Re: Channel 955 may be in trouble with the FCC.

"white noise ... "

You're already hearing white noise. Songs by white bands trying to sound black. And it's noise.

Re: Roop Raj: social justice warrior

Roop needs to stop taking himself so seriously. Sticks and stones . . . ? (I'm sure, since he's 100 pct American, born here, etc etc, he's heard that one.)

Re: Holy Shnikies! What’s wrong with that Marysville council candidate?

There's also no truth to the rumor that you can't listen to WSAQ (107.1, country) unless you have a Bridge Card. I asked the ground people that one year at the Roof-Sit (Chuck Santoni, W-OLD, on the roof of Birchwood Mall every September collecting donations for charity). They said not the case. Tha...

Re: Holy Shnikies! What’s wrong with that Marysville council candidate?

A survey made a few years ago named Port Huron America's 1109th best small city. Which is really unfair. They have two new Starbucks and a Panda Express, and that should be enough to, if the survey was made today, get them at least into the low 900s. IMO the most remarkable thing -- since this is a ...

Re: Big changes in just released June ratings survey; WJR hits all-time record low

65, wow. They need someone the young people will like, who can get those millennials and Gen Zs to rediscover AM radio. Say, a thirtyish female, maybe a trans, at least a lesbian and definitely out, who giggles a lot and frequently doesn't come to work (calls in "sick"), forcing her producer to cove...

Re: Two AM 1210’s

WJNL is an infrequent visitor just before sunset in Lakeport. I remember KGYN as a regular on Monday mornings when WCAU was off. The other one I've heard is KOKK in Huron SD, that's easy to log if you hear baseball PBP under WPHT. The Minnesota Twins web site still lists them as a radio affiliate (d...

Re: The most viral video now? MLive!

No, and the writer also can't be bothered with sentence structure (note the excessive use of dashes to avoid it), consistently capitalizing the councilman's last name, or using an apostrophe to make it possessive. And BTW "First Amendment" when it refers to the one in the US Constitution is a proper...

WTGV Sandusky during Tigers games

No TOH legal IDs (noticed this in all three games of the Blue Jays weekend series and again tonight, Monday). Tonight vs. Yankees: weather forecast ("Judy Coy in the WTGV weather center ... ") playing every 15 mins or so, on top of the game. One Saturday during spring training: no game at all, just ...

Re: Channel 4 in the pre-WDIV days

I remember their legal ID, ""WWJ-TV, The Detroit News," from when I became aware of who owned the local radio and TV stations. And that, in each hour's Detroit News daily TV listings, and in the Sunday TV supplement, 4 always came first, followed by 2 and 7, then Toledo and the UHFs.

The Pretenders "Brass In Pocket:" " ... gonna use my fingers . . . gonna use my, my, my, vagination ... " "I've been driving, deeper leaning . . .

"Seventh Son:" "Heal the sick, raise the dead, and make a little dust talk out of their head ...

Re: Misheard Song Lyrics

Herman's Hermits, "Must To Avoid:"

"She's a must to a boy ..... "

And I remember hearing Dick Biondi on WCFL mention the same incorrect lyric and quote the correct one. So many others no doubt heard the same thing.
