Post by MWmetalhead » Fri May 03, 2019 11:00 pm

...I've heard not one, but two (!!!) songs from the 90's.

I listened for 10 minutes around 3:30p this afternoon and heard Lenny Kravitz's version of American Woman.

I just flipped on the station 5 minutes ago, and now I'm hearing "Hey Jealousy" by Gin Blossoms (which was abruptly cut short by a station ID sweeper).

I wonder how many 90's tracks WOMC plays an hour these days? I don't listen to the station nearly enough to be able to answer that question, and because Entercom's IT people are incompetent, I have no ability to view a music log on WOMC's web site (the playlist page is blank).

I like the inclusion of 90's tracks, personally.

I like it to, They need to play more 90’s and shake off this 80’s redundant crap, They can do 70’s - 90’s and still maintain good numbers even throw in a few late 60’s tunes as well.

Rock stations say Kravitz' music sounds too much like R&B ,whose stations claim Kravitz is too much of a rocker dude for their airwaves. Another reason radio blows,as artificial racial boundaries deny an uber-talented musician an audience .

It’s the evolving of the format. Even CKWW is sprinkling in a few 80s tunes.

So how many 90s song over, say, a four hour period would you say 104.3 plays?

I actually heard Mary J. Blige's "Family Affair" on WOMC a few days ago. So it's official... WOMC and 105.1 The Bounce have at least one song in common.

Are you serious??

I LOVE that song.
However.. I don't expect WOMC's target audience to love it.
I'm excited to see how much lower they can make their ratings go.

Also, the song came out in 2001...

Brings back memories for me.
Being on the bus in 5th grade and hearing it on Q955 every morning.
The song was still playing on there well into 2002.

That was also probably the last year you could hear a hip hop or rap song followed by Nickelback or Linkin Park. Lol.

Just heard Picture- Kid Rock/Sheryl Crow 2007.
Couldn't change the station fast enough.

That's from 2002.
It's a great song though... but not for WOMC imo.
Is Tim Roberts trying to get low ratings or just lost his mind?

The song is perfect on The Breeze though.

I'm pretty sure WCSX is winning.. not because of the format.. but because they are playing large amounts of 60s and 70s music.

WOMC’s ratings will tank and when they do they need to just to drop this Classic Hits format and try something entirely different, Look at WJMK 104.3 in Chicago Now they are R&B WBMX, Why would Entercom create The Breeze 98.7 and have the playlist sound so close to WOMC, Why are the two Stations competing against each other when they’re owned by Entercom, What’s Up with that anyway.

Perhaps WOMC going newer, and WDZH staying slower and older will provide more differentiation. I wish both would expand their song lists a bit, though.

All the Hits all the Time “The Giant 104.3” We’re going to kick Channel 95.5’s ass. Just a thought.
