50s and 60s music is already well established in the format of Adult 
Standards stations like WXKS(AM) and WJIB.   It's not going to work with 
live DJs taking requests, at least not at first.  Someone has to 
demonstrate the value of that audience before the advertising dollars are 
going to roll in.  Or else it's going to have to turn up on a station 
like WJIB where an individual owner decides to program what he wants, 
regardless of advertising trends.  If I hear my favorite music, I don't 
particularly care if it's bird-fed.  I suspect that niches like that may 
be found on Internet and satellite radio and may even be the reason some 
people buy the service.
