Speculation:  A combination of things.  First, 'CBS-FM has a much broadend
(sp) playlist, from Elvis to Hall & Oates.  Musically, it appears that they
allow a newer song on the air based more on it's sound than it's chart
position (although a good sounding song wouldn't make it to 'CBS-FM if it
weren't a bona fide top 40 hit at all///)  Second, 'CBS-FM has somehow
managed to assemble a staggaring array of legendary DJs from the NY area,
and primarilly from the old 77 Musicradio WABC.
