  • i like that new station that replaced cbs 101 oldies
    it plays anything that was top 40 over the 70s 80s 90s 00's (this decade have a name yet?)
    rock, pop, 'new wave', you name it
    no repeats
    lots of songs thay haven't been played on radio in years and years and years
    like right now, living in america, a sone that's ok to hear once every 20 years, is playing

    i'm at my cubicle desk, earphones firmly implanted, and in need of aural distraction, feeling like a desk rider, and in need of getting this off my chest
    (ps, i'm not pimping for ratings)
    anyone else liking this new radio offering?

  • see how long it lasts. the ratings are LESS than when it was the oldies... A format switch can't be far away... again

    I personally think it's horrible. Absolutely no cohesion or flow. Plays all the songs I avoided listening to by tuning to the alternative stations in the first place.

  • I love Oldies.  but whats up with all the NYC stations, they have better stations in small towns. all the NY stations seem to be fighting for the ultimate ratings & they use all music formats. I was listening to some station in the car the other day & I heard Velvet revolver, then Jethro tull, then the Jackson 5, the Gwen Stafani. I switched it to another station searching for another rock one & thought I found something when I hit one that was playing some Edger Winter & then it went to Gunes & Roses & then went right to cheesey hip Hop song. I was like WTF? cant a brother get a good rock station up here?

  • I absolutely LOVE Jack 101.1!
    I have to admit, I sometimes miss the oldies, but only the J to the A to the C to the K can get my butt moving on that damn tredmill at 5:30 in the mornin'

    I believe that station was created just for me.  Glad to hear there are other out there.

    NO! NO! NO! NO!

    Unacceptable.

    Why did nobody consult me on this?

    Somewhere, there's a kid out there (like me at age 17) who has decided that everything on the radio sux. He knows that it is simply business and has been since the days of Journey & Styx took the throne from the likes of Grand Funk and The Nuge.

    Then, on a recon mission to previously unexplored reaches of the dial, he or she will tune in to hear the dulcet intro to Herman's Hermits "Missus Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter," or the mind altering psych of  The Zombies "Time of the Season" the get up and go of "Get Off My Cloud" by the Rolling Stones or the sheer kick assedness of The Hollies "Carrie Anne."  Maybe, he will be inspired by the wealth of Stax and Atlantic Records-era soul music by the likes of Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett or Dyke & The Blazers playing "Do the funky broadway?"

    Or, maybe it will be Sunday night and time for the Doo Wop Shop.

    Damn I miss the Doo Wop Shop.

  • One more thing.
    I hate that song Believe by Cher, and if you like that song then I probably hate you too.
