No, what you'll have is a station playing 80 percent of your playlist with fewer commercials and less talk on FM that will cannibalize your 18-49 females. I believe Bill Drake would have seen that and chosen another path.
    When WNAC became WRKO in spring 1967, WRKO-FM was doing an automated Top 40 format (featuring the voice of "Arko, the shy but friendly robot" and the week's No. 1 and No. 2 hits alternating at the tops of every hour). What I'm fuzzy on these many years later -- mainly because I was only 12 when all this happened -- is when the automation stopped on FM and the "chicken rock" took over, and when the call was changed to WROR. I know WROR eventually shifted to oldies, but that wasn't until the '70s, right? So was WROR cannibalizing WRKO almost from the outset, during the Drake years?

    CTListener: No, for the same reason KHJ-FM wasn't. FM listening hadn't hit those levels yet. But when they came out of oldies and back to contemporary music, there was a sizeable and growing FM audience. And that's when you had cannabalization.

    Hey its Rick Dees everyone! Loved your Liz Fulton parody on Wally George's Hot Seat, bit you on the hiney for a reported Multi Million dollar settlement. Those that haven't seen it forward to 7:45 on this broadcast:
