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

If Cumulus is selling their stations how do the Lions and MSU Football/Basketball broadcast rights work out? Would those be sold along with one or more of the stations?

Re: 93.1 DRQ

93.1 flipping to sports would be AMAZING! However, it must have at least these three things to be successful . . .

1. A live and local morning drive
2. No Ryan Ermani hosting a weekday show
3. Some fresh on-air talent that aren't just rehashes of the past

Will the Ann Arbor cluster be sold with Detroit or is Cume-less planning to hold onto those stations?

Re: iFart HD radio changes in Detroit

Why are we blaming Doug for the WLLZ playlist when Casey is the PD and corporate makes them use a premium choice playlist?

Re: My 2 Cents on WLLZ

Is Fake Wheelz widening their playlist beyond what corporate approves because the last few days I have heard several songs in the mix that they haven't played previously. Also, it wasn't a deep track weekend to my knowledge. Some of the songs in the mix include . . . War Pigs - Black Sabbath Tom Saw...

Re: WCSX

How long has WCSX been playing Collective Soul, Candlebox, and Red Hot Chilli Peppers? They played all three of those artists today. Are they trying to tweak their imaging towards more of what WLLZ is playing? If so, is that a big mistake on their part?

Re: WCSX

So if WCSX is willing to dip into the 1990's with Smashing Pumpkins and artists of that sound, why are they unwilling to play Soundgarden, Audioslave, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Pantera and some of the harder-edged feel that would seemingly fit better than Billy Corgan-type rock.

Re: 93.1 Gnash FM is now the lowest rated station in Detroit

If Cumulus is bent on keeping it country why not follow suit with what iHeart did and bring back W4 Country. Granted, it would be on a different frequency, and would be Fake W4 just as WLLZ is Fake Wheelz, but the heritage branding can't be as worthless as the Nash brand is and has been. Branding/Na...

Re: WLLZ Deep Cut Saturday

So Podell was asking for suggestions of deep tracks to play on the WLLZ Facebook page. I doubt he plays 99% of the ones he gets as the songs aren't corporate approved, consultants haven't checked with the focus group, yada-yada-yada. But I suggested a list of deep cuts for him anyways . . . Albatros...

Others they played today that I heard while listening on and off . . .

She Sells Sanctuary by the Cult
Everything About You by Ugly Kid Joe
Last Child by Aerosmith
The Jack by AC/DC
Cumbersome by Seven Mary Three (maybe this one is in their regular rotation and I just miss it)

Re: I've only listened to WOMC for 15 minutes today, yet...

I'm still confused about the one poster that claimed they were playing large amounts of 60s music just a month ago... I never heard and of it. Yeah, it turns out I had on the HD2 Station that weekend and didn't realize it was the HD2 channel for the block for the block of time I was listening. The ...

Re: Mike Duggan files for divorce

For a top 20 TV market, do we have THE WORST investigative journalism, because it sure seems like it. Ever since Fox 2 gutted their Problem Solvers division and Steve Wilson left Channel 7 our investigative journalism has been pathetic in this town. In-fact, save for ML Elrick at that Detroit News a...
