Re: CKWW 580 Adding More 80’s

Speaking of oldies outfits adding 80's music... My local WCCW (107.5 FM) has been adding 80's music for quite a while to their 70's-dominated playlist. They're called "The 70's Station" for cripes sake! Early 80's cuts I don't mind, but that drum machine/synth-slathered mush has got to go, it's like...

Re: Blarney Stone Broadcasting and Roy Henderson

Today, I heard ads from a car dealer in West Branch and a restaurant in Grayling on 101.9. The two cities aren't even in WLDR's local coverage!

My guess is that they're doing this because Blarney Stone is based out of Grayling, but what do I know? It still doesn't make sense!

Why is there 8...count them...8 threads on this station when it's nothing more than a format change???
Because it's that rare moment when people are appreciative of something on here. Before this, most of the Detroit threads were complaints about other stations (among other things).

Re: Morning Show Anouncement On 98.7?

I swear, the 98.7 threads are everywhere. But it's better than having all those threads complaining about 106.7 or some other station.

Re: Holy Winter Tropo Blasters!

I'm not getting anything special where I live, just the usual common tropo from the Tri-Cities, GR and Lansing, plus a couple of Detroiters (including the new Breeze)

Re: Blarney Stone Broadcasting and Roy Henderson

Where is 99.3 broadcasting from (I'm guessing somewhere in/near Traverse City)? I got a 99.3 playing Van Hagar's Right Now last night coming home from a basketball game. That song is not something WOWN in Shawano would play. How much are 99.3 and 100.3 delayed? I tried checking 100.3, but it was al...

Blarney Stone Broadcasting and Roy Henderson

This could be a recreation of a lost thread, but call it what you will. Let's talk about the latest news about Blarney Stone and their new stations. As of right now: - 99.3 (finally with better sound quality) and 100.3 (with a weaker signal) are simulcasting (with a h*** delay, though). - 92.3 brief...

Re: WXYZ EBS Test On youtube

Cool find indeed. I myself have yet to find any EBS/EAS tests from my local stations, but I have a severe storm warning bug on a tape from 2005, if that matters much.

Re: 98.7 Song Requests

For some unknown reason, AC and 1970's formats have totally ignored Olivia Newton-John. She had thirteen top five songs in the US, and was heard on the radio almost daily for years, but today she has no airplay. Well, I do hear "Have You Never Been Mellow" and "You're The One That I Want" up north ...
