Re: Soft Rock (Gold Based AC) Station

We used to have something like that in Northern Michigan, Easy 95.5/106.3. I loved the format very much, but Black Diamond would eventually run it into the ground by adding voicetracked jocks and more modern music (what's "Scars To Your Beautiful" doing in a playlist with "The Old Songs"?)

WQEZ now WWMK... B&T coming back?

So WQEZ's changing their format to "Mac FM", the "greatest hits of the 70s and 80s". Check out this press release! Bob & Tom are coming back up north as well.

Eagle 101.5 on 106.3

I decided to DX this morning (picked up some Owen Sound stations along the way) and apparently, WWMN is relaying WMJZ rather than WMTE. They must be having an issue with their tower...

Just heard them a few minutes ago. The audio quality was a little crappy though...

Re: Two stations turn in licenses

A sad and slow death to a once popular (I think?) radio station, WMTE. I thought WBNZ, WOUF and WCUZ's licenses would finally be turned in, but I guess not. I never thought I'd see the day...

Re: Smitty

You guys have this wrong. The rant on Devitt and the internet exclusive "C-word song" are two separate recordings on SoundCloud. The rant was heard over the air, and the vulgar song was clearly marked "Internet Exclusive".

Re: Old school 9&10

I found those videos just yesterday. I plan on buying a VCR capture card soon and putting my partial recording of a 1996 9&10 Nightside Report on YouTube. I also have a full 11:00 newscast from 2005 (if that's considered "Old School")

KLT

(Note: I don't think this is worth posting, but I'm just pointing this out) I've got my dial tuned on KLT right now, and I just heard a Doors-Nickelback segue. :? Weird. Not to mention that the next songs were by the Stones and The Who. But Nickelback?

Don't forget WUPS/WTWS. Last I recall, he was still doing weather for The Bay.

Maybe they're spinning WMQU off to Baraga a little earlier?
Q100.3/Y101.1/97.5 WKLT/98.9 WKLZ/94.3 WFCX/92.5 WFDX/105.5 WSRJ and 106.7 WSRT
How WSRT stands out from the other stations listed makes me wonder if a new format is on the way...

The sale of WDBC/WYKX to Sovereign probably has a factor in this.

Re: Proof that KLT's listeners are getting really, really old...

No wonder they have been playing the same songs over and over and over and over and over again since 1982. Radio these days...

Re: Status of WSRT?

Why don't they just spin off 93.7 and move the Ticket format to 96.7 so they could buy 106.7? The idea of Bob FM on WSRT sounds interesting.
