Why is WCBS-FM Having a Contest Giving Away Tickets to the Forthcoming Bob Dylan Concerts?


Back in the day WCBS-FM would play Bob Dylan hits including:
  • Like a Rolling Stone
  • Positively Fourth Street
  • Rainy Day Women #12 and #35
  • Knockin' on Heaven's Door
They would also play covers including:
  • Blowin' in the Wind - Peter Paul and Mary
  • Mr. Tambourine Man - The Byrds
  • It Ain't Me Babe - The Turtles
The WCBS-FM of today plays hits of the 80's and 90's.  Once Dylan entered those decades, he was an album artist.  The station does not play songs of that era that may appeal to their desired audience,

I can understand Q-104.3 having such a contest but not a classic hits station.  I cannot understand why WCBS-FM would entice its listeners by having a contest giving away Dylan tickets.
