Re: WTVN 610

Where exactly *is* the CKLW transmitter? Or CKWW? I remember driving into Windsor in the late 80's to early 90's, just outside the tunnel a ways I saw an large, odd array of five or six really, really short towers, probably like 75' or less. They were freshly painted red and white and appeared to b...

Re: Daylight Savings Time, Keep it or get rid of it...

I can remember when the Detroit big three used the mountain time network feeds in the summer, when the area was EST all year (the 1966 act allowed individual states to opt out of DST). One night, all three networks were interrupted by a disastrous flash flood in Rapid City, SD. My guess is that all ...

Re: Daylight Savings Time, Keep it or get rid of it...

Picking up where I left off...... If the time zones were to be strictly determined by math, the only Michiganders in the ETZ would be east of a line running from Jeddo Rd/Lakeshore Rd to Marine City (82¤30' W). Years ago, I drew a map, that would replace four time zones with three (Western, Heartlan...

Re: Daylight Savings Time, Keep it or get rid of it...

Hot and sunny here. I didn’t waste any time getting sunburned. I’m near Naples. It’s sunny, sunny, sunny, then SLAM dusk and darkness. Never noticed it like that at home. Too bad I’m not here next week after the time change. At the Equator, it's even faster. At higher latitudes (North or South) it'...

Re: Daylight Savings Time, Keep it or get rid of it...

Absolutely roll back both of the extensions that were sold cash-and-carry to the special interest groups. DST should start the last Sunday in April and end the day before Labor Day (creating a 73-hour weekend) Or just get rid if it. Of note is that Michigan is on Double DST. All of Michigan was in t...

Re: Day & Night at WDTW (AM)

Every morning at 6:00 AM, I was either asleep or busy.

This morning I was up and WDTW went from night to day pattern at 6:00, just as I predicted.

Thus their pattern changer is working correctly. But its clock is 45 minutes fast.

Re: Hudson Tower (Building Under Construction) & Initial FM Collocation Analysis

Getting back to the proposed construction at the former J.L. Hudson site: I doubt Detroit's FMs would benefit from moving to Downtown Detroit. Such a move would put the signal further away from Oakland and Livingston counties, where the target listeners live (True, the signal along Woodward would st...

Re: Thanks for working here! Here’s a grilled cheese sandwich!

Parents in Saginaw are sure giving their kids original names.

Are HL101 and LL101 the son and grandson of R101, who tragically and suddenly died in an accident in France?

Re: 106.7 to flip shortly, RIP FAULT

https://1067wllz.iheart.com/ 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. AM 1310, La Zeta. Yes, the name means "The Z", tho...

Re: Day & Night at WDTW (AM)

It's now March 1. WDTW's assigned time to switch from day to night pattern is 2345 UTC (6:45 pm E S T). They went from day to night pattern 8 minutes ago, 1800 EST. 45 minutes early, just like February. According to the FCC site, they should be going to day pattern at 6:45 AM tomorrow. Betcha they g...

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

It should have been W4 Country instead of Wheelz, but whatever. Country is over done in Detroit, Look how many Country stations in the Metro Detroit Area, WYCD 99.5, CJWF 95.9, WDRQ 93.1, WWWW 102.9, WSAQ 107.1 and CFCO 630/92.9 did I miss any? As for CFCO, I would say their format is Farm instead ...

Re: Should Detroit be home to an ABC and NBC O&O too?

We all see how well the CBS O&O is going - not even a suitable newscast- compare that to WJBK circa 1979 when their news, as a CBS station, could compete along side Bonds, Kelly, Turner, Ackerman. Well, WXYZ was an ABC O&O in 1979, and they were tops in the Detroit market. WJBK is doing great as a ...

I believe that WHLX AM 1590 and FM 92.7 will be Classic Country as of 9AM tomorrow.
In a way, that would make sense, as they were country in the past.

Their call sign was WSMA. I always wondered if they were trying to imply that they were like WSM.
