Re: Sarah Sanders is Done

Not making fun. Nothing fun about her - or her lying for a constant liar. Stating facts - regarding her everything. Disgusting down to her bones. Permeated with cold-hearted corruption. A glutton for goading, degrading, and trying to gag good reporters. And by so doing - crashing against The First ...

Re: Early Spring Tropo Reports

The FM band was going crazy here in Washtenaw County last night. Many Detroit stations and several locals were getting thrashed by Indiana, Toronto and even Chicago. Here are some highlights, all received with an Eton Grundig III with factory antenna and/or portable Insignia HD receiver. 88.1 WVPE E...

Re: I've only listened to WOMC for 15 minutes today, yet...

I actually heard Mary J. Blige's "Family Affair" on WOMC a few days ago. So it's official... WOMC and 105.1 The Bounce have at least one song in common. Are you serious?? I LOVE that song. However.. I don't expect WOMC's target audience to love it. I'm excited to see how much lower they can make th...

Re: The Planet 96.3 mid 90s

If you visit the American Radio History website, you can find plenty of Planet 96.3 current playlists from that era in issues of Radio & Records. They continued to report as a CHR for their first couple of months as Planet before switching over to the Alternative panel. They became a Hot AC reporter...

Re: WWTV-FM / WWAM Aircheck from 1969

I enjoyed that Fun and Games song. Looking at the ARSA website it appears to have chiefly been a hit on the West Coast. However, there's also a WZZM 95.7 survey that has "Grooviest Girl in the World" listed at #31, so obviously it sold a few copies around West Michigan as well. Incidentally, I found...

Re: Bell wants to shut down more CTV transmitters

I remember reading Windsor had one of the highest OTA viewship numbers in the country, probably because of Detroit and Toledo. If memory serves, Windsor carries all of the Detroit stations except WADL and WPXD. Not sure if they carry the Toledo stations. Toledo stations are not carried in Windsor t...

Re: Why So Much 80’s?

We need a 90's channel now!!!!!! There's so much greatness from hair bands, to alternative, to pop, to rap, to country. That era was so diverse with all genres selling massive amounts of albums. Now, it's rap and pop on the charts. And no one station, even then, played ALL of that music. Look at th...

Easter Weekend Tropo

I missed the big opening early Easter morning, but still had some decent enhancement coming through late Sunday night into early Monday morning. Many of my warm weather tropo regulars from Fort Wayne, Lima, Defiance, etc. showed up here in Whitmore Lake. Some of my other catches included: 88.1 WVPE ...

Re: WNIC Or WOMC For 80’s

iHeart does do a good job programming their '80s format. It sounds more like the type of variety you'd actually hear on a CHR station back then. WOMC just seems to play the same 100 or so "safe" '80s songs you hear everywhere else, corporate rock with a few token Madonna and Michael Jackson titles. ...

Re: March Nielsen numbers are out for Detroit radio

I know, I know,, corporate radio and Cumeless would never do it, but I would love for a country station that went outside the box and played only real country. That is, a format that dives deep into the independent and off-music row scene in addition to playing major label country artists. A format...

Re: WODJ Jingle Package

Agreed Metal. I 96 was put on to flank WLHT. What it did was start to skim numbers from what was then an obviously weaker station, WOOD-FM or "Star". In the initial release of the ARB, WVTI took a number 1 share of 25-54 in the first month. Curiosity to be sure was part of it, but. The air talent w...

Re: Now that Midwest is fixing up its K'zoo cluster...

Is it me or is 92.9 sounding rather less contemporary in its music lately? They used to be very current-intensive, almost to the "Hot Hits" extreme. Now I'm hearing a lot of recurrents and gold stretching back a decade or so. They actually sound less contemporary than 97.5 now. And, no surprise, Fue...
