Re: Schools Reopening Not A Major Covid-19 Problem

Would you rather the 400 new positives we had in July or 2,000 now? Get real. Raw numbers don't really mean a whole lot in the context of testing capacity. I'd be willing to bet the increased testing has yielded more asymptomatic cases - people that wouldn't have been tested in July. The only peopl...

Re: Who was let go?

I'm glad they added full RDS to 93.5. Now 94.5 needs full RDS again. Johny started at K100 when they fired Amy Davis last December. He pretty much started the day they fired her. It looks like he's also permanently the night host on 93.5, replacing Bill Stewart. He used to be on 105.5 until they mo...

Re: WJML

They'd have to be really stupid to enter into an LMA for a daytime only AM station, unless the FM translator comes with it. Especially a daytimer with a bad coverage area! I can barely get it in Manistee I hate to whiz on the charcoal at your cookout, but even the stations in Ludington couldn't car...

Re: Darryl Wood WLQV

Darryl Wood should be filling in for John McCullough on WDTK, as he did during John's previous medical leave. For the last 2 weeks, listeners have been treated to RERUNS of old McCullough shows...with the 2020 election looming. Instead of debate coverage, the McCullough Show last night featured the ...

Re: Ron Cameron

Mr. Positive is nothing but a laughable, shameless groupie. The very fact that he gets on the air at all just goes to show you how audience share has declined, not just with Ron's silly show, but even with Frank Beckmann and Guy Gordon.

Re: Ron Cameron

As hard as this may be to believe, I am fairly sure Ron briefly owned a radio station in Valdosta, GA. This would have been around the same time I was working in Orlando. It was one of Chuck Harder's old stations. It lasted about as long as one of Ron's imaginary restaurants.

Re: 99.3 wqan and 92.3 wbnz

It's my understanding Roy was booted from the tower at the Manistee-Benzie County line some years ago, due to nonpayment of rent, among other things. Without that site, he basically has 3 stations (on a 42 year old tower built for just one) that dump the majority of their signal right into Lake Mich...

Re: WLDR Renewal Applications

From a casual observer's point of view, Roy's plan, whatever it may be, varies from year to year, depending on with whom he is trying to seek revenge. As we all know, it always backfires, and turns into a game of "I'm rubber, you're glue..." :lol

Re: Cumulus changes

Wouldn't it make sense to sell your towers to someone who knows what they're doing and not have another WLQR 1470 mess on your hands? Plus past transmission site sales for WMAL and KABC were done as the real estate around them were worth more than the stations themselves. Have you recently visited ...

Re: WAWM 98.9 Tower Strobe Light?

The lights are likely stuck in Day mode, due to failure of the nighttime lights. When this happens, the lights typically default to Day mode.

Re: August Numbers

things like "Rock Witcha" by Bobby Brown are not AC Standards and throw the sound off completely. Wrong again. We played "Rock Witcha" on WFMK's "Lights Out" when it was a brand new song, 30+ years ago. And you couldn't get more "white" than WFMK's audience. We also played Anita Baker, Whitney, Al ...

Re: WBMI West Branch Brouhaha

WBMI sounded pretty good in the early 80s as "Stereo Rock I-105" which I believe was some sort of live/assist operation, with the daytime AM (WBMB) being live. That was a different time and place, in many ways. Later on, (90's?) and who knows how many owners later, WBMI was a decently put together O...

Just like nobody could take WTCM FM down in Traverse. Uncle Henderson went dark trying so.
That's what happens, when Boss Hogg challenges J.R. Ewing. :lol
