    Default Van Halen on the Radio In SWEDEN

    Hi! 8)

    I'd always wonder how much Van Halen they play on your Rock Radio Stations. I mean, I live in Sweden, Stockholm(the capital) and I believe I'm one of the only ones from Sweden around here on the links, but I'm a VERY great fan of VH!

    Well anyway to the question, We got a rockstation in Sweden called "106.7 Rock Klassiker" and they play maybe 5-7 Van Halen tracks a day. Thats pretty much for being a Swedish rock-station.

    The five most common songs are:

    Panama
    RWTD
    Dreams
    Love Walks In
    Ain't Talkin' Bout Love
    Drop Dead Legs

    Do you thinks its a wierd combination of songs? For being Sweden? Haha.

    Well, which songs are most common on your station, and how many VH-tunes can you expect to hear one day?

    Greetings from Sweden!

    It's always cool to see that there are fans of the mighty VH all over the world. Our local station here in St. Louis, K-SHE, plays them all of the time. I"m way more into satellite radio now. On Sirius, Buzzsaw and Hair Nation play them all the time; as they obviously should.

    That's even alot for an Australian rock-station. Our main rock station here "104.9 Triple M" only gives us the hits:

    Jump
    Panama
    Hot For Teacher (this one's very rare but I hear it on ocassion)
    Why This Can't Be Love
    Dreams
    California Girls
    Just Like Paradise
    You Really Got Me (happened to hear this late one night when they were doing a countdown from 1977. The announcer liked it so much that he just had to play it again for a second time back-to-back)
    Bobby Cohn: Who's going to be at Waynestock?
    Wayne Campbell: Um, uh...Aerosmith & Pearl Jam!
    Garth Algar: Ha ha ha ha ho!
    Bobby: Who else?
    Garth: Uh, me...and...and Wayne...
    Wayne: ...and uh...VAN HALEN!!!
    Garth: Wow. Van Halen. Who else?
    Bobby: Yeah, who else?
    Wayne: Uh, an old man fashioning a kayak out of a log?

    Välkomnande till forum, Lodewijk5150, Jag icke gör det lyssna till radion.

    You'll have to excuse me, I'm not fluent enough to continue with my typing in Swedish. I haven't listened to the local classic radio stations to know how many times VH is played.

    Jack: Chloe, get me all you can on Ahmed Adudi… Does anyone there know Ahmed Adudi?
    Chloe O’Brien: Ahmed Adudi; wealthy Saudi financier… Disappeared into Afghanistan in the late 90s…
    Jack: … Really?
    Chloe (ironically): No Jack it’s a joke name, you’re being set up.
    Jack: DAMMIT!

    Yes, I'm Canadian with Norwegian and Swedish ancestry. I studied the language about 17 years ago. It takes a while for me to think how to say things. I have the books, mp3s, and a dictionary to help me out when I'm stumped.

    I've never heard them play Panama or Hot For Teacher. They do regularly play When Its Love as well.

    I've never ever heard WIL get played, mate. I think the only time I heard HFT was when they played it back-to-back with 'Jump'. 'Panama' is a regular from time to time here in Sydney.

    Just yesterday at work we changed our stations to "WSFM 101.7" for the old classic/easy listening which we never listen to and 'Jump' got a bit of airplay. Typical, hey? lol.

    Interesting that you hear Drop Dead Legs. I don't think I have heard that on the radio here in the last 20 years.

    In Boston, Massachusetts we hear these the most:

    Runnin with the Devil
    Eruption/You really got me
    Aint talkin Bout Love
    Jamies Cryin (and why is Jamie Cryin? the DJ pointed out was because "Jamie" heard Dave's Bluegrass crap)
    Ice Cream Man
    Dance the Night away
    Beautiful Girls
    And the Cradle will rock
    Everybody Wants Some
    Unchained
    Pretty Woman
    Dancin in the Street
    Jump
    Panama
    Hot for teacher
    I'll Wait
    "The spirit can not be contempt. The spirit can not be sour and angry" - DLR on The NEW Van Halen

    "Shutthefuckupity" - DIF on John Cusack.

    Boy, the Drop Dead Legs thing floored me. One of my all-time favorites, for sure. Never hear it on the radio.

    Here in Portland, Oregon the songs I hear the most are
    Runnin With The Devil
    You Really Got Me
    Dance The Night Away
    Pretty Woman
    Jump
    Panama
    Why Can't This Be Love
    Dreams
    When It's Love
    Right Now
    Poundcake
    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red

    Hey Lodewijk:

    I've got a friend in Stockholm (I guess he still lives there)...I've tried to find him online...I was wondering if you would be willing to look him up for me. If you are, I'll PM you with his name, etc. He and I became good friends many years ago when he was an exchange student at my high school...we visited and stayed in touch for many years but I haven't heard from him in about 5 years.

    Anyway, if you're able to help let me know and thanks!
    Over 17 years on the links!!
    ROLL DAMN TIDE!!
    First time I heard Unchained, I thought the lyrics were...."Blue-eyed mutha in a slashed white dress!"
    STAY FROSTY FRIENDS!
