The transfer will be executed one by one and we will close the PM funciton, the registeration function and the creating forum function in old aimoo.  

The forum data will be transferred is below:

2. the forum skin 
3. all topics and replies
4. all valid members
5. owner`s profile and PM ( it will be lost probably but not many)
6. forum balance

Except of above, all forum transferred will get free a month diamond.

In the past, on the message board, there's been talkaboutthe memories people have of theGolden 101.1 WCBS-FM, and how muchthey loved it, now miss it, and speculation regarding its demise. So, I thought I wouldtalk a little bit about that here and share with you some of my memoriesof the station and what information I can pass along:AfterMusic Radio 77 WABC began to change in the early 1970's, my favorite radio station became101.1 WCBS-FM, which had just adopted an oldies format -- the first of its kind in the nation. This was a natural and logical transition because now, all the great songs that WMCA and WABCplayed in the past were now considered solid goldclassic oldies! I also loved the fact thatCBS-FM kept the tradition alive of airing the type of Top 40soundingjingles that WABC had employed in its format. In fact, I loved their jingles in the 1970's so much, I actually recorded them on tape, and one day I'll postthemon the Internet for all to enjoy. Sadly however, they changed their jinglesin the mid 1980's, and while theywere still good,they werenever quite the same.In 1978, as a result of a letter I had written to the station explaining what an ardent fan I was of CBS-FM,they invited me to come to their New York studios for a guided tour and meet some of the disc jockeys. I wassoexcited!That day I met late afternoon drive disc jockey Dick Heatherton,who was waiting in the wings to begin his show. Then, in the broadcast studio I met Bill Brown between commercials while he was doing his mid-day show; lastly I met Joe McCoy, who was a part-time disc jockey for the station at the time and would later become its long-time program director. ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comThe Golden 101was at its peakfrom the mid 1970's until theearly 1990's, when because of the changing demographics, the format of the station slowly but surely began to change as they tried to appeal to a younger market. This change manifested itself at first when began to playless and less songs from the 1950's -- until they didn't playany at all --aside from Norm N. Nite's weekend show on Sunday night from the Rock and Roll Hall of Famein Cleveland.Next, theybegan to play less and less songs from the 1960's -- concentrating on a much smaller play list of what they called thebestoldies, while concomitantly giving more and more airplay tosongs from the 1970's and 1980's. Also, in 2002they cancelled Don K. Reeds "Doo-Wop Shop," which was a staple on CBS-FM Sunday nights for 27 years, as well as terminating Norm N. Nite's Saturday afternoon countdown shows.OnOctober 23, 2003, I attended a seminar at the Museum of Television and Radio in New York City called:"Motown, Soul, and Great Rock 'N' Roll" (which was also the station'sslogan at the time).It was an eventheld incelebration of CBS-FM'sthree decadeson the air as New York's oldies station. In attendance were Bill Brown, Norm N. Nite, Don K. Reed, Bob Shannon and program director, JoeMcCoy.At theconclusion of the meeting, we were able to meet and mingle with the guys, andI had some interesting conversations. Joe McCoy said thathe regretted the changes in the format at CBS-FM over the years, but that unfortunately they were necessary toremain a viable and profitable station, as well as to appease the powers that be at Infinity Broadcasting -- the stations parent company.I came away from this event with the overall impression that CBS-FM's days as an oldies station were numbered,and indeed, as we all now know, they were.Notwithstanding the disappointment we feelfrom the demise of this great station, it had a great run and has left us with a lot of great memories. It also provided a second hometo many of thegreat, legendary disc jockeys fromthe goldenyearsat WABC, includingHarry Harrison, Ron Lundy (Hello Love!), Bruce Morrow(Cousin Brucie), and probably the greatest disc jockey of all-time Dan Ingram.
