Calm down all you WCCC 106.9 FM fans. “The Rock” active rock isn’t going anywhere. Play lists will still include new rock from artists including Papa Roach and Stone Sour just as before.
A Facebook fire has ignited in the wake of Hartford’s WCCC radio station’s announcement that it is expanding its music library to also include “old” rock music as well.
“Today at 5 p.m. through Tuesday at noon we begin non-stop, non-interrupted program of 1069 greatest rock songs of all time,” program director Mike Picozzi said Friday about the changes that are being made by station owner, Marlin Broadcasting. “And then we start using an expanded library that will include older rock music from rock stars like Eric Clapton, ZZ Top and Stevie Ray,” he said. “We will still be playing new rock music but old rock as well for a broader audience of listeners . The Rock isn’t going anywhere.”
The independent station that markets itself as the only non-corporate operation in the state, has a broadcasting stable of djs including Raven in the Morning, Klonk in the Afternoon and Mike Karolyi.
So why the change?
“Why not,” said Picozzi.
And as far as the logo? Still “The Rock” for now.
