Re: LMFAO at Kmart!!!!

There will be only 15 Kmarts left in Michigan as of January 2018: Belleville, Charlevoix, Clio, Grayling, Greenville, Hastings, Lake Orion, Marine City, Marshall, Menominee, Midland, Oscoda, Richmond, Warren, and Waterford. Many of these communities either don't have any other big box stores or are...

Re: Songs that dont fit the radio format

WMTE-FM (in its Kool 101.5 days) aired House of Hair for a while in the 2010/2011 timeframe. In the same market, WWKR has aired a Christian music countdown show on Sunday mornings for years, which makes no sense at all especially when there are at least two CCM stations that cover most of K-Rock's c...

Re: If you were in charge of the local cable system

I believe all or nearly all cable systems in Metro Detroit offer CBET in high definition. WOW added it first; Comcast followed soon after. It has been on available in high definition on both systems for at least six or seven years. ...when it came to The Red Green Show, especially when it disappear...

Re: WOMC Christmas Music

The vast majority of Metro Detroit cannot pick up a clean signal from 100.7/95.1 Cool FM or 93.5 WHMI. Sucks to be you guys! Move to Ann Arbor (MW, I realize these are your old stomping grounds :blink ) Not only do I have clean access to WHMI, but Q106 and WIOT come in fairly clean. When I return b...

Re: The Great O'Kornholio!

OKorn is a MAC or Sun Belt QB stuck in the wrong league. I still believe in Harbaugh but year 3 is a disappointment to say the least. Next year needs to see an 11 win season and beat a couple good teams in the process or I will be seriously worried. Speight is transferring out after this season. No...

Re: LMFAO at Kmart!!!!

Stopped at the Belleville Kmart (I-94 and Rawsonville Rd) today and it was actually well stocked and had quite a few customers. It seems like this one is probably one of the best performing Kmarts left, likely due to its location. There are no other large stores of any kind within three to four mile...

Re: I like 106.7 The D again

Heard a very interesting version of Rock Me Amadeus on The D tonight which didn't have any of the rapping (in German) of the original. Looking at Wikipedia, that song has at least 15 official versions. This version also had a brief background of Mozart's life which I had never heard before.

Re: 2017 Lions Season

Can anybody think of a good reason to go for 4th and goal down 1 in the third after being stuffed and pushed back the previous play? Then they had no play and turned it over... I can think of one - the only one that matters - DETROIT LIONS. Enough said. Watching 20+ years of ineptitude has become a...

Re: LMFAO at Kmart!!!!

It's all over but the reminiscing for KMart. "Last Christmas"... The local store here has been dwindling inventory for 2 years, and back-filling with some Sears product. There's a Kmart still open about three miles from where I moved to, and I'll have to swing by in the next few weeks before they l...

Re: Detroit TV on Cable in Flint

I've got Charter at the Fenton office. Stations in both markets are on the service, with the exception of one Flint/Saginaw station are represented. Whatever that station is, it certainly must be strange as Fenton is in the Flint DMA with the exception of a couple of residential cul-de-sacs that ar...

Even though 32 is/was off, FOX programming is still available on 9.2 with MeTV on 9.3. Not sure if MeTV is on 45 or 10 way up north.

Michigan still has a shot of getting to the Big Ten title game, but a lot has to happen: Michigan has to beat Wisconsin and Ohio State Penn State and Michigan State have to drop at least one game If all of this were to happen, Michigan and OSU would be tied at 7-2 in B1G play, with PSU and MSU at 6-...
