I worked at zyp. They called the ones they play to death their "power songs" and at the time they didn't want you to play two females back to back, or males, or groups, or blacks. You spent most of your time looking for something you could play on that stupid color coded hour clock they had.
They faked a lot of the contests, but I wasn't in on that because I was just starting out and worked the late shift. The dude before me would run out of names and ask me when I came in. I gave him "Blazes Boils" once and he went with it.
The owner was a real dick, he was sort of like the two old guys in "Trading Places" he had a lot of money, so he liked to f*&k with people.
At the time they called themselves a "rock" station, but they were not anything close, although they had a few good songs. They still have a few songs off my albums I dubbed and they play one every now and then during the retro lunch. My kids love that stupid station.
