Formats during the pandemic

I’ve noticed that most top 40 stations in TC and GR are playing more recurrents from the 2000’s till now more often. Is that common across the board and on other current music formats. I assume it’s cause of the lack of newer music due to the current situations. If so wonder when we’ll start seeing ...

Re: Nielsen audio round-up - #'s published on July 21

[quote=option1 post_id=620887 time=<a href="tel:1595731436">1595731436</a> user_id=9371] Why Midwest hasn’t flipped one of their garbage frequencies and taken on KFR is baffling. Just match them song for song, lean it slightly rhythmic and KFR is done. I agree. Don't they have that CHR is GB that's...

Re: TV RF Channel Changes

I think it is stupid that WGTU and WPBN broadcast from the same tower. Why not move one of the stations to the Harietta tower so as to render the 15 kW translator unnecessary? Back in the Analog days. Wasn’t Harrietta the primary location for WPBN. Remember being able to get 7, 9, and 21 really wel...

Re: Synergy is a mess

Is this why z93 in mason county is choppy and unlistenable? As before when 92.7 was on 93.1,z93 came is clear as day. In the Ludington area, 89.1 seems to be a sloppy mess of W224CA (WKLA (AM)'s translator) and WKLA-FM. 96.3 - 92.7 = 3.6 92.7 - 3.6 = 89.1 Oddly, 99.9 (which is 96.3 + 3.6) has no iss...

Re: 102.7 wmom back on air

Went to muskegon today 102.7 surprisingly came in well till just north of muskegon and surprisingly was able to listen to them with static all through out Muskegon, went far south as Steinberg road (airport exit)and still had it tuned in but with fading and static. Wonder if they are on a sort of di...

Re: 102.7 wmom back on air

i would agree that their signal is a tad bit weaker than they were last year. I notice that they get some static inference around the m37-55 junction. Maybe something to do with there audio level but prob not. They do have better processing and listenable distance then WKLA 96.3 does but almost ever...
