Nicolae Ceausescu The King of Communism documentary

This is a really good documentary. I would say him and Enver Hoxha of Albanian were the worst Dictators in Communist Europe. Erich Honecker in East Germany too. However, in the end this dude and his awful wife got what they had coming. I come from an Eastern European Background on both sides of my f...

Re: Free preview of Sirus XM in my car

hmmm? I guess I wasn't eldigebale but I do get something in the mail from time to time asking me to subscribe, the prior owner of my car I think had it the whole time they owned it.

Re: Subaru SXM Radio

My Mom has a Nissan Rouge and when you are in reverse, you cant do anything with the radio. Ditto for someone I know, who has a VW Passat. I've never had a Subaru but there pretty awesome cars from what I hear. Anyway, that's weird it goes back to the default channel.

Re: Ohio 2018 Statewide races

Good move for Dewine. Mike Dewine is probably the best known Politician. Husted, who is the SOS really didn't have a chance at the nomination. So 2nd place isn't a bad take away.

Re: Time to Flip 100.7 Toledo Back to rock?

Cumulus did it stupid, should have came up with a new name and not even bothered with those awful liners. Should have done a soft relaunch. So,they bungled that one badly. No, it makes no sense to hire local for an low power signal. The Zone I think would have been killed off regardless or in theory...

Re: Toledo radio 2018 predictions

The Whole WMTR thing should be challenged. Once you get into mid Lucas county that station is dead. WXKR, well if one of the hosts mentioned retires or leaves then I can almost guarantee you that they wouldn't be replaced. Maybe totally going satellite fed is a bit of a jump but this is Cumulus were...

Toledo radio 2018 predictions

1. 106.5 The Ticket's will remain in the ratings basement

2. Cumulus goes cheap on 94.5 and starts to air WW1's Classic rock format in most day parts

3. Still no Detroit Tigers affiliate in Toledo

4. Classic hip hop possibly comes to town

5. 94.9 The Beat hits a 4 share once or twice

Time to Flip 100.7 Toledo Back to rock?

Now, I am not starting a "bring back the zone" thread. The Zone is dead and gone, it was time for it to go. Modern rock has had a rocky history in Toledo to say the least. However, I think there is room for an active rock station even on a small scale. Would 100.7fm flipping back to rock using WW1's...

I've heard nothing about it. Does Pitts still own it or someone else? I don't pay too much attention to the TV end of things.

Songs that dont fit the radio format

Recently on WFRO 99.1 out of Fremont OH, which carries a satellite fed Bright/Hot acish format. I heard "self esteem" by Offspring. I for a minute, had thought " wow did they go rock?" no way. Well, the format is the same but the song choice surprised me. A long time ago, on Mix 95.7 in Toledo I hea...

Re: Windsor Radio vs. Detroit Radio

I'm sure that would be challenged, because of The Wolf. At this point, I think Bell is probably only concerned with Windsor. By closing there offices in Detroit, they pretty much washed there hand of the american side. If my information is still accurate, 93.9 does much better then 88.7 does in the ...

Re: Windsor Radio vs. Detroit Radio

89x was even a little bit of a player in Toledo, they got 2 shares from time to time. In fact, in late 2001 Cumulus was forced to launch The Zone on 106.5 because 89x kicking Rock 106's ass. That was a long time ago. 93.9 went through formats like crazy in the early 90s, More 94, Urban AC(I think), ...

Re: Windsor Radio vs. Detroit Radio

I don't see any format 88.7 or 93.9 does really making a real impact on Detroit radio. Bell already waved the white flag on the American side with 89x. CKLW's hey day was before Cancon Rules. With Alt now here, there gonna have to choose between The River and 89x, I think 89x gets the boot. The rive...

Alice's Curse lives. I am still of the belief that, they blew it not putting WDFN on 106.7. Them re-launching country on that frequency under a different name was moronic. So, in a little over 18 years this is format #8. Alice,Drive,Fox,Beat,The D, The D 2.0, and now Alt. 102.7 is still the king :D ...
