Re: Nasty Tropospheric Ducting today

Lots of stations getting beat up bad today in the northern Lower and the Straits. MacFM 106.3 getting wonked by the country 106.3 out of Escanaba. The WCBY translator on 100.7 is getting beat up by a someone playing rap or hip-hop (quite the juxtaposition from classic country :eek ). The radio in m...

Chicago was all over the FM dial here in TC early this morning. I had to get up early to experience the opening at its strongest!

Re: WYPV/WJML

Looks like they have phased out their AM's from their branding... like many other stations these days. I still think that 101.1 FM as a JML signal is kind of redundant with 106.3 around. EDIT: Wait a minute... if 94.5 is simulcasting WJML, does that mean WHAK 960 is doing the same? Because WHAK has ...

I don't mean to derail the topic of this thread, but I wish there was more old footage of Alpena's CBS affiliate WBKB 11. All we have is is this little snippet 2 minutes and 32 seconds into this video here:

Re: Old School 7&4

In my collection of tapes, this 7&4 newscast from '91 is the oldest one I have right now. Sadly, it's a partial recording and the equipment at 7&4 was not doing very well that day. Blackouts galore!

I don't remember 29&8 having Wheel and Jeopardy, but I do remember Oprah and Live!
For what I know, I think 29&8 got Inside Edition and Entertainment Tonight from 7&4 sometime in the mid-90's in exchange for Wheel and Jeopardy, correct me if I'm wrong.

Re: Old School 7&4

If someone has newscasts from the '70s of any of the stations, that would be great to see. I went through my tapes, but the earliest local newscast is 7&4 doing their coverage and interviews on 9/11. I'll have to tap into my grandparents' tapes next time I'm visiting them. I do remember seeing a "S...

Re: Old School NoMI Radio

Back when I was a little, little kid in the 2000's, my mom would always have KHQ tuned in her car, as they were the only top 40 station at the time. In my dad's old Jeep, I recall hearing a lot of rock music which was probably the Zone. But most of those early radio memories for me revolve around KHQ.

Old School NoMI Radio

Has anybody ever recorded their favorite radio station on cassette with the IDs and commercials intact back in the day? My dad did in 1989 (most likely by accident), but it was only on a short part of the tape. Here's 106.7 when they were known as "107 KPK - The Peak": https://youtu.be/YJbiTrziOLw A...

First thing that jumps out is that gawdy logo which is largely the same today. It's definitely time to change!
About 20 years and still going strong... but then again 7&4 has had the same logo since the 90's if you don't count all the tweaks made to it over the years.

Okay, I'm back with one more capture, and back when I found the tape last year, it was my luckiest find. Hours worth of CBS programs! It's gonna be a while before I hit up any thrift stores in the summer and find some other good captures. Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GL2aqe6tPQA Part 2: h...

Re: WWMN Sold?

I thought Midwestern would use 106.3 as a simulcast of 580. For classic country, I'd like to see Midwest Communications (owner of Duke FM) buy one of 92.3 or 99.3 and use it as a semi-simulcast of 93.5/99.7. It'll probably never happen (more likely Uncle Charlie takes their licenses away) I think t...

This was a little surprising. Now Promise has a good signal over most of northern Michigan save for in the immediate Traverse City area (91.1 has that nasty null aimed right at TC).
And I know we'll never know the answer, but what would they have against good ol' TC?
