Re: Spectrum

Charter basic. Honestly, lots of outages.
My basic is $44. They have cut ch9/WGN, Weather channel and a few others. I "think" I have 17 channels plus tons of music channels.
Basically worthless. Rarely watch TV. Basically for relatives when they come over.

Re: 2018 Detroit Tigers

Off topic, a bit, but last night, was listening to Tigers then switching to 720-WGN to hear the Sox call.

Interesting and both presentations were quite different.

Almost equal, teamwise.

Re: Radio in the house

Like you, TT. Have two homes. 5 (!) radios in this living room. 3 in kitchen, 2 in the bedroom, etc..... I know the feeling. I have a cousin who babysits for her kids. No such thing as a radio in their homes. The kids are all in their 30's/40's. My cousin cannot believe it. Generational? If I was in...

Re: Razor 94.7 adding 104.7 WBJZ simulcast

I kinda liked B104. Woodward owns 105.7 WAPL, 94.7 WZOR, 95.3 WSCO + 2 translators, KZ104.3, KissFM simulcast on 92.9 WKZY and WHBY and 2 translators for that and now 104.7 WBJZ, which is simulcasting WZOR.

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.

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!
