Is this why WGRD's playlist sucked total ass today & yesterday?

I had to drive to GR for a funeral & visitation and was stunned by the complete absence of any music from the last 15 years on WGRD's playlist and the overabundance of classic rock from the 70's & 80's.

Aerosmith, tons of Zeppelin, Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Rush, Judas Priest, Van Halen, etc.

I heard a few Metallica songs, a few Bush songs and one Chevelle song. EVERYTHING ELSE was classic rock.

I feared WGRD perhaps made a terrible programming decision, but now I'm thinking a ransomware attack may be the culprit for the playlist oddities I'm hearing on GRD?

On a semi-related note, I also heard more 90's music than usual on WFGR today. That station - emergency playlist mode or not - actually sounded pretty good today!
