Miller is a step down from what IOT previously had in afternoons with Pyke and then Kramer, no question.

Re: 13abc, No Stonewall on FB?

Actually I didn't see any of the negative comments you would expect from the type of people who use Facebook in Toledo, unless maybe 11 removed them.

WLS-AM in Chicago, or what's left of it anyway, can't be far behind.

Re: 106.5 Toledo

"No dinosaur rock or very little pre 1992"? You know we're discussing Toledo, right? The land of "Live the lifestyle of the 80's, today!"? Unless literally every other song was Kid Rock, no one would listen. Although I still always wonder why they bothered heavily tweaking the Zone's format from alt...

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

KC has some solid young talent that has made it to the majors, they're farther along in their rebuild than the Tigers are. I'm not even sure if the Orioles are that much worse than the Tigers, but they play in a much tougher division. Boston is third in that division with virtually the same team tha...

Re: I now know your pain...

I haven't really watched WMNT since the season or two when the Lions got stuck with them as their Toledo affiliate for preseason games. Back around like 2010. They'd usually have technical difficulties for about half of the game if I remember right. Station's always been a joke.

Re: Bob & Tom done in northwest Indiana

BTW, if anyone is passing through northwest Indiana/south Chicagoland, X-Rock 103.9 is worth a listen. Plays deeper album cuts and less 80's butt rock than most classic rock stations do these days. It sounds much better than WDRV, which is a sad shell of its former self but has a stranglehold on cla...

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

Toledo is a dive, but Fifth Third Field is a very nice park. And if you don't want to pay stadium prices for food and beer there are plenty of bars and restaurants in downtown Toledo. It's possible to park free on the street for weekend games if you get there early enough.

Re: Syndication

The Simpsons episode "City of New York vs. Homer Simpson" which heavily features the World Trade Center was taken out of circulation for several years following 9/11, at the discretion of the individual stations airing the series.

Re: Bob & Tom done in northwest Indiana

The show has never done well in major markets. It lasted about three months in Detroit, for example. I have never understood how it has lasted so long, especially in smaller markets. Two guys laughing for three hours is not good radio. I don't want to call people in smaller markets hicks and rubes,...

Bob & Tom done in northwest Indiana

https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/post-tribune/ct-ptb-potempa-column-st-0613-story.html Closest thing they've had to a Chicago affiliate since their brief stint on the walking corpse of WRCX for a few months in 1998 after Mancow jumped to Q101. Good. They've always sucked and one of the guys th...

Re: 106.5 Toledo

Yeah, 10 years ago the Ticket on 1470 and Zone on 106.5 were both good stations. Typical Cume-U-Less penny pinching and ineptitude ran both into the ground. By the time they'd rejuvenated XKR a bit by bringing Michaels and Grizzly in,, they'd lost their chance to really kick IOT's ass because the Zo...

Re: 106.5 Toledo

Nah, really only the weekend stuff with Ragtime Rick and the Spanish programming is brokered anymore. The local morning weekday show is not, and of course most of the rest of the time during the week they just run FSR unless the Mud Hens, Walleye or Pistons are playing. It's not like 10-15 years ago...

Re: 106.5 Toledo

Oh yeah, Fox Sports Radio sucks, but one local show is better than 0, which is what 106.5 really has.
