They’re successful because they’re doing something right and because of their heritage, That’s why WRIF is successful, Heritage is the key, Mom and Dad listened and now I do, That’s a key player. When I was a teenager I couldn’t stand my Father listening to WJR in the car when we went out as a family, Guess What? I listen to WJR today, I became my Father, So Heritage is key.

Here we go again with the labeling and pre-judgements.

Time for another crazy concept.

I don't like the programming WJR has to offer, so I don't listen. I know what is offered and choose not to participate. If that is what "Steve" is into, bully for him. Just like there may be things he doesn't like that I play in the car. He doesn't have to listen to it. And I don't feel the need to call him names because of it.

Folks seem to be much more quick on the draw these days. And I've said it before...something extreme is gonna wind up going down very soon. And it doesn't have to be that way. The question is, what is going to happen to start uniting people? The sad thing is, I don't even see another 9/11 style of event bringing people closer together again. Just more rhetoric and name calling and internet trolling.

Mega, I get what your stating and totally understand, When someone like Borderboy makes remarks as such I just look at the source and that explains it all. I’m 63 years young and heard it all and seen it all and have a lot more to see in my remaining life and hopefully will live a long life like my Father Who lived to see 89 years.

What the hell happened? 9/11 didnt seem that long ago. And yet, youre right. we probably will never see that kind of unification again.
It does seem like Americans in general do not like the country or are as proud of being American as they were maybe a decade ago. This criticism or America shame is a new phenomenon. It used to be something on the far outer fringe, but its now becoming mainstream, almost like criticizing the country is the new cool thing. But why? And how did it happen so quickly?
One would have thought sandy Hook and/or Parkland would have had a unifying effect. but no. All politicizing and America bashing.

Entertainers constantly bash the President nowadays on social media, TV, paper media, etc. and nothing happens to them. Dixie Chicks complain about the President sending US military to Iraq, and their career is over. Times have certainly changed.

The Dixie Chicks just simply sucked that’s why their career ended the way it did, They could have continued they didn’t because they knew they sucked. I love Country Music, Really! Just hate Nash FM.

Earlier today, I happened to see a brand new GMC pickup, with an old WLLZ sticker on the bumper. Apparently, someone out there likes the new Wheels.

Steve,the Dixie Chicks didn't suck,they just made the mistake of expressing their (later confirmed ) belief that Dummy Bush lied the U.S. into the Iraqi War by claiming Iraq had nuclear weapons. The Bush-loving Country establishment (especially Cheap Channel-I mean,Clear Channel) responded with a moratorium on playing Dixie Chicks records,which ended the girls' career as Country artists .
