Re: Where's Art Bell When You Need Him?

George Noory has turned boring and nutty. The alternative medicine peddling, political conspiracies, poor interviews, and all the nonsense was making C2CAM unlistenable for me. I'm not opposed to a little craziness, that's the essence of the show, but this became too out in left field for me. I used...

Re: Will WJR Soon Drop Talk For All News?

Talk, news, politics, sports, music, etc etc etc. Same tired formats. Radio hasn't seen new programming concepts since television knocked it to a new purpose. I'd like to see radio evolve and recapture growing audiences with new programming concepts, rather than the continuously-recycled, cost-effec...

Re: Frank Beckmann to retire from WJR

I wish him well in retirement. That length of time on the same station is quite an accomplishment, and I know he had many loyal listeners. I stopped listening a long time ago when the politics seemed to move further away from my views and I couldn't relate. Any speculation on if this announcement is...

Also, R.I.P. 98.7 The Breeze, I loved their JAM jingles.
I have HD radio in my car, so I listen to WNIC-HD2. I am pretty sure WNIC's "Sunny Radio" and The Breeze had the identical jingles.

Re: RIP 89X

I am 36. I am also delighted 580 survived (at least for now). I am listening to it right now while I work, as I typically do. (As I was preparing to "tape" the 89X and 93.9 switch on an old tape and tape recorder because my computer doesn't have a line-in input anymore, the tape I grabbed had an old...

Re: 89X,93.9 The River & AM580 are Gone

Why do you say AM 580 is gone? 580's Twitter and Facebook are still in existence; 89X and 93.9 The River are not.

Re: Old WJR Radio Guide

I loved these things pre-internet. I would grab a new one whenever I went to Big Boy, stick it in my glove box, and would take it with me when the family would travel. I still have one.

Re: C2CAM gone from CKLW?

Well, C2C never came back to CKLW in its full capacity. Unrelated, I noticed the past few nights that WCAR has been off the air, so I got to work trying to DX 1080 and 1100. This was an opportunity for me since I live a mile from WCAR and it’s a nuisance signal to me, typically preventing me from he...

Re: Most distant AM/FM/TV signal you ever tuned in?

This must be a season of intense e-skip. Yesterday WDZH 98.7 was wiped out by KLUV-FM 98.7 from Dallas Ft. Worth - a distance of somewhere between 1,200 and 1,300 miles. This is probably my farthest FM catch. I received this on accident in my truck along I-94 south of Port Huron - no big/high antenn...

Downriver AM transmitters

Can someone explain the strategy behind broadcasters placing an AM transmitter downriver, especially in SE Michigan? It seems the 50kw AM radio stations in SE Michigan and Western Ontario have antennas located downriver. 760 downriver since the 30's 800 downriver on the other side since the 40's 950...

Re: C2CAM gone from CKLW?

CKLW airs the show on weekends. I listened last night, and Noory was going on about how you shouldn't have to be vaccinated. I wonder if CK decided C2CAM is guilty of spreading misinformation and works against the public interest? If so, I wonder if it will return after the coronavirus situation is ...
