Re: What's on WOAP right now?

Music wise, I'm guessing they're aiming for a sound similar to what 92.5 WJSZ featured under prior ownership.

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 C...

I'm sure iFart's very overrated corporate alt programmer - Lisa Worden - has her finger on the pulse of what works well in Detroit. :lol Spokane, St. Louis, Detroit and Atlanta all have TERRIBLE ratings.

Re: Alt 106.7 - 6 months in

Agreed. I thought 100.7 The Zone was a decent station. 106.7 is basically 93.9 The River with a couple kiddie songs (i.e. Panic! at the Disco, Fall Out Boy) and a couple harder rocking songs mixed in each hour, with a greater emphasis on currents than 93.9. It's a Modern Rock-flavored CHR, essential...

Re: Alt 106.7 - 6 months in

It also failed here. WPLT tried it around 2000. It failed spectacularly, just as 106.7 is doing today. 106.7's playlist is a hot stinking pile of garbage. Too few want to hear sissy snowflake music in this town. 89X's ratings from 2016 to 2017 with a similar playlist is proof of that. My guess is th...

Re: Percentage of Sports Talk on 97.1

I listened to Wojo and Bogie this evening, and the topic was the former Michigan Central train station. With NBA and NHL action wrapping up, and football inactive, it is certainly possible the topics have tilted back toward general conversation in recent days. Hard to fill tons of air time talking b...

Re: New Meteorologist Just in Time

Certainly that break-in on WLAJ wasn't Erik's call. Someone on the Lansing board claimed WLNS/WLAJ (at least at the time) lacked the proper technology to allow for break-ins on one station only. Sister station WLNS has heavy viewership in the Howell area. Still, it sucks that the football game on WL...

Re: Alt 106.7 - 6 months in

KLOS was indeed a straight-up Mainstream Rock outlet for most of 2016, but they reverted to a Classic Rock playlist quite a while back.

These days, their playlist is not all that different from what 106.7 The D played prior to its migration to Variety Hits.

Re: Sync 3 v3.0 upgrade issues, a/k/a Ford's tech people are MORONS!!!

Maps, music and easy functionality are at the top of my "must have" list. In terms of the makes that TC Talks mentioned, I'd be curious to know which of those have Apple Car Play and/or Android Auto compatibility. Ford's Sync technology will not directly replicate the map I have on the phone, but if...

Re: WKNR AM 850 Cleveland

It was certainly much more powerful than usual here in Metro Detroit last night as well. Lots of fading, but when the signal was "on," it was booming. No sign of anything else on the frequency last night.

No meaningful difference in the daytime signal here compared to normal.

Re: Sync 3 v3.0 upgrade issues, a/k/a Ford's tech people are MORONS!!!

Out of curiosity - which version of Sync did your car have? Was it the dreadful MyFordTouch (Sync 2.0) ? MF Touch sucked so bad because it had zero app support!!! In many ways, it was a downgrade from the original Sync. Don't get me wrong, MF Touch (at least for me) always worked as intended, it jus...

Today's version of "Alternative" is a garbage radio format. In market after market, it is getting its ASS KICKED in the ratings by Active Rock or Heritage Rock stations. Examples: Detroit Boston (Alt 92.9 has lower ratings in Boston than the Active Rock station from Worcester) Minneapolis (Compare 9...

I think it's a lousy proposal, personally. NAB = National Association of Bastards. The whole purpose of this proposal is to gin up M&A activity and to give a short to medium term boost to corporate radio stock prices. Would not shock me if Entercom and Cumulus want to "wed."

He's losing in ratings to Live PD and SportsCenter. He had to say something ridiculous to remind people that he still exists. Not exactly a fair comparison.
