All mentions of Bob & Tom have been scrubbed from 106.3's web site!

Given the station's pivot to a middle of the road format (soft hits from the 70's & 80's), this is not terribly surprising, if true.

I also see that no Northern Michigan stations are listed on the show's official affiliate list:

Yep. As of January 1. I might be in the minority, but I miss the show.

Sort of interesting that they've gone back to a format very similar to the original sound of Easy 106.3 (before the station went to a brighter blend of AC).

You have to remember that the retired people in Northern Michigan, who are in their 60s, were in their 20s when MOYL and Stardust began. I think they have added more 1970s, which other than AOR, were much mellower than even the 1980s.

I really like the station. I'm listening online right now. When the Summer begins, they'll probably add more Boat/Yacht Rock.

Now there are playing Judy Collins, "Both Sides Now", from 1968.


Is THAT where they got the idea for the 486-SX?
