HD 2 and 3 stations

Just got a car that has HD Radio, starting to check out the additional stations. Anyone have any recommendations on any that are worth listening to? Is there a guide anywhere that lists them? Noticed that WRIF now has an all Dave and Chuck channel as their HD3.

Re: AAA - can it still work in Detroit?

Just saw that KFOG the heritage AAA in San Francisco is flipping to sports talk next week. If AAA can't make it there it probably can't here.

Re: AAA - can it still work in Detroit?

Wonder how it would work out if Cumulus dumped Nash to carry their Ann Arbor AAA into the Detroit market? They have jocks that are known in Detroit like Martin Bandyke and Kelly Brown. It can't do any worse than Nash.

Re: It's finally happened!!!

I remember hearing from a credible source that Murray Brookshaw at 89X told the Incubus people that he would never play them again if they played the WRIF show. Also, ticket sales for that show stunk, they were not big enough to be playing the Palace at that time.

Re: Eric Clapton

I have the answer, because it doesn't "test well" among people that take tests to win tickets to a concert that was selling so poorly the promotor gave the station a bunch of tickets.

Re: March Nielsen numbers are out for Detroit radio

Cumulus needs to put WJR on 93.1, their 24-54 audience is non existent, has been dropping dramatically in the past year.

Re: Dave and Chuck The Freak

Hate to break it to you guys but they are by far the #1 rated morning show in the market Adults 25-54, 18-34 even more so, you have to give them credit for getting young people to listen to the radio. I never listen, just not my thing, but appreciate what they have done. Really everything they do is...

Re: Crooked Detroit news media give preferential treatment to DMC?

It's shameful how all of the big media companies protect advertisers that get into trouble. From the local level to national,you won't see much reporting on the drug companies price gouging or their guilt in the opioid crises as long as newscasts are full of drug company advertising. Beaumont was fi...

Re: 89X - audio distortion yet again! WTF?!?!

Bell Media doesn't give a shit about radio period. They wanted the cable TV properties and are bleeding the radio properties for cash flow. I think 89X has 1 full time employee.

Re: Holy shit, WNIC!

I think a lot of WNIC's Holiday ratings comes from restaurants and business that have the station on, If an employee has a people meter thats 32 quarter hours for an 8 hour day. A few years back in a diner I saw a waitress change the radio station to WNIC and tell another waitress that you get bette...

Re: Most improved radio stations in 2018

Don't listen to 89X anymore, just not my taste in music, I do think its smart that they finally made 89X not sound almost exactly like its sister station (The River). Also agree with you about the music programs on WDET, also like that they have added Marketplace and The Daily at 6pm.
