Re: FCC wants to lower or drop ownership rules

Does it really matter? Several already do that through a creating/using subsidiary.

Northern MI is a prime example. Sinclair essentially owns 7&4 and 29&8. Heritage owns 9&10 and 32&45

Re: Misheard Song Lyrics

And how stoned or drunk were we all to hear some of those lyrics they way we did? lol

That said, I don't think anyone knows the lyrics to "blue"... my female cousins always sang it as "I'm blue, I'm in need of a guy"

I didn't begin on the air on WCBY and WCBY-FM until 1973 at 15 years old. Do the math, I'm old now.

Good to hear from you, Del. Hope you and Mary are doing well :)

Re: SCREW YOU! I’M KEEPING YOU SAFE!!!

One of the things I noticed with regard to OTA coverage of storms, is that in GR, when a SVR goes out, most stations almost immediately go on air, until the warning has cancelled. Then they resume normal programming. Many stations for years did this as more of a courtesy. Now, it's become sort of 't...

If I think about it, I'll ask my dad regarding Del. Dad has known Del for well over 40 years.

Re: WBKB Footage Unearthed... At Last!

Didn't know Adam was at WBKB before 7&4. He was probably quite happy to not have to do weather as well as news.

Great find!

Re: SCREW YOU! I’M KEEPING YOU SAFE!!!

Would you rather be informed of the storm heading your direction, or be surprised?

If a station has news staff, they are obligated to warn people of any major issue that could be life/death.

WMKC is not a classic country station, not even close.

You are probably thinking of their low power sister station - an FM translator on 100.7 that rebroadcasts AM 1240 from Cheboygan.
Well, I did say I'm not a country fan... lol

Forgot WCBY is doing the classic country format.

I dropped cable TV seven years ago, got both Netflix and Hulu. Basically the same, with more options, and a LOT cheaper

Re: AM Radio 2020

Can't recall the frequency or call letters, but I do remember pulling in some AM station from Alabama up in Cheboygan on a clear summer nights. Some oldies station. The local AM 1240 WCBY would typically be picked up through phone lines. The occasional times my dad would do computer updates at night...
