Re: What Will Be The Next Format Change In Detroit?

W4 has been in Ann Arbor for nearly 20 years. What would be the point in changing the call letters??? W4 was a brand in Detroit for 20 years and was around longer and sooner than Wheelz was. So there is still some brand ID with W4. Also, if they move Bubba over from Ann Arbor it will finally Cumulu...

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

What befuddles me about iHate is that they are willing to bring back heritage branding and calls on a dial that Wheelz and WLLZ were never not. Yet, when they tried to take on WYCD with the country format they refused to bring back W4 and WWWW-FM and instead opted for a rock station branding in the ...

Re: WOMC Aircheck - 1995

Somewhere on my CPU at home I have the entire iconic WOMC Overture jingle package. I will try and upload them on Sound Cloud and share them with Motor CIty Radio Flashback.

Re: 106.7 Detroit is identical to 105.7 Columbus

Listening to this station I can't but think it is just 106.7 the Drive (as MW mentioned prior) with better on-air talent and a live + local presence all day.

Even going back and looking on Internet Archive of a prior Drive playlist seems very similar.

Re: With Podell unexpectedly moving to 106.7, who will take over PM Drive at 93.1?!?!

If they want to keep the format country why not rebrand the station and bring Bubba over from W4 in Ann Arbor to do mornings and bring in someone like a Mike Scott, Rene Vitale, Lisa Jesswin, Tom Baker to do the afternoon drive shift? 93.1 W4 Country? What the heck, you've got 106.7 Detroit's Wheels...

I've been watching the WLLZ playlist and listening on and off and haven't heard a single song by Seger.

Are the calls for this station WLLZ-FM or WDTW-FM?

Is Steve Black a full time employee of Beasly Media at WRIF? Do weekend jocks typically have contracts with non-compete clauses in them? If not, Black would be an excellent addition to the station.

Re: 106.7 to flip shortly, RIP FAULT

I remember WLLZ as a kid, so this is a semi-cool format flip. The best thing about it is that, shockingly, they will be live and local all day long. When's the last time iHeart flipped a station and went all live and local with their air-staff? They certainly haven't done it around here. Hopefully C...

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

GNASH-FM is toast sooner or later. iHeart should have waited for GNash to flip and then gotten the WWWW-FM calls from Cume-less. Whatever, 106.7 the Fox should have been W4 Country too but they screwed that one up as well.

It should have been W4 Country instead of Wheelz, but whatever.

Re: Fault 106.7 appears to have one foot in the grave

A trade web site is reporting iFart has registered multiple domains for WDTW-FM containing "Wheelz" or "Wheels" in the name. Hopefully, attempt number three at Classic Rock will be much better than the previous two, although I must acknowledge "The D" was fairly successful for a time. Then, nasally...

Re: Fault 106.7 appears to have one foot in the grave

If GNASH were to be on its way out the door would it make more sense for iHateLocalRadio to flip the station country or classic rock again? Obviously I have beaten a dead horse, but if iHate were to flip it country again they should make every attempt to bring back W4 Country to 106.7. Would Cume-le...

Re: WOMC adding 90s music

Tim Roberts DO NOT TOUCH THE PLAYLIST, IT'S AWESOME! Leave the Motown, 60's and 70's music in please. I have listened all day and I feel like I've flashed back to the year 2000 when it was Oldies 104.3 with Dick Purtain, Tom Ryan and Gary Berkowitz programming. Honestly, if WOMC ditched the "All New...
