CLEAR CHANNEL Classic Rock WFXF (95.1 THE FOX)/ROCHESTER, NY waves goodbye to THE FOX, and tips a hearty glass of hello to THE BREW -- described by CLEAR CHANNEL SVPP JON ZELLNER as "the next generation of classic rock."
The station kicked off it's new sound with AC/DC's "Shook Me All Night Long" at noon, and will feature a playlist of classic artists from the '80s -- as well as the late '70s and early '90s -- THE BREW will feature acts such as BON JOVI, VAN HALEN, DEF LEPPARD, FOREIGNER, AC/DC, TOM PETTY, JOURNEY, MOTLEY CRUE, AEROSMITH and GUNS 'N ROSES.
Mornings will continue to feature THE WEASE SHOW -- hosted by ROCHESTER radio legend BROTHER WEASE -- and will air weekdays from 5-10:30a. Other hosts will be added to lineup in the coming weeks.
"THE BREW will serve a lot of people in ROCHESTER who have expressed dissatisfaction with local rock radio in recent years," said OM DAVE LEFROIS. "It's fine for your Dad to listen to his idea of classic rock while sipping on prune juice -- as long as we can crack a brew and listen to ours. 951 THE BREW is the next generation of classic rock."
