I was looking over the playlist today, Sunday, for KFMB-FM (or as the website calls the station KFM-BFM). I was surprised how it leans to Classic Rock. Some titles include...
Pete Townsend--Let My Love Open The Door
Bon Jovi--Wanted Dead or Alive
Free--All Right Now
Corey Hart--Sunglasses at Night
Midnight Oil--Beds Are Burning
AC/DC--Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
Stray Cats--Rock This Town
The Fixx--One Thing Leads to Another
David Bowie--Young Americans
Prince--Let's Go Crazy
Van Halen--Hot for Teacher
I omitted some more recent titles, but not too many. These Classic Rock songs were clearly the largest part of the playlist. I was surprised that some of these songs are 30 years old or more. OK, no Beatles and not much mid-tempo rock, such as Fleetwood Mac or The Eagles. (I was also surprised to see Prince on the playlist. I wonder if that was true before his death as well as now?)
I know that even Rock stations classified as Active Rock have, in the last year or so, gone back to mostly older titles. But I didn't think that was true to this extent. Has KFMB-FM modified its original mainstream rock format? Is this what it sounded like when it first switched from Hot AC to Rock? Or has it decided to be a slightly more recent version of KGB-FM?
