Re: Doug Podell

Great opening for a CC and 106.7 if they want to play with the big boys. Boom Boom Savelli mid day, the Doc aft drive, would have loved to see Kramer ex IOT mornings or a return of Drew&Mike plus Classic Rock that Really Rocks make a return.............this could be pulled off imo. shit, Doug could...

Does anyone know the truth on his separation? Usually, the Beasleys aren't known to push someone good like this out.
Are you serious? I believe I eloquently listed above, SEVERAL "good" people they've already shit-canned.

:rollin please share what you heard! :rollin Nothing juicy, just 20 minutes of show prep, including the editing of the dreaded "phoners" this show uses to put the audience to sleep. What's amazing to me is that nobody in the Golden Tower heard this. Somewhere, at that big radio station in the sky, ...

Re: Doug Podell

Let them flame out. Doug may be a bit of a stooge at times, but he was OUR stooge. The carpetbaggers at Beasley apparently have no regard for local talent, familiar voices that we all know and enjoy. Steve Kostan, Karen Savelly, Pam Rossi, and now Doug. Seems like I'm forgetting someone. It's a sham...

Memo to Guy Gordon

I greatly enjoyed hearing your show being put together this afternoon, during the last half hour of Rush. Suffice it to say, that was very enlightening. A little friendly advice: before you start putting those "phoners" together, you may want make sure whichever studio you are working in isn't "pott...

Re: Status of WSRT?

There's a rumor that the sale is still on and Blarney Stone is trying to only get the stations and not the transmitter sites. Now, that's really a dumbbell move. Towers, if they have paying tenants, are a great source of supplemental income. In a tourist market like Traverse City/Petoskey etc, that...

Re: Charges Coming Monday In Mueller Investigation

Still waiting for the "Russia" connection. The only people interested in this are the moonbats on the left, media fancyboys like Don Lemon and Chuck Todd, and the remaining 4 or 5 guys out there who actually believed John Kasich or Jeb Bush were valid candidates.

Re: WWCK Morning Show

I've got a solution - move Mike & Stephanie to Gnash. 95.1 is an utter disaster. Scrap the low rated, failing national morning show, move Mike & Stephanie there, fix the horrendously bad audio processing, and bring back the "B95" branding. Not sure about Mike & Steph, but I wouldn't be shocked to s...

Re: Channel 7 cannot get even simple facts straight

Montcalm County, eh? Doesn't surprise me one bit. Some years ago, I had to explain to a reporter (who I won't name) where Romulus is. What's amazing to me is this reporter still works in the market, continues to get hired again and again, and always sounds a bit confused on-air. Detroit should not b...

Re: Ludington & Big Rapids area radio observations

The first and only time I heard 103.9, it sounded like the the computer had gone haywire. I could be wrong, but it almost sounded like they were using a bad internet connection, either for programming, or the STL. There simply is not enough potential revenue in these areas to support so many station...

Mike Dewine(AG), Jon Husted(SOS), Mary Taylor(Lt.gov), and Jim Renacci(congressman. Dewine is like The Jerry Brown of Ohio, he's held almost every office. Kasic...

I concur, on all points. I nearly spit out my coffee when Lew was bragging about his other business, a line of glossy magazines for the high roller, upper income crowd, only to have the interviewer ask "Print? Isn't that a dying business model?"

99.9 FM Soul of the 70s with Billy T

Just discovered this great specialty show on Soul 99.9. Sounds fantastic. Not sure who "Billy T" is, but I'll be listening. Right now, he's playing old clips from Soul Train. Stuff I haven't heard in years.

SiriusXM should send a email of thx to Clear Channel as they have probably added 100's of new subs from the metro area since the D flipped formats and rock fans have nothing left on the Detroit FM dial to tune into. The one time great rock radio of the motorcity now has zero morning shows worth tun...

I'm still chuckling over the fact that they feel the need to pay Fred Jacobs to pick the music. Seriously? If you need that much "help" to program a station up north, you're probably in the wrong business. I figured ol' Fred would be too busy to sit around making music logs, with his latest cash cow...
