Re: Cool FM 95.1 and 100.7

Obviously, I am in the minority here, but I actually enjoy the Can-Con on Cool-FM. I enjoyed it more on K106.3 Sarnia, until the co-channel jesus freak translator came along, making clear reception impossible.

Re: 106.7 Detroit is identical to 105.7 Columbus

The 90's era WLLZ many of you opine for was already running on fumes. Wheels was at it's peak all through the 80's.

Re: 98.7 The Breeze just ruined itself with new Fresh / RnB playlist

I am listening to The Breeze a lot less. Too many annoying snowflake tunes. That crap is readily available on WNIC, among others.

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

I don't like the logo they are using; looks nothing like any of the classic WLLZ logos. Where the hell are the famous call letters?!?! Imaging isn't half bad but would sound better if voiced by Chris Corley (heard on WIOT and for a long time WDVD), Paul Turner (heard on WRSR) or Jon Pleise (heard o...

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

Wheelz didn't even make it halfway thru the decade of the 90's, yet the decade most well represented during the first 90 minutes of 106.7 Detroit's Wheels (yes, they are spelling it without the "Z") is - the 90's!!! This station sounds more like K-Rock circa 1997 music wise than it does Wheelz. Poi...

The studio is in Southfield, not Farmington Hills
I was referring to when WLLZ was a standalone FM, long ago, way before your time. The studios moved from 8009 Lyndon in Detroit, to 14 Mile & Northwestern Hwy in Farmington Hills. But thanks for playing.

Re: 98.7 signal in Genesee County

Correct. It's a mile or so north of there, at Lyndon and Cloverdale. The studios were in that building too. One day, the bullets started flying out front, and everyone had to duck and cover. Not long after, studios were moved to Farmington Hills.

Re: 98.7 The Breeze on air line-up

I know it's 2019, but I had more faith that Entercom, unlike iHeart, would actually invest some money into their on-air lineup. If this station really can't pull together an airstaff with at least one or more of Chris Edmonds, Dave Lockhart Kevin O'Niell, Kevin Sanderson, Linda Lanci, Lisa Berry, L...

Strangely enough, this is how WLLZ made it's debut. At first, the air talent had no names.

Re: 99.3 WQAN Signal Strength

From a technical standpoint, these stations are an unmitigated disaster. How long will it be before "renter's remorse" occurs?

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?
