The Greatest Hits Have Returned to WCBS-FM 101.1 FM

This blog started after June 3, 2005 when the stupid executives at CBS Radio abruptly dropped the oldies format at WCBS-FM and replaced it with the automated Jack format.  I don't want to get into a discussion of that here, since it has been discussed many times before.  After 25 months the new management of CBS radio led by Dan Mason returned the format with some modifications.  New York City is ecstatic over this.  The Jack format with snarky comments was an insult to say the least.  The new version of WCBS-FM will feature "newer oldies".  Right now they are playing Fame by David Bowie which was a hit in the 1980s.  There will be very little music played from the pre-Beatles era, but you can't have everything.  I am glad that Bob Shannon is coming back, but many of the classic radio personalites have either moved on or retired.
