Re: Overplayed Classic Rock Songs

While these songs are burnt to a crisp, and it's a great idea to play deeper album cuts, it'll never happen, and I'll tell you why. To the average listener, these are recognizable songs.

Re: Time-Life Music on CD

I got in on Time-Life back in the early 90's. Have most all of the collections, from the early 50's to the 80's. Great stuff.

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

Classic Rock is so wide open these days. I guess it depends on what demo they're going after. Us old farts still like our Hendrix, Zepplin, and the Doors.

Re: 98.7 The Breeze: Announcers, Jingles, DJ'S, Morning Show, etc. Discussion

Well, I listened to this station for the first time today to see what everybody's having an orgasm about. What I noticed...and it sticks out like a sore thumb...is that the music is HORRIBLY pitched up. It's almost unlistenable. I especially noticed this on "Baby, What A Big Surprise by Chicago, Ten...

Re: The "personality" of radio stations

OK, here's my take on the formatics. 1) Frontselling three songs that are coming up after the break...this can be turn-off. What if a listener doesn't like one or two of those songs??? That's right...they'll punch that button. 2) I don't know if it's the computer system or sloppy board work, but I'v...
