Re: 105.3 Hot FM

105.3 indeed is out of order, this was what I got in my 1998 Oldsmobile 88.

That'll get denied for sure, Why not use 94.1?

Re: Alt 101.3 on the way.

The biggest problem with what I remember of X96.1 circa late 2008 early 2009 was it was slow to getting new music rotated and whenever new music became older they'd still tout it as "new". I can still Imagine 101.3 being alternative, I think KLQ garnered similar ratings in it's last days like 101.3 ...

Re: Oak Creek / Milwaukee Bandscan

That sucks about those translators, I wonder what a bandscan would like on a portable in a high rise like Hancock tower in chicago on a day like that.

Re: Classic country AM 1380 is no more

I only listened occasionally but I bet most of 1380s listener base also listened to 94.1 which comes in okay but not indoors.

Re: Fall 2017 GR Ratings

Then you have 96.1 and 107.3 merely existing.

I agree with MW about 105.3 being put onto 107.3, too bad Hanlon couldn't think of that when he axed KLQ.

Classic country AM 1380 is no more

The classic country format on WGLM-AM 1380 Greenville is no more, now it is simply a simulcast of 106.3

Re: Subaru SXM Radio

My wife drives a 2017 Subaru Outback. Nice car, but the SXM radio is annoying. Anytime the radio is left on an eXplicit Language (XL) station, the next time the car is started the radio automatically retunes to SXM's promo channel, as if the radio is not activated. It's some kind of nanny mode. She...

Re: ALT 106.7 Detroit's New Alternative

Bell would be wise to make 93.9 more gold rock based like how 93 XRT in Chicago sounds.

Re: ALT 106.7 Detroit's New Alternative

I looked at their playlist, It looks a lot like 101.1 WKQX In Chicago's, basically 89x without cancon.

This frequency should just go silent, it's just cursed.

Re: Major Shakeup at Bell Radio Windsor

Blackburn should buy 88.7 at the first opportunity and put Kool FM on it and sell 100.7 probably to like UCB Canada for a Windsor transmitter.
