Re: Format change at 101.5 Manistee (recreation of lost thread)

I've been monitoring the new 101.5 overnights over the past couple of days and have to say I think they're really on to something. My audiophile ears give two thumbs up to the processing they're using, and the playlist is an engaging mix of mostly '80s hits with some older and more modern material t...

Re: Format change at 101.5 Manistee (recreation of lost thread)

I thought WMTE did well with the format used under thr Coast moniker. At least thats when i enjoyed it most. Stopped listening shortly after it was switched back to complete satellite-fed. But as i said, i do enjoy the format now. A very nice and broad mix I fully agree. Coast FM did make something...

Re: Format change at 101.5 Manistee (recreation of lost thread)

I think WHMI in Howell may have them beat in that regard. Their definition of "classic hits" includes "Happy" by Pharrell Williams, which came out in 2013. WHMI knows better than to follow the unwritten rules of the unseen "radio format police". As for WMTE, I wish them luck, but everyone, and do m...

Re: Things happening in Escanaba

Mike, best of luck with your new gig! These are two of my hometown stations. I've been a listener since the Fun 104 days, and am listening to WDBC right now from Manistee. About the only radical change that ever took place at these stations in my listening era was WFNN changing calls to WYKX and fli...

Re: Old School 7&4, 29&8, WFRV/WJMN, WLUK

One has to wonder why WFRV / WJMN didn't use electronics for everything -- not just promos and news? By using slides for IDs and bulletins, it's just like a 2015 Chevy Impala having a body of the 1972 model. I also noticed that one of the pics from WLUK's newscasts had "Pre-Recorded" superimposed o...

Re: Old School 7&4, 29&8, WFRV/WJMN, WLUK

Great finds, WC8KCY! I really liked 7&4's news set from the 1970s. Those shapes on the wall were a little weird, though. Awesome that you posted Don Melvoin and his "Deputy Don" and "Count Zappula" personas. Truly a great man who became a local legend. Same with the late, great Dave Walker. 7&4 had...

WPBN/WTOM: I wonder if those are old ID slides on the monitors in the third frame. http://i1363.photobucket.com/albums/r705/ggroleau/WPBN%20WTOM/WPBN%201954%20ID%20Slide_zpsmsckc2wm.jpg http://i1363.photobucket.com/albums/r705/ggroleau/WPBN%20WTOM/WPBN%20News%20Set%201960s_zpsp5a8j5xk.jpg http://i13...
