Re: Past WJBK network slogans

WGER - James GERity Jr. owned the station when it was on 102.5
WKBD - Kaiser Broadcasting Detroit
WTTH (now WPHM) - the original owner, the Times-Herald (Port Huron)

Canada had a few as well: CFTR Toronto (TR = Ted Rogers), CFRA Ottawa (FRA = Frank Ryan, the original owner back in the '40s)

Spring Arbor splits Home.FM simulcast

After a couple of years of simulcasting with 106.9 WSAE, 89.3 WJKN-FM has flipped back to a separate CCM format as "The Arbor." The new format is also being heard on all the former Home.FM translators (107.9 W300CO Dexter isn't mentioned in the post, but that includes them too), leaving 106.9 as the...

Re: "NO" songs

If we're including "nobody" or "nowhere" songs, how about:

Nobody - Sylvia
Nobody Told Me - John Lennon
Road to Nowhere - Talking Heads
Ain't Nobody - Rufus & Chaka Khan
Thousand Miles from Nowhere - Dwight Yoakam
Nobody Like Me - Human Beinz

Makes sense that they would support the Salvation Army, since they no doubt share similar opinions on LGBTQ+ people.

Re: August Numbers

920 WOKY in Milwaukee and the late 940 out of South Haven also aired that same satellite format (America's Best Music from Westwood One) at that time. It's also the same format that aired on 1180 WXLA until they went to Soft AC about a month ago (WXLA couldn't be heard in G.R. back then; they can no...

Re: August Numbers

"EZ Love Songs"... boy, that brings back some memories. I attended college at Aquinas from 1998-2002. I recall Delilah bouncing from 100.5 to 95.7 to 105.7 during that time. And after W-Lite lost Delilah to EZ (I'm pretty sure they hadn't changed to Star yet at that time), W-Lite aired the Jones Rad...

Re: Easy 93.3

I'm visiting family in the Lansing area for Labor Day and have it on in the background as I type this. The music is mostly '80s and '90s, not dissimilar to 98.7 The Breeze or 100.5 The River in GR except with no currents or recurrents. In the time I've been listening, I haven't heard anything more c...

95.5 Chicago

They dropped their pop country format and started stunting just a few hours ago.
As I'm not a paying customer, I don't have access to the Domain Insight.

Re: WLMI Flipping

BTW, I noticed that 92.9's drops use incorrect grammar: You don't play less commercials....you play fewer commercials. A quantity is different than an amount. Not that they're the only ones. I've noticed an increased use of this incorrect syntax all over the media in recent years. 98.7 in Detroit u...

Re: Old WJR Radio Guide

Along the same token, I also remember around the late-1980s or early-1990s a radio atlas of Michigan, which featured radio stations by format and their range of coverage. Stores such as the defunct Action Auto had them for free. The big flaw was that it not only neglected most of the UP, but it did...

Re: The 3 songs you're Most Tired of on Detroit radio

On the pop/AC stations: Rolling in the Deep - Adele When that song came out around 2011, it sounded like one of the greatest singles of all time. That beat and the singing gave it a visceral and soulful feeling that jumped out of the radio. After hearing it a few hundred times, I was compelled to w...

Yet WCPZ is still Mix 102.7. Before they went to WMTX, was WCPZ Z102.7 or Z103?
I remember listening to them on school trips to Cedar Point prior to the Mix rebranding and I'm pretty sure they were identifying with the call letters at that point. But I could be wrong.
