Re: Is cord-cutting (specifically OTA-only) hard for the Lansing area?

That's a lot of free TV. I could live with that. Pay TV is just bloated with trash. Same shows over and over...most days you flip through the channels and nothing strikes your fancy. Then there are all the channels you don't even watch! From St. Johns using a rotatable element ($30 eBay antenna) mou...

Re: Sirius XM...

As mentioned in another thread, they have terrible and pushy customer service. So, so many horror stories of their shady billing practices when you are trying to cancel. They definitely do NOT make it easy and don't take no for an answer. Adding insult to injury you can't cancel your membership onli...

Re: Sick of those Animal Abuse Commercials

I don't disagree there is a problem with abuse, I get that. But I don't wanna keep seeing those type of ads being crammed down my throat day in and day out. They're just trying to pull on people's heart strings showing sad looking animals and playing somber music and such. I just turn the damn chann...

Sick of those Animal Abuse Commercials

Enough already of these several minute long commercials for animal abuse and things like St. Jude.... for only pennies a day...c'mon! These ads begging for money is beyond ridiculous! Those animal abuse commercials are so annoying that I turn the channel. Who wants to see suffering animals on TV? NO...

Cozi TV is horseshit. The picture is so squished and grainy.

Duke FM's 90's country is fabulous! That's exactly what I want to hear when listening to country radio.

Re: What Are You Watching?

One day when I no longer have paid TV I will be all set with all the boxed sets I have. I many I haven't even watched or opened yet. But they'll be there when I'm ready for them.

Re: Theme Songs From TV Shows That Were Hot 100 Hits

I like the ABC sitcom from the 80's Growing Pains theme song. Not sure if it charted though. Also The A-Team, MacGyver, Airwolf, not really radio songs there but cool nonetheless.

I have to say though, the TV shows of yesterday had some great theme music. It's not really like that anymore.

Re: Am I the only one who's tired of Jimmy Fallon's format?

All late night hosts are terrible. Same as SNL....all politics jokes. Not funnny really and unoriginal. Honestly it's a turn off. Can't I watch something without having politics interjected?

Re: Spring 2019 Nielsen Audio Quarterly Report (Updated: 07-23-19)

These numbers suggest to me young and middle aged male listeners and young female listeners are abandoning FM radio in droves - or at least spending a lot less time with the medium than they once did. Most likely the case. I hardly listen to terrestrial radio anymore. Much of what is played isn't r...

Re: Why is Sanilac part of the Detroit DMA?

When I lived in southern Tuscola county at the Lapeer county line in the 80's through mid 90's, on cable we got the Flint/Saginaw stations as well as the Detroit stations. It was cool having 2 of each network.
