Re: B-93 Birthday Bash Postponed/Canceled. Again

With apologies, The best Radio Tradio I ever heard was in the UP. A woman selling something exclaimed, "and I don't want anyone trying to Jew me down" I nearly drove off 2.

Re: B-93 Birthday Bash Postponed/Canceled. Again

Mo Bandy, Box Car Willie, Jane (Janie) Fricke, Ernest Tubb, Webb Pierce, Ray Price, imho are all ancient history. DAC had one song. Just the name alone suggests suggests Jethro FM isn't to be taken seriously. Formatically it's a shotgun blast. Ratings? zero point zero. A well run pirate might make m...

Re: B-93 Birthday Bash Postponed/Canceled. Again

In writing this response, I was a little surprised to learn there are now two accepted Classic Country Formats. There is Pre mid 80's, and there is mid 80's to about 2000. In my humble opinion, there will never again be a successful 80's and earlier Classic Country station in any kind of a large, me...

B-93 Birthday Bash Postponed/Canceled. Again

B-93 says: The health and welfare of our visitors, vendors and staff is our priority. The Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting mandates of the State of Michigan made this difficult decision necessary, but WBCT-FM – B.93.7 has postponed the date for Birthday Bash which was to be held on August 29, 202...

Kevin hasn't touched his Facebook page since June. Ashley Asphalt? The name is an insult to anyone with a brain.

She covered the breaking story this week of a woman in a Verizon store who refused to wear her virus mask. The store called 911 and gave the dispatcher a play by play description of the events.

Re: Do black lives REALLY matter in West Michigan?

Mr. Jones, I do not need cover for a single thing. I will not suggest or infer anyone or any organization is racist. I merely ask the question, and offer it up for a thoughtful conversation A crucial role in reporting is story followup, Editors in some newsrooms do try to shape policy. They do edito...

Re: Do black lives REALLY matter in West Michigan?

I don't mean to suggest you be ever be outraged over anything. I think a great many people are not happy unless they are outraged over something. I think the media overuses that word. The only story recently that produced anything like outrage on my part was the murder of an 18 year old Amish girl i...

Admittedly I am in Florida, but I have been following shooting/murder news in Grand Rapids for several weeks. At the end of June, David Gunn a black man, was shot and killed at his home on Muskegon near Crosby. The three GR TV stations and MLIVE covered that shooting and his subsequent ID, More than...

Re: Upward Mobility

I think Option 1 may be mistaken about salaries etc. I topped out just a smidge over 100 K ten or 12 years ago. You live within your income and I prayed for remotes. Around 2008 I Heart didn't offer anyone (that I know of) any kind of a raise. That includes office staff. Contracts went away and the ...

Big Voice Guy...or Gal

MW made a brief reference recently to the WTNR voice guy. Sometime before i was made aware the I Heart elevator, in my case, only goes down. a move had begun to replace the station image "big voice"' guy or gal. These people were replaced with "artists" who sound like they were bored and had zero in...
