Without a doubt. Also keep in mind that prior to the past 10-12 years or
so, stations were far less recurrent-heavy than they are today. Back then,
when a song dropped off the chart, there was a pretty good chance that it
would just go away, as opposed to hanging in forever in recurrent rotation.
It increases the "ow wow" factor of a lot of these songs, but time will
tell how well they wear after 6 months or so.
