That is and was the dumbest TV show next To Seinfeld in American television history, What a waste of broadcast air time, Thank God it’s over.
Dumb, and patronizing the Dunning-Kruger crew all at the same time.
are we talking about the show or the thick cloud of "smug" here?

Re: Legendary WKNR Keener 13

No regular streaming, but the keener13.com site does occasional special streaming shows.
Lots of airchecks and jingles, etc. on keener13.com's page on Soundcloud.
THere's also a keener podcast and other WKNR inks at Motor City Radio Flashbacks mcrfb.com

Re: SiriusXM and Cancellations

If you're on a "frugal" data plan (as I used to be), all that mobile streaming can use up a lot of data pretty quickly and could push you into overage charges. I still like having a bunch of old school "presets" so I can simply just punch around between a few favorites while driving.

Byron Allen? I remember when he was on Real People years ago.
Byron Allen?
He owns the Weather Channel, just bought a TV Station group, owns Entertainment Studios, which produces and syndicates a number of shows, and feeds eight cable networks.

Re: TV Guide

It doesn't make any mention of OTA. Fortunately, I have tvtv.us on my smartphones. tvtv.us recently added Canada and the UK to its service. If you want to be shocked, do a "Broadcast" listing for a small town in the UK, then a small town in USA, then a small town in Canada! I didn't know about tvtv...

Re: ATSC 3.0 To Be Deployed In 40 U.S. Markets By End Of 2020

Keep in mind ATSC 3.0 is not mandated and could become another tech failure, Many broadcasters may just say forget ATSC 3.0 and just be forced to do the repack which in itself is going to be costly and remain ATSC 1.0, The industry overall is committed to ATSC 3.0, as it replaces obsolete MPEG-2/8-...

WDFN nights

On an AM Radio group on Facebook, someone in western Massachusetts yesterday (4/20) reported hearing nighttime interference from WDFN to Bloomberg's NYC WBBR 1130, usually solid at his location. Much like listeners in metro Detroit, he had never heard WDFN before, much less at night, Someone forget ...

Re: WKBD Testing on RF34

For me it has been the opposite. The lower the RF channel the more stable the signal is for me. So I am a little worried that WKBD might start having issues in bad weather and high winds after it moves. I am really looking forward to 4, 7, and 62 moving during Phase 8. There is an entirely new ante...

I want those days back when the russian woodpecker would over take the 27mhz band....now that was probagation.
The "woodpecker" took over a H*** swath of spectrum above and below wherever it happened to be centered. It would have been an actual benefit to civilization if it had stayed on at 27MHz.
