Kevin hasn't touched his Facebook page since June. Ashley Asphalt? The name is an insult to anyone with a brain.


It is sad watching Donald Trump descend below historical mediocrity and into the realm of just plain miserable.

Ashley Asphalt is in Detroit, reporting on the Total Traffic Network, owned by i heart, which services many stations in the region.


It's all about the money!

Hi All,

I'm going to guess that Kevin Richards just had a week of vacation. I'm pretty certain I heard him on WOOD AM/FM some or all the week before (7/13-17).

Too funny I had to read here what the lady's voice was identifying as! Somehow I wasn't clearly hearing Asphalt, as it had been sounding more like "Ashley Amsphal" to my ears. Plus, Thursday and Friday, it honestly seemed more like the name was a recorded insertion...just the way some slight pauses and different treble sounded before and after the name.


On a personal note, I'll sadly not be needing to rely on traffic reports for a bit--as I was indeed furloughed at end-of-day Friday, per what I was told in early June. Thanks COVID--not! Healthcare has a longer timeline to revenue realization, but my employer has called back some of the furloughers from May--so this might just be an intermission for me.

Cheers! ~~ Statmanmi
