McGroovey:

I remember when the Starcastle/Starz tour passed through Syracuse and/or Rochester. Not sure what year that was. I liked them both, and in my teenage memory they're the same band, though I have records by both and I know they're not.

I grew up midway between Rochester and Syracuse, and we listened to the rock stations from Rochester (WCMF and WSAY-AM) and Utica (WOUR). eventually there was a Syracuse rock station, WAQX. WCMF and WOUR playlists included rock (what we'd now call classic rock) and new wave and a little punk. WSAY tended more toward metal, in the seventies sense (Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep). Kiss would have been on the AM pop stations, not the rock stations.
