Maybe I should start a GoFundMe, which would go toward purchasing 100.3 (and LMA rights to 94.5 and 106.3) from the Coynes.

I bet I could raise at least $50,000!

Spoiler alert - I'd dump the stiff parade format. My format would be country hits from the 80s, 90s, and 00s.

Check the patterns first. I'm not sure cows and buffalo get diaries.

If I did a radio station GoFundMe, I'd use it toward buying one of the Benzie County stations then donating it to the new owners of WMOM in order to help fix the latter's signal holes in Manistee County

I did market research; they love retro country music. :)

Maybe a format like 99.7 Duke FM, I bet that has more listeners over in TC than North FM ever did.

Ironically WQON was country under previous owner.

Blarney Stone thinks they are saving the world by playing rock stiffs, so it will never happen.


Ask not what your country can do FOR you; ask what they are about to do TO YOU!!

Hold on.... 94.5 WJZQ? When was that sold?
WJZQ is still on 92.9. The 94.5 is WYPV, and was WLJZ for years
Geez...getting calls mixed up...

One of the reasons the Buzzboard exists is to deconstruct the B.S. that routinely appears in press releases. :blink

What about deer? You can't ignore the deer. ;)

I'd contribute. Sure would be nice to have a country station to listen to when I'm at my family's vacation home that doesn't play Dan & Shay or Maren "white Rihanna" Morris.

Ugggggh! I loathe Dan + Shay. They are even more unbearable than Sam Hunt and Florida Georgia Line.

A survey of the deer herd is underway. :)

What I hate the most about Dan & Shay is that they call themselves country when they're about as country as Michael Bolton. Oh, and that they brought JUSTIN F**KING BIEBER to country radio. Even Sham Hunt and Dumb & Dumber (aka Florida Georgia Line) didn't do that.

WATZ plays the good stuff on occasion and I can get a faint signal from WCBY's 100.7 translator at my vacation home. Otherwise, the Saturday night country gold show on WATZ and WTCM is the only place to hear anything close to real country (or at least the pre-clap/snap track version of pop country).
