    A DFW radio station (I listen to a bunch :) ) went online recently --
    KEOM 88.5 . Their format is 70's top 40 . Normally, they don't play
    wall-to-wall Christmas tunes. Honest! Every once in a while, some
    tasty MoTown sneaks in :D.


    Can't forget "Power to the People" :rolleyes: (KNON). They have an
    excellent Blues show 6-8pm (CT) / M-F - http://knon.org/.
    There's also Metal, Jazz, Reggae, and...Polka! :p
  2. 70s top 40, eh? That's right up my aging alley. :D
    I'll check it out later. Later NotD.

    Gotta laugh. I'm REALLY getting old, when someone considers 70s music as music for "old farts." My "oldies, but goodies" would have to be mid-fifties music! I was already in my thirties in the 70s.

    By the way, is there a music station that plays music from the 1940s?

  5. 70's top 40? That would suck, but I bet its a hell of a lot better then todays top 40.

    Sorry Ms. B. :( Just goin' for a catchy thread title.
    Tee-heee :D Good question!...



    Ooooo...Dallas' own Classical WRR is a featured station at
    Yahoo/Broadcast.com :) ..."Fill your ears with classical music,
    and wash away your surroundings. Ravel, Strauss, Vivaldi, Mozart,
    Bach, Puccini. Since 1948 WRR has been the source for classical music."

    ...wash away my surroundings eh? Sure could use that at work :p.

  7. Nice ND just upset the everyone. ;)

    I am 35 and when I go to Tower Records I feel old, love asking for B.T.O and being told look in oldies.

    I do not know what will happen when I go to grab an Iron Maiden disk and have to look in Oldies.

    I might not be able to handle it.
  8. At age 42, the 70's music is what I grew up with in my teen years, when I was influenced by bands of that era. Michael Shenker and Ronnie Montrose were my guitar heros back then (I was still primarily a guitar player back then).

    Most people my age still prefer to listen to music from that era, or have gone to easy listening. I used to be in bands back then that covered Doobie Brothers tunes when they were current tunes. Now, if you cover one of their songs, your in a oldies band. Ouch! that smarts

    I'm not a normal 42 year old. I love a good Godsmack, or Rob Zombie, or Disturbed. I like new music, and I think there are a lot of good bands coming out now. I like Hip Hop, and don't know anybody that is my age that likes it.

    Listening to Boston, or Kansas, give me the heebie jeebies (sp). I guess I didn't have many good teen year experiences (that I can remember), that those bands remind me of. There are exceptions though.

    I do my best :D

    Hell. Five years older than you here. But I'm an emotional dufus.
    Go figure.

    So. Does listenin' to classical make me a "long hair" ? Nahhh. That'd
    be my shoulder-length (graying) brown hair. (not a mullet d*mmit! :p )
    That's why God (or was it Al Gore?) created the internet.
    That way, I don't have to go to the mall Hastings or Camelot
    and see some 16 year old..."person" belly-up to the checkout,
    plunk down a stack of eMpTy-Vee recommened CD's, and pay
    for it all with their very own Bank of Las Colinas gold card (aww).
  10. I'm 54, and Kansas and Boston etc never did it for me either. Some of todays bands are great, Live is one I like. The 70's were'nt too memorable for me, apart from the likes of Parliament, Tower of Power, Return to Forever etc.
  11. My 59-year-old father hasn't listened to any rock music after the White Album. He's said something to the effect of "it's been done."

    For the past 30 years, he's listened to nothing but conservatory music. His big thing lately has been Brahms, but he's also been digging Dvorak and Mahler. He wouldn't listen to Bartok when my brother and I were little, because he didn't want it "to screw up our senses of harmony."

    Little did he know, of course, that his older son would be into Can and Zappa, while his younger son (me) would like King Crimson and Thelonious Monk :eek:
