Re: WURO & WUWB

Camping near West Branch, eh? Kicking the tires on WBMI perhaps? With an FM, and a couple of LPTV's, you could be king of all media in Ogemaw County. Bring on the $5 spots!

Re: 106.5 Toledo

The trouble with 106.5 is the proximity to the airport, and therefore, the need to use a shorter tower. Out near the airport is the only place it meets all of the mileage separation requirements, so it is what it is.

Re: Lew Dickey UPDATE

Now there's news that Lew is trying to undo the acquisition of Akazoo by his "blank check" media company. I imagine the other investors are not pleased with this situation. :lol

Re: Lew Dickey UPDATE

Akazoo is a good company, from what I've read. It is basically Asia and Africa's version of Spotify. Unfortunately, I have no confidence in Lew Dickey's ability to guide that company properly. His reign at Cumulus speaks for itself. He'll probably run Akazoo into the ground, along with some add-on ...

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

I try not to go TOO deep; I get that it's a familiarity game. So I'm not trying to pull random album tracks out of my ass, you know? I'm trying to stick to tunes most people would know and remember. It just bugs me because I'm so happy to have WLLZ back, but it could be so much more. Yes, that is i...

Re: Columbus' radio sucks as bad as Toledo's

[...] Proximity to Cleveland and Cincinnati can be credited for that. Columbus is about 125 miles from Cleveland; about 100 mi. from Cincinnati. That doesn't seem like "proximity" for FM listening. MW is referring to the FCC spacing requirements of high power FM stations, not listenable signals.

Whether you like Bogey or not, it's good to finally see some young talent coming up through the ranks, as opposed to the same old familiar retreads.

Re: Northern Michigan Radio In My Area STINKS!

Q100 probably needs a balance between the deep tracks and the burnt to a crisp classic rock tunes that the drywallers and electricians sing along with. While I get what Q100 is trying to do, there are many things that need adjustment. The logo looks like it belongs to a Country station. With regard ...
