Re: Dave and Chuck The Freak

I'm in the demo, albeit at the upper end of it, and have never listened once.
I was a Stern fan, but have only listened a handful of times since he moved to sat radio.

Re: 98.7 The Breeze: Announcers, Jingles, DJ'S, Morning Show, etc. Discussion

Wasn't Chadd on Mojo in the Morning as a Producer and then 106.7 the Fox after that or am I thinking of a different Chadd? Also can we please get Chris or Kevin on during the afternoon drive? It seems asinine to me to have two of the most successful AC DJ's in this town working weekends and not ful...

Re: Cumulus stunner - two heritage Hot AC stations in major markets SOLD (note: WDVD not involved)

The Cumulus of today is trying to undo the sins of Lew and John Dickey and find stable footing financially. The biggest sins were (outside of their purchase of WestwoodOne) their merger with Citadel and the “Nash” concept. John Dickey talked up Nash to the point of annoyance using weasel words like...

Re: WOMC adding 90s music

I'm 27. They want people my age, but that's just not realistic in 2019. Dead wrong junior. I know lots of teens and 20 something's who love 80's and even 70's music from A-ha to fleetwood Mac and especially Queen thanks to Bohemian Rhapsody. 80's & 90's music is big business in pop culture now, fro...

Re: Cumulus stunner - two heritage Hot AC stations in major markets SOLD (note: WDVD not involved)

When I caught this story, my first thought was 'Well, is Detroit in the crosshairs?" So I'm glad MW brought it up; it's compelling and relevant to this market. Interesting they're holding onto to WABC as of now. Would they keep WJR, which makes a ton of cash for the company, as a stand alone and spi...

Re: Is Detroit Radio Boring or What?

Like most things, boring is subjective. What makes radio exciting to you? This Breeze dreck you all think is the greatest bores me to death, and I honestly forget they exist most days. I will say Detroit is one of the better markets IMHO. New York, LA and Chicago, with the exception of a station or ...

Respectfully, how 'bout taking your personal convo's to this really netro thing available right here on the good ole buzzboard called the dm's.
These topics grow to 15 threads of you basically greeting each other.
Frankly who cares?

Re: Who's In-charge At Entercom

Sometime Saturday afternoon, WOMC finally cleaned up its muddy-as-hell audio. Station sounds normal again. Historically their audio has always blown. For 190,000 they sound like a rimshot signal at times, very thin and no 'punch". It's been downright unlistenable lately. I have not listened this we...

Re: Groundhog Day 2019: Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow.

Most important of all: Did 'Cowboy' see his shadow? Do we get 6 more weeks of his insipid ramblings?
I'd rather have the 6 more weeks of winter.

Re: Fall 2018 Nielsen Audio Quarterly Report ANN ARBOR

As someone who lived in rural Washtenaw Co. for years, I'll pass along that outside of W4, everyone listens to Detroit radio. The top 3 stations numbers reflect A2/Ypsi proper listening habits. Off campus, different story. Ironic that one of the most irrelevant stations in Detroit is the only one th...

We can always hope.

Jim is an excellent broadcaster. My favorite gig of his was PM drive on WNIC.
