I didn't even notice she was absent, to be perfectly honest.

Jason Carr and especially Sandra Ali have been doing a great job.
I like Sandra Ali a lot better. Rhonda comes on too strong, especially in the morning, with that awful laugh.

Re: Unique Radio Experiences

The summer of 1969 the first time I listened to Underground Rock or Progressive Rock (as it was called back then) on WABX 99.5 and WKNR 100.3 this was totally the best radio to hear in my youth I was only 14 years old and thought I discovered a new world of different music. I know what you're sayin...

Re: Unique Radio Experiences

I was listening to WKAR-AM one afternoon before heading into work. I forgot to turn off the radio before I left my apartment. When I got home after midnight, WWL from New Orleans was blasting in. There was nothing unusual about that, but Louisiana was getting blasted by a hurricane. Regular program...

Unique Radio Experiences

- Thanksgiving Weekend, 1971. I was living in Indianapolis, and the local rock station WNAP spent the whole weekend playing what used to be called album cuts and are now called deep cuts. They called it the Free Mind Weekend. This was at the end of a year that produced the albums Who's Next, Sticky ...

Re: Ron Cameron In One Word:

Ron should’ve said to the caller “you’re just guessing, I don’t want guessing,” something he’s wont to say to Matt when the preternaturally timid Matt weighs in on some subject. But since the caller was serving Ron’s interest in his jeremiad against Jim Price he was given free rein. On Saturday, Ro...

Matt needs to get better at anticipating the information that Ron wants. He often sounds surprised when Ron asks him a simple question like "What's the score?"

Re: Ron Cameron In One Word:

Something to the effect that his condition is worse than we’re being led to believe. That I wouldn't doubt. It had to of been a severe stroke if he's still in the hospital for over 2 weeks. Sucks. A spokesman for his company said it would take some time for him to recover. That sounded like a hint ...

Re: America's Rural Radio Stations Are Vanishing

When I travel, I like to spin the AM dial, to get a feel for the local areas I'm passing through. It often includes religious shows that sound more heartfelt and sincere than the big time TV preachers. One great experience was hearing some energetic country gospel music from a small station in north...

Re: How to program Wheels 106.7 by the hour

1. People want to hear the hits, and hear familiar voices play the hits. Studies have proven that time and time again. 2. No format has been tested to death moreso than AOR and the formats that followed it, including this iteration of classic rock. That's been going on since the 1970s, not 1996. 3....

Re: How Wheels 106.7 programs by the hour

My only request is that they play an AC/DC song at 4:45 every weekday afternoon. That pounding beat at high volume always helps me forget the work day.

Re: Mike Valenti and Juwan Howard

I'm neither a U of M fan or hater. The hire seems like a reach. Its like the Tigers handing the keys to inexperienced Brad Ausmus. That's a good comparison. In the days leading up to the hire, there were many articles about different Fab Five players endorsing Howard, which was no big surprise, but...

Mike Valenti and Juwan Howard

Last week I actually spent some time listening to Mike Valenti and enjoying it. He seemed to be the only sports person in town who wasn't bending over backwards to rationalize the hiring of Juwan Howard to be the next basketball coach at the University of Michigan. He was quite critical of it, and e...

Re: Ron Cameron In One Word:

...the recycling of addled octogenarians/nonagerians... That's pretty harsh. :) I find them very interesting, with a lot historical value. Maybe because I just turned 60. It's especially nice to hear how they made lives for themselves after their playing days, when they didn't make the kind of mone...

Elton John Countdown

On the way home from work, I listened to a WNIC/IHeart countdown of Elton John songs in anticipation of the new Elton John movie coming out tomorrow. It was great radio because Elton John himself was talking between the songs about the history of the songs and how they fit into his career. He talked...
