Re: What happened to Maz on the DMP?

I love Maz on the DMP. His 60s references, pop culture stuff, etc., are a hoot. He's the perfect fall guy when things go wrong. Drew should bring him back. He's the perfect comic foil.

Re: Beautiful Music Stations in Detroit

The "Voice of Monroe" WVMO, 98.3 has some nice adult EZ music in the 70's until the Tower 98 format landed there in the early 80's. Ha Ha! My memories of V-Mo was format by train wreck. They played whatever was next in the record bin. Although, I didn't listen very often, and sometimes might have a...

Re: Beautiful Music Stations in Detroit

We got our first AM/FM radio in about 1971. I found it curbside a few doors down, its owner having thrown it out. It was a Lloyd's. We took it to Metry Sound on Harper Avenue, where the repairman replaced two tubes to bring it back to life. Just months later, Metry Sound closed shop. At that time, ...

Re: WSB Atlanta

750 will stay as-is and when AM radio becomes widely unavailable in newer cars, they'll basically sell the station for scrap value. That's my prediction. Do you really believe AM radio in cars is going out? I'm not asking that as a challenge to you. It's just the first time I've ever heard that pre...

Re: WCCO Drops CBS Newscasts

Back in the day, WJR was Detroit's long time CBS affiliate until about 1976. They used to air their own newscasts throughout the day, except for key hours, like 8am, 6pm, &pm, etc., and air CBS in the other dayparts. WJR was never a CBS O & O, but a key affiliate. CBS personnel would make regular ap...

Re: Beautiful Music Stations in Detroit

Doesn't anybody remember "Detroit Beautiful Place to Be!", "WWJ-FM 97.1 ". Or, their legendary competitor, "From the Golden Tower of the Fisher Building, WJR-FM 96.3". Both stations were highly rated and had separate staffs, etc., including sales staffs. Both stations were separate from their AMs.

I hope he's not going away. He's definitely different from Detroit's other sportstalkers!

I haven't seen that station since Elwy Yost was around. I think that was his name? Great interviewer and movie host!

Re: Warren Pierce

I liked Warren's style since his days, doing nights, his gig at the old WCAR AM1130 in the early 70s. In recent years, he reviewed TV shows, etc., as part of his style. That type of programming is perfect for WJR. Nowadays, most of WJR's programming is brokered, which I call "Program Length Commerci...

Re: Don't cover the boobs with the banner

I suppose this is a good place to place a humble request upon our local media outlets. Because Channel 7 just did it again. During the 4 o'clock hour, CC does a plug for 2.4 Court TV, and introduces Julie Grant to give us more details. I immediately notice that Julie is easy on the eyes … until som...

Re: Big News regarding ESPN 1000, Chicago

I have a rather original idea for WMVP. Play Top 40 and change the call letters to W-C-F-L! Cheap, clean, and easy to market!

Re: WPAY

I'd leave the WPAY call letters, where they are. Buy 1560am & the for sale FM translator, in Toledo, and use the WOHO call letters. Formats can be the subject of future debate.
