Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

Not my type of music. What a clusterfuck of a switch though. What purpose did L & W serve, other than to again tell current listeners they weren't going to like the change.
As has been mentioned before, it will be interesting to see if the Rogers braintrust will spend money on promoting the station outside the coporate family.
And one other thing... if they wanted FUN listeners to switch to JACK, why not move the Red Rock Diner to JACK as well.
Being nice is my resolve - in 2012

Maybe because Red wouldn't be "Playing what we want".... :-)
