"I Can't Tell You Why" by The Eagles has came on FOUR TIMES today!

Now I love the song and it's one of the ones I requested, but, this is wayyyyy too excessive and I am positive listeners will not appreciate this.
I can't wrap my head around how/why this is going on.

That's all I can think of right at this moment.

Why were these removed?
I can understand removing Barry Manilow, John Denver, and Kenny Rogers, but all the ones I mentioned were perfect.


Why not put all these ones back in with what is playing now and mix it up more so no more 4 hour song rotations

The current playlist is starting to sound like WOMC without the classic rock. Sigh.

Then on Wednesday I found out that Tim Roberts is currently acting as temporary PD.

I should have known though.
The guy programming in the stale overelayed songs that have been on WOMC for years of course would be the one playing the exact same ones on the Breeze.

I hope they get an actual PD so the station can actually sound decent like it did back a month ago.
Nobody wants to hear Every Breath You Take and Caribbean Queen anymore, especially not on 2 stations now.

Hey Stopnswop, the more playlist you create the more confusing it gets for the people at The Breeze, If you stop making playlists maybe 98.7 will sound better in the music department, those people in charge of music are running around the station like chickens with their ears cut off. yeah right! talk to you later.

HI radioKev, if you read my post you will see that is just a list of songs Tim removed from their playlist.
I don't wanna hear "forget me nots" by whatever her name is. This isnt mix 92.3.
I want the real stuff back

Patrice Rushen from 1982, great tune used to play it at WLBS back in the day.

Ah, yes that's her name, thanks.

But that song doesn't really fit in with the 50 year old women audience. That song is what I call a "teen bop".

It's playing now as we speak.

Whenever I hear it I picture a bunch of teens dancing to this during an after school outing in the 80s, lol

What’s funny is my Wife was 12 when the song came out. They need to play The S.O.S. Band now that was a great group that takes me back to my WLBS 102.7 days doing midnight-6am on the weekends.

"Take your Time" by the SOS band would fit in perfect with the current sound! Agreed!


Also I just remembered the song I kept talking about being needed on The Breeze. I heard it today on the Soft Rock music choice station and remembered about posting it.
"Back For Good" by Take That, from 1995.

So the Breeze gets rid of "Kiss From A Rose" by Seal, and WNIC adds it in after not playing it for 9 years. The Breeze also got rid of Air Supply and WNIC added a song by them back in too.

The Breeze needs to wake up before WNIC changes its sound even more
Don't replace good songs with RnB filler and expect to win.
