Re: Two major stories the Detroit media seem to be ignoring

I will strongly consider purchasing my next vehicle, and it most likely will not be a Ford. I'm leaning Mazda, Toyota or Acura. I suggest you consider Subaru as well. My 2004 WRX (original owner for almost 18 years) has over 582K miles on it. My 2006 Baja (bought used) has over 208K. Both are good ...

Re: Two major stories the Detroit media seem to be ignoring

I did not like the 2014-ish redesign even though it saw sales success; looked too much like a big Ford Focus and too feminine. My wife bought a 2014 right off the lot. It was a piece of junk with getting countless recall notices, so many we lost count. She traded it in a year later. Combining it wi...

Re: New Desktop

For a place to buy, Micro Center (real close to I-75/14 Mile in Madison Heights) is where I go. They have reasonable priced name brand refurbs that last for years.

Here's a link to the store: https://www.microcenter.com/site/stores ... ights.aspx.

Re: Partial daytime AM Band Scan during power outage in Tawas City

I still can hear AM 630 CFCO Country station (Chatham, Ontario) in Sanford, MI!!!! When I worked in Niles, MI, I would get CFCO in stereo in the morning in Three Rivers. Shortly west of there, they would drop out. At that point, I would switch over to WGTO 910 (Cassopolis) and listen to oldies in s...

Find the Red Green episode where he connects two K-cars together. One of my favorites.
Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-JhnIcZ6UQ

Re: My Christmas Present Has Arrived!

Picked up an AM in Iowa city on 1630. Listened to it for over an hour with sustained reception. I checked the station specs and saw that their nighttime ERP is all of 1KW. That's pretty impressive for a stick 600+ miles away with that little juice. Ah yes, KCJJ. I stopped by the station a few years...

Re: Your favorite Detroit airchecks from back in the day

A station that used to boom in at night into the motorcity from the windy city I listened to Michigan native John Landecker on WLS 890 . John at that time had 5 million listeners across a large portion of the US and Canada every evening. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kW_0RIcshz0&t=803s Another on...

Re: bidet and McReason.

It's hard to believe both of those idiots are gone. And in such short order, one after the other. I had become so weary of both of them, I had been seriously considering deleting my own account. Now, I think I might hang around for a while longer. Please do stay...I really enjoy reading your posts.

Re: You Be The Judge

Not seeing the contract, I'm guessing there is a clause about not performing illegal activity on Company property. By violating the providential law regarding 14-day quarantine when she came into work, she did so illegally and is subject to being fired.

Ex-employee will not be coming back.

Classic Country is going to be the new format according to insiders. Ha!
If going to a music format, I hope they will return to AM stereo. When they were oldies, I could get them in well in the St. Johns area in full stereo.
