Re: WTCM Gold

Really really loving the new station.I'm probably in the minority,but I like the sound of this being on an a AM station. One change i would like,a little higher percentage of 90s tunes including some of those that weren't necessarily chart toppers. I agree. Been listening to it off and on and am ge...

I assume the WCCW calls are still in place as WTCM is assigned to 580. Guessing the former is mentioned only in the legal ID.
Yes, that's what they are doing! I get the reasoning behind the "WTCM" branding, but that does seem a bit confusing when their legal ID is still WCCW.

Re: 106.7 on the air?

Now they've added W252DA Petoskey to their IDs. I tuned to 98.3 but didn't get anything but interference from 98.5. I'm close enough I thought I'd be able to get that frequency, but either they're not actually on the air at 98.3 or I'm too far away.

Re: 106.7 on the air?

The ID now says "This is WSRT Gaylord and WFDX Atlanta" and sure enough, 92.5 is playing the same lo-fi music as 106.7.

Re: 106.7 on the air?

Thanks for the song/artist. The music is so generic I almost wondered if it was not just computer generated nut computer composed. Interesting to know that it is actually recorded by an artist. I kind of like it -- I've actually been listening to WSRT quite a bit! Couple more days and I'll be tired ...

Re: Environment Canada to end weather radio.

Weather radio still seems quite important to me. I don't leave my cell phone on at night but still want weather warnings. I figure during the day, I'm probably going to notice a severe storm coming in, but not necessarily at night. Therefore, I keep a weather alert radio in my bedroom. There's defin...

Re: 99.3 wqan and 92.3 wbnz

Interesting, thanks for the recordings! I kind of like their mix of music, though I'll agree its not hard rock. (but then again, I like WQON's mix, too!)

Re: WWTV: 9.5 = QVC & 9.6 = HSN

I wondered what they were up to when they added 9.5 and 9.6. So what's in it for WWTV? Do they get some kind of kickback from QVC and HSN?

Nice! Thanks for posting. I've been looking for a recording of their broadcast from that era for a while now. So glad to finally have a recording of Jim Kosek on Fox 33!

Re: Is radio relevant anymore in a crisis?

I am disappointed at the lack of local, timely news on the radio. This seems like a good time for radio to shine, but they don't seem to be doing anything out of the ordinary. I'm not aware of any specials, extended news broadcasts, etc. Maybe the ad revenue just isn't there and stations just don't ...

Re: Covid-19 Case now reported in Northern MI- Be Safe and Cautious Out There!

Has anyone thought about recording news broadcasts, etc.? Might be fun to watch 20 years from now. I enjoy going back and listening to the few tapes I recorded on 9/11.

Re: Covid-19 Case now reported in Northern MI- Be Safe and Cautious Out There!

In other news, TV anchors now sitting (or standing) further away from each other during newscasts... I noticed that, too. Thought that was kind of silly. Those anchors have been together all along, and probably share facilities at the station, etc. But, maybe its good to set a good example on the a...
