Re: 106.5 Toledo to be sold

So 5 FM and 2 AM with translators for $1.2 million total? Sounds pretty damn cheap. Heck, even way back in 1979 WSPD sold for $1 million, and that was way before the 1996 hellfire FCC edict to buy everybody for $5 on the $1.

Re: WTVG adding a THIRD HD subchannel?!?!

WTH WTVG, why not Antenna TV instead? Why ION? If they don't have a super-duper video encoding system behind it, like Channel 30 does, you will end-up with cruddy video (ie CH48). It might explain why WTVG has a whole new digital front end, as evidenced by the missing audio on their newscasts lately...

Re: SiriusXM and Cancellations

Those who remember the bingo cards from Columbia House Records, realize that was easier to cancel than this. You bought your 3rd LP, you mailed back the card and checked-off "I'M DONE - CANCEL. and you were done. No dickin around on the phone for 25 minutes.

File FCC Complaint about Kimmel Oct 3rd ?

If I'm not mistaken, several morons were fined by the FCC a couple years ago for being stupid enough to broadcast over the air, the dual Emergency Broadcast System (EAS) alert tone pair (unmodified). On top of that, TV stations were replaying the EAS streams for zombie alerts DURING their news repor...

Re: Beautiful music stations

Yes, thank you it was definitely WMNI 920 Columbus. I spoke to the engineer and he had a terrific audio chain in the studio at the time. The only beautiful music station I'm aware of is KLUX-HD1 on 89.5 in Corpus Christi which has an eclectic mix of instrumentals, Ez, vocals and Catholic Church PSAs...

Re: Changes at WMNT 48?

Yeah no closed captioning, on Antenna TV they will interrupt in the middle of the program with the station ID, they don't run the programs on time, and Antenna TV deserves a much better quality signal than the garbage it is putting out; likewise for the out of proportion Cozi TV as well. I like to s...

Re: Toledo Pirate Radio Station?

Nota. But FCC is on a Witch hunt for pirates. AM would probably be safer territory if one was so inclined, but then you hear of Part 15 AM legals that have had a visit- which I can't understand at all?

Re: Beautiful music stations

Ten years ago there was an AM this side of Columbus, around 900 on the dial, that had an instrumental beautiful music format, and broadcast in AM stereo - very nice sounding audio, but had to be south of Findlay, OH to receive it.

Yes, Ted Strausser. Even got a letter from him. He had another program on called "Sunday night" and even played a musical request of mine. Early 80's WJR truly was a full service must listen (Tigers too).

Re: The Return of Yacht Rock

And the audio 'quality' on CH30 was crap the last time I tuned-in YR. Don't worry, you get to hear the latest in Payola radio: Rod Stewart radio. Would have made more sense to have a Paul Simon channel as he is releasing a new LP of songs of his that he likes that weren't that popular, so he re-work...

Re: R.I.P. Jimmy Launce (WJR for 38 years)

I liked the Mike Deja (sp?) version of "Patterns in Music" after (what was his name?) retired. WJR had some very unique music programming in the late 70's and 80's. Talk about a big difference, but as teen, on Sunday mornings, I would flip back and forth (on the AM dial of course) between the local ...

there's a LPFM on 96.5FM, WVZC-LP that is leading a Hispanic format from South Toledo. I heard English on a very distorted 1520 yesterday, not Hispanic?

Off the record, 1520 would have been like 2004 WCWA with live and local talent, call-in, mostly CWay music.
