Re: The Ticket West Michigan

FWIW I tend to get a very strong signal for most of my morning commute from Breton Village Mall area almost all the way to GVSU's Allendale campus. I start getting some static just west of the river on Lake Michigan Drive. Afternoon/Evening I don't know cause I rarely listen then, but I did have it ...

Re: The Ticket West Michigan

Are these clowns still lying to their audience as to the real reason behind 106.1's sign-on delay? Why do you think they are lying? It comes down to the Big guy not knowing what the hell is really going on and announcing to everyone a target date for 106.1 turning on when he doesn't even know for s...

Re: The Ticket West Michigan

Being completely ignorant on this topic, I'm wondering out loud: how much would an install/setup like this be effected by weather? Obviously we had the polar vortex issues but even beyond that we've had plenty of days here in West Michigan with temps well below freezing. Are these components sensiti...

Re: Get ready for more awful morning radio...

As I believe Sage once (correctly) pointed out - the "beer" scene in G.R. is centered on fairly upscale microbreweries, not the beer tent crowd that 101.3's type of music appeals to. Don't get me wrong - I have nothing against beer tents! :hat The moniker would've been a better fit for a station wi...

Re: WSNX adds Mojo in the Morning

Not being someone who's in the business at all, is this a new(ish) trend in radio? Syndicated, but still semi-local? I mostly just listen to sports radio honestly and it seems like it's happened at lot there with the "Unnamed" one, Sean Baligian, now Gregg, Big Drew, and Jim... Of course, that might...

Re: Fall 2016 - DISASTROUS book for WBBL!!!

I listened to Billy yesterday for about 20-30 minutes 'cause 96.1 had a national feed. When I started listened, I got commercials... oh well, that's free radio, so whatever... then Billy came on and for the next three-four minutes did all his promos about Brann's, AutoValue, and Mercy Health (which ...

Re: JIM PRICE STINKS!!!

I don't think anyone's ever claimed that Jim's a genius. And, yeah, he uses jargon that kind of sounds made-up, and he's a bit repetitive and sometimes silly. But he's also very knowledgeable, joyful, upbeat, humble, self-deprecating, funny, and passionate. I won't disagree with what you're saying ...

I guess this is the only place a person can comment on a DSR article, now that the pathetic little girl in charge has deactivated the Comments feature. The comments are the best part, and pretty much the only reason I give that venom-fluff site any of my time. It's sure not the biting wit of the ad...

Re: Gregg Henderson Returns

As a west-sider, what should I expect out of Henson? I wasn't overtly impressed with him in the little bit he was on in GR yesterday on 96.1. Ranting about how Olympians have to pay taxes on their medals but they don't get any money for winning... um, yes they do. Granted, $25K (for a Gold, $15K and...

Re: Eric Zane apologizes to FBHW

He revealed that some of the more controversial "Joe Stunts" were phoned in from another office in the studio because Russ Hines wouldn't allow them to actually perform them in public. Hmm... that does seem a bit like breaking an unwritten rule. I mean, on one hand I wouldn't be a fan on a show I w...

Re: Eric Zane apologizes to FBHW

Apparently EZ pulled back the curtain on a Joe Stunt and FBHW got butthurt about it. How exactly did he "pull back the curtain"? I mean I'm not a radio insider so I'm purely speculating here, but did he violate on of those fun "unwritten rules" in what he did? For example, in politics you can gener...
