It’s the third of June, and two popular songs began with this date — “Ode to Billie Joe” by Bobbie Gentry and “Desiree” by Neil Diamond. There’s a little coincidence to ponder if you know the tunes. While the second most popular station in metro Detroit is oldies WOMC-FM (104.3), it’s amazing that so many major cities, such as Indianapolis and Baltimore, have lost their oldies stations to the new “Jack” format which “plays everything — like an iPod on shuffle.” In Detroit, the format’s called “Doug FM” and can be found at WDRQ-FM (93.1)...
