And Norfolk Bob is the only to have played from 5 different decades, which is true to the spirit of the concept, IMHO. Three of the classic rock stations play ONLY 70's and 80's, which probably plays to certain crowds a bit better.

I'm still trying to figure out what they're doing, though. They have put a lot of effort into sweepers that are pandering to local-ness (i.e. a millenial-sounding girl's voice saying "I like to walk my dog at Golden Gate Park and see a show at the Balboa Theater!!" and using the tagline "uniquely San Francisco"


Seriously though, it never ceases to amaze me that there are people out there who, upon hearing what 96.5 HD-2 is all about, would get super-excited about it. I'm just not sure that they'd be listening to HD-2, unless they're led there by an acquaintance that is slightly more with it. So many questions!

I like that 1992 came up twice this week for this station.

Marvelous 3 (who?)

Probably "Freak Of The Weak", a minor airplay hit. Picked up their CD awhile back for a buck. I found it ok.. not sure if it'd be in your wheelhouse.

Had several duets, plus the number one solo "I Don't Have The Heart" in 1990.

Sonic Youth's "Teenage Riot" sampled for Marc Jacobs Daisy Love Perfume.

When he was elected, I thought he was the worst. I've changed my mind.

Belinda Carlisle's "Heaven Is A Place On Earth" for Progressive

This is about 1,000 times more original than the summer set.

and we’ll show you the
best possible way to experience a Limp Bizkit song (no, really!)

BONUS. Limp Bizkit – Take a Look Around (Instrumental)

heh. If I had to pick a best Limp song, it'd be "My Way", but it's a tough call.

From the uber-LN-y (Sly) to the merely hellish (Kid Rock). The least-appealing Summer set I've ever seen.

Gotta agree on this. I suppose BOS goes to the Ataris by default, if only because it gets played less often than the original.

Wow, I take *GREAT* exception to the Tom Jones selection -- his version of "Kiss" is awesome. The rest are pretty much crappy. (Tho' Neil D's "Heartlight" is a guilty pleasure for me, and "In the Ghetto" gets a pass for being from a different time)

Agreed on Jones. I honestly think "In The Ghetto" is one of the best songs Presley ever did. "Both Sides Of The Story" may have been a bit over the top, but I enjoyed it, and I've never understood the hate for RHCP.

I will say that the Sheryl Crow and Madonna covers were absolute embarrassments.

I don't know that I've ever heard this on the radio before.
