In fairness - I cannot stand WCSX's current playlist, either!

Re: Michigan Politics under Political Potpourri?

Not a bad idea!

I will give this suggestion strong consideration.

Re: Windows 10 upgrades are still available for free!

Completed the upgrade to Windows 10 on my Windows 8 laptop today. Took twice as long as my desktop PC; about 3 hours this time. My laptop is a cheap one (AMD A8 quad core processor) and was purchased in 2013 or 2014. The operating system works like a charm so far. Activation of Windows 10 occurred a...

Re: Three CBS-Owned CW Stations Add Nightly News

I still have yet to watch either 50 or 38 at 10PM weeknights. I keep forgetting! LOL

Will make a concerted effort to do so Monday night.

Re: What happened to Maz on the DMP?

Some of the descriptions here sound an awfully lot like the final few years of their run in mornings at WRIF. I didn't like the show then. Obviously, I wouldn't like it now,

Glad to see I'm far from alone in my disdain for Marc Fellhauer.

Re: On a scale of 0-10, how worried are you about coronavirus?

About a 0.5 for me at this point. The mainstream media like to spread panic about the latest epidemic or virus. They do it every year. They'll resort to anything to whip middle aged suburban women into a frenzy and make them pay attention to the news. Using unfamiliar, scary sounding names is part o...

Re: wllz

Surprised you were in range of WGRD! Some tropo activity, perhaps?

WILZ gets great ratings for a Class A signal (then again, so does 103.9 The Fox in Flint).

Re: Windows 10 upgrades are still available for free!

I was a Windows 10 skeptic - and similar to a car model that just underwent a complete overhaul that lacks a reliability track record - I was in no hurry to dump Windows 7. I was a satisfied 7 user. Worked pretty damn well on my PC. I read about the comparability issues Windows 10 users were experie...

Windows 10 upgrades are still available for free!

Do NOT assume you need to shell out $129.95 (or whatever goofy price Microsoft is charging) to upgrade from Windows 7 Home to Windows 10 Home or $199.95 to upgrade from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro! In fact, don't assume you need to shell out even a nickel! :hat Instead, follow the steps listed h...

Re: News 8 Updated Anchor Lineup/New Newscast Addition Announced

Wow. Quite the effort on WOOD/WOTV's part to obfuscate the fact Ginter's former position is being eliminated in an apparent budget cut.

Re: "We cannot play two females back-to-back"

I'll be damned - the Tweet evidently came from Barb, the morning show co-host. She stated to VICE that the station will not play two female artists back-to-back. I absolutely believe she was telling the truth and was not bluffing! The OM/PD (Brian Hatfield) then entered into the conversation and (IM...

Re: wllz

I've not noticed any improvement in the analog audio; sounds about the same to me. (True, adjacent channel interference is eliminated...but no one in Metro Detroit is trying to tune into 106.5 or 106.9.) Also, over the last week or two, the playlist has taken a turn for the worse. Queen is getting w...

Re: Debate MIA?

I posted the Chicgao Tribune piece from a conservative opinion columnist earlier. Now, here's another view from the right.

It's not very often that The Nation, Rolling Stone, and Tucker Carlson can all agree on something!
