Thread: 70's-style AM radio - anywhere locally?

  1. #11
    Why AM? I doubt anyone would listen. Music sounds terrible.
    In my vehicles, for music I usually have it set to 92.7 FM. I prefer to hear 60s & 70s songs, I'm not a fan of current pop. And to me 94.5 plays the same 80s & 90s stuff over & over...with too many commercials.
    I wish 92.7 would play a little more variety. But to give them credit, every once in a while they toss in a few that aren't over-played, which is nice. I know quite a few old farts like myself (over 45) that listen to 92.7. It's too bad their signal isn't stronger.
    Think about it, most people under 30 don't listen to terrestrial radio for music these days.

    Why not create stations aimed at the over 40 listeners?

    You think that KOOL and KSLX aren't aimed at people over 40? They are, which is why they are centered in the 80s.

    If you're 45, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bon Jovi, and Guns & Roses are bands you listened to in high school and college.

    Now, if you're asking why they don't create stations aimed at people over 60, the answer is there's more money to be made targeting people over 40 than over 60.

    I guess I prefer hearing older stuff...and a variety. I listened to all that (GNR, Bon Jovi, etc.) growing up & to tune into a station that plays the same 50 songs over & over, doesn't do it for me. I know plenty of other folks in their 40s & 50s that feel the same way. BTW: I heard Steve Goddard on 92.7 today...NICE!

Maybe that "Brown Eyed Girl" song, too. Like what 94.5 used to be in the 80's -- I wish they could have just kept their now-old songs in rotation.
    Not on AM, but 103.1 KCDX.
