Re: WOMC adding 90s music

It's not supposed to be an all 80s weekend, they call it "Totally 80s weekend".
Whomever is responsible for the name must've flunked sixth grade English. Totally means completely or absolutely.

Re: Are 50KW Clear Channel Stations in Jeopardy?

I’ve heard some amazing sounding AM in my life. It’s my opinion that the current struggle is imposed by manufacturers and the FCC, and to a lesser degree, some awful programming decisions. There are some wonderful wideband AM & stereo AM examples to be found on YouTube. A fella in New Jersey has ma...

Re: 2019 March Madness

Duke looks beatable after today's performance. One extra rebound for UCF on the defensive end of the floor in the game's final minute, and they likely would've won. A missed dunk in the final two minutes also hurt UCF greatly. UCF still damn near scored a game winning tip-in. An extremely heartbreak...

Re: WOMC adding 90s music

I heard "Ordinary World" (great song, btw) by Duran Duran yesterday.

I want to say that one came out in '93 or '94. Never mind the fact it's supposed to be an all-80s weekend.

Do they have some $9 an hour shlub scheduling the music over there?

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

Scores of iFart Classic Rock stations play that Simple Minds song for some reason.

There may be some select markets where that song works, but Detroit sure as hell ain't one of them. Completely agree with you on this one, Steve.

That's an interesting academic research article. I appreciate you sharing it. 8o

I learned a new term - "sockpuppet" !

It is good to know even scholars use the word "troll" to describe disruptive and disrespectful online chatting behavior. :)

NS8401 - your feedback has merit, and I have to admit, I was flat footed.

Yesterday, I banished one poster for using extremely insensitive language.

I will be watching posting behavior more closely going forward.

Hey - they're playing "Simple Man" by Skynyrd! :8)

Perhaps there is still a glimmer of hope for this radio station after all.

Kudos to them for playing that song this morning!

This must be their answer to getting their butts handed to them by WSNX?

I would be remiss if I did not add - WGRD's playlist sucks ass.

The fact that you're admin here, dealing with "cowboys" and other multiple account owners and believe that the the comments at WLLZ were anything beyond one or two trolls gives me pause. You actually think 1 or 2 people set up 20+ different Facebook accounts each for the sole purpose of trolling a ...

Re: 98.7 The Breeze just ruined itself with new Fresh / RnB playlist

WISX in Philly flipped to Soft AC at about the same time (if not exactly the same day) as 98.7 Detroit.

Look at how much more quickly their ratings have risen vs. 98.7's:

WISX-FM 2.5 3.0 4.4 4.8

The 4.8 share is for the most recent ratings survey period.

Frank Sinatra. LOL

I agree with you 100% about Sinatra being overrated as a singer. His vocal range was pretty darn limited. And he primarily sang other people's songs.

BTW, the comments I quoted were on 106.7's FB page, not the comments section of the contest page.

All of the comments I quoted are still there.

Re: UM study: Auto insurance unaffordable in 97% of Michigan ZIP codes

I can understand - to a degree - the sky high rates in the Detroit city limits. I'm not saying those rates are acceptable; they are probably 3x what they should be. Great post, Force. Thank you for sharing! (Even better - the author of the piece is Chad Livengood, who is one of the better press repo...
