Re: Beautiful music stations

The classic example of easy listening, in the 1960's was WLDM 95.5 (WKQI today) just hours and hours of easy listening albums. It was so laid back they used to have several seconds of silence between the songs. That would be horrors today! WLDM, WJR-FM and WWJ-FM were all next to each other on the ...

Re: Prominent Local Advertisers on N. Mi. TV

Thanks, Mark.

Anything in Cadillac? Big Rapids? Manistee/Ludington? Mt. Pleasant? Houghton Lake? The Soo?
I'm mainly interested in locally-owned businesses, not necessarily national franchises.

Re: Al Allen wrote a book

I can honestly say he's the reason I became a Fox 2 morning viewer, he and Alan Lee.

FWIW, I think Robin Murdoch does a fine job as the current live reporter early in the morning on Fox 2.

Any Suspected Cause of 9&10 Fire?

I keep reading the local press, but have so far seen nothing on the subject, not even realistic speculation.

Prominent Local Advertisers on N. Mi. TV

Who are currently the most prominent local advertisers on Northern Michigan television? I've been out of the market for many years now and would be most interested to know.

An interesting fact tossed about recently on 97.1 was that Michigan is only 9-9 in its last 18 games. An accurate number but here is a couple more accurate numbers....

I was never much of a Burt Reynolds fan, but I did like him in (and everything about) Deliverance! I can't recall ever seeing Smokey and the Bandit.

I've witnessed a producer and director get into a 20 minute shouting match in mid show. The TD just left camera 2 up the whole time.
Any juicy details to share? :twisted:

Re: Great Media Fights

Those of a certain age will remember the fisticuffs between CBS's then-all-everything sportscaster Brent Musburger and his NFL Today sidekick Jimmy the Greek. I believe it happened on a Saturday and on the next day's NFL Today broadcast, Musburger held up his pointer wearing a boxing glove. :lol I f...

Re: So...Detroit Tigers

I'm an avid watcher of Tigers games on FSD because I love baseball and love my team, for better or worse. Those here who complain about Mario & Rod have no idea how lucky we are/were to have them if one has sampled local broadcasts from other markets -- something I've heard and read often from out-o...

I miss the occasional female perspective on things; it kind of kept the rest of us (okay, many of us :razz) on an even keel. Where'd all the ladies run off to? Are there any left? Some of the more memorable ladies were Church Lady, Mary Riley, Charlotte the Harlot, and Mscranky angel, who had the m...

Re: What was the very first computer you ever owned?

Kaypro 4/84 Marketed as portable, but more like luggable. I did get a lot of use out of it, however, especially using WordStar.

Re: 2018 Detroit Tigers

Looks like the Dixon Machado era at 2B is over before it even had a chance to begin -- he was DFA'd again. With all the trade talk over Iglesias, I figured Machado was destined to return to his soundest defensive position of SS and perhaps a reinvigoration at the plate. With Goodrum coming through o...

Re: Verlander and J.D. Martinez

Wow, I had to double-check this, but ex-Tiger infielder Eugenio Suarez, traded to the Reds in the deal for Alfredo Simon, is batting .308 and tied for the National League lead in RBIs with 63! :eek
So, not one, but TWO ex-Tigers each lead their respective leagues in knocking in runs. :red
