Ugggh! As if there isn't enough crap on the radio. Perhaps if they had played decent hip hop rather than the crap they did play, they wouldn't have had to switch. Hope Parker can get picked up in the area. His knowledge of the local scence is crucial. Our radio is being invaded by tweens!

Don't we have enough top forty stations. How about going with a different format such as blues or REAL classic rock such as Ted Nugent, The Scorpions and any thing that is not the Beatles. Get KGRS's song list and NOT play what is on the list.

Do you think pants will automatically pull themselves up and hats turn out of the ignorant position now? One can only hope.

Hey Shwa, you said "...decent hip hop..."

Sorry no such thing.

I can just picture the meeting now:

"Hey, I've got a great idea ! Let's stop playing theme songs for thugs and take on KDWB instead."

Good luck with that.

Kind of ironic. Just last night I was listening to B96 when they had a commercial for the station that was an obvious jab at KDWB that went something like:

"You don't have to listen to THIS.... <insert music clip of something that sounds like Taylor Swift> to get to THIS.... <insert music clip of some hip hop>"

Well, I guess now you WILL have to listen to the Taylor Swift music if you listen to 96.3 after all!

After years of bashing KDWB, B96 has begun to play their songs.

How hillarious.

And yet I still miss Rev 105!!! As a native Detroiter - we ain't all into slip-slop. When is the last time anyone heard a Dead Kennedys tune on the radio?
