Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

Vegas has them at 67.5 wins. I’d say that’s actually a good one, I think I’ll put my money on just over. Still have them in 4th, just ahead of KC.

The thing to watch about this team is how well will those prospects brought in during the 2017 blowout progress.

Re: 106.7 to flip shortly, RIP FAULT

It’s a shame 89X doesn’t subscribe. I know a radio pro on one of the other boards was saying they average around a 1.5 in Detroit, pretty much what they’ve been running since Dave & Chuck left. No idea about Windsor, since last I checked, Windsor didn’t even release a book due to low turnout. Honest...

Re: 106.7 to flip shortly, RIP FAULT

Stopnswop, With Cumulus dealing away WNSH in NYC, are they still running the Nash brand as a national brand? Meaning, are they’re going to keep failing stations around to keep market coverage? If not, perhaps flips could be coming to some Nash brands? That said, I’m not sure a WKQX-type station, as ...

As expected, it’s Classic Rock.

Adios, Alt 106.7. I tried to like the station, but the playlist was horribly tight and it didn’t sound local to Detroit at all. I do hope the WDTW call letters end up somewhere else soon.

Re: Fault 106.7 appears to have one foot in the grave

Except there’s no shortage of research that goes to show the 55+ crowd isn’t as inclined to buy off of radio ads. Who do you think runs the advertising agencies? It’s probably not millennials.

Re: Following Out-of-Market Sports Teams Difficult

That’s why I gladly pay for the SiriusXM streaming package. I can stream all the Tigers games on my phone. I moved to Cleveland a few years ago for work and it’s also nice because of the Tigers are playing the Indians, I can watch the game and stream so I don’t have to listen to the Cleveland bias d...

Re: Dave and Chuck The Freak

You’re right. It’s not June anymore. But the ratings for WRIF have been in the same range and every other day part book I’ve seen in the last half decade has had them ahead, I’d say it’s pretty safe to say Dave and Chuck still lead by a mile. If you insist on something more current, you can always p...

Time to pay up.
I’ve never liked the show, but WRIF basically changed morning shows and never missed a beat, ratings-wise.

Cumulus makes a major sale!

https://radioinsight.com/headlines/174511/cumulus-sells-six-to-emf-swaps-with-entercom-in-new-york-indianapolis/ Some thoughts: 1. I didn’t think many operators piecemeal stations out in sales, barring rimshots. This was an interesting move for that reason. 2. WRQX was the #5 biller in DC just a few...

Re: 94.5 The Q - new format is Adult Album Alternative

So, I decided to stream The Q while running some errands the other day. I like it. So far, it sounds like a jock less version of “Ann Arbor’s 107.1”. AAA does seem too niche to make too much of ratings sense, perhaps Alternative would have been more mass appeal, but I think this station plays enough...

Re: Blame the victim

A couple of months ago, my wife made a large thing of chili and we took it down to our local precinct for the police working there. We wanted to share our appreciation of what they do to keep our community safe and they really appreciated it too.

Re: Alt 102.3/99.5 Fort Wayne

I listened to this while visiting my mother, who was working in Fort Wayne a few years back. Really good station- much better music mix than the iHateMedia junk here. This, and WKQX, are my go-to streams if I’m in an Alternative mood.

Re: Cops: the corrupt referees

What are your thoughts on pineapple cottage cheese? I used to have to actually buy cottage cheese and pineapples separately and assemble them together. Now I can go to the store and buy the two already mixed. Get this- it’s the same cost as buying regular cottage cheese at my local grocery store!

Re: “Baby It’s Cold Outside” RAPE!

I feel that these other holiday songs must also be removed as they are offensive as well. Do so immediately. 1. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus: subjecting minors to softcore porn 2. The Christmas Song: Open fire? Pollution. Folks dressed up like Eskimos? Cultural appropriation 3. Holly Jolly Christ...
