Re: Morning Show Anouncement On 98.7?

The audio on Sirius/XM sounds like shit. I can't stand it. As for The Breeze, some of us worked in AC radio when AC was still AC... long before it was invaded by Pink or Katy Perry, pseudo rap music, or EDM. Some of these songs/artists have not been on-air for years. If some of you rubes out there d...

Re: ENTERCOM STATIONS OFF THE AIR !

This catastrophic failure had nothing to do with transmitters. It most likely had something to do with either a power failure at the studios (one of the risks of putting all stations under one roof) or the flimsy STL. This may be "old school" but MICROWAVE (even with multiple hops) beats bouncing fr...

I'll venture a guess...no generator at the old Panasonic building?

Re: 98.7 Song Requests

Alabama, Southern Pacific, Juice Newton, Ronnie Milsap, Desert Rose Band, Crystal Gayle (and a couple others I'm probably forgetting) all crossed over to AC. Where I'm on the fence with The Breeze is over Carpenters, Neil Diamond, and John Denver. At WFMK, research told us to jettison that stuff in ...

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

My God, why must we always dredge up the same 'ol recycled talent in this market?!!!! Eddie Rogers (WLTI) would be a good fit, but he has a rather lucrative gig at Ford these days. Harper, and a cackling female sidekick? No thanks!

Re: 98.7 Song Requests

I thought I did hear "I dont want to live without you" and " At This Moment" a few days ago. I did hear "Silent Running" played over the digital music service at Kroger... Foreigner's "Inside Information" album was an AC staple in 1988. It's a bit uptempo, but The Breeze could probably get away wit...

Re: 98.7 Song Requests

I absolutely DO NOT want to hear whiny bands like Train, Creed, or Five For Fighting on this station. That kind of mindless pablum was basically the turning point where AC evolved into the crap show that it is today. :x :x :x

Re: 98.7 Song Requests

I pulled out the playlist we used at WFMK 30+ years ago. Here's a few that seem to be missing from The Breeze: Mike & the Mechanics "Silent Running" and "Taken In" Dan Fogelberg "Missing You" and "Language of Love" Alan Parsons Project "Prime Time" and "Eye In the Sky" Little River Band "We Two" For...

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: 98.7 The Breeze (Soft AC) is here!

Doubt we'll hear talent before 2019, but Kevin and Edmonds are no brainers. Delilah tho? NO Delilah would be a trainwreck. For godsakes, keep it local. During my two tours of duty through WFMK, from 7PM to 12M we had "Lights Out" hosted by Jan Russo. Something like that would be amazing, especially...

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

The recent hires at AMP should have been reassigned to other positions in the cluster. For example, there's nothing they can do in the WWJ newsroom? There's certainly some dead wood that could be weeded out there. If one of them has a Country background, how about WYCD? 97.1 The Ticket? Thinking bac...

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

I can't, for the life of me, think of a single reason why anyone would want to purposefully insert themselves into the economic quagmire that is Manistee. Hell, even Duluth would be less cold and inhospitable.
