"The Loop meant something," Erich Mancow Muller told Robert Feder on Tuesday, hours after his final show on WLUP FM 97.9. "It was the stuff of legend and of Chicago heritage. I don't think people realize what they've lost ... yet. It was a 41-year-old psychedelic trippy guitar-driven freak-out dream of a radio station that is waking up to the realities of 2018." Cumulus Media, which sold the station to Educational Media Foundation, ended the classic rock station's current programming on Tuesday and will cease operating The Loop later this week.
