That's NOT a real Oldie......
For many people the term "Oldies" refers to only one era of music (usually their era.)
But what IS an oldie? You've probably heard the debate ever since Oldies 103 signed on in Boston! ;-)
For some it's the Ronette's for some the Beatles, For some The Shirelle's, for some it's Boogie Oogie Oogie.
This was an interesting article in the Chicago tribune, and while from an out of town source, it has many great quotes from some great radio programmers about the constantly changing world of "Oldies" radio.
What's an oldie anymore, anyway? Elvis … The Supremes … The Cars?
Some relative newbies are passing for oldies on the radio, and it's making the genre tricky to define as older hits fade away
WODS prefers not to be called Oldies any more. They added the 80s to the 60s and 70s--and tonight during Back to the 80s Friday Night they actually played the Ramones I Wanna Be Sedated!Post a Comment
