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

I heard an annoying Beyonce song on 98.7 yesterday that definitely didn't fit the format. A couple days earlier, heard a very uptempo Steve Winwood song (Roll With It) that doesn't belong on a station positioning itself as "relaxing." My guess is 98.7's demos are old and they are trying to experimen...

Re: Yet another jock leaves 105.1 the Bounce

I agree that the repetition on 105.1 is bothersome, but there is not a ton of airworthy material as far as "throwback" hip-hop and R&B goes that can appeal to a broad coalition of listeners. Ratings wise, 105.1 is doing very well and is outperforming every other station with a similar format in the ...

Re: The Witch Hunt is Over

Trump is taking a victory lap for the NAFTA re-write when it hasn't even been presented to Congress yet for a vote. He touts his strength yet folds like a cheap tent as soon as he meets Putin, Kim Jong Un, or any member of the Saudi royal family in person. He touts his negotiating skills, yet winds ...

Re: Socialism fails in Ann Arbor

In this process they're legally not allowed to publicly defend themselves, so you get to enjoy 50% of this story from people who most definitely have an interesting take on it. LMAO - what a load of bullshit!!! Absolutely no law is preventing ownership from speaking with the media or issuing a pres...

Re: March Nielsen numbers are out for Detroit radio

If Cumulus had a brain (they don't), they would've flipped 93.1 to Classic Rock (beating 106.7 to the punch) or to Soft AC (beating 98.7 to the punch).

Putting a LOCAL show in A.M. Drive and focusing on country hits of the 90's & early 00's also would help...BIG TIME.

Re: Nikki Haley in? Mike Pence out?

I don't know if trading Pence for Haley would be a good idea. Wouldn't switching out the Veep on the ticket reek of desperation?

People in Detroit run through stop signs all the time; the penalty shouldn't be death by excessive force.

Re: Socialism fails in Ann Arbor

There wouldn't be much stress if the business were profitable. My guess is the same outcome would've occurred regardless of whether the place was a union shop or not. I've seen plenty of businesses - big & small - with plenty of longevity that haven't turned a profit in several years. The job market...

Re: Socialism fails in Ann Arbor

Sounds like the company was failing before the workers even unionized.

It is unclear what impact, if any, the union had on wages, scheduling, fringe benefits, etc.

Re: Questionable music choices at 106.7 Fake Wheels

I wish 106.7 would stop playing that f*cking awful Night Ranger song, "Sister Christian."

That song is too sappy even for WOMC to play!!!

Re: Guilty! Yes, yes, OH YES!

A conviction of involuntary manslaughter is certainly better than nothing, but IMO he should've been convicted of second degree murder - or as an added charge - intent to do great bodily harm. Based on the video everyone has seen, Bessner had no reason at all to fire the taser. He should've simply g...

Re: WODJ Jingle Package

I thought i96 sounded best as Mainstream CHR actually. Ratings wise, they did very well with that format. I think WSNX went too vanilla after CC purchased 104.5. The execution sounded limp compared to what i96 had been doing, and in the process i96 was shifted back to Hot AC. WSNX should have stayed...

Re: WODJ Jingle Package

On YouTube, there's a video containing every cut of the package TM Century custom produced for the old i96 WVTI. Very impressive that a medium market station - an upstart, to boot - was willing to spend the coin to have a brand new jingle package custom produced. i96 is a station that should've had ...

Re: WODJ Jingle Package

B93 jingle package from late 90's can be found about one-third of the way down on page 3! :hat

(Search for "Nobody Plays More Country.")

I never remember hearing the weather sounder from the package on the air, but I could be mistaken about that.

Re: March Nielsen numbers are out for Detroit radio

Not sure one can or should call a very strong 2nd place finish a "dive."

I suspect CSX is still top three in A25 to 54 as well.

I will say mid 4's for WLLZ is within the realm of possibility next month. Would be interested in knowing how March's weekly breakouts looked.
