Re: iHeart Misses Payment

Oh well, forgot about Cumulus, Townsquare, Entercom among others. I just hate corporate radio with a burning passion.

Does anyone have any recordings of Fox 33's newscasts from the era just before 9&10 took them over? Or any recordings of Jim Kosek on Fox 33? I was amused by his presentation style but also amused at how badly his video was "pasted in" sometimes.
I can only dream... :(

Re: Old School 7&4

Alright, more links for you people. From 2003, here's a clip of a 7&4 report on the 77th annual National Cherry Fest in TC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSyFzjr1JBM And here's a little something from 29&8 - Rita Melotti Live (I'm assuming) from 1996: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kH3ch775uNA

Re: Old school 9&10

I often wonder just how many people in Northern Michigan still have any tapes of recorded newscasts (either 9&10 or 7&4...perhaps even 29&8? one can hope). If I can find it, I have a short 9&10 Ident from the "Spirit of CBS" days. Along with old commercials. I believe the show was a "Neil Diamond" ...

Thanks for posting. I liked the short clip of the 7&4 vs. 9&10 basketball game near the end.
No problem! I found that one clip interesting as well.

Old School 7&4

I started this thread up so I couldn't derail the 9&10 thread into a 7&4 one. Anyway, here's some links to some old 7&4 stuff I've uploaded to YouTube: Here's an odd mix of 7&4 newscasts from 2005 and 2002 (not exactly "old school", but a few years down the road? We'll see.): https://www.youtube.com...

No problem.

I also plan on posting that soon. Pre-"NewsChann...

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"?) Honestly,...

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.
