Upper Michigan didn’t have any rock stations. We had WDBC AM 680. It was one of those stations that covered everything from polkas to the Rat Pack. Then there was Billy Johns Big Beat, Monday through Friday from 7-9PM, unless the Tigers were playing.
Then after dark. The mighty 10-90 KAAY our of Little Rock And Beaker Street.
