97.1 was a 70s station about two decades ago and it flopped.
Star 97 failed as a 70's station because the station's sound was "too white". Missing were the 70's R&B songs we all loved. You can only go so far with Frampton, and The Steve Miller Band.

Re: WMOM shuts down

Something here isn't passing the smell test. If WMOM were as successful as some seem to speculate, it seems to me that someone would have stepped up to run the place until it could be sold. Why didn't one of the all important "Sports Guys" make that offer? Most likely, the answer is that the place w...

Re: My 2 Cents on WLLZ

Here are a few signature Wheels tunes, certainly eligible for "deep cuts" status: Frozen Ghost - "Should I See" Touch - "Don't You Know What Love Is" Cracker - "Low" Eric Clapton - "The Core" XYZ - "Inside Out" Saraya - "Love has Taken it's Toll" Siren - "All is Forgiven" All of the above were popul...

Re: The Witch Hunt is Over

Trump is taking a victory lap for the NAFTA re-write when it hasn't even been presented to Congress yet for a vote. He touts his strength yet folds like a cheap tent as soon as he meets Putin, Kim Jong Un, or any member of the Saudi royal family in person. He touts his negotiating skills, yet winds...

Re: WBCP Champaign-Urbana

When I've heard it, It's been R&B oldies. I believe it's diplexed on the tower at the Saga complex. Not sure when it moved there. WBCP was originally 250w.

WJR Wings press conference

Listening to it now. Sounds like royal shit. Frankly, a POTS line would have been more audible.

Re: AM1330 Drops Tigers

When Citadel had WTRX and WFBE, there were actually a couple of staff members and an AE who worked almost exclusively on WTRX. There was also some LOCAL programming on WTRX during Citadel's ownership. Citadel was a lousy company, but at least they made an effort.

Re: Is Bill McAllister voicetracking mornings at 106.7 Fake Wheels?

If he's live - that's rather incredible. He does next to NOTHING on the air. Sometimes, 45 minutes or more pass without him saying a single word. Trudi was a midday jock at 105.1 up north for all of six months (maybe a little longer) - voicetracked, of course. I believe that is her only prior music...

Re: Nomination: Enby Cee

So, Enby Cee, who's been on here for years, has a bad week apparently, loses his cool, and gets nominated. But on the other hand, it's perfectly fine for someone to continually instigate other posters, ruin threads with non-sensical gibberish, tales of a fictional radio career and family, and that's...

Re: Stoney and Bogey

I liked Stoney much better in his early days. When he was on Sunday nights sports talk show with Mitch Albom(before Mitch got all holier than thou). Were they not on WLLZ 98.7 then switched over to WJR 760 ? Or was it just Stoney that was on WLLZ on Sunday night? The Stoney today seems to be a bit ...

Re: 106.7 FAKE WHEELS is out of touch with its audience (shocking, I know)

Earlier today, I happened to see a brand new GMC pickup, with an old WLLZ sticker on the bumper. Apparently, someone out there likes the new Wheels.
