Re: Then, there's this.....

At least 2 local TV stations did live shots today about Aretha Franklin from in front of the Motown Museum. But she never recorded for Motown! This is what can happen when all the knowledgeable old farts are replaced by kids from out of town who can't find their asses with two hands and a map. Whic...

Re: 102.7 WPZR to EMF (K-Love)

I assume that 102.7 will soon add a HD2 channel to run their Air-1 network and feed their remaining translators.

Re: 102.7 WPZR to EMF (K-Love)

K-Love is running a looping announcement on their translators at 105.5, 106.3 and 107.1 plus 92.3 WMXD HD2. The announcement directs listeners to 102.7 FM.

Re: High School Coverage in Michigan

The government cable TV access channels in Shelby Township and Warren both have TV production trucks and cover full length play by play of high school sports. No games are played during the summer, but there are probably games still posted online. Royal Oak may also still do this.

The Mildred Gaddis daily show will come to an end with an election special on Tuesday August 7th. She will do a weekend program on 105.9 WDMK Sunday mornings from 8 to...

Here is the entire contents of the loop that is playing on W228CJ 93.5 FM and now W252BX 98.3 FM (I cannot hear W228CU 93.5 FM Riverview, but I assume they are also running the message or will be soon): “This is WDMK HD3 Detroit, with a special announcement for K-Love listeners on 93.5 and 98.3 FM. ...

Re: Local Road Repair

Unlike most cities, Warren has a “Strong Mayor” form of government. That means that the DPW reports directly to the Mayor, NOT the City Council. Most cities without a strong Mayor have a city manager the DPW reports to like my town, Ann Arbor. I would be very surprised if any city in SE Michigan ha...

Unlike most cities, Warren has a “Strong Mayor” form of government. That means that the DPW reports directly to the Mayor, NOT the City Council.

Re: 102.7 WPZR to EMF (K-Love)

I love all the fake "likes" on the station's Facebook page. 93,000+ "likes" despite having next to zero visitor posting traffic and a weekly FM cume of perhaps 300,000. I doubt 1 in 3 listeners - especially given the station's old skewing demos - have "liked" the Facebook page. Lying is not a very ...

Re: 102.7 WPZR to EMF (K-Love)

Since WPZR began simulcasting on the 99.9 FM translator, they have been giving an incorrect legal I.D. At the top of the hour, they run the following recorded message: “Praise 102.7 Mt. Clemens-Detroit and 99.9 W260CB Hamtramck-Detroit” Somehow, they forgot the WPZR call letters! (and I do not hear ...

Anyone employed at Praise 102.7 should be seeking new employment elsewhere immediately. Three lousy translators, on two different frequencies, do not a "network" make. WPZR currently runs national programs weekdays in morning drive, afternoon drive, and evenings. The only local hosts appear to be R...

Re: WCAR flip

The new WCAR 1090 seems to play a rap song every once in a while. They have gaps of silence between songs. Format is a mess. Bad announcing. Only commercial is a reader for an event planning company with web site at houseofpearls.net that the station is probably connected to. How long before the mon...

New translator on 97.5 FM

I see that W248CC, a translator on 97.5 FM, is now listed as “licensed” on several web sites. They are supposed to be located on the big tower at Meyers and 8 Mile, with an extremely directional pattern to protect stations in Lansing and Windsor. They are owned by Smile FM, but are listed as repeati...

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

The translator went silent yesterday. WMUZ filed a notification of suspension with the FCC because of the interference with WQKL. They’re looking for another transmitter site, and plan on resuming operation. What if they moved the WRDT translator on 107.1 to the WRDT night transmitter site near 8-1...

Re: Tom Joyner returns to 105.9 Kiss

The possible move of the Praise format to the 99.9 FM translator could just mean a new, more salable format for 102.7 FM. Media One/Radio One operates third FM stations in Houston and Indianapolis with CHR formats, both called “Radio Now”.

Re: Tom Joyner returns to 105.9 Kiss

I am afraid the “Soul” format is gone for good. On a weekday afternoon last week, I listened for several hours straight and did not hear even one commercial (except for the live read one that came with the traffic report). Advertisers don’t want older listeners. I bet too many older listeners are al...

So Catholic radio WDEO has applied for a translator on 105.5 with a DEEP NULL TO THE EAST. 990 WDEO itself has a DEEP NULL TO THE EAST to protect 980 CFPL London Ontario. 1090 WCAR Livonia carried Catholic programming at one time, and they also have a DEEP NULL TO THE EAST to protect 1090 CKKW Kitch...
