T.O. pioneer, Dr. Jay brings "Soca Therapy" to new radio station

If you've been listening to Soca in Canada for the last few years then you should know the name "Dr.Jay" and his legendary Soca show on the "old" FLOW 93.5 that "made you wine from 6 to 9 every Sunday.

Earlier this year, with a complete format change, many of the specialty programs were dropped from the station leaving Torontonian's wondering where they would get their next Soca fix. It seems the good Doctor has found a new home according to the official "Soca Therapy" website post earlier this week:

'So you heard from this one and from that one that SOCA THERAPY is coming back and we can officially confirm that the rumours are TRUE. Dr. Jay's immensely popular radio show will be returning to Toronto's airwaves in its new time slot on SUNDAYS from 5p - 8p, on Toronto's newest radio station G98.7fm. Keep it locked for updates on the premiere episode of the new SOCA THERAPY. Thanks for your continued support.'

Congrats again to Jay and the New KOS family. The station will be streaming live so you know we'll be tuning in when it starts.
