Re: 98.7 The Breeze (Soft AC) is here!

Well, because if he gives his name then people will realize the station is putting in zero effort by making the building's operations manager do the morning show. You might be over thinking it a bit, junior. Your average listener doesn't know Tim Roberts is the OM of a bunch of stations and doesn't...

Re: 98.7 The Breeze on air line-up

You make some excellent points Circle. The whole "Relaxing favorites at work" station is an outdated concept IMHO. Makes me wonder if radio execs have even observed an office setting in the 21st century. I'd wager the small number of office drones who listen to OTA radio listen in earbuds, because w...

Re: 98.7 The Breeze on air line-up

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 Kevin O'Niell belongs on this station? Of course. Do I think it's...

Is this the Ian Richards that was on WWCK in Flint back in the 90's. And oh...by the way...this is the 11th thread on this station.
No. Ian The Neon was British.

Re: 98.7 The Breeze just ruined itself

They likely did a music test of some kind, and the rhythmic songs tested with the demo they want as P1's.
Stop's passion is commendable, but stations don't make programming decisions based on radio forum chatter.

We get the unique 98.7 The Breeze and some people are so cynical over it because it's "just another AC station", yet they want ANOTHER classic rock station. How about instead of adding yet another classic rock station, the current one(s) are improved?
Logic isn't dead after all.

The audio on Sirius/XM sounds like shit. I can't stand it.
Some channels are better than others, but overall most of the audio sounds like it was dubbed off limewire using aol dial up 20 years ago.

Re: Morning Show Anouncement On 98.7?

I'll not argue that in the last 5 years or so, SiriusXM is getting worse with more and more talking. But I triple dog dare you to stand in a mall and ask 100 people "What would you rather hear in the morning, music or mouth?". [/quote] * Dare accepted. Then I'll got to a different mall and ask 100 d...

Re: Morning Show Anouncement On 98.7?

Isn't this a thread about a morning show? Talk about gums ( or keyboards, if you will ) babbling. I have no predictions other than someone from the market who's not currently working. Sirius is just as repetitive as OTA radio, IMHO. Especially the niche channels. Jock wise, with a few exceptions, mo...

Looks like it was a hanging: http://extratv.com/2018/12/13/new-details-revealed-following-meteorologist-jessica-starrs-suicide/ I'm not sure I'd put complete trust in RadarOnline but assuming they are right I've never pictured hanging as a way to go out. Same with jumping. They are. Very very sad.

When will we know how she took her life? There are those that call the cops on our phone when we see an emergency, and those that film it. Bet I can guess which one you are, cuz. Although never suicidal, I've dealt with depression most of my life. It can take every ounce of your energy. To those th...

48 yo geezer here. Like music of any age, there's good new stuff and awful new stuff. I like everything from Shawn Mendes and Drake to Greta Van Fleet, Chris Stapleton and Clavin Harris.

Re: 98.7 as Restaurant Music

I haven't been to any lately but I can image that once businesses discover it, they will for sure flip to it. Heck I'm even going to promote it. Maybe we can get 12 oaks Mall to switch to it instead of their Sirius XM the Blend they have on. My chiropractor also uses The Blend at their office. I'll...
