Re: Overkill

Some areas don't get updated often at all... I've been washing the same pickup in my driveway according to street-view for nearly 6 years. Overhead is about 3 years old for me, yet I've seen where some areas change yearly. On google earth, I just now zeroed in on the exact location of the tower. The...

What is it? It's....

When did "it is" or the contraction "it's" become the standard when referring to your name, the artist/singer, a station element and even the call letters/slogan? It's getting more and more commonplace, and sounds as if the announcer doesn't have anything else to say, or doesn't have a way out of wh...

The Mackinac Bridge has WHNC at 530 and 1610. One is for the south end, the other for the north end.

Re: WCKC now The Drive

History trivia.. what does WCKC stand for? "Cadillac's Kc Country" - from back in the late 80's when we simulcast WMKC (MacKinaC) as "KC-Country." Previously WYTW, a strange idea Doc Benson had to use something similar to WITW (previously used calls in Cadillac) thinking that it would somehow make p...

Re: Broadcast House lied

My take on this - unless it is actually live with no delay, no pre-recorded segment, then it is not live. The term "live" should be eliminated from radio and TV reporting and programming. Voice-tracking isn't live. Recorded segments aren't live. "Broadcasting live from..." should really be "Broadcas...

Re: Ludington Bandscan / July 23, 2016

Saturday had 95.5 WQEZ coming in clear in St.Ignace if my car faced north/south but turn east/west and WIFC was clear. Along the lake Huron shore, a Canadian station on 95.5 intermittently covered both stations.

"is not a radio station"

Exactly. Streams, podcasts, Youtube videos, etc are not broadcasts or telecasts.

Re: They Should Have Stayed In Cheboygan!

"K-C is still in Munising."

The Munising mill is owned by Neenah Paper Products now.

Speaking of the Munising mill, back when it opened, my grandfather was the chief chemist for the facility.
