Smash Hits, 101-3 transmits from Chauncey, GA and blankets central Georgia with 50,000 watts and will be voiced by Benztown’s # 1 rated voice, Pat Garrett. Smash Hits is an exciting music format that is customized for each market, targeting the Gen-X audience and concentrating on 80’s and 90’s hits. Not just rock or new wave, but ALL the hits!
