Why does nobody play "Kick It Out" by Heart ?

WIDL does, about every two weeks, roughly. ;)

What I hope to be my parting shot on this topic, here's some of what we're playing this morning, 6-9 on WIDL. Like them or not (because you can't please everyone), they all used to be Active Rock.

Little Fighter - White Lion
Rumors in the Air - Night Ranger
Your Time is Gonna Come - Zep
Neighbor - Ugly Kid Joe
Pennyroyal Tea - Nirvana
Your Mam Don't Dance - Y&T
Mean Mistreater - Great White
You Take Me to the Top - Loverboy
Mama We're All Crazee Now - Slade
Sister Havana - Urge Overkill
Can I Sit Next to You - AC/DC
Ten Years Gone - Zep
Rock You Up - The Romantics
Johnny B Good - Judas Priest

You can continue to complain about what the new Wheels is or isn't doing, or you can just come to where it's already happening. :) Enjoy.
Hey man, any station playing Sister Havana can't be bad. Bummer is, 92.1 by me is that Fool FM that MW speaks SO highly of lol. Send a little more juice towards Brughton!
Wish we could push more that way. :( You can always get the stream, though.

Did you ever get your broadcast power issues ironed out? Last time I checked (probably a few weeks ago) your signal seemed perhaps marginally better than it was last year in the Tawas area bust still not as good as when you first moved to your new tower a few years back.

I've been listening to WIDL this evening and absolutely LOVE the playlist!!!

"Stop" by Jane's Addiction. Mr. Tinkertrain by Ozzy. Symphony of Destruction by Megadeth. Bound for the Floor by Local H. Also heard a deep track from Motley Crue and a pretty popular hit from Van Halen (cannot remember which song; sorry). Heard a very deep from the Black Crowes, too.

I like hearing ads for local mom & pop businesses read by LOCAL personalities. Everything sounded professionally produced and edited.

Consider me impressed. I will be listening to WIDL online much more often from this point forward. This is the type of radio I miss dearly!

WIDL plays a far better variety of "next generation" classic rock than 106.7 FAKE WHEELS.

Rip-Off Robert Ritchie ("Kid Rock" to his legions of dumb-a** groupies) wishes he could be a cowboy,but You-Know-Who beat him to it by 171/2 years!!!!!

Sorry for the delayed response. Travels.

We are still working on our power issues. The best answer I can say is the difference is the engineer then vs now, but we're moving forward.

Thanks for the props! We're always working to make things better, that's for sure. The music is a blast, I agree! We love the freedom we are being given for programming.

Once a week is even too much for that song.
My 2 least favorite Queen songs are that and Under Pressure


Music is my life.
