Not much of a difference from previous from what I can tell. Except for the opening. I like that.
Thinking it’s a Sinclair mandated thing given the “UpNorth Live” at their 7&4 stations in Traverse City.

Re: Nomination: lovinlife101

I didn't prevent anyone from working. The cops told the driver of the scab bus to leave. They obviously didn't believe I had committed theft, or they would have charged me with theft. If you want to slander me you ought to do it out in the open instead of hiding out on this board. LL will never do ...

Re: Investigative Journalism is dead

Whatever happened to investigative journalism in the Flint-Tri Cities market? ABC 12 used to have an I-Team. Jim Kiertzner went after corruption at city hall. Now, no one at any of the stations is doing any real investigations. They've replaced real journalism with Gray's Investigate TV national re...

Re: One person doing news and weather in market 12

Ah, the duopoly is owned by Meredith. About the only owner out there more incompetent than Scripps and Tegna. That speaks volumes! As someone who grew up watching WNEM TV5 News, I can truly say I wish Meredith would get out of the broadcasting business. Watching what happened to their news operatio...

Re: JIM PRICE STINKS!!!

Now that the Tigers season is (mercifully) over, I'd like to wrap this up for the winter. Over the past decade, each season Price has been worst than the previous season. One of the more annoying things to me this year was that he added "He's looking for a cookie" to his arsenal of crap phrases. Ye...

Is Tim Brandow related to Jay Brandow? I know John Brandow from some Continuing Education dinners. Jay's cousin as I recall. Had a great chat about pop groups and songs.

Re: LAV who?

It’s pretty apparent that the Steve Gorman show (from Westwood One, a division of Cumulus) is being forced by Cumulus corporate onto every classic rock station they have. They dropped the popular Alice Cooper show on Saginaw’s Wheelz 104.5 for this. Haven’t listened to Gorman but Alice had some inte...

Re: And The Employee of the Month Is --

He’s right. My folks bought me a car jack from there to jack up my Camaro when I store it in the winter time. I used it twice a year and it lasted about 3 years before the fluid leaked out of it and it became inoperable. My dad bought a battery saver last winter for one of his vehicles and it shorte...

I love 80s music. I find the Cars, however, annoying and unlistenable. Eddie Money I could listen to all day.
Exactly the opposite for me as I can’t change the station fast enough when Eddie Money comes on. Really burnt out on his music from radio overplay. Most Cars tunes I’ll listen to
