Re: Larry King dies

I'm surprised he made it this long. Having a stroke that left him in a coma for weeks, losing two of his children in a span of weeks last year and now COVID. Larry was a fighter. He made talk shows pretty much what they are today and was the quintessential news talk show host for years. R.I.P. Larr...

Re: WLMB seeks a relocation to UHF

WLMB is hard to get on antennas in a decent part of the Toledo area, so expanding coverage should help with that.

Re: 106.5 Toledo

94.5's changed quite a bit playlist-wise compared to 10 years ago. They used to play Elton John, the Doobie Brothers and Janis Joplin regularly. Not so much anymore. Oh totally, Marshall Tucker, Grand Funk (besides "We're an American Band"), Steely Dan, etc. Shit, I remember hearing Dylan's "Hurric...

Re: 106.5 Toledo

I think killing off the Zone for the Ticket again would be a mistake. This version of the Zone plays newer, heavier music that WIOT largely does not, and takes listeners off of IOT one end of the demographic while XKR at least in theory takes listeners off at the older end, although XKR's music is ...

Re: 106.5 Toledo

I predicted awhile ago that 106.5 would go to a Jesuscaster, though I thought it would become an Air-1 affiliate. So this isn’t too surprising. My guess is that the Zone v4.0 is on borrowed time. Interesting enough, the original Zone was flipped to the Ticket and it looks like it will (probably) ha...

Re: Frank Beckmann to retire from WJR

I've listened to Frank's show a few times recently. He seems like he doesn't want to be there and sounds bored throughout, I'm sure it could be age though. I did listen to some of his old Michigan announcing. Pretty good. Best of luck in retirement.

Re: 106.5 Toledo

94.5 would likely be the new home for Lions and Tigers.

I know the Browns were on there from 2011-2012 until Cumulus dropped them. They also aired national games on there for a time too.

Re: 106.5 Toledo

98.3 brings in decent ratings in Monroe County, so I don't seem them flipping soon. 103.7 is decent although they play new country during overnights and mornings. I like the Zone as they're the only station in Toledo that plays new rock, but they have very low ratings and only have a few advertisers...

Re: Phil Spector, 81

While the man was a musical genius, he also served the last few years of his prison for murder. I'm not sure if he should be a respected person or not. It might be difficult to separate the art from the artist in this case.

Re: New host at 93.9 Virgin Radio

At least 93.9's morning show is local. 88.7's is not.
