Music tweak at The Bounce

Post by MWmetalhead » Fri Nov 13, 2020 6:40 am

In response to sagging ratings, the new PD has added noticeably more crossover rhythm hits from the early and mid 90s. I like the change.

So, less classic hip hop?

Heard M.C. Hammer this morning, as an example.

Music log:
https://1051thebounce.com/stream/wmgcfm/

Bell Biv Devoe, Tag Team, and Onyx are some of the artists receiving airplay today.

It is by no means a massive change, but maybe 10% to 15% of the slots on the playlists are now devoted to songs or artists from the 1990 to 1995 timeframe the station previously played very little.

I am also noticing less pure hip-hop and more party favorite-type songs in general.

They played Ed Sheeran last night. Had me thinking I landed on 93.9 for a second...how does he fit into this format??

Besides that, this is probably the best the Bounce has sounded in a while.

That's definitely a big difference from 2 years ago. They were mainly playing Aaliyah, DMX, Eminem, and Jay Z.

Maybe they're going to fully switch to a Rhythmic AC or something.
Ed Sheeran is the furthest from hip hop

Vanilla Ice - played at 7:04p last night. :)

That is an astute observation, stopnswop. You might be right! They are also playing quite a bit of Justin Timberlake all of a sudden (BARF). About one cut every two to three hours. That is a change I do not particularly like.

The playlist is beginning to look somewhat similar to Star 94 in Atlanta.

The new PD's experience is largely in various forms of Urban radio, but he also had a tour of duty at CHR stalwart KDWB in Minneapolis.

Let's see if the station begins phasing out the term "hip hop" from its branding.

So maybe slightly similar to the old 106.7 the Beat?

Personally, if they tweak it to be a cross between that and their current format, I might listen more...

It’s been almost 10 years and I still miss the Beat...damn.

Trust me when I say this. The new PD is not coming into Detroit making format tweaks or anything else on his own. There are a lot of “opinions” floating around The Bounce. The days of PD’s actually making calls on his/her own are history, especially in the majors. Although the qualifications for the gig may read like a novel, your main experience is that of a babysitter.

I looked through their playlist this morning and I don't see really any big indication of a tweak. All the songs played fit the definition of throwback hip hop / R&B, except for a couple Justin Timberlake songs and Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke.
Are you saying they didn't play late 80s / early 90s tracks before?

Correct; such material previously was only heard on rare occasion.
