Thread: VH on Radio

    I listen to Peoria's rock station rock106 everyday at work, at least for the last 4 months. Usually if I'm lucky they play one Van Halen song a day. But the last week and a half or so, they've been playing a Van Halen song about every hour, at least 4 or 5 times a day.

    What's up? Is it just coincidence, are they trying cash in on the rumor buzz, or is there an impending album soon to be released. I've always noticed that right before an artist releases a new single, radio air time goes up for all their older material, at least here in Peoria.

    Just noticing a trend.

    You are right about the fact the play the band more around new releases or concerts coming to town.

    In Milwaukee, if Rush is coming out with a new album or coming to town, they are on the radio every 15 minutes, or so it seams.

    Same in Cleveland. Tons of Classic VH. They even had a interview with Gary on Friday. It was very similar to the others posted, but Gary did say something funny, he said he knew he would be the first to hear the new record. I guess he must still have a good relationship with them.

    Lots of VH being played on
    105.9 WHCN and 106.9 WCCC in Hartford.
    I heard "Where Have All the Good Times Gone"
    on 99.1 WPLR in New Haven today. The DJ talked about the rumors with Dave back with
    VH. Same stuff we've being hearing lately.

    May the Phoenix that is Van Halen rise again!

    The only station I listen to plays Van Halen and Van Hagar ALL the time . Normally I won't listen to the radio . I like to listen to what I want when I want ya know . I kinda look at radio as if it is BS propaganda , like MTV
