    No, this format does not rotate 1500-2000 songs. My wife complains she hears Hall and Oates too much. I am in a position to know as a regular (but not hours at a time) listener.

    Still, these stations are not getting the kind of ratings that KRTH and WCBS are getting, and there's a reason for that.

Don't need a geek format, just a station that knows what they're doing.....and doing it right. This station is along those lines, I believe. Hippie is another. They're out there, waiting to be discovered.
    This station is on a nationally distributed syndicated format... what we used to call a "satellite" format. It has a playlist comparable to that of larger market classic hits stations, meaning a core of around 800 songs and some cycled songs that come in and out.

    You can't build a library of 1,500 songs because, from the era they played, there are not that many songs that are still hits.

    "Hide Away" is by Daya.
    "Hideaway" is by Kiesza. (Big difference; one is American, the other Canadian.)
