97.1 TOH ID

I've noticed they don't include "an Entercom station" in their ID anymore. They did on Friday but haven't heard it since.

Re: Unprofessional Fox 2 anchors this morning

Do you sit around waiting for things to happen on local TV or a second-rate sports section of a second-rate paper to transpose the scoring lines for a second-rate NBA team? Granted, you don't have to wait long for shit to happen in Detroit.

Exactly.

Baracee isn't going to come back here merely to host a throwaway show that almost no one watches.
Don't worry. Gaidica will be back soon enough, once he fails his 3rd ministry gig.

Re: WXYZ to expand morning newscast to 4 AM?

The locals here added a 4am several years ago. Then again, an area of 10 million people vs 4 million probably warrants it a lot more.

We're aware you're 64. You have mentioned it ad nauseum.

They're not going to an iHeart station when it conflicts with a CBS/Entercom station

He used to be on in the mornings and, even when the topics were ridiculously bad, it was at least decent background noise that would catch my attention every so often.

97.1 Weekend Mornings = Painful

I can't think of anything worse than the brokered airtime on 97.1 on the weekends. Between the "Hire It Done" and Capital Mortgage shows, I think I'd rather listen to replays of Karsch and Anderson. Good God almighty.

Re: Jay Timko Gone from D&M Podcast

Yeah, he didn't leave with any bad blood. It was just a rough go of it for him. He works a full time job and then would go to Ferndale (from Wayne County) for hours each night.

Dream Cruise....Derp Derp

This thread is dedicated to discussing the dumbest aspect of the Dream Cruise coverage this weekend. Will it be Glenda Lewis in her stupid poodle skirt? Dave "Left Eye" Rexroth in his white t-shirt and greased back hair? Or an interview with a rando white trash spectator?

Jay Timko Gone from D&M Podcast

Citing time demands, Jay Timko has left the D&M Podcast. With that, personally, I've noticed a big drop in the quality of the shows from a technical point of view. The drops aren't being hit as cleanly. It may not seem like a big thing, but that show is so heavily dependent on drops that it is notic...

Re: Terry Foster on Drew and Mike Podcast

I don't think I'd ever tune into a Foster podcast to be honest, but I think it might not be a bad idea for Drew to promote it and make them (Maz and Foster) part of the Drew podcast network. The infrastructure is there. That studio is top notch. I'm sure it could bring in some decent ad revenue.

Re: What is The Bounce Exactly?

Thank you for the thoughtful response.

I did hear a few songs tagged "strong songs" and they seemed to be played once an hour and were mainly mainstream hip-hop from 1990-1993 ("Mama Said Knock You Out"). I think expanding that would help tremendously with burn.

What is The Bounce Exactly?

I'm trying to figure out what they're trying to be. I heard a Kendrick Lamar song from 2013 on there the other day. Not exactly "throwback." Their imaging seems to be targeting an urban demo. Am I correct in that? Seems like they should be targeting 34-50 year old women, and thus playing more early-...
