Re: Andy Stuart out?

Well... if this is 100% true then I am not surprised. The Toledo Cluster looks awful, XKR,RQN,and K 100 are fine, but the rest of is an epic mess. 105.5 at a 1 share, 106.5 and 100.7 are not going to be bread winners but my god there pathetic.

Re: Fred Heumann out

Fred is extremely talented, and deserves better treatment than this. At a minimum, he belongs back in Detroit, or in some other major market. Let the CMU grads cut their teeth in bush-league markets like Lansing.

Re: WWJ signal problems?

There's no STA currently on file for WWJ to operate at reduced power. For a site that's only 20 or so years old, there sure do seem to be a lot of recurring issues there.

Dudley probably built it to sell it. Just as he has before.

Why was the Drew & Mike Show suddenly cut back to Sundays only, and a nearly pre-dawn start time? WTF?

Re: WPON WCXI Updates - 2019

When I worked at 'PON, we had a very specific contract that had to be signed to anyone that wanted to purchase time after pattern change. Weekends in the winter were a bitch, since we had ethnic programs that ran past 5:00pm. I used to hear "YOU LEAVE F***ING POWER UP" on a regular basis. WPON shou...

Re: WPON WCXI Updates - 2019

In my opinion, these piece of shit stations will never make it to the air so long as they remain under their current ownership. I've been saying that for over five years straight now! My guess is Mr. Birach is trying to kick the can down the road as far as possible in hopes of finding a buyer. He l...

Re: Lew Dickey UPDATE

I would enjoy seeing what MW thinks of Lew's latest caper. Will Lew still be able to close the deal? Will SONG hit 400 bucks a share? Stay tuned. :rollin

Re: Which Metro Detroit cities are declining and which are improving?

Hazel Park was a cheaper, working class town that now has a growing arts and culinary scene spilling over from Ferndale that has repurposed old buildings and brought higher education and income levels into the city. Ferndale itself continues to grow and change into a more modern and more expensive ...

If you are Beaver, I loved when he would make appearances on the show. Rudy was the punching bag but he took it well.

I miss that show.
Nope. I am an entire lifetime older than Beaver.

Re: Which Metro Detroit cities are declining and which are improving?

I forgot to name one for my improving column: Clawson. Here's another one for my declining column: Canton. Hell, I'll add Sterling Heights to the "declining" list, too! South end of the city is looking a little rough. Van Dyke thoroughfare isn't what it used to be, and if Lakeside Mall becomes the ...

Re: Kevin Sanderson

I think he was on WDTK 1400 as well. Any updates on Kevin? I am concerned, because it has been quite awhile now, and that's not good. Also, to be honest, the fill-in news & traffic voices that sound like cast members from "The Muppets" are getting more painful to listen to with each passing day. If...

Re: Listeners are abandoning local radio in droves in the Lansing market

The Lansing radio market is no longer relevant. The days of Tim, Rich, etc.. with something interesting to say is gone. There is nothing that distinguishes Lansing from Sirius. Everything is voicetracked, sometimes they even have the wrong days voicetrack airing. The TV stations are the only place ...
