Essential Classic Rock Countdown

This week on WRCO FM 100.9, I will have the pleasure of counting down the best Classic Rock songs of all time.  I have thousands to back up the 'best' label.  Courtesy of this list was compiled last year.  Here is some of the background from Kent Kotal of F.H.  

as voted on by Classic Rock Fans from all over the country.

We monitored 30 Classic Rock Stations from 20 major cities across America for 100 days, documenting their daily play lists ...
We factored in six of those stations who ran Top 500 Memorial Day Countdowns ...
We factored in other published lists, not limited to Sirius / XM, Rolling Stone, Ultimate Classic Rock and others ...
We factored in downloads for all nominated tracks ... nearly 5000 titles in all were nominated before we pared the list down to The Top 3333 Most Essential Classic Rock Tracks Of All-Time.
But most importantly, we factored in the votes of Classic Rock Nation ...
And, when all was said and done, just under one million votes and/or points were tabulated to determine the rankings shown in the final list.
Thanks, Kent.  This Saturday night on Those Were The Days I will play the Forgotten Hits-Top 50 Essential Classics plus several extras.  Join me between six and midnight on WRCO FM 100.9.   Get your pen and paper ready and write them down.  This could be the ultimate playlist for your favorite listening device.  This is one of the best countdowns I have ever been a part of!   I will not be taking your requests this week.  That feature will return next Saturday night.   Stay well!  Keep on rockin'.
