Re: The WLLZ Fix List.

The station was doing a live remote late Sunday morning for a "Lions tailgate" and wanted to play music, I guess.

Are you sure about Saturday morning?

Re: 930/102.7 in Battle Creek flips to Classic Hits

You're right, Michigan Media. Spring book ratings were excellent for 930 / 102.7. I had no idea the ratings were that strong (although, it *does* make sense that the station attracted a sizable audience given the fact Calhoun County is ~11% African American and lacks R&B music elsewhere on the FM di...

Trump doesn't understand monetary policy - and it's frightening

Trump's advocacy for negative central bank (i.e. federal reserve bank) interest rates in the United States is very troubling to me. I am worried about a scenario where Trump is reelected, his ego swells to unforeseen levels (even for him), he chooses to fire the Fed Chairman, has his decision upheld...

Re: John Bolton out

Does Trump not pay any fucking attention to his cabinet appointees' political beliefs before making said appointment?

Bolton has always been hawkish. Did Trump suddenly have an epiphany?

Maryland lost to Temple today; saw that.

1. I suppose I technically run the DBR.
2. As far as PBR is concerned, I have never drunk a can of that skunky piss water in my life. :)

His freedom dividend sounds a lot like something that already exists - the Earned Income Tax Credit.

Is Mr. Yang unfamiliar with the EITC?

Re: Democratic Debates thread

I agree with you, bmw.

Biden is the placeholder candidate. He's the candidate many Dem primary voters say they support only because they haven't made up their mind as to who they will actually support. As we enter 2020, his numbers will sink.

This is great reporting by the Detroit Free Press

Their reporting of Ford vehicle maladies in recent weeks has been terrific, and the bombshell article about widespread, severe defects in 2020 Ford Explorers is definitely an attention grabber! https://www.freep.com/story/money/cars/ford/2019/09/13/ford-2020-explorer-lincoln-aviator-delivery/2292795...

August Nielsen Audio #'s for Grand Rapids (Ages 12+

GRR is a continuously measured market now, which means statistically validated ratings results are now issued monthly as opposed to quarterly. https://ratings.radio-online.com/content/arb127 Notes: - WTNR is still identified as "AAA." Who the hell knows if these results are for 94.5 MHz or 107.3. MH...

Low profile tires are terrible! Buy a pair of winter tires on steel rims.
Low profile tires definitely shouldn't be on the road in winter driving conditions. Absolutely agree!

930/102.7 in Battle Creek flips to Classic Hits

Potentially a good move; I thought 104.9 should've adopted this format as opposed to Alternative. Hopefully Midwest does the format justice in Battle Creek unlike their piss poor attempt at Classic HIts in Lansing @ 92.9 FM.
