Hiya Jeff.

According to Wikipedia:


Typically, classic rock stations play rock songs from the mid-1960s through the 1980s. Some of the songs overlap with those played on oldies stations, but classic rock also focuses on hard rock and heavy metal bands and artists that are less radio friendly and therefore are usually not played on oldies stations. Classic rock stations have historically been hesitant to add 1990s rock such as alternative rock and grunge to their playlists, due in part to the drastic difference in style, but (mirroring a similar trend in classic country, where a similar 1990-era divide also exists) a small number of classic rock stations began adding 1990s music in the early 2010s.[18] Unlike AOR radio stations, which played all tracks from albums, classic rock plays a much more limited playlist of charting singles and popular album tracks from artists and bands.

They have a partial list here.

It finally happened. I've just been waiting for it. That  radio station I tune my clock radio to, the station that plays songs from the 1970s to, I guess, the early 1990s, woke me up this morning with "My Sharona."  Grin

There's a station in my area (101.1 - CBS FM) that plays that same stuff, and I've started listening to it.   They seem to play "My Sharona" every other day.

I'd rather hear this Knack song, I always liked it better.

Musician, songwriter and producer Reggie Lucas dead at 65.


Reginald Grant Lucas (February 25, 1953 – May 19, 2018) was an American musician, songwriter and record producer.

Early in his career, Lucas was an R&B and jazz guitarist, playing with Billy Paul in the early 1970s and then with Miles Davis from 1972 to 1976.  It was in Davis' electric band (one that included Pete Cosey, Michael Henderson and Al Foster) that Lucas met percussionist Mtume, who would later become his production partner. The two joined singer Roberta Flack's band in 1976, and toured with her for several years.

Following his stint as a touring jazz guitarist, Lucas shifted his focus to songwriting and producing, where he gained both fame and critical praise, at first working as part of a production team with percussionist James Mtume – the two would later go on to write and produce hits for a number of artists, including Stephanie Mills, Phyllis Hyman, Lou Rawls, the Spinners and Roberta Flack.

In 1980, Lucas and Mtume won a Grammy Award for Best R&B song for their composition "Never Knew Love Like This Before", which was performed by Stephanie Mills.

As the 1970s came to a close, Lucas branched out and began to write and produce material by himself. In addition to his own instrumental record (1978), "Survival Themes", one of his first solo projects was  producing Madonna's 1983 self-titled debut album, including the songs "Physical Attraction" (which was a Top 10 dance hit) and  "Borderline", which became her first Top 10 single.  Lucas has since gone on to work with Rebbie Jackson, Randy Crawford and The Four Tops on his own. He was also a member of the short-lived group Sunfire, who released one album in 1982. Lucas produced their single "Young Free and Single".

In 1986, Lucas founded the Jersey City recording studio Quantum Sound. Clients included the Pet Shop Boys, Jodeci, Jeff Buckley and Sepultura.
