We reported earlier this week that a former WCBS-FM music director was critical of the differences between the Oldies station then and its Classic Hits version today.
FishbowlNY reached out to CBS-FM program director Brian Thomas for a comment on that article.
Thomas says the original headline should have been called “Different Era-Different Styles of DJs.”
“Comparing jocks of different era is like comparing Arnold Palmer to Tiger Woods,” Thomas says.
Richard Lorenzo said earlier in the week that CBS-FM lacks style today.
“The ones [jocks] then weren’t necessarily more intelligent, but they were more enjoyable because they were into the craft more deeply,” Lorenzo said.
