Wrong Big 500. :-)

I listened on both Saturday and Sunday.
I kept updating my FB page as they were being played.
One thing I was VERY happy to see was the removal of the 1970's barrier that was in place when Bell Media took it over.
So on Sunday, they started at 83 and went down from there.
So here's the final 83 (this causes a rather large list... LOL )

As to the transition, They replayed the last 40 songs of the Big 500 from 6-8am, then an informational, then at 10 Announced it as 1150TSN, (or is it TSN1150... :-) )

I also listened to the Ticat game where there was numerous technical glitches and dead air with commercials out of sync with game play, resulting in game score changes happening without them being broadcast. That I found very frustrating, as that hadn't happened like that before.

Really enjoyed the oldies, but not a hard core sports listen, so it will be interesting to see how the fragmentation of the listenership effects it's ratings.
