89X is irrelevant in this race, as they no longer focus on Detroit. WRIF should be mostly current rock, WCSX classic rock, and WLLZ classic rock but more 90s focused. Sometimes I can’t tell which one I am listening too based solely on the playlist.
EXACTLY! It seems like they are all merging together.
Just heard "Dream On" on 106.7 Nothing screams "The new generation of classic rock" like that one!

Neat list of most played songs in history if youre interested:

Just heard "The Rockets" on their Deep Cut of the day. "Turn up the Radio" is exactly the type of stuff they should be playing more of. Its a shame that a great song like that has to be a Deep Cut. It seems like they might be trying to mix it up a bit overall so I have to give them a bit of credit. If I'm gonna bitch when theyre shitty I gotta give credit when its due. In general theres still too many safe overplayed songs but it seems to be less than before.

senpaisai, Ditch Queen and Kansas, and you got something. A lot of good choices
I'll give you Queen because even I'm burnt out on them, but that Kansas track is from their 1995 album "Freaks Of Nature" that never got airplay but live crowds loved it, and Steve Walsh's voice was still decent enough. And when it comes to Kansas, I would only choose songs from 1986 onward which focuses on the severely underrated era where Steve Morse replaced Kerry Livgren - long before he replaced Ritchie Blackmore in Deep Purple. There's some killer stuff in that era such as "One Big Sky", "Power", "Musicatto", and "T.O. Witcher" ...

So swap the Queen for .... anything by Krokus between 1980 and 1986! :D

Iheart makes me laugh with their consultants and test audience playlists, they couldn't do jack for the Drive, the D and now Wheelz is slipping.

Anyone with half a brain would tell them something, your suits don't know shit.Just rock the F" ing thing. :barf

btw a Rockets deep cut Casey would be Lucille or Born in Detroit not Turn up the Radio which should be in regular rotation on Wheelz since its from the era of your listeners and they are a homegrown act.

WTF


Detroit has Real Rock at last....no more Bryan Adams you get the goods without an excess in baggage Z Rock 102.7....

I figured once the ratings went down they would double down on a smaller playlist of only songs that people will recognize in three notes or less.
