Re: 2019 Detroit Lions

I could see the Chiefs knocking off the Pats (hopefully), but the Saints aren't coming out of the NFC. Talented roster, but Drew Brees is old and his arm was dead by the end of last season, obscured by the horrid officiating in that playoff game against the Rams. There's a very good chance he could ...

Re: 2019 Detroit Lions

Might actually be worse than 5-11. If getting dumbass McCarthy out of there revives the Packers there are going to be three good teams in the NFC North.

560 The Joe Miami

https://radioinsight.com/headlines/179393/entercom-makes-major-lineup-changes-to-wqam-rebranding-560-as-the-joe/ As part of the reshuffling of the deck chairs on the Titanic that is AM radio, Miami's sports station WQAM is now "560 The Joe". Has to be the worst name for a radio station I've ever hea...

Re: Uncensored music on 94.5 WXKR

Which song? Other than the cover of "So What" nothing in Metallica's discography is really that blatantly obscene, though you do hear a few f-bombs here and there.

Re: WDRV now #1 in Chicago

WXRT has always been a great station in Chicago, it’s to bad no one in Detroit can do a format like WXRT, it could do well. The River 93.9 had the opportunity to do something like that but never really caught on to what a AAA formatted station should actually sound like. XRT sucks. It's "rock" for ...

WDRV now #1 in Chicago

Pretty sad state of affairs, IMO, that a station playing repetitive 80's heavy classic rock can now be #1 in a once-great radio market like Chicago. https://www.robertfeder.com/2019/08/06/chicago-radio-ratings-drive-revs-top-18-years/?fbclid=IwAR2eGcOeTn8nJCDAAUbo8SeyRXi7XqdiempnfSXBWLcchtttKEICujvR...

Re: WSB Atlanta

750 will stay as-is and when AM radio becomes widely unavailable in newer cars, they'll basically sell the station for scrap value. That's my prediction. Do you really believe AM radio in cars is going out? I'm not asking that as a challenge to you. It's just the first time I've ever heard that pre...

Re: Get Well Soon Grizzly 94.5XKR

He was at his best overnight on IOT. The block of metal he played at midnight every night was awesome.

One of the few good unique local personalities we have left. Hope he's well soon.

Seriously, the land around those Effers must be in high demand. Splendor of 1970s suburbia with a lovely view of the Sun Oil refinery.

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

Ha, it's hard to remember there was a time this season that the Tigers were actually overachieving and Gardenhire was being praised by the media for getting a lot out of this team. The difference between this Tigers team and the awful 2013 Astros you reference is that the Astros farm system then was...

Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

How in the world did IOT gain so much? It sounds as stale as ever. I noticed that too, they almost doubled! Rock stations usually do better in spring and summer than fall and winter, but still. And XKR was up too so it's not like they're stealing listeners from them. Also noticed SPD up for the fir...

Re: Mainstream media in this town is kissing the Ilitch family's asses again

I don’t get the love for the Ilitch family. Sure, he won with the Red Wings in the past and has a pizza chain. The Tigers have done nothing for most of their ownership. Ilitch received all of this government money for his little downtown project which has been a colossal failure. The old man also i...

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

I didn't think it was possible but they might very well actually be worse than the 2003 team.

And certainly the organization from top to bottom is further up shit creek now than it was then.

DAB is delicious. In a better world DAB and Carlsberg would be more widely available than Beck's and Heineken.

Re: Worst Cars Ever Made

I saw the Chevette on that list and stopped reading. An '85 Chevette was split between my dad as his commuter car for years and me as my first car at 16. Sure it was slow and ugly, but reliable and solidly bullt unlike the '04 Cavalier I owned later which had coats of paint coming off for no reason,...
