Cars 108 seems to be airing a Townsquare corporate playlist now. I'm noticing the same songs played in the same order as WFMK. It also seems to be a touch softer than what both stations were airing before. WFMK actually played a song by Gloria Estefan last night, an artist who likely hasn't been on their playlist (outside of Christmas music) in years. I wouldn't be surprised if Banana 101 and WGRD are airing the same music logs as well.MWmetalhead wrote: ↑Sun Jan 03, 2021 8:36 amSome of you are going to hate me for saying this - but as far as Adult Contemporary stations go, I think 96.1 actually has a very well structured playlist. I prefer it to 107.9 and many other stations.
I've always liked the on-air jocks I've heard on the station, too, within the past few years.
The jingle package is the only thing I'm not fond of; a little too flimsy sounding for my liking. (I'm assuming the station still uses the same package it used a year ago.)
Cars 108's playlist suffers from inadequate variety, the voiceovers are boring, and the processing is too soft. I think 96.1 is a better programmed station overall.
The only thing I listen to Cars for anymore is the '80s request lunch (assuming that still exists) and '80s AT40 on Saturday nights. Then again, their signal is very hit or miss here these days thanks to the Spring Arbor translator in Dexter.
I agree, My 96.1 is better music-wise. It's got a decent variety of familiar songs with enough "oh wow" to be a little more interesting than your typical mainstream AC.
