106.7 Detroit Is Beaten Away With Rock

106.7 The D Beat Detroit WDTW Classic Rock Clear Channel

Clear Channel has flipped Rhythmic AC “106.7 The Beat” WDTW Detroit to 80?s based Classic Rock “106.7 The D“.

The move positions the station in between Greater Media’s Active Rock 101.1 WRIF and Classic Rock 94.7 WCSX. The demise of the previous format should give some breathing room to sister CHR “Channel 95.5” WKQI and Hot AC “Fresh 100.3” WNIC as it eliminates overlap between the three.

106.7 ran a similar format from 2002 to 2006 as “106.7 The Drive“. The new format is debuting jockless with 10,000 songs commercial free.

The first hour of 106.7 The D consisted of:
AC/DC – For Those About To Rock
Scorpions – Rock You Like A Hurricane
Motley Crue – Dr. Feelgood
Pink Floyd – Another Brick In The Wall
Rush – Tom Sawyer
Bon Jovi – Livin’ On A Prayer
Judas Priest – Living After Midnight
The Beastie Boys – You Gotta Fight For Your Right
Billy Squier – The Stroke
Journey – Separate Ways
Guns N’ Roses – Sweet Child O’ Mine
Lynyrd Skynyrd – What’s Your Name
Aerosmith – Dude
Boston – Peace Of Mind
