THIS morning... just before 7, was Heatwave by Martha & the Vandellas!!
Not good, but not outrageous. With oldies stations evolving into classic hits, this is one of those songs that might not be heard anywhere without adult standards taking it.
The standards station I listened to back in '97, during their "chimpanzee period", as I call it (and yes, that does mean what you think it does) played Little Richard. Now Stardust had "Rock around the Clock" but I don't think DG does, and oldies stations have pretty much abandoned the 50s.
Regarding my local affiliate, one morning they played "Somebody to Love" by Jefferson Airplane. No way, no how, not gonna happen, wouldn't be prudent at this juncture.
