I'm not so sure about that, but you make a good point...WMJX has stayed on
top by evolving with their listeners' tastes...a soft AC listener 15 yr ago
would go more for Streisand, Diamond, Rogers, etc...these artists have long
since been seen as old fudds.  Magic is way too wimpy for me, but obviously
they have kept in touch with their listeners.
