Re: 95.3 Straits Country WWSS

"I like how they're keeping it local. The only radio station in the world to concentrate on the Straits and only the Straits." Hmmm. Really? And they play spots from Newberry and The Soo (add-ins by the way). Do their jocks talk about the Straits? Oh, that's right. They don't have any local jocks. A...

When carted music first started for JML, they bought 2 stereo playback ITC's (no stereo record decks). All of the music (45's...

Re: Lansing Power Outage

It was meant to be tongue in cheek. By the number of responses for 2 days it seemed most got it. It seems every time something like this happens (earthquake, super thunderstorm, big snowstorm, power outage all on the weekend) someone always asks "how did radio do". The answer to that is dependent up...

They touted "you can see minute by minute of how your audience was using your station". They later told us that was not an accurate representation of what PPM could d...
