clean Off of many FM radio stations. No one tunes into FM radio anymore! and he's right, the orignial WSHE is on the internet. www.radioshe.com.

SHE'S ONLY ROCK N ROLL www.radioshe.com It's safe to say they are the Original WSHE ! Many are fooled by this struggling garbage on clear channels attempt to name it SHE. CC is failing at trying to bully the original WSHE She's Only Rock 'n Roll CC has DESTROYED the average community market. Good News is that Internet radio stations are flushing CC in the toilet.. Keep Rockin WSHE Miami FT Laud.. !

Thank God for the new 103.5. I only wish it was more of a rock oriented station like way back in the late 80's. We are sick and tired of that regaetton noise. We have to bring back Rock N Roll to Miami. Sg Dgj, I beg to differ, this is a breath of fresh air in a market largely dominated by Hip Hop and Regaetton. No, thank you very much, but I would rather listen to this new format. And before you say I am racist or whatever, please read this:  I am a latino (I was born in Cuba).

I just came across this article.  I myself want a job at the new times writing freelance testimonials.  Maybe the new times will give me a job too and I will write about all kinds of goodies that I want to write about. lol! My family and I have been an avid listener of WSHE Miami / Ft Lauderdale and I am not fooled by none of this crap!  Have Stefan contact the real SHE and maybe he will figure out whats really going on in the radio world.

I was never a fan of new times anyways.  It will always remain a low budget flyer geared towards the homeless and alternative lifestyles.
