Re: The Breeze Drifts Away

Kevin O'Neill and Lisa Barry in the mornings and Detroit's soft rock favorites all day long are on Q 93.1, WDRQ FM. Kevin works for Cumulus still does he not? Why not make him PD and morning show host? Mornings: Kevin O'Neill and Lisa Barry Middays: Sandy Kovach Afternoons: Chuck Edwards Nights: Ren...

Re: 98.7 Alternative!

Entercom should move Chadd and Kristy over 99.5 WYCD to replace the current voice tracked afternoon drive show. They won't though.

Re: RIP 89X

Corporate radio never new, never original. I don't know that a station that plays Brandy Clark, Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, and Turnpike Troubadours would succeed, but hell if it wouldn't have been interesting.

Re: RIP 89X

What are the odds I can get an alt-country and/or real country format on 93.9? A station that plays a mix of real country and alt-country artists and leaves out the Jason Aldean's, Rascal Flatts, Florida Georgia Line and all the pop and bro bullshit? Give me artists like Aaron Lewis, Ashley Monroe, ...

Re: WDRQ must be making WYCD sweat

Who would have thought a year ago that 93.1 would be the station that would be live and local (almost) all day and 99.5 would be the one with canned content and voice tracking? DJ's and strong talent were the cornerstone of WYCD since its inception as Young Country 99.5 back in 1993. Oh well, corpor...

Re: WDRQ must be making WYCD sweat

I know it's Austin, TX and it has a far different demographic and music scene than Detroit does, but KOKE-FM out of Austin is the type of station I've been dying for. Instead of playing Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Chase Rice, Florida-Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Kane Brown, Racal Flatts, and Sam...

How long until the midday experiment flops and Exitcom reverses course and puts live and local hosts back in the midday and evening slots?

Re: September radio ratings

I'll be interested to see what 99.5 WY . . . errrrrr 99-5 'YCD's ratings look like during the next book after Exitcom gutted the once great country station.I hope they are a dumpster fire but I suspect people will still be tuning in. I wished Cumeless would have flipped 93.1 to either an alternative...

Lindsay Hunter was on Detroit Sports 105.1 a few years back with the PD Dave Shore in the afternoon.

Re: Canned national programming coming to WYCD

What a trainwreck the former CBS radio portfolio has become in Detroit between WOMC, WYCD, and WWJ. WOMC and WYCD were two of the strongest stations for years and had great, live and local talent and airstaffs that have now been stripped down to the bone. That was always one of CBS Radio's biggest s...

Matt Dery seems like another obvious choice given his connection to Stoney.

Re: 97.1

I'd like to see one of Herman Moore (former Lions WR), Sean Baligian, Jordan Strack from WTOL TV in Toledo, Tony Paul or Kyle Mienke from MLive get consideration for the shift. Matt Dery used to have Kyle Meinke on Detroit Sports 105.1 for Lions roundtables and I always thought Kyle sounded good on ...

Re: The "New" Mike Valenti Show on 97.1

Why not give Tony Ortiz a shot at being a host/co-host? I don't know how well Ortiz would pair up with Valenti given his softer, less aggressive personality. That said, Ortiz is certainly better than some of the dopes currently on the station and in the past. You're telling me Ortiz would be worse t...

Re: CSX back to #1

What caused the bounce back for 99-5 'YCD? Is this a normal summertime bounce due to people listening to country more in the summer?
