Re: Would this be a good move for 98.7?

I’d love to see a format that picked up where WHYT was with their ‘Channel X’ format in 1994 and included music along those lines to 2003 or so. Bring back Greg St. James or Scott Vertical to hold morning drive, with a music intensive format the rest of the day.

Re: No More Jingles on 70'son7 SXM

Wow...IMO the station continues to be a train wreck. No jingles, very little production, and I feel that I’m hearing the same 200 songs over and over.

Re: No More Jingles on 70'son7 SXM

I listened further, and fully realized how bad it sounds now. I guess the guy doing the liners must have done it very cheaply. Without the fun elements, I would rather listen to a 70s station on Pandora.

Re: No More Jingles on 70'son7 SXM

Did someone forget to pay the jingle bill? Lol

IMO, it sounds sleepy and cheap without them. What are they thinking? Plus Magic Matt sounds like he is doing his drops from a cell phone.

Re: Brandon Roux can't forecast...

To Brandon’s credit, NOAA was calling for the winds to slowly decrease from this morning, but for gusts still in the 20s mph range late in the afternoon. The winds calmed at a quicker rate than expected.

In Northville this afternoon, it was mostly cloudy.

Windier than predictions?

Just like the last few days, Local 4 predicted wind gusts much lower than what’s out there. I see even NOAA is underestimating. For today, I’m seeing predictions of 20-30mph gusts. Oakland County just reported a 46 mph gust. To the weather experts on this site, am I the only one noticing this? I’m s...

Re: 10”?

So, as of 8:45pm, TWC shows 1-3” predicted for tonight (for Novi)....down from 5-8” earlier.

Then switched back to 3-5” a few minutes later.

Re: WRIF 50 year b-day?

In 1976 or so, WRIF was even playing a bit of Stevie Wonder, and Earth, Wind & Fire from their albums at the time. The playlists reported on Radio and Records showed this. Interesting....

10”?

Andrew Humphrey’s map at 6:00 showed 10” of snow for parts of SE Michigan. Yet, we only have a Winter Weather Advisory. Do you think that this is typical weathercaster hype?

WGPR HD2

I’m assuming that this is recent? The music so far resembles the old WGPR.

On a separate note, who runs this station these days?

Re: Ben Bailey cannot forecast worth a shit!!!

It’ll be interesting to see what happens with the weather this weekend and early next week, as the next polar vortex has been predicted. Some models show lows in the -9° range early next week. A few weeks back, the Weather Channel predicted February to be above normal in temps, and March to be much ...

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...
