Re: WKBD screwed up... BAAAAD

Back in 94 I was watching a summer rerun of Murder, She Wrote. At 10:37 PM the CBS bug disappeared from the screen for 23 seconds! I immediately flooded the CBS switchboard looking for answers but got nothing. I can only imagine the heads that rolled over that debacle. That's because the lines were...

Re: WKBD screwed up... BAAAAD

Wonder which episode didn't air...the one where kevin is a dolt or the other 300 where Kevin is a dolt The one where Kevin is a dolt and his wife is all smug and superior about it . Wait... is she acting or not? I have heard that is NOT an act. Of course, Idk her personally, so I can't say.

Re: Source: Cumulus Detroit is for sale...

Well, if the rumor has any validity, my guess is we'll be seeing some action in either Seattle, Denver, Miami, Detroit or Minneapolis before year's end. I agree that there would be no benefit to moving WLLZ back to 98.7 at The Breeze's expense. Mass confusion would ensue. Having 98.7 The Breeze clo...

It's not the future I weep for.

Re: Detroit Radio Ratings 9-4-2019

I've all but given up hope for terrestrial FM from Detroit. WWJ is about it. Usually it's 103.9 The Fox, Q106 or WMMQ. WHMI also as it's local. Explain this to me. How does a classic rock station, one that recently revived its calls and branding from a station that played rock for 15 years, do an A-...

Re: It's official - 105.9 Kiss is now owned by Beasley

I've always preferred Kiss to Mix. That said, I would hate to see Hughley's show disappear (it's one of few shows I can listen to in the afternoon outside of WWJ). I have to believe the overlap between 105.1 and 105.9 will be too often and changes will be made. I know ratings and revenue come into p...

Re: Best U.S. president of all time

Carter's problem was that he was just too good of a person. Gave people the benefit of the doubt. Tried to do the right thing. Those things have no place in American politics or society. Give him credit for trying, but he was not a very good president. Good man, good human being, but bad president. ...

Re: AAA - can it still work in Detroit?

t surprises me that a Triple A Format Like WXRT or even Ann Arbor’s 107 One gets so much negative post on here considering there are some many liberals on this site one would think this format would win hands down. Jeff - take your meds. There have been very few negative posts about XRT or 107 One ...

Re: AAA - can it still work in Detroit?

How does one categorize or fall into AAA? I thought it was largely singer-songwriter, heavily acoustic. It just sounds like a vaguely worded format so how much subgenre variety should such a station play? While I dig select tracks, I always called it the "too hip for the room" format. Works WELL in...

Re: Classic Soul 105.1/The Groove

I certainly remember that happening. I had really been digging the station since it went on the air. It was always set on my stereo. I'm not sure what it was that attracted me more to 105.1 than 89x or 96.3. I had sent in for a couple of stickers, and they sent me the window clings, a shirt and that...

It’s mostly light crap. The new artists they play are too mellow and lame.
Okay, good...I feel like my opinion above is validated. It IS too light.
