Re: WKLT-fm, Kalkaska and WKLZ-fm, Petoskey

Air-1 instead of K-Love ?!?! Wow, that is a big surprise. I thought for sure K-Love would air there. Air-1 is nowhere even remotely as popular as K-Love. 98.9 going Air-1 is very interesting. This also makes Traverse City-Petoskey one of very few markets to have Air-1 but no K-Love (the other examp...

"Stacks 92.1"

So when did this happen? The much-maligned Fuel 92.1 has finally run out of gas. The new format: Rhythmic AC.

Former WMXD DJ dies from COVID-19

Donafay Collins was a commander with the Wayne County Sheriff's office as well a former Mix 92.3 (including the Saturday night oldies show "The Back Jam") and WGPR personality.

Re: February's Nielsen Audio survey - demo rankings for A25-54, A18-34 and A18-49

i'm not too surprised with WMGC... they air the music people here want. It was the right move at the right time, and the listener loyalty reflects that :D Having the only local morning show on an Urban format station in the market no doubt helps. So does airing a music playlist that doesn't sound l...

Re: 8 tower array?

Actually, it's probably the WNZK array you're seeing. WNZK's is right along Will-Carleton Road, while WFDF is a very short distance southwest just north of Carleton itself.

WHMI playlist tweak

I'm noticing a lot more pop and disco songs in rotation lately, such as "I Will Survive" and "Straight Up," and slightly less classic rock. They sound more like WOMC now than like WCSX.

Re: WYCD's ratings fall to worst non-Holiday levels in MANY YEARS due to stupid programming changes

I agree, WYCD sounds like total horsesh*t... even more so than it did before. I can't believe country listeners anywhere, let alone Detroit, still want to hear "Meant to Be" three or four times a day. While I don't care for the majority of music Channel plays, they do seem to me to be one of the mor...

Re: 105.1 in Door County flips

Looking at that sample playlist reminds me of what the "Eagle" stations aired during their "we play everything" days. Add a little non-crossover country in there (one segue I remember from Gaylord's 101.5 is Heart "What About Love" into George Strait "How 'Bout Them Cowgirls") and it'd be exactly th...

Re: Big Book For Cumulus GR, Cracks 11 Share for January

Big bounce back for Cumulus in Grand Rapids as WLAV jumps nearly a full share from 3.0-3.8 December to January. WHTS also holds steady at a 2.7 while WKLQ continues its rise to a solid 2.6. With the other properties in the market, that means that Cumulus has gained over a share and a half from Dece...

Re: WFUR FM Sold, New Owners Filing Status Change for Commercial Station

One thing is for sure, BBN makes the current WFUR-FM sound like heavy metal. Anyone within listening range of WYBA-FM 90.1 Coldwater/Battle Creek can tune in for a preview of what's to come. I guess WFUR's addition of more contemporary music to its mix over the past decade or so hasn't succeeded in ...

Re: WVKS (92-5 Kiss FM) Music Choice?

Not to mention, WQQO has historically not been able to pick a consistent music policy and stick with it. Are they CHR? Adult CHR? Hot AC? Mainstream AC? Rhythmic Hot AC? That inconsistency has kept them from becoming the force in the market they once were. Even with that signal, they did very well d...
