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

I'm inching closer and closer to getting an online subscription to one of the papers. Can't read as many sports stories as I'd like. Anyone else heading in this direction?

Re: Christmas Music

You may be right, but I may be crazy. I think there are a lot of people who aren't going to be that hyped for Christmas this year. Everyone is tired, many are broke, and lots of business owners who would usually thrive on the Christmas season and not survive without it are out of business. Yeah, it...

Christmas Music

I was shuffling the music that I have copied to my PC, and the occasional Christmas song came up. It sounded pretty good. In about six weeks, when the Christmas music starts up again, I'm guessing there will be fewer complaints than usual, because of this year's Triple Whammy (COVID-19, protests, pr...

Re: Haley Stevens Roop Raj political commercial

I cant believe also that Fox 2 would ok this for the same reason . Help me out hear gang . I find this very conf...

Re: Gretchen the Media Queen

Of all the manipulative tricks that Whitmer and her allies in the state government and media have tried, nothing is more disgusting than her attempt to boost the COVID-19 numbers by exploiting the tragic death of a two-month old baby with other obvious health problems: https://www.detroitnews.com/st...

Re: Coronavirus Playlist

The outbreak of COVID-19 on college campuses reminds me of these lyrics from "Diamond Dogs" by David Bowie:

"As they pulled you out of the oxygen tent
You asked for the latest party"

Re: Ron Cameron

I heard a recorded female voice do the station ID at the top of the hour. Can't tell if Martin is there, I am betting he is but keeping his mouth shut, no technical difficulties so I am bet he is. Ron sounds like he's in a fantastic mood like he took his meds today or something. Why does this Mark ...

Fenech is actually a pretty decent writer but he is a shit stirrer and he's kind of a turd. He's not well liked by many of the players and co workers.
He is a good writer, but if you've ever heard him in person, you know he's a jerk.

Re: Ron Cameron

Ron is pretty calm and friendly today. I wonder if the station told him that if he doesn't get his act together, they're dumping him. It certainly helps his disposition to not have Martin there, or, if he was present, in a muzzled state. I wasn’t able to hear all of yesterday’s show, but I don’t re...

Re: Old WJR Radio Guide

IMHO, these were the greatest days of radio. Adult Standards: Check. Rock Oldies: Check. Top 40: Check (this was the Second British Invasion!). I could happily listen for hours on end😄 In the 43 years that I've lived in Metro Detroit, the 80s was my favorite radio time too. A wide variety of pop an...

Re: Ron Cameron

Interestingly, Ron was able to completely calm down after the flare-up, which showed some professionalism and experience. And later in the show, Kurt and some other guy called in with some good Memory Lane stories that are a strength of the show. But this show does feel like a significant turning po...

Re: Media Coverage of Local Sports Protests

Nobody can walk away from the NFL no matter how hard we try especially if we have fantasy leagues with friends and coworkers. I'm a big baseball fan, so I confess it's hard to ignore the Tigers, especially when they show signs of ending the years of losing. I'm trying to rationalize that everyone i...

Re: Brandon Roux, is every day casual Friday?

I find his physical gestures and vocal delivery very uncomfortable to watch . Ah, so it's not just me who finds his delivery awkward. The other day I described Roux as the Bernie Smilovitz of weather. He's that bad. Ben Bailey I can watch all day. Even Andrew Humphries (they might not get the forec...
