.... I do not care if Janie's got a gun. Nor do I care where the police found her, or how hot Leslie Ann Warren looked in the video. When you play the exact same out-of-date Aerosmith song (a redundant statement, I know) time and time again, listeners like myself tend to change the channel. I realize the song came out in the early 1990's and your DJ's may be trying to re-capture their youth, but please understand something: There are other Aerosmith songs available, and no, Cryin' doesn't count.

I also do not consider "Love In An Elevator" as "classic rock" as I was listening to the radio the day it debuted, and I'm south of 30. Hendrix, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Led Zepplin, and to a lesser extent Blue Oyster Cult, help comprise true "classic" rock. Now, were you to include the early '70's version of "Dream On" that routinely plays on FM radio (and is so old it doesn't even sound like Aerosmith) then I would agree. But "Livin' On The Edge"? Hardly.

Thank you for your attention to this matter. smile

I remember the first time I heard Motley Crue or Poison (I don't remember which) on the local "Classic Rock" station for the first time.

I wept bitterly.

I have a hard time of thinking of the songs of the 80s (and to a lesser degree the 70s) as "oldies". :shock:

You know, I've heard quite a bit about that station since I'm an avid 1310 The Ticket listener but I've never tried it out. I'm guessing it's not that good?

Ugh, The Bone.  

We're playing some Bonetracks from the Boneyard while all the Boneheads get their Bonegroove on while drinking some Bonebrew at our Bonehour and trying to snag some Bonegear.  

Shut the f*ck up!!  It's the kind of station that they put on in a gym where only dudes go.  I admit I flip through it sometimes, but it's just another example of bad radio.

Thank goodness for satellite radio!  XM rox my Boneneeds.

*shrug*  I like it, but they play enough of the 80's and 90's metal to make me happy.  I switch between the bone, and 102.1 the edge for my rock fix, and then usually pop in a CD for some high energy techno (since 106.7 has gone all hip-hop and forgotten about the other end of the party spectrum).

The unthinkable has happened.  There's a good new radio station in the twin cities.  Minnesota Public Radio launched its third format (after classical and news).  Think college radio run by professionals.  It kicks ass.  You can see a dynamic playlist at http://minnesota.publicradio.org/radio/services/thecurrent/playlist.php

I used to listen to it occasionally for a my high-school flashback fix, but it's really the presentation that kills it for me.  It's too Xtreme for me I guess.  I didn't mean to be rude about it but rereading my post I probably came off that way.

...I just got a new car with a 6 disk in dash CD changer and 6 speakers. I no longer have a need to listen to your crap and commericals. Although, I would not mind having sat. radio. But FM, you can suck my balls.

I've got a rock radio station in Chicago that I just love to death. They play plenty of Talking Heads and Clash, along with obscure people like Andrew Bird, Bobby Bare Jr., Low Millions, Secret Machines, etc. The one problem is that they seem single-handedly determined to keep Eagle Eye Cherry and his horrible "Save Tonight" song in the public consciousness. Let the one-hit wonder die already!
