If they're not playing U2, I'm not really gonna dock them a point for it ;)

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

Wheels never played Billy Joel at any point. The original Wheels was an AOR station. At some point, the corporate programming suits did away with AOR, and started aiming for the lowest common denominator in listeners. Wheels was already Smooth Jazz when this practice became standard operating proce...

Re: Last Night's Storm

It was quite the light show. We were sandwiched between the tornado warning in Genesee and Shiawasee counties and, miles down US 23, the action in Ann Arbor heading towards Whitmore Lake. Lightning from all directions. But here in Brighton, no power flickers, no damaging winds, just a 15 minute loud...

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

I like some Billy Joel, but I'm gonna take a hard pass on the Bruce.

Methinks neither will be featured on this station very much, if it all.

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

Admittedly, the type of programming I would push would maybe have flown on a college station 20 years ago. I bet if I had my own station (and it already looks like an air studio in my basement), I'd maybe pull WDFN numbers, if I was lucky. It almost makes me wanna buy brokered time on some piss ant ...

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

Well yeah, that's the radio. If I woke up tomorrow with the average radio station's library downstairs, I'd do things to my ears that would make Vincent van Gogh blush.

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

Oh, Idk about that...the 90s are probably my most represented decade in music in my collection (fitting, since I came of age then). But the YEAR most represented in my music collection is 1986. Figure THAT out. Between the albums, 45s, CDs, tapes and digital library...I am what you would call a prog...

Love S/T!

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

Speaking of preachy bands, two Nickelback songs come to mind. Breathe and Old Enough. It was the following album I got to hate them.

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

Grind came up on my iPod earlier, too. I think it's a tie between Jar of Flies and Tripod for my favorite AIC album, but I love them all. I noted the Creed songs earlier, and I would keep it limited to the three mentioned...before they got all preachy and annoying. Buckcherry's "Lit Up" might be ano...

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

I agree that rock is pretty flatlined. At least in the mainstream. Small wonder pop, rap and country are the big sounds these days, when bands like Disturbed, Trapt and Shinedown were some of the bigger rock bands before rock went in the toilet as something you might catch someone listening to. I th...

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

Couple of GREAT tunes that I know WRIF played in the 90s. Local H, Social Distortion and COC were frequently played and are always on my iPod. I would love for those songs to have a fighting chance! Deftones never seemed to get much love over the years, either. I don't know about you (and I'm sure I...

Another great AOR tune from bac...

Re: What Will Be The Next Format Change In Detroit?

MW could probably explain it better, but I THINK, at the time, ABC took the station in a more vanilla direction, and 955 kicked their ass. Then Kosbau wanted the flip to Doug to beat out WOMC (who may have had plans). I do remember the night DRQ flipped, Tik Tak was playing a cut from 50 Cent's new ...
