Re: LMFAO at Kmart!!!!

Plate Cap. What interesting reading! I'd always heard the story of Vlasic pickles. Certainly, remember the old commercials. Nice articles. Cannot find, but remember Lambert, when K-Mart closed stores in Canada, he didn't want to talk to media that day. A company can die, lives are changed, families ...

Re: I also oppose self-driving vehicles

Saw this on a TV station newspage.

Unreal! A GPS Blocker that can/will block cars, airplanes, etc. Unreal.

"gps jammers" Put that into a search engine. I think I'll be driving my car a long time!

Re: Ford soon will make one car

Years ago, when I asked the salesman why Ford was dumping the Ranger. "Ford is going to push you into an F 150."

They didn't.

No, lo & behold, the Ranger comes back in 2019.

I really feel disillusioned by this decision.

Re: Ford soon will make one car

I've always had Fords since 1986 after problems with a GM Buick. Never again. I feel Ford is a making a big mistake. Things are cyclical. We go from cheap to expensive gas, good to bad economies. According to other reports, GM is next to dump some cars. http://autoweek.com/article/car-news/report-fo...

Re: Sov Comm Failing

Might this explain why 1240 WIAN is/has not been on in almost one year? (WIKI does not show WIAN as owned by Sovereign. It is.)
WYSS is a shadow of what it was. Now mornings are piped in, 7pm thru 6am is piped in. Jackson Blue. The two midday jocks are voice-tracked.

No weather person at ABC 10

Since early March, now Ulises Garcia, piped in from Alpena,MI, is gone and the news person now reads the forecast. TV6 and Local3 both have meteorologists. An obvious cost-cutting measure. I enjoyed his forecasting and explaining how or why things happen. Kinda sad. Some good people have walked thou...

Re: Vicky Crystal leaving TV6

20 or so years ago, when she was at 1320-WDMJ, I called the station and had a question. They put me though, and Vicki answered. I said "oh, you're the girl on the radio." Very, very polite, kind.

I'm sure she won't miss the early hours!

Fastest ever driven?

Everyone who has ever been with me has always said I was an excellent driver. They feel safe. Even to this day, but, I drive over the limit, easily. Going back to my pimple faced teenaged years when I was so proud to have a new license and a new car (AMC/Gremlin, don't laugh) I was going from state ...

When the government has this, you can guess the government will have you doing 55 in a 55 zone, 65 in a 65, 15 in a school zone. Everything will be monitored. I don't trust this.

Re: WGN-AM Lands the White Sox

I have always enjoyed the banter between Ed Farmer and Darrin Jackson. The science of the game, humor.

My guess is there's more than a few vacation properties in Michigan. WGN has a way better signal than WLS.

Re: One stopset per hour. The new norm?

Actually, both stations have been doing the same format for 3 years or more. The spots basically run at :50 for 5 minutes, then "back into another hour..." To me, it's interesting as heck as the 60's had Bill Drake with stopsets at :06 :15: :22 :36 40 NEWS and :52, then the Q format of the 70's KCBQ...

Very, very nice. All of these! The "it's 8pm at WJML or WTIQ..." seems to be a ripoff of WOKY Milwaukee at the time. "It's 8 p m at WOKY Milwaukee." I know 1150 WGOW Chatanooga did this same thing, as did (then) 1150 WYNE Appleton and (then) 1590 WQTC Two Rivers. TIQ & QXO seemed to be clones of KHQ...

Well, WIAN has easily been off since last June! Have called the station a few times. The people answering are polite and it seems like a l-o-n-g time to wait for a transmitter part. Too, sadly, 1320-WDMJ is losing its western coverage area! In talking with someone who answered, he said people were n...

Comments are interesting too.

Still, sad, in my opinion.
