Re: RIP 89X

I'm hearing rumblings that CKWW is changing also. If so, that seems to support the idea of a Classic Hits or Adult Hits format on one of the two FM's.
As for 580's new format, my gut feeling is TSN Radio 580.

Re: RIP 89X

Here's my gut feeling at this point:

88.7 goes Variety Hits as Bob FM
93.9 goes Virgin Radio or Adult CHR CHUM-FM style (Mix 96.7 is sounding closer to mainstream AC these days, with the amount of '80s they play)

Re: KDTI Has Gone All Christmas Music

Why is KDTI in this section? Because KDTI, 37 watts at 90.3, is in Rochester Hills, MI. Since their network was dropped, it is K Love Christmas. Anyone know if it is all religious Christmas Music? It would be refreshing next to "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer" and "I Want A Hippopotamus For Chr...

Re: October Nielsen #'s - WCSG soars; WFGR & Star 105.7 tank; WTNR remains in the gutter.

Wow... 265kw WSRW in a dead heat with 3kw WTRV and getting beaten by an AM/translator combo. I know the pandemic has been pretty tough on listen-at-work formats, but their sister stations WNIC and WRVF are still pretty healthy in their respective markets. Then again, WNIC and WRVF aren't all Premium...

Re: WNIC All Christmas

Why can't iHate expand their playlist? They have a hard time playing the Top 40 Christmas, yet alone mix it up a bit with a throwback instrumental or something interesting. I don't want, need, or listen to the same 30 songs over and over again. WRVF should get a clue from WCKY-FM when they were WTT...

Barf!

Thank goodness for Sirius XM.
Make that three in areas that can also pick up Mix 98.1 Defiance.

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

It’s rare that we listen to the terrestrial radio in the vehicle anymore, but it happens. Usually it’s been 94.7 and yesterday flipping thru the stations happened to his 94.7HD2 which had Yellow Submarine on it by the Beatles. The 7 year old says “that’s one of my favorites” (no joke) and so we lef...

Re: Christmas music 2020

I like the 60s and 70s music on WCHY 97.7. We have Sirius XM in the car, and a bunch of memory banks and when we're up, we had 106.3 on two or three memories for convenience with proximity to other banks without going through them all. I took one off and replaced it with 97.7. We have 106.3 and 97....

Re: Least favorite commercials of all-time

Add to my list: any commercial featuring elaborately choreographed dancing to advertise a product that has nothing to do with dancing. For example, the one for a credit card or something or other I just saw this afternoon. More often I seem to see those for food or drink, especially soft drinks.

That's a toughie... 99.9 in Rogers City or 93.9 (Oldies 93) from Newberry/Sault if you're in the Straits area? Maybe 98.5 UPS or 107.5 WCCW if you can deal with some static?
