On the Radio

Recommended Posts

Driving to work today I heard Kashmir and WLL back-to-back. I live in Eastern Canada (Newfoundland to be exact) and the main radio station here plays a lot of zep since passcodes were issued for the Ahmet tribute concert last year, they even had 2 tickets up for a contest (that I never won despite numerous entries). I never took notice before then, So I cannot comment before that time. The station did have the most ever entries for a single contest in the station's 30 year history...but then again, that's little surprise.

Anyhow, that station plays several Led Zep songs per day (and that's only what I hear) and are the most played non-mainstream artist on that radio station, even more than on our local classic rock station. Kashmir, WLL, CB, STH, TY, RO, Heartbreaker, BD, OTHAFA, TBOE, IS, NQ, DM, and DD are played on a regular basis. Sometimes something unusual comes up like, ALS, HHWCID, or WGG comes on. Even some live performances.

ROCK ON

There's a little local rock station here where my home is (not Austin) and whenever I listen to the radio, it's that channel. Well, I had a Zep CD in the car and 'Misty Mountain Hop' was playing... I ejected it because it started skipping and the song was on the radio.. at nearly the exact same spot. They NEVER play 'Misty Mountain Hop' on the radio.. come to think of it, this was probably the first time I'd ever heard it played on the radio. I was pleasantly shocked. Very cool coincidence.

Last week on Q107 I was generally surprised to hear "Down By The Seaside". Something they rarely play - if at all. It was a nice change from "Rock And Roll" or "Black Dog".

That's the thing that irritates me about Q107. Don't get me wrong, it's a great radio station but when it comes to Zeppelin they play the shit out of 'Black Dog' and 'Rock and Roll.' The only time I hear the more obscure tracks are during Psychedelic Psunday or if someone calls in to make a request. With a band like Zep, Q107 shouldn't have this much trouble finding songs to play.  :lol:

But, they did redeem themselves because a few nights ago around 2 am they played 'In The Light'   B)

I remember a few months ago when Q107 had their "Zeppelin Weekend". You could request ANY song by them, and people were STILL requesting those 2 songs. I was almost literally banging my head on my desk in frustration.

:lol: I know!!! What's wrong with some of these Torontonian Zep fans?? I'd rather have 'Whole Lotta Love' over those two songs...that's the other one in heavy rotation on the mighty Q but I love that one and therefore don't mind it.

Hello:

I prefer the London station fm96..They include less familiar Zep tunes as well as familiar ones.

They are not a classic rock station. They have newcomer as well as veteran artists...I think this makes the station more interesting. The fans get a variety of tunes.....and we all know the saying "variety is the spice of life"...

I also went on about how I heard him in London in 05 when he was on his solo tour..the staff just smiled..I think she likes Robert to!!!

I would LOVE to hear this on the radio.

Q107 is having some strange thing this weekend called QStock and promoting it as if it were a real concert, when it's actually 1 hour of live songs by a band each hour for 4 days. Led Zeppelin is scheduled to "close the show" Monday night at 10pm. It will be nice to hear a full hour of live Zep on the radio. :)

Yes indeed! I wonder if it's going to be stuff from TSRTS or HTWWW? I'll tune in to make sure. Thanks Roxie!

I was so surprised when they actually played some Knebworth stuff!

Q107 is having another Led Zeppelin Weekend right now celebrating their 40th anniversary. I've heard a few pre-recorded Jimmy snippets, but I was a bit disappointed that it never mentioned about Jimmy being in town for "It Might Get Loud".

WELCOME i baker:

Yes there are alot of London and area fans here.

I think there are not only many Zep fans in the area but there are many people of British descent...

THE HAWK appears to have changed their format. I don't hear them saying THE HAWK much...I mainly here 103.9...I rarely listen to it anymore....the tunes seem to be more TOP 40 stuff...
