Re: Detroit’s Broadcasting Hotties 2019

My wife thinks Dave LewAllen is hot-hot-hot. She met him in person and said he was a hunk. She said tv doesn’t do him justice. She is a good judge of hotness.

Re: Are most sound engineers half deaf?

Just for shits and grins, I threw one of my daughter’s pop music files on the ProTools just to see the waveform. Ugh. Looks like someone drew a line with a thick magic marker. I would interject that some sound engineers are “told” how to make something sound, like a recording or broadcast signal. Mo...

Re: Hudson Tower (Building Under Construction)

It’s going to affect WDTW and WMXD on the Cadillac Tower. To what degree and how, I cannot speculate.

Re: 98.7 The Breeze on air line-up

Art Van, if that's the case, and a particular office doesn't want to hear DJs OR ADS, they may as well subscribe (for less than $20/month) to Sirius/XM's "The Bridge!" Radio is meant to be interaction between the host and the listeners, not just weather and traffic. A station with NO personality is...

Re: 98.7 The Breeze on air line-up

[quote="armchair pd" post_id=556475 time=1546613119 user_id=348] With no disrespect to any talent of any age, this isn't a personality driven format. It's a background format. As long as whoever you put on sounds pleasant, doesn't get in the way of and seems to know the music, it's fine. Do I think ...

Re: Looks like the Orbit Room is finally toast; share your memories here!

Wow! Thanks for the info, MW. I go a little further back to the Club Eastbrook days. Saw a lot of oldies groups there in the early 90s: Mitch Ryder, Three Dog Night, and others. I recall Red Hot Chili Peppers and Gin Blossoms playing there, too. Eastbrook Mall was an also-ran back then. Can’t believ...

Old WDTR Tower gone

FYI: Passed by Lawton St the other week and noticed the old WDTR tower was gone. The transmission line support was gone, too. Building is still there. Some signs are still there. That building had quite a storied history. Thought I saw a video on YouTube of someone going through it some time ago. Wa...

Re: MiniDiscs anyone?

Oddly enough, Mini-Disc was the primary audio format used at WDVD up until 2000. They had the Denon machines. And yes, TOC errors would kill the disc. However, when it DID work, MD was pretty neat and gave jocks a lot of flexibility in the studio. I think I still have a portable Sony MD around here ...

Re: AM Radio 2020

Viability and profitability. If the business model consisting of towers on large pieces of real estate, electrical usage, maintenance, insurance, licensing, et al, is justifiable, then, AM will continue to exist. If there is compelling programming, AM can be usable. Strictly speaking from an adverti...

Re: Columbus Ohio station around 1998-99

106.3 is licensed to London, OH. (Southeast of Columbus) It doesn’t cover the entire DMA sufficiently, because of lower power and lower antenna height. It was Magic 106 when i was down there for a couple of years around 2013.
