this was the period I was listening to KROQ, KROQ was not a colloege radio
station but a commercial station for LA and surroundings, they were the
only station that would play groups like echo and the bunnymen, smiths,
pixies, heaven 17, Simple Minds and many other icredible bands that the
other commercial stations and top 40 criminaly ignored. This music is very
important to me, It was the music of my life. I need the lists for top
106.7 songs for 1984-1992 I already have 1980, 81, 82, 83. Also if anyone
has 1977-79 it would be greatly appreciated.

Here You Go. I'm also looking for the lists for 77-79, but I don't know if
they even did the countdown then. I'm collecting everything on the lists.
I have everything for 80-83, need one for 84 (Boy Waiting), and have all of
85. The others I am gradually filling up. I put them on minidiscs and also
add minidiscs with other songs played for that particular year. This music
also had a particular impact on my life as well, as you can see. Remember
any obscurities that maybe I have forgotten that I can add to my lists??

Here is a playlist snippet from 1977 for KROQ 106.7 FM / 1500AM:

Some of the stuff below is kinda KROQ-compatible, but there are also quite a
few old farts (even in 1977) in this playlist! Finding this list was a
demystifying for me. In 1977 KROQ seems to have been a freeform rock
station with a bit of progressive/off-center leaning. It was Rodney in
August 1976 who brought in the Ramones, Blondie and the Runaways (all on his
first show too!) to KROQ. It wasn't until late 1978 or early 1979 when the
ROQ of the 80's format really started. From what I understand, though,
Rodney was having quite an influence on the regular (non-) format
programming of the pre-Rick Carroll KROQ. They even played Sit On My Face,
Stevie Nicks by the Rotters during non-Rodney hours!

I have almost all of 1988 to 1995 on CD-R, however I'm missing three

#106.7 of 1988 - Boy John Frost - Mother's Day
#106.7 of 1990 - Lewisidal Tendencies - Silent Night
#106.7 of 1991 - John Frost - Mr. TV's Turbo Round

I know (from this newsgroup) that the 1990 song was on a K&B Xmas CD.
I have no idea where to find the other two. I'm working on getting
1987 on CD-R but I'm having trouble finding "Contradiction" by Lions
and Ghosts (#71 of '87)


Jan 22, 2002, 8:11:59 PM1/22/02
I think the 106.7 songs are so difficult to get because they are all novelty
songs that may or may not be exclusive to KROQ. I just finally found "I Had
Sex With E.T." (106.7-1982) on Audiogalaxy. Some seem impossible to find.
I have the Lions & Ghosts song on 12".

Great list!!! I only had a couple of those on my list already. Dan
Hirschi's website has playlists for 77-79 listed, but there is no link that
works. 79 was an especially good year for KROQ, and I would love to get
hold of some playlists for that year. I liked the way they crossed songs
like "Gidget Goes To Hell" (Suburban Lawns) and "Blockhead" (Devo) with Van
Halen and the Kinks. It was very, as you stated, freeform with an anything
goes mentality.

What only adds to the difficulty in tracking down these songs is that
these lists have a lot of errors in them. Huge kudos to Eric Schwartz
for being the first one (I think) to compile and post these lists on
the internet, but every other website that has these lists (there are
three sites that I know of) apparently copied and pasted Eric's hard
work. It's pretty obvious when they all have the same errors :P (i.e.
wrong artist listed on the '82 and '93 lists, name of the song is
incorrect, etc.)

Unfortunately, I was too young to really be an avid KROQ listener in
the 80's so I'm only discovering all these errors as I search for the
songs. 1987 is really annoying me since I can't find the mp3s for
"Contradiction" by Lions and Ghosts or "Don't Need That Much" by
Private Domain. I'm slowly working my way down 1986 (I have
everything down to the #60s of that year)...
