Re: WRDT Files For 107.1

I drove up for the Tigers game this afternoon and while driving on 94, it was all preaching a little east of Romulus. Very pissed off, as I greatly prefer 107one to anything Detroit or Windsor have to offer.

Re: Chicago’s The Loop to become K-Love

I read somewhere that EMF will retain the call letters for this station.

Edit: Spoke too soon. The WLUP call letters will also become a thing of the past as soon as Saturday rolls around. I’m at least a little surprised they didn’t pick up 101.1 to give Air-1 a nice signal in Market #3.

Re: Chicago’s The Loop to become K-Love

If I had to venture a guess, K-Love goes to 97.9. Air-1 goes to 94.3.

It will be interesting to see where WKQX goes.

Re: Detroit Nielsen audio ratings - January survey

What they should’ve done was rebrand the station as “106.7 the Lake” once they shifted formats. As good of a brand as “the D” would have been for the market, it had been long associated with almost the exact opposite of what their female target wanted to hear, so it never really gained traction. If ...

I could not agree with you more, sg. I think the official portrait should be more formal, and he’s had several good photos that could’ve been recreated as portraits.

My mother’s family is staunchly conservative. My father is apathetic to politics in general, but tends to be pretty moderate. His family leans pretty liberal though.

Re: 2018 Predictions

Cumulus is bankrupt. There's no way they can afford the talent to do the format right enough to take shares away from the Ticket. And, as said above, 105.1 was a disaster which ran quite a bit of syndicated fare. Cumulus can't afford to fail like Greater Media did at this point and DRQ is probably d...

Re: 1260am Boston Dumps right wing talk for a Brazilian format

If you've ever been out to Boston, this makes sense. Tons of Brazilian immigrants in the Chelsea/Everett area and plenty in Framingham as well. Last time I was out there, had a great Portuguese sausage omelette. (Side story)

There's definitely a market to make a few bucks with this format.

Re: Could this be the end of the road for WBAI in NYC?

Pacifica, and especially WBAI, are the cockroaches of radio. Nuclear war could wipe out life as we know it and WBAI would still find a way to stay on the air.

Re: ALT 106.7 Detroit's New Alternative

Correct me if I'm wrong, but KLLT a rimshot for a large part of the metro area, which would explain why that frequency has been a wheel of formats for as long as I remember. At the end of the day, that station simply serves to knock The Point off its pedestal, as they're usually keeping iHeart's top...

I can only hope any such flip - should one happen - would result in the removal of the f*cking awful "Rover's Morning Glory" show

I think SG is racial-fluid, which means he identifies as whichever race is most convenient for him at that moment. Kinda like that Rachel Dolezal nut from a few years back.

And the iHeart app still has it as the D, too.

As much as I've been waiting for a nice alternative to 89x's garbage playlist for the times I visit the area, Premium Choice on a good signal in a top 15 market!?! Yuck.
