Re: LAV STA/application status

Definitely transmitting from Allendale. When they were transmitting from 107.3 sight they were fading out at the 97/31 interchange and were not coming in well in Holland. They are now consistently listenable to Shelby and to the Ganges area. When on 107.3 tower they were also coming in quite well no...

Re: Lee Van Ameyde Dies at 66

Met him several times. Worked around him during newscasts as I was doing my internship at WZZM with Bill Steffen and George Lessens in the summer of ‘98. Great personality and human being.

Re: 101.3 The Brew

How would a station like KDRB Des Moines fair in this market?

Re: Most distant AM/FM/TV signal you ever tuned in?

From just west of Mt.Pleasant, MI picked up 94.9 out of Miami, Fl. While in Minneapolis picked up a station on 103.3 from the Carolinas. And in my trip from Odessa to SanAntonio TX, picked up several stations from northern WI. Called WDEZ and chatted with jock who ended up putting it on air.

Re: Sunny 92.5 / 97.5 Nash Icon

I know that there was a lot of theories before 94.5 and 107.3 did their switch, I believe one of those theories was an LPFM going up in Muskegon at 99.1 FM to broadcast “The ticket”. Could it be possible that there are scrapping the 99.1 FM and the Nash icon and putting “The Ticket” on 97.5 in the n...

Re: Nash has reverted to Thunder branding and has added 107.3!

I know that 94.5 does top of the hour as WKLQ now and has for three days. I have not been able to listen at the top of the hour on 107.3 FM. However,I flipped to 107.3 and heard just before they went to George strait “the heartland” and I quote “Thunder country is back in West Michigan at 94.5 and 1...

The studio is located on the opposite side of business 31 than Mona Lake just west of the exit to Muskegon Heights.

Re: Nash has reverted to Thunder branding and has added 107.3!

I think it makes sense to move country to 107.3 if their intention is to go after B-93, which I think is what they are doing with the “Nobody plays more country” position. They are definitely gaining a tremendous amount of real estate with the move of frequency. If you cut off everything west of the...

Re: Radio And the year you Graduated.

Graduated in 1989, spent my teen years loving 94.5 WKLQ and the morning zoo. The battle between Bubba the Love Sponge and Danny Douglas was a little over the top and at times unprofessional, but as a teen I loved the competitive music between WKLQ, WGRD and WSNX(sunny FM). Also, being in extreme NW ...

Re: Winter Storm Watch and the idiots who predict it.

So, we have people on here calling meteorologist idiots and then go on and use a double negative saying that “we won’t get nothing”. Does that mean we are going to get a lot? And then we have people calling the Toledo station dumbasses, and then proceed to use the wrong form of the word there. I sug...
