Re: Overplayed Classic Rock Songs

I forget who's playing what, but some of the earlier Top does sneak out on occasion. Sirius/XM has them show up on the Classic Vinyl and Classic Rewind channels, and on Deep Tracks occasionally. I recall when Eliminator came out that our college station didn't jump on the hits, but gravitated to dee...

Re: Overplayed Classic Rock Songs

"Carry On Wayward Son" . I saw Kansas in concert years ago, and I swear they played other songs I knew as well. It couldn't have been just that one song in different tempos. Most ZZ Top songs played from "Eliminator". I love the band and have their albums even up to the present day ("I Gotsta Get Pa...

Re: Lost Classic Rock Songs - Detroit version

"Megaforce" - yeah, I remember it coming out and not getting enough notice. "Autobahn" - way ahead of its' time, and it's amazing that it was a hit single in edited form. There's a couple week period around '74 or '75 when the Billboard Top 40 featured such a variety that I was blown away by the rea...

Re: Lost Classic Rock Songs - Detroit version

"Muscle Of Love" - Alice Cooper (just gave this whole album a relisten, and it's better than I remembered) That one fights with "Love it to Death" as my favorite ACG album (From the Inside takes the #1 spot overall). Big Apple Dreamin', Never Been Sold Before, the title cut, Working Up a Sweat...gr...

Re: Lost Classic Rock Songs - Detroit version

Did not know that "Contact" sampled this song, thanks for that bit of trivia! You're welcome. Music discovery is fun for me, so I'm glad to share. Mike, the Spotify Playlist is looking good. My liked songs playlist on there has over 3,600 songs, so It's well-stocked. I could do a thread on pop song...

Re: Lost Classic Rock Songs - Detroit version

I had thought of "Tightrope" earlier today...good call! I also like Doucette's song - how about Kim Mitchell's "Lager And Ale", the underplayed "Fits Ya Good" by Bryan Adams, mentioned in the WLLZ thread, "All Over Town" by April Wine, and "Feel It Again" by Honeymoon Suite? I used to catch Good Roc...

Re: WLLZ Deep Cut Saturday

Powerline's relative worth is what it is, however most stations would run it in the off hours so that it wouldn't get caught in the regular programming stream. I remember hearing it (on whichever Detroit station) while driving to my job at a different station. It was o.k., and I didn't mind having i...

Re: Lost Classic Rock Songs - Detroit version

Yeah, "Like It Or Not" was one that disappeared quickly, but it's still a great song. I played "You Might Recall" on a station once (off playlist) and although some of the staff gave it a thumbs up, the CD started skipping, so my foray beyond Selector Land was cut short. How about something from the...

Re: WLLZ Deep Cut Saturday

The same way "Powerline" fit onto the stations it used to run on (it may still, for all I know) - it doesn't. It just runs and people stay tuned or not.

"No Time To Lose" - The Tarney/Spencer Band "Run Runaway" - Slade "We Ride Tonight" - The Sherbs (Daft Punk sampled this one in their song "Contact", and did it well) "People Who Died" - The Jim Carroll Band I liked "Saturday Night" by Herman Brood & His Wild Romance, but that may not have crossed i...

Re: WODJ Jingle Package

It's interesting to hear those, as I'd been offered an on-air job at WODJ in 1998, but was in a different market and wasn't ready to move on at that time. I can imagine using the package amongst the playlist songs, and how it'd sound. I sat in on a jingle tracking session once - it was fascinating t...
