Rock 105/95.5 hires another WRIF/WCSX alum!

This time, well traveled rock jock Dave Doran is inbound.

He spent plenty of time at WRIF, WCSX, WIOT and the former WIQB.

I miss hearing him on the air at WRIF and WCSX. Jade Springart - one of two primary weekend jocks at WRIF these days - is fucking terrible on the air.

Rock 105/95-5 also just hired Roxanne Steele to handle middays.

Smitty's last day was yesterday. He left to become a bartender at Right Brain Brewery.

Roxanne's no longer at Razor 94-7 In Green Bay ?!?! Or will she simply be VT'ing a shift in addition to her main gig?

Ha! I worked with Dave when I was consulting at wcsx. If he's actually living in town I'll have to look them up otherwise he's probably voice tracking from Livonia.

FYI, Carrie Carlson was the first midday at wcsx when we flipped it back in 1987. She is now mid-day at wtcm.

Indeed she is, and she sounds terrific! Listened to her while up north hunting last October.

Interesting! I was at WCSX in that time frame. Yet I still can't figure out who you are. Only consultant I was aware of was Buzz. And Fred. I'm drawing a blank.

Drugs are bad.

I miss Dave. Great air talent and very creative. Could really pick up the slack in the prod room. I'd sure love to see him return to Detroit some time soon.

Greater had consultants in more departments than programming. I worked with both Joe Krause and Mike Chires.

Actually this was so long ago, they had an office on NW Highway and the original building that was torn down. I never stepped foot in the "Drew and Mike" building as it was called.

No, I trust TCT. He's been a well-known, trusted member here for ages. Some of us know who each other are but not everyone is open with their name here for obvious reasons. I'll take his word for it.

Was in their listening area today. Roxanne is definitely voice tracked. Rock 105 has issues with the sound levels with voice tracking, as the outgoing music is loud then the recording is way too soft. Trudy Daniels voice tracking had the same issues.

:lol Who would lie about working in radio? It's more like a mental dysfunction. I got my third class in 1984. I haven't gone four months without being in a station since.
