And The Winner Is...Shout!
Thanks to the many of you who entered the Guess the Last Oldie contest.
Unfortunately, though your guesses were considerably more creative than anything the folks at Clear Channel were able to come up with, nobody picked the final song, or even any of the songs played in the last half hour. I'll use the judge's prerogative and award the prize to the entry that came closest in spirit, which was Marci W's "Louie, Louie," which is pretty near to "Shout!" in era and type of song. Marci, please email me at email@example.com with your postal address and I'll get the prize out to you.
Here's the station's last half hour of songs in the old format:
Shout! Isley Brothers 4:56pm
Danny's Song Loggins & Messina 4:52pm
Make Me Smile Chicago 4:49pm
Time of the Season Zombies 4:45pm
Sweet Mary Wadsworth Mansion 4:42pm
I Heard It Through the Grapevine Gladys Knight & The Pips 4:39pm
All Right Now Free 4:35pm
The new station opened, predictably enough, with Bachman-Turner Overdrive's "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet," followed by Elton John's "Bennie and the Jets" and the Eagles' "Hotel California." So you can see where they're going--a more pop version of the classic rock menu now heard on 94.7 The Arrow.
More in the morning from The Post's Paul Farhi, and I'll explore the switch in my next Listener column on April 16. Thanks for playing. Any initial reactions to the new station?
