I really, highly doubt that they'll do anything live at night. 93.7 and 98.1 are the only live stations at night. 93.3 used to be.
As for 102.5, it sounds like they are not playing any pre-90s music now, at least at night. It seems like they are playing more fresh/new/current music too. January has definitely been their best month so far for adding new music.
Yep! Was listening tonight on the way back from Myrtle Beach and was pleasantly surprised. They did a pretty good job of making Aaron Rogers sounding local. I actually thought it was someone local until I saw this thread. But yes, not a single 70s or 80s song that I heard on the way home (not that I mind some 80s in there).
On an offtopic note, the trip reinforced my feelings that The Planet is the worst rock station in the state. Rock 94.5 in Columbia was sounding pretty good and everything else I heard even in Florence and Myrtle Beach was at least "ok" and definately better than WTPT.
Yes, he does sound very good and local. More so than Dave Kent (who is at WKSL/Raleigh), but he is not bad.
They sound the best tonight, IMO, that they have since they started - I wonder if they'll keep this sound all day, or just at night (some stations go more modern/aggressive at night). This was what they sounded like for around 90 mins tonight:
Colbie Caillat- Brighter Than The Sun
Howie Day - Collide
Miley Cyrus - The Climb
Fray- Over My Head/Cable Car
Train - Meet Virginia
Adele - Set Fire To The Rain
U2 - Beautiful Day
Usher/Willi.I.Am - OMG
Maroon 5 - Moves Like Jagger
Coldplay - Violet Hill
P!nk - Raise Your Glass
Taylor Swift - Love Story
Lady Gaga - You & I
Killers - Mr. Brightside
Black Eyed Peas - I Gotta Feeling
Kid Rock - All Summer Long
Goo Goo Dolls - Slide
Gavin DeGraw - Not Over You
Kelly Clarkson - Because Of You
Daughtry - No Surprise
Adele - Someone Like You
In addition to the new Gavin DeGraw and Adele songs I've never heard them play locally, they played Usher/David Guetta's "Without You" and Katy Perry's "The One That Got Away", which are climbing up the AC/Hot AC charts.
I think WARQ in Columbia and WKZQ in MYB are great rock stations, much better and more 'polished' than The Planet. WTPT is just terrible.
