Rock is dead, they say, was the Whos infamous proclamation in the 70s, and they may have been more prescient than they realized. Its no coincidence that most rock stations in Atlanta now have classic rock formats. All old, all the time. They may be dinosaur bands but a lot of them still put out new material, which never gets played on the radio. Without the Internet, would anyone have even heard of one of the most important albums of the year, Neil Youngs Living With War? Thats why we like the freewheeling format of DAVE-FM (92.9). Theres an interesting blend of old and new, and Mara Davis has the spiciest tongue on the local radio scene. Long live rock!www.929davefm.com/.
