A Closer Look at the EZ Rock 97.3 Playlist


I once took A Closer Look at the Edge 102 Playlist and with the big news from Humble Howard, I thought I'd take a closer look at the EZ Rock 97.3 playlist.

I'll be checking out Humble's new show, but like many of you who loved him on 102.1, I'm not really a Celine Dion kind of guy.  My plan is to listen to the chatter and vacate for 3.5 minutes when the Barry Manilow comes on.  But really, how bad could it be?

Here's the most recent songs played on EZ Rock and my personal rating of each tune.  10 is best, 1 is worst.  When you see a question mark that means I don't know the tune by name.
