Re: America's Rural Radio Stations Are Vanishing

The article is largely bullshit. The vast majority of "rural" FM stations are still on the air, and avid Buzzboard readers are certainly aware of numerous instances where completely new FM stations have signed on the air in rural & unrated markets over the past 15 or so years. Examples: - B 103.9 B...

Re: How Wheels 106.7 programs by the hour

There's way too much G'NR and Motley Crue on Wheels for my liking. What's missing are the hit tracks from artists who don't have a big catalog. What's wrong with songs like "Inside Out" by XYZ? Or, "Jelly Roll" by Blue Murder? How about "Seasons" by Tyketto? Somewhere, AOR was jettisoned for the low...

Re: America's Rural Radio Stations Are Vanishing

Sad. Corporate Greed is an insatiable cancer in the U.S. :cry: There is nothing "corporate" about the schlemeils who keep trying to move this signal into Tucson. Quite the opposite, actually. They are not mentioned by name in this story, but a lot of people in the business are well aware of them, a...

Re: Mark King / Chuck Davies Leaving for Oregon

Imagine working with or taking advice from Mark King seriously . Maybe thats where his anger comes from . Know one does . Let's not knock the guy too much. I hear he's a top notch repair man when the Big Gulp or Slurpee machine is busted. Of course, that's if he's not on the phone with radio statio...

I love it. All it proves is that Casey was human like the rest of us. We all have a breaking point. It's funny how the longer he rants, the more enraged he gets.

Re: Townsquare GR scores big name as new OM

Per RadioInsight, Brian Thomas is the new cluster OM. In recent years, he has programmed 101 WCBS and 94.7 WLS-FM. Until very recently, he was OM/PD of Kicks 101.5 in Atlanta (an appointment that didn't make much sense to me since his background seems to be largely non-country radio). How interesti...

OKAY, but not right now, wait here's a better idea why don't you leave. Delete your account and never come back. I hope this nut is feeling the love.

Re: AM1330 Drops Tigers

There should be plenty of Tigers fans in Flint. Is there any money to be made carrying the Tigers on outstate stations? My guess would be that Cumulus isn't really trying to market WTRX to advertisers. Same problem they have with 1570.

They played a Train song from 2003 this morning.

If they want to play Train, why can't they play "Meet Virginia"? That's from 98.
Any song by Train is enough to get a station off my presets permanently. :barf

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

The smooth R&B and classic soul tunes need to be there. Stations that sound "too white" are not going to work in a market like Detroit. What doesn't fit are the newer, whiny, "snowflake" style ballads from recent years. I would dump those titles, or be a lot more selective about them. There are a to...

Re: Supertalk 1570, WWCK

I like the "pitiful" station when I'm in the Flint area. It's a radio station, who cares if it only has 300 FB followers? What difference does that make? Earlier this year their signal was poor at best. Coming south on I-75, it wasn't good until Clio exit, but last week, I started listening by Bay ...

I think both PDs were on a fool's errand in that job. Between Buzz, and Steve Chessare, I seriously doubt they were given much latitude to do anything.

Supertalk 1570, WWCK

This pitiful station has only 300 followers on Facebook, and posts are quite rare. Very little local content. Is anyone listening anymore? In certain markets, Cumulus seems to be basically running on fumes.

Re: Eric Clapton

WCSX should be playing Cocaine, but I'm gonna assume they would rather play one of the 3 I mentioned. One I really miss hearing is "After Midnight" When I worked in Lansing 35 years ago, MMQ played "The Core" off Slowhand on a regular basis. Great song, but a long one. Wouldn't mind hearing it on W...
