Re: Phil Spector, 81

While the man was a musical genius, he also served the last few years of his prison for murder. I'm not sure if he should be a respected person or not. It might be difficult to separate the art from the artist in this case.

Re: New host at 93.9 Virgin Radio

At least 93.9's morning show is local. 88.7's is not.

Re: WTOD still for Sale?

I liked WIOT'S playlist from 2012. Had a lot of newer stuff but a lot of classics as well. It definitely kept the whole station fresh at the time. Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, and Motley Crue were all on the 2012 playlist.

Re: WDET Broadcasting on 101.7 and 102.1

I'm pretty sure 101.5 the River had the same thing happen a few months ago. Transmitting its analog signal on 101.3 and 101.7. It was fixed a few days later. I know bleed-over happens on stations that have bad or no signals, but this with WDET is much different. I hope enough people are complaining.

Re: WTOD still for Sale?

I had forgotten about this station, it's the only one left in The Trust isn't it? If I recall, 94.5 in Green Bay WI so acquired by EMF. The one in Jefferson Missouri(?) was just shut down all together and the one in Albany Georgia was sold to a local broadcaster, I believe The Format is AAA. My edu...

Re: Jeff Gordon Prank

As a diehard Jeff Gordon fan, this was very funny. However, it was later found out that this was actually scripted, and that ticked off many people.

Re: Jeopardy

Since we no longer have Sean Connery around, perhaps they should also give a shot to Darrell Hammond or Will Ferrell! Not fond of this idea. Comics want to be funny, and Jeopardy's tight format doesn't allow any time for the host to go off on a riff. A comedian's talents are sort-of wasted on a qui...

Re: Jeopardy

Ken did a great job as host last night. He was very calm and collected, and did a great job during the contestant interviews. He talks slightly faster than Alex , but I didn't mind it at all. You might think Ken talks fast, but I would submit that Ken's pace of speech is more similar to Alex's pace...

At my home in Toledo, 101.9 was picked up on 102.7 as well.

Re: Burger King old logo

Kind of nice to have the old BK logo back. Burger King is a distant third among my favorite fast-food places. I prefer Wendy's and then McDonald's. The Chicken Fries are good, but their nuggets, french fries, and onion rings are so-so, IMO. The Chicken Sandwich is good too. Never tried their grilled...

Re: 2020 TV channel ratings

ION has had a very loyal audience since they've started airing crime dramas years ago. I think the pandemic hasn't helped any sports channel really, be it ESPN, FS1, NBCSN or NFL Network. There are now rumors of NBCSN shutting down by the end of the year and all the remaining programming moving to N...
