Strange, I was listening to Oldies 103.3 today (while driving to the
grocery store)
and while listening to "Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get" by The Dramatics,
the same
thought struck me -  I never hear black music on WROR (used to on
nights with JJ, though.)

Also, Oldies 103.3 has galloped boldly into the 70's.  I heard "Jackie
Blue " by the
Ozark Mountain Daredevils for the second time in 48 hours.  If I'm not
the Dramatics song (see above) would have only appeared on the Thursday
countdown until now.

Mike Finnegan almost gave away a secret when he tried to ad-lib about
the new
12-in-a-row thing.  It sounded like he almost started to say "we've
always played
12 in a row, but now we're hyping it", but caught himself and tried talk
his way out
of it.
