You hit the nail on the head Jeff.  Greg Bone's QRC & OCN are very busy
telling us that they play the best music on Cape Cod or some such promo
drivel.  He's told me that OCN is now in my demographic and they are now
playing what I like (since Dick Golden and the older format were dumped).
What the stations are playing mostly is stuff that I didn't like the first
time around.  Am I supposed to like it now????
