Didn’t Tom work in Detroit as a DJ? Perhaps, wxyz?
Yes, Tom worked at Musicradio WXYZ in the mid 1970s. There is an aircheck of his on www.mcrfb.com.

Flipping DRQ to soft AC would be wise.
Their country days have consistently failed.
Soft AC on 93.1? Back to W-Lite would be cool, which had that 10+year run starting in ‘85. Does Cumulus do Soft AC in any of the markets that they serve?

Re: The Breeze Drifts Away

Yes - too bad it’s gone. It’s funny that it still was using “new” after two years. I’m amazed at the fact that the library was so small for most of its existence. IMO, it was most interesting in the first few months. I remember hearing some softer ELO songs, and songs such as “You and Me” by Alice C...

Re: RIP 89X

Between More 94 and the recreation of the Big 8 Sound (1992-ish); and certainly before Arrow and the Jeff Zippy Crowe days there was “I-94” in early 1991, which was an early classic soul format.

Re: 98.7 The Breeze flips to all Christmas on Halloween night

You forgot to say “All New” 98.7. :rollin

For the regular format, I know that you can’t fare well in the Nielsens with a large playlist, but I’ve always been amazed that they have the same, very small playlist for a long time. Don’t similar formatted stations in the country have larger playlists?

Re: August Numbers

The Breeze is not too mellow. It's the poor song selection with lack of proper talent and imaging. There's a reason this format is in the top 5 in every market it's in, besides us. Their song selections are not garbage like ours is. Most of the playlist is fine, but things like "Rock Witcha" by Bob...

Ask Your Neighbor on WNZK

Did this 60+ year program die after Bob Allison's passing? Yes, it moved as slow as watching paint dry the last many years, but it still had a lot of heritage. I know that Rob Allessee (Bob's son) tried to keep it going for awhile.

Re: Detroit Nielsen #'s - demo ranks

Wonder how the breeze is doing.... Really seems like Entercom has abandoned this station. It sounds stale and every time I tune it its either a Prince or Michael Jackson song playing..... They need to overhaul the playlist and cut down on the repetition! Perhaps a "no repeat workday" would be in th...

Re: WOMC 90s Music - my additions

Good list, stopnswop2. The playlists are just too small at stations to expect many of these adds. I have heard a few from your list on ‘OMC: I Don’t Wanna Fight, King of Wishful Thinking. Additional appropriate ones, IMO: Lucky One - Amy Grant Pray For The Dying - Seal The World I Know - Collective ...

Can someone please tell someone over there that for many weeks now, the same jazz feeds are playing over and over most nights? I’ve heard the same Dave Schwan show about 10 times in the last month.

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

Thanks again for the help. I did another rescan (last one was done a few weeks ago), and 20.2 now shows Antenna TV.
