I wouldn't go so far as to say that, but they definitely have become more
current-intensive.  They sound pretty mainstream to me (definitely compared
to WKSS, which I would call more rhythmic)...maybe the rhythmic stuff is
more noticeable because they never played any of it before.  What a
difference a new PD makes!

My one complaint of 80s formats is that (from sample hours I've seen
posted..never actually heard one) they seem to lean Alternative.  Granted,
that genre was hip and new then, but there was so much other good music
around--especially '82-'86.  I hope this format doesn't become as narrow as
the unlamented 70s format did.
