Re: song

In previous years, Billboard's Hot 100 would only include singles in commercial release. Accordingly, some songs received play but did not chart, such as....Elton John's "Pinball Wizard"...Donna Summer's "Sunset People"....Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven"....also, singles that were giveaways or h...

Re: Do people really listen to internet radio station

I just checked out bullseyeradio.com - very cool. Early 60s songs that I was NOT familiar with, including an early rendition of MEMPHIS by the Beatles from 1962...listening to this station is an 'adventure'

Re: Are OLDIES really bad (dead)?

Oldies aren't dead. but they are less interesting. I listen to them from time to time, but not that often. What I DON'T want to hear is the same limited playlist over and over.

I listen to Top 40 and Alternative music and switched to satellite radio for music 9 years ago. Why? The terrestrial radio stations in town had music directors who were either overworked or amazingly timid with regard to adding new music. In years past they would add maybe 5 new songs a week; in rec...
