Re: Eddie Van Halen dies

101.1 WRIF is also all Van Halen.

Wikipedia is likely to crash with all the disk jockeys across the country looking for stuff to say between the phone calls and Van Halen songs.

Eddie Van Halen dies

94.7 WCSX and 106.7 WLLZ are now playing all Van Halen music. Dave Dahmer and Doug Podell are live on the air. They are playing deeper cuts, not just the top hits.

After a long battle with cancer, Eddie Van Halen dead at 65. R.I.P.

Re: WWJ sounds great right now! Full 10 kHz analog bandwidth!

Today August 8, I was in the car listening to WWJ 950 and heard them constantly switching between analog and HD, and the HD indicator light was on. When I got home I tried my Sangean HDR-14 and found a solid HD signal on WWJ. HD on AM is not going away.

Re: 107.5fm WGPR?

WGPR’s existing web site (in the Urban One style) is:

hothiphopdetroit.com

At the top of the page in small print is an email address:

wgprdetroit@wgprdetroitfm.com

If you go to the web site:

wgprdetroitfm.com

it reads “Under Construction”. Are there changes in progress?

Re: Latest Numbers

Classical/Jazz 90.9 WRCJ has been slowly creeping up in the ratings. They are now at a 2.9 which has got to be the highest ever for that frequency. Where are their new listeners coming from, WJR?

Re: Fox’s strategy (WJBK related)

FOX has the contract for NFC (National Football Conference) teams. The Cleveland Browns are an AFC team. This is why FOX was willing to give up O and O stations in Cleveland and Boston. CBS has the AFC contract. There are some cross conference games and other rare exceptions.

Re: What will happen to 107.5 WGPR come January 1, 2020??

I just tuned in to 107.5 WGPR HD1 on my Sangean HDR-14. There were no song titles on the readout, but when I cycled thru the INFO/MENU button, page 1 read “Adult Hits”. I am too lazy to go outside and check my car radio.

A good time to make changes on 105.9 Kiss is when Tom Joyner retires at the end of the year.

Re: Catholic radio in Detroit

It doesn’t matter how boring the programs are or how few people listen....as long as the checks clear. Salem makes their money on their brokered time stations, not the conservative talk ones. Crawford also does this with 560 WRDT and 1200 WMUZ-AM. They even sell some time on WMUZ-FM.

Re: Catholic radio in Detroit

Immaculate Heart Media/Relevant Radio just made their third recent deal with Salem to buy a total of 14 AM stations (plus some translators) for their Catholic talk programming. Relevant Radio will now have stations in 22 of the top 25 markets. When will they come to Detroit?

Re: Catholic radio in Detroit

WDEO 990 Ypsilanti has a H*** null to the East-Northeast to protect CFPL 980 in London Ontario. WCAR 1090 (that used to be Catholic radio) also has a null to the East-Northeast to protect an allotment on 1090 in Kitchener Ontario. It will be difficult for a Catholic radio operator to find a signal f...

Re: Sangean HDR-14

I have an HDR-14 and have no problem with strong HD FM signals, with the exception of 106.7 HD-3. I don’t even need to extend the antenna all the way. Sensitive FM, but small speaker. HD AM is another story. 950 WWJ locks in okay. 1200 WMUZ a little less so. 910 WFDF, 1270 WXYT, and 1340 WCHB have p...
