School is back in session and PLR is giving you the only education you really need…a PhD in the best rock music of all time. Listen starting Friday at 10am throughout Labor Day weekend as we play every song in our library in alphabetical order. Forget about calculus and biology, it’s all about Zeppelin, Pearl Jam, Aerosmith and all the all-time greats.
Rules of the 99.1 PLR Haymond Law Back to School A to Z:
- We’ll start with numerical song titles first, then go from A to Z.
- If we play an original song and its cover (or two songs with the same title) we’ll play them alphabetical by artist last name, regardless of which came out first. (i.e. Aerosmith’s version “Come Together” will play before the Beatles’ version, but Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” plays before Guns N’ Roses)
- If a song begins with a parenthetical, whatever the first word inside the parenthetical determines where it plays (so The Rolling Stones’ “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” will play in the “I” songs)
- For “double” songs, we’ll play whatever the first song’s title is (Van Halen’s “Eruption/You Really Got Me” will play in the “E” songs – instead of back-to-back with the Kinks original)
- “The” gets ignored if it begins a song title (so Nirvana’s “The Man Who Sold The World” plays in the “M” songs)
