I wouldn't go so far as to call WPTR "real oldies".  Granted they do play 
some 50s/early 60s rock & roll, but more often than not they'll cold segue 
Chuck Berry or Little Richard into some soggy Patti Page ballad.  Not my 
idea of "real oldies".  Maybe they'll be a little more focused when they 
move it to FM and make it sound like something other than an afterthought.
