Re: Andy Stuart out?

Umm, notice the picture above. Star 105, My 98-3... Cumulus is not good at maintaining anything, whether its cleaning the boards, clipping the "hair" from atop the racks in the rack room, carpets, exit signs, toilets and plumbing, etc. The GM name is no shock, if you look at it.

Yeah everywhere that isn't Castro St. in San Francisco is MAGAville.
I disagree. Columbus, OH is a great example. Cincinnati, Cleveland, Ann Arbor/Ypsi... lots of places are not MAGA, like Toiletto, OH is.

Re: The Zone is back

Audio doesn’t sound right. It was odd hearing a short news commentary on a rock station. Was it maybe because of a contracted element? Those must run the duration of a contract, no matter the format. And besides.... Toledo is definitely more right wing, so it almost fits. As a double minority, I ca...

Re: The Zone is back

It still would be a needed community service. I listened today and Sharon sounded great. You can go listen to the Imagine Dragons somewhere else for an hour. They probably will. Radio is dying, since many cannot control what they hear, which includes stopsets. Contact show is community service. BTW...

Re: The Zone is back

Or they could diversify the program and report on other aspects of Polish culture. The firing squad lining up in a circle, the hockey team at spring training, 1492 and 1776 being connecting hotel rooms, etc. How will Sharon do the show prep? She is not tech savvy. She has no hold on Polish culture,...

Re: The Zone is back

Isn't there a Toledo Polka band that actually got a Grammy nomination 20 years back? They ought to keep ole Chet Zablocki's Polka Party on the air as the longest running show on radio, since "Patterns in Music" got dumped from WJR some years back- Mike Deja had a great show until his very untimely ...

Re: The Zone is back

The Polka party started on WTOD 1560 back in the 50s, I believe. Sharon is The Late Chet Zablocki's 2nd wife. His first wife died I think sometime in the 1980s, and he remarried. Sharon has carried on the show, I know nothing about her, but if she is in poor health and driving alone from Tecumseh, ...

Re: The Zone is back

The Polka Party spot slots usually are a year long contract. Wonder if Ron Hindman (RJ) is there to fulfill the rest of the year's contractual obligations with advertisers. Could the show finally be ending? It's not like the Polka Party ever evolved or gained much traction lately. Also, it's not a r...

Re: The Zone is back

As I'm typing this - the station is airing a Polka music show. Brokered time - obviously. Funny stuff!!! I'm not in the area to hear it myself, but am told Polka Party's Sharon Zablocki is not there too often anymore and RJ is doing the show most times. Shocked that's still on. When I'm back in T-T...

Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

has there even been a corporate programmer who was a bigger piece of crap than Jan Jeffries?). I was never enthused about the queen that programmed the "Rock Block" at that same time. Forgot his name though. The late Larry Bloom was not so great either. Also, the station was forced to emulate Atlan...

Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

A bit off topic, but I think there were a few PD's in between Finn and Marshall, before it went back to Ron Finn in late 2000s. Todd Micheals and Brian Casey come to mind. I think Steve Marshall had the best run with the Star brand. Steve...when you see this, can you refresh our memories. I know yo...

Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

1999 was just after WWWM became "Star 105." Once again, Thompson Creative Jingles, with the late Brian James as the VO/Imaging voice. That was when Steve Marshall took over as PD from Ron Finn. No TM Century jingles for Z100 or ZForce or regenerated KIIS jingles that Z100 used. They kept the Thompso...

Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

I'd even bring back the Z100 jingle package the station once used. I know it was not "Star" that used TM Century jingles. Their jingle are thin and lifeless... just like K100's current package, due to Cumulus now owning TM imaging, formerly TM Century and Century 21 jingles. Star used Thompson Crea...

Re: WTOL may be removing MeTV

Instead of the test pattern, put up a WSM Logo and simulcast AM650 audio from Nashville? Could have more 'listeners' than K100 ? Or better yet, put the local "hick" channel's audio on 13.4. It was good enough for channel 52.2, with the jesus freak stuff. Nascar, CMA's, etc., someone figures hick mu...

Re: WTOL may be removing MeTV

Cable 13 in Palm Springs is NBC affiliate KMIR, which uses its analog channel, 36.x, as its PSIP, and actually broadcasts on channel 26: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KMIR-TV Interesting. My13 used to be on cable 13. With My13 in LA, was confusing. I also see MeTV moved too. Used to be on low power...
