They can claim a trademark all they want, but I seriously doubt they
could make it stick.  Unlike, for example, "Kiss", which is a name,
"classic hits" is (arguably) merely a description, and mere
descriptions are not subject to trademark protection.  (IANAL but I do
try to keep up with Intellectual Property law.)
