Re: 1073 alternative Cleveland

Lipstick on the pig.
I really wish they'd just duplicate the WAKR format on 107.3.

Re: Ronnie Spector dies

This year is starting to look like a 10th anniversary replay of 2012. Betty White's passing appears to have set the tone for 2022.
I bet she's belting out "Take Me Home Tonight" with Eddie Money in music heaven as we speak...

Re: Canadian Numeris Radio Ratings - Fall 2021

The Big 8, CKLW stilll top dog decades later in Windsor. Are there any ratings for Chatham-Kent? Curious to see how county is doing there vs the rest? The most recent ratings I was able to find poking around were from Spring 2020, and posted on this very board by our moderator himself. 94.3 CKSY - ...

Re: WOAP Format Change

I'm in the Lansing area and still hearing the regional Mexican music on 103.1 as of 8:18pm. I understand enough Spanish to know it's a straight WMJH simulcast, commercials and all. No mention of any changes on the WOAP website or Facebook page. They were still airing the Portal format in the early m...

Re: 1480 & 850 Shutting Down

It's also really too bad WGVU-FM couldn't preserve at least a remnant of the format with a weekend specialty show or something.

Re: Could Detroit support a FM commercial Spanish language station?

You might have better luck with an all polish station I Agree. I am not sure it its viable but the Hispanic population in this city does deserve one. Did Detroit ever have an all Polish radio station, like during the 30' till the 50's.? Anything that wasn't network affiliated in the pre-Top 40 era ...

Re: 1480 & 850 Shutting Down

There's also the Whitehall LPFM on 98.9. Its signal doesn't carry far out of the immediate Whitehall/Montague area but it fills in the gap in part of 850's coverage area.

Re: Another ALT gone

Whoopee, more autotuned rap trap crap masquerading as country.
At least that market does have a couple of options for classic country.

Re: Holy crap, 95.5...

I could still find the occasional song here and there on CHR up until 2014 or so. Shake It Off and Rude are two that come to mind. After that, I don't even bother. And for the record, I'm 36. Studies show that most men age out of CHR roughly between 25 and 28. But there used to be some variety on C...

Meanwhile, Mary Thurston (the Cupcake Queen), who had been at WATZ, is moving back to 107.7 The Bay for middays. Just saw her post on Facebook.

Re: Holy crap, 95.5...

I place my final defection from the CHR format at 2002, although in retrospect I think my defection began two or so years earlier as I started getting more into oldies and standards. The rise of 50 Cent and Ja Rule just cemented it. Actually I'm surprised at how few songs from 1997 onward hold up fo...

Re: November Radio Ratings

Is the bloom off the rose for Christmas music in West Michigan? The River way down (again), Star flat. WCSG plays a fair amount of it, but not wall to wall and pretty much entirely from CCM artists (no Mariah, Mathis etc.).

Re: Christmas Music on WNIC

In an impulsive moment of Baby Boomer nostalgia, I picked up a special issue of Mad magazine that satirizes the Christmas season. It has a January 1973 piece titled "The Mad Christmas Hate Book". It includes this: "Don't you hate...Christmas music that starts right after Thanksgiving, and practical...
