Classic Rock songs that should be played, but aren't

This is a good place to drop general and weird news, entertainment, and general show prep material that might be interesting to air talent or producers. Hot dog threads ALWAYS welcome.

Classic Rock songs that should be played, but aren't

Post by Greg Goodfellow » Thu Sep 26, 2019 10:38 pm

WRSG is beginning the transition to 80s/90s/2000s from 4 p.m. until midnight, which should take full effect in December 26th, 2019. However, (and Scott Reppart can help mightily here, along with most of you) we would like to play classic rock deep cuts that will pass lyrics muster. Government Mule and Poison come to mind, with the obvious ones from artists known for some monster hits that come close to being overplayed, but are still popular, especially among my teen students. Please start giving me your choices, then the best sites to download.

Also, we'd like to run BLUES overnights, but this is taking a long time to implement. If anyone knows a music library service that provides this music, please let me know that as well. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!
