Re: OTA channels MIA

Actually, WJMY's transmitter was on Southfield Rd in AP Unless they moved it later in the 60s, that is correct. They had actual programming briefly in the early 60s. Few people were rushing out to get new sets or UHF converters to watch them. WKBD’s sign on in 1965 started to change all of that. My...

Has WCXI 1160 moved to Milford Twp?

Today in Canton, what is normally a faint signal on 1160 was coming in loud and clear, even stopping on seek mode in the car. Has 1160 moved, or is this just a freak occurrence?

1460 was still blank.

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

KC has been a .500 club in their last 10. They are catching up to the Tigers.

Good thing Baltimore is in the same league.

Re: 106.5 Toledo

I think it depends on the market boundaries. I always forget what market Monroe is technically in. I know AM 560 clearly targets Detroit.

Fulton is probably in Toledo.

To be fair, how many copies did Bonds change simply because he was drunk?

Re: Jennifer Ann Wilson's downtown Plum Market puff piece on WXYZ

Detroit’s independent stores do sell fresh produce. The term is used by the media and political figures to push an agenda.

Re: Why can't WHNE go to UHF 30?

Years ago, WPXD wanted to move to RF 19 from Southfield, however Canada objected because of a London station (can’t remember the calls). They ended up stuck in Lyndon Twp. until RF 50 was finally approved.

Canada doesn’t want more US stations available if they can help it.

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

Toledo is a dive, but Fifth Third Field is a very nice park. And if you don't want to pay stadium prices for food and beer there are plenty of bars and restaurants in downtown Toledo. It's possible to park free on the street for weekend games if you get there early enough. The park has been kept up...

Re: Groups & singers that belong in the R&RHOF

Does it really matter? It’s a joke when you have rappers and lame pop acts in. I was there years ago- way overpriced and no cameras allowed (though I have heard that policy is no longer in place).

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

I love baseball. However, I have a limit as to how much I will spend on a bad product. If there are young exciting prospects, I am willing to bend that. The Tigers do not have that at the moment. If I want to see bad baseball in person, I’ll drive to Toledo. Cheaper, closer seats and cheaper parking...

Re: Syndication

I know some series didn’t syndicate all of their shows for whatever reason. For years, the only color Perry Mason episode was not rerun. My Three Sons and Donna Reed didn’t syndicate certain seasons.
