Re: 101.3 The Brew

While driving out of GR this afternoon, GRD played Jimi Hendrix’s Purple Haze. WTF are they playing a 50 year old classic rock song? So out of place...

Re: Could the radio DJ be gone someday?

It’s funny - I’ve went back to my old job and am driving a company vehicle (with just AM/FM) versus my own vehicles with SiriusXM. Wife also had to drive a loaner vehicle from the dealership for a week with the same set up. We were both saying last week how much we missed XM during that period becau...

Re: Nexstar in Flap With DIRECTV and AT&T-UVerse

How did TV stations who get their licenses from the FCC get to charge cable, streaming or satellite services for carrying their signal when anyone in the stations broadcast radius can get it over the air with an antenna? Are the rebroadcast entities inserting their own commercials? The local TV sta...

Didn't he also run 96.1 WHNN and the short-lived "Class FM" WCLS in Detroit?
Yes he owned WHNN when they were the number 1 rated station in the Tri City market playing AOR in the late 70’s / early 80’s - and flipped it to AC, making a lot of folks there angry at the time...

Re: They cannot fill this position in Lansing...

I forgot that Terry Stevens was Brand Manager for the whole cluster. He did one helluva job (I mean that seriously, not sarcastically) at Rock 94.7 in Wausau. He's applied the same musical formula to Q106, and the station sounds absolutely great right now. 1000x better than WGRD. A lot of the stale...

Re: 101.3 The Brew

Spent this week in GR for work and going back tomorrow. Listened to LAV, GRD and the Brew. Despite the Brews slogan of something like “everything that rocks”, I’ve never heard a worse sounding rock station in my life. I literally heard on Thursday afternoon Marilyn Manson’s “Sweet dreams are made of...

You do realize that if Troopers F up short of firing, they get sent down / transferred to Detroit quite often?

What a blast from the past!

I’m thinking the station owners didn’t like spending money, based on their graphics package?

Re: Worst Cars Ever Made

I hate to admit it but I owned a 2003 Pontiac Aztek. My Silverado was starting to nickel and dime me and this was around the time that gas first hit $4 a gallon. It was actually a comfortable driving and riding vehicle (my wife liked driving it too) but the one I owned was a lemon. When it was assem...

Re: TV Weatherman calls out jive alerts, Sinclair fires him

We sure have started seeing the Sinclair effect in Traverse City. Our newscast last night after the date was nothing but National propaganda pieces. They spent more time on Trump's reaction than they did on the debate. They also have some national feed about crisis at the border. It's sensationalis...

Two can play at this game - Why are tax cuts for the rich AKA trickle down economics the rights sacred cow? It’s been proven over and over it does NOTHING to stimulate the economy The abortion debate that the right is ramping up right now is being being played out just before the 2020 election to di...

Re: Why does the left view abortion as such a sacred right?

I genuinely don’t get why the Neo conservatives insist on butting into a woman’s decision on this regardless. It doesn’t matter if you are for or against - the government needs to keep their nose out of a woman’s right to choose on this subject.

Re: Sarah Sanders is Done

Good bye and good riddance. Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out the door.

Good luck on trying to find another job since you have zero credibility. Oh wait - that qualifies her to be a contributor to Faux News
