Central New York’s Greatest Hit Maker Decision 2012- Rod Stewart vs Billy Joel
It’s week two of Central New York’s Greatest Hit Maker Decision 2012. Week two means more elections, and more votes. We want to focus on what may matter to you the most this election season: The Music. Today let’s take a trip to 70′s Pop.
Last Monday our two candidates were from the 1970′s Pop Party. They were Rod Stewart and Fleetwood Mac. Rod Stewart beat out Fleetwood Mac in a landslide win. Stevie Nicks demanded recounts, and time and time again, Rod Stewart won.
It’s week 2 and can Rod Stewart survive this Primary vote?
Should our next President of Oldiez 96.1 come from the 1970′s Pop Party?
