They continue to expand their playlist, but so many of the songs sound so strange. Are they classics that you would find hanging on a shelf? I seem to think not. The hits they are trying to play should be trashed. I think they should mimic KRTH while still differentiating themselves. KRTH does an acceptable mix of the 60s (Beach Boys, Supremes, Temptations, Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons, and more. KOLA should follow that, but could throw in an occasional Bangles, Abba, Juice Newton, Blondie, or some other artist.
Loved the 80s weekend for the 4th of July. I heard Rick Springfield, Juice Newton, The Eurythmics, Tracy Chapman, and BonJovi in a row.I like the theme weekend and don't recall KOST doing one recently.
100.3 THE SOUND
I like the sound of Southern California- it is mostly classic hits with a few surprises mixed in. They need to continue to do the surprises. I do like the special features like album sides Thursday and Your Turn on Sunday nights where they allow a listener to be a guest DJ and play what they want.
In the car with my mom the other day she said this was probably the best station as of recently on her radio dial because KOLA has gotten so bad. She even knew who Fergie and Train were and asked if I liked them when I was in the process of turning them. That blew me away...
