Want me to tell you what the number-one song is? No, I wouldn't do that. But I must say it's nice to hear a lot of songs -- at least in the first half of the countdown -- that haven't been played to death on FM classic-rock stations.

After it's done, it would be cool to see the song list, even just the top 100 or so.

I'm going to guess Stairway to Heaven at #1

Mister Aaron, would you like me to tell you if your guess is correct? No, you'll just have to keep listening. And I'm assuming you're not referring to this #9 hit from 1960:

The top 3 songs on every weekend top 500 of all time in SK when I grew up was always:
1 Stairway to Heaven
2 Hey Jude
3 Hotel California

No spoilers but only 2 of those songs made this top 10.

Does anyone know how these songs were ranked? Who chose the order?

The Top 1000 includes 37 Rolling Stones songs and 27 Beatles songs. But Knockin' On Heaven's Door at #5 and Hey Jude only #126? Welcome To The Jungle only #840 but U2's Pride at #17? Yikes! We should each name our favorite classic rock songs and compile them into our own list! I bet it would be very different from SiriusXM's list.

I know it was probably edgy and deep at the time, but Knockin' is a really horrible song. And not just a really horrible top 1000 song, but even bottom 1000.

There was lots of WTF moments. General feeling I had was a lot of songs I could see where they were but I heard the next song and wondered is this really better than the last song?

I mentioned a Guns N' Roses song and I mentioned Knockin' On Heaven's Door. Does anyone remember the Guns N' Roses version of that song? It reached #18 on Billboard's rock chart in September 1990 but failed to make the Hot 100. Hurry and listen!

I like that version better. Didn’t pay attention to original until after I heard it.

Has anyone heard if Yacht Rock is coming back for the summer? I know it was on 70 last year, but I could see them possibly putting it on 30.

There is an ongoing discussion of Yacht Rock Radio at

XMFan.com :: #1 Fan Site of Sirius XM Satellite Radio :: Yacht Rock Radio

SiriusXM listeners are all one big happy family so I'm assuming the DRC administrators won't object to my posting a link to another site. As far as I know, Yacht Rock Radio will not be returning to a satellite channel. If it does, I will post the news here. It remains online at Channel 311. But wait -- there's more! Adam Ritz hosts a weekly two-hour Yacht Rock Radio syndicated program. You can see which stations carry it at

Affiliates - Yacht Rock Radio

and you can hear a sample hour at
