WJOI was pretty much the last one in Detroit. They originally played muzak-does anyone even perform that anymore? Hell, can you even buy or download old muzak anywhere?
Eventually, they switched to a more vocal-intensive format. I had a tape somewhere of a WJOI music bloc, containing Paul Davis' "Cool Night", Stephen Bishops "On And On", "Mr Bojangles" and a Kenny Rogers song ("She Believes In Me"? Maybe "Lady").
When did they drop the muzak for pop?
My mom loved WLTI (93.1) and was upset when dance pop replaced it. WLTI was basically vocal pop, like WJOI ended up chasing after
