The long goodbye for The Sound 100.3 now has a fixed end point as the classic rock station is set to go silent at 1 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16, according to statements on the station’s Facebook page.

The station, which broadcast classic rock for nearly a decade in Southern California, and featured such longtime popular Southern California DJs as Uncle Joe Benson, Cynthia Fox and Rita Wilde, announced its sale to a Christian broadcasting company at the end of September.

Because of the unpredictable amount of time it took for the sale to close, employees and listeners of The Sound had no clear idea of how long it would stay on the air. Initial reports suggested it would be gone by the end of October, but November came and The Sound played on.
