Re: December Nielsen #'s for G.R. - worst book in nearly 30 years for WSNX!

I do wonder if "Real Oldies 1480 and 850" WGVU-AM's 1.1 is a high-water mark, since they took up this presentation what, 12 years ago. I listen to it, as it fits my demographic and I find more songs I want to hear there, versus "The Q" or rimshot classic hit signals. If I am trying to find the Spart...

Re: Charlie Tinker (ABC 12)

Bob Scott used to read wire and station news copy with telecine slides, doing news, sports and weather, about 6:15 a.m., back toward the end of the 70s, 1980, before they even had a locally produced, pre-"Good Morning America" newscast. Great voice!

Re: Ron Cameron

The whole premise of talking David Bowie has to do with it being Bowie's birthday, today? An oldies station on the west side of the state that I listened to pointed out this was Elvis' and Bowie's birthday, earlier.

Re: Conrad on Jethro

Well, it was the Spring of ‘92 when B-93 got started, so almost. Not sure how early Conrad joined up, moving over from KLQ.

By his profile pic, it appears he is getting his dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine as the shot is being taken.

Re: Cumulus Loses Lions, Where Will They Land In GR?

I remember interviewing for a job at WOOD near 30 years ago, which would entail a little tune spinning up to Lions pregame, then, running the board during the yelping of Mark Champion, at that time. Nice audible at the line of scrimmage to suggest GRD.

Dick Kernen of Specs Howard/WRIF Passes...

Seeing the social media posts in this regard, I was not a Specs graduate but see real grief from many who got their antennae tuned and succeeded, thanks to Kernen's effort and influence. Through these messages of tribute, I learned of his efforts to take WXYZ-FM and make it into the 'RIF, long ago. ...

Just bought the series on 3 DVDs off Amazon. Watched the documentary and can't wait to hear Bernie Kopell as "Baron Von Butcher."

Re: LAV Yesterday

I tuned in the Lions (because I am able to gain strength through pain) on 106.1 yesterday, don't they also carry the game on 96.9? Maybe some operator forgot to push all the appropriate buttons.

Re: Bye, Rhonda.

The opening slate for this "Rhonda," with an audience looking like they're hyping up for a show is quizzical at best. There are also the Priority Health fellow and dominatrix, the Chuck Woolery imitator who is on all year, "Are you getting all the Medicare benefits you're entitled to? Are you sure?"...

Re: 3 Grand Rapids stations were dead air on Sunday afternoon

Having a "body" at the studios probably gives you a speedier response for any necessary correction, but, the rules have been in place to allow empty studios and automated programming/satellite reception of content for a generation, now.

I can't believe how close I will be to the Birach studios, the day after Thanksgiving, having read of Ron's show and skills because of the reports you all have posted. Guess while I put my mother-in-law's Christmas lights up, I can tune in, somehow. That, or I can go to the Marathon at 12 Mile and T...

Re: 3 Grand Rapids stations were dead air on Sunday afternoon

Based on the entry pattern for this thread, I am making a mental note to log in on Christmas Day to see the final answer, for those concerned. While we're here, is there any way to tighten up LAV's automation during "Breakfast in the Basement," Sunday mornings? When I listened this past weekend, it ...

Re: Local Talent Axed at ESPN 96.1

The thousand-watter does feed a network, with WXYT-AM its most prominent affiliate, but you are right, the future for this offering is tenuous. Costa, at last look, still has a Facebook profile picture where he's standing in front of an ESPN 96.1 banner. Drew had announced he was done before that Tu...
