Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

A thought did occur to me about this today. When WAS the last time a new Active/Contemporary rock station started up here? I don't mean shit like Alt 106.7, either. Something akin to WRIF. Was it K-Rock, over 20 years ago? I guess it amazes me that "Detroit Rock City" and WRIF's respectable ratings ...

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

God, I am sick and tired of hearing about stale music. The average radio listener wants to hear songs that they recognize. Back in the heyday of Top 40, some songs were on a 1 1/2 to 2 hour rotation. You folks would be sticking an ice pick in your ear. No programmer worth a damn would program a bun...

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

The irony is, WRIF seems to have really stepped up their 90s and beyond rock titles. Sure, you'll still hear (Roth era) VH, Crue, Def Leppard, but the 90s gold selections have really increased and as far as I can tell, they are even more active then before. There is a giant gap LLZ could be filling ...

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

I heard Heartbreaker by Pat Benatar today. Not a bad song, but not right for the format. Leave that to CSX. Replace that with Stinkfist by Tool. If WLLZ's target was WRIF, that strategy would make sense, but the target is WCSX. When the original WLLZ appeared on scene, 1980-81, they had H*** female...

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

Bryce, I have to admit that I'm shocked. I didn't realize you liked ANYTHING progressive ;) Hey every so often I get tired of Bing Crosby and Eddie Albert and take a walk on the wild side. Ooops, hope I don't get sued by Lou Reed's estate. Speaking of Lou Reed, believe it or not, I really like the ...

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

Side note: This isn't a bitch at WLLZ, maybe more for WCSX (or the format in general), but after going through my albums tonight, it seemed to me that I haven't heard much in the way of progressive rock around much the last few years. Emerson, Lake and Palmer used to be a mainstay on CSX, stuff lik...

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

I dont really listen too much anymore. Are they still trying to say that theyre "The new generation of classic rock!" and then play "Bohemian Rhapsody? Yep. Green Day to Journey segues. Bad Company to Beastie Boys segues. Setting your watch to Bohemian Rhapsody. Oh well. Should have known better. A...

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

I try not to go TOO deep; I get that it's a familiarity game. So I'm not trying to pull random album tracks out of my ass, you know? I'm trying to stick to tunes most people would know and remember. It just bugs me because I'm so happy to have WLLZ back, but it could be so much more. Yes, that is i...

I think I picked up that station passing through Linden once.
Nope. I definitely picked it up while on 96 just west of Milford the other day. Didn't realize it had that much range!

Do you really want two geriatrics on the morning show
Welcome to Detroit radio! There can't possibly be a younger voice with talent out there. I mean, people are still wanting 70+ year old Arthur P. to come out of retirement and back on the air.
