I haven't listened to AM/FM radio regularly for so long (until recently with WCKG's WBMX.com music on the weekend, but I listen to that online). I mainly listen to online radio stations, as well as soundcloud & mixcloud. However, I still keep taps on what is happening in the state of Chicago radio. |
IMO, when most people think of classic rock, they tend to think of the rock songs the 1960s, 1970s, & 1980s (AC/DC, ZZ Top, Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbeth, Ted Nugent, Kiss, Van Halen, etc). I do like the idea of a 1990s/2000s classic rock format (the stuff that was big on Rock 103.5/Blaze and later 94.7 the Zone during its active rock period), but is there a large enough audience to maintain long-term success? Would the station also include the classic alternative cuts that were big on Q101?
What is the Loop's percentage of rock anyway? How much 60s/70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s, 2010s & today's rock hits? Last I checked they were mostly 60s/70s/80s rock with some recent rock thrown in. I don't see the Loop changing anytime soon.
