I think one's perspective owes a lot to the generation in which one came of age. I listened to top 40 radio from the late 1950s through the 60s, when playlists like WIXZ's survey were the norm. I work with a guy who grew up in the 1970s on album rock radio. Every year, when the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announces its inductees, he gets exercised about artists he feels are not relevant or worthy. ABBA? Brenda Lee? The Four Tops? Miles Davis? That's not rock & roll, he fumes. It's as if white guys with guitars, leather jackets, long hair & tattoos are the only true rock artists. I try to tell him that in my day, rock & roll was a much bigger tent -- and for that, we can thank the radio programmers of the era.
