Re: "Cutting the Cord"

In short, years ago. I did go back to cable for a brief time early this year only to realize, nothings changed with it. I live in a Condominium and only have 1 TV. Having a Dish where I am is nearly impossible, as the rules the HOA set up are so particular . I recently got a Roku stick, so now I can...

Re: 106.5 Toledo to be sold

WMTR has sort of a lighter edged Classic hits format. Interesting Scenario.

Re: 106.5 Toledo to be sold

97.3's signal has improved since the days when RASP owned station. I still say it wouldn't be a bad buy for Urban, in Urban's other 2 markets, they have non Black based formats on a couple of there stations. WMTR moving to 106.5, hmmm? that would actually work. 96.1 I think is only 1000 watts if tha...

Re: 106.5 Toledo to be sold

Fulton County is kind of no mans land for an Urban format. In theory it makes sense to target the west side of town. If UrBan were to purchase it, they have a couple other stations that don't have an Urban based format, so Maybe Jack-fm or classic hits could be an option for them. Toledo has yet to ...

Re: March 2018 Radio Ratings

I am thinking, 98.7 will rebrand and possibly shift to an up tempo Hot AC format, similar to what 96.5 in Philly is doing. WDVD sounds a bit soft these days. Which would be a good move for them. 106.7, it's time harden and expand the playlist. This is an old example but something like 97.1 Extreme r...

Re: March 2018 Radio Ratings

I'd love that but if a change is made, it would likely be AC. Same old story with 106.7.

Re: The Obsession With Politics

Good points Calvert, all the way around. I think that's what burns me out about Politics, is that this stuff goes on in a constant Cycle. At least in Canada, it's 4-6 weeks and its all over. Maybe ought to switch to a parliamentary system. I don't know. I know of people who have been sucked into thi...

Re: WRDT translator @ 107.1 MHz is interfering with Ann Arbor's WQKL. Help stop the interference! Read for details!

I had to pick someone up from DTW Airport the other day, I have not been up to the Detroit area in awhile. My God what a cluster eff on the FM. This is about as bad as The Atlanta area, that I've read about. Any more Translator Ap's should be denied and a few shut down.

Re: Improved AM in Subaru

Right Turkey, I remember you mentioning that. The AM was useless in that truck, not to mention other problems I had with that truck. I find the one in my Honda isn't bad.

My Mom had a GMC Jimmy, same thing as the bravada, yep same issue I had with my truck.

Tool

I always found this band on the odd side but in a good way. There is really not any other band that sounds quite like them, well... there is a perfect circle which Maynard James Keenen kind of bounces between. There Music videos kind of add to the mysterious Ora of the band. [youtube]https://www.you...

He was quite entertaining, the show seems to have lost it's punch since its departure. You never know but I wouldn't rule anything out either.

How many times can you kill something off bring it back, kill it off, bring it back,...etc...?

The FCC needs to crack down in other markets too, such as Detroit.

Toledo Translator FM's

Excluding 100.7, 92.9 and 94.9, how many of these are going currently? 92.1 I know is, which for the life of me I don't see how that's still on the air. I have not heard 104.1 or 103.3 in awhile. Did EMF take them off the air? Will 1230 WCWA ever get one?
