K.M. RICHARDS PROGRAMMING SERVICES is offering a more rock-oriented version of its THE EIGHTIES CHANNEL format as an additional option. Rock songs can be used as a category within the Classic Hits format for stations wishing a harder edge to the music rotation.
“As we developed the Classic Hits version of the format at KRKE/ALBUQUERQUE over a 16- month period, we realized that a significant percentage of songs in our ‘mainstream’ category were from artists such as AEROSMITH, BON JOVI, and DEF LEPPARD,” said RICHARDS. “With that in mind, we reviewed songs from the 1980s that are getting airplay on Classic Rock stations and created a list of those which enjoyed heavy radio play and MTV exposure as currents.”
RICHARDS added that “the vast majority of stations will want the basic version of the format,” and can also use an Early Alternative version adding more Alternative cuts from the 80s.
