Re: Jamie Samuelsen

Okay, I get it. Great guy . . . but, at a time when everything has been cheapened and devalued, when Attila the Hun would be eulogized as someone who only wanted to give back to his community, shouldn't the outpouring of sentiment be viewed in the context of its time? I mean . . . only one person I ...

Re: Free Press & News putting up paywall on Aug 12

Everything on the Internet should be free to view and it's up to the reader to make a voluntary contribution (payment) depending on how valuable he or she thought the content was. Either that, or the writer should be paid on a pay per click basis. This was the "logic" offered me by editors and publi...

Re: Misheard Song Lyrics

The Stone Roses "I Wanna be Adored." The title can be misheard as "I wanna be your dog" or "I wanna be a door." People wanting to be household objects . . . it always reminds me of articles in which someone is identified as "the committee chair." I think : really? He (or she) looks more like an end ...

I hadn't listened in a while. On Sat 4-25 1160 is putting a suburban-quality signal into Lakeport. From the Wixom xmtr site? The legal ID is still "WCXI Fenton."

Re: y'think this might be true? (AM DX)

More likely is frequency squatting of outfits like K-LOVE and Smile FM meant to fill up the dial and prevent someone from putting a legal LPFM on the air -- on, say, 103.9 in Utica -- and broadcasting wrongspeak, or Alex Jones such as he is. How many Smile FM stations duplicating each other does the...

Re: Coronavirus Playlist

Not a new song, but a bit of pleasant news from Quebec with a musical connexion, via The World At Six (CBC R1): The gendarmerie in QC may soon get the power to bust people for standing too close together in public. One can thus imagine Madame, after such an intervention, telling her amorous BF -- "T...

Re: A Small Change Might Help WJR, Cumulus Ratings

The Progressive ad with the anncr warning what can happen when you become your parents and obsess over your lawn is funny, and it doesn't make me dislike the sponsor. Like the Jamie ad does. What a HORRIBLE piece of radio advertising, that makes me wonder what went on between the ears of folks at th...

Re: Tigers radio replays starting Monday night

They're on the 97.1 web site. Too many to copy and paste. Many are post-season games from 2011-12-13.

Re: Tigers radio replays starting Monday night

Lots of people care. 97.1's website has a streaming link. During the 1981 baseball strike, WJR re-played 1968 World Series games, NBC Radio coverage w Ernie Harwell and Pee Wee Reese. The Indians' flagship station, call letters WWWE at the time, re-played the 1948 World Series. Indians vs Boston Bra...

Re: Coronavirus Playlist

Simon and Garfunkel, "I Am A Rock." The last verse.

The Rascals "Good Lovin.'" Its plot line is the singer feeling bad, not knowing what he has, and going to Mr. MD for the cure.
