Re: Robert Liggett passes...

Harpers's 99.5 WDTX sounded quite similar to Liggett's CHR format on WABX. Both focused on the "new music" approach, mixing Current Hits with Alternative.

Re: Robert Liggett passes...

Didn’t Jim Harper and Lorraine Golden at some point have ownership of 99.5 before Mr. Liggett ? It was actually afterward. Harper and Golden's group bought 99.5 from Liggett around 1986 and re-launched it as WDTX. I did not expect to hear the news about Bob. The last time I saw him was a couple of ...

This breaks a long-standing precedent. Sounds like a clear-cut case.

Re: Steak and Shake gets shut down in Toledo

Doesn't really matter if the Health Department gives 'em a clean slate. It's out there, and stuff like that tends to stick in people's minds. I assume these are franchise operations, possibly the same ownership. Corporate may not be inclined to renew these franchise agreements, or they may award the...

Re: Robert Liggett passes...

Didn't he also run 96.1 WHNN and the short-lived "Class FM" WCLS in Detroit? He had quite the Adult Contemporary fiefdom in Michigan in the mid-'80s. Bob bought WABX in 1983 to make an entry into the Detroit market. He initially brought in the late Paul Christy to program a CHR format, replacing th...

Guess that tops licking the ice cream (although I really don't want that kind of topping on my ice cream).

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

Makes me think back to when I was 20 and received a "promotion" to operations manager of an automated AM station. There was no pay increase involved (although it did get me off the graveyard shift on the sister FM, which I was quite happy about). OM was a nice-sounding, although it didn't take to re...

Re: Fm translators

I have no issue with Smile's programming. Their personalities are good, and they certainly are not cookie-cutter musically. They have a much bigger gold library than you'll find on K-Love, FLR, etc. I'd almost call them a CCM version of "Jack." I just don't understand the need for multiple signals ...
