Re: am 1250 Saginaw

Alrighty then.... I'm guessing that what I remember about McCluskey's AM up there was probably correct, it was further down the dial. I'm guessing all the shakeups at WTCM probably trashed what he had planned. I think the worst performing station up north goes to 1230 WGRY. The absolute weakest sign...

Re: 98.7 The Breeze (Soft AC) is here!

Just out of curiosity... what would you rather hear, a song you've heard non-stop for the last 30 years, or a song you haven't heard in decades? What about a song you never heard at all? Radio has lost it's sense of "discovery" almost completely. Remember, a lot of people 40 and under really don't c...

Re: 98.7 The Breeze (Soft AC) is here!

Agreed, Now what I see eventually happening (But I could be wrong) is they may cut back on 60’s and 70’s titles but only time will tell, let’s face it 6 Decades to cover is like 3 generations something has to give it will be tough to please 3 generations, you either cut back 60’s and 70’s or 2K’s a...

Re: 98.7 The Breeze (Soft AC) is here!

No offense whatsover to Tim, as he is great at his job, I just feel that if a PD is very passionate about a format, they shouldn't need to be taking suggestions. They should just know already that those songs work. He is a country fan and focuses all his attention on WYCD. I have no ill feelings to...

Re: 98.7 The Breeze (Soft AC) is here!

He was pointing out the current state of radio in Detroit... he didn’t say that this being Detroit was the cause. Yeah, exactly, and it's by no means limited to Detroit. It's everywhere the big corporations own stations. They seem to treat radio stations no different than a fast food restaurant or ...

Let's kidnap KISQ's PD and bring him to Detroit :lol :lol
Please do! I'd love to hear a station where *somebody* has some passion for music and radio instead of just "upload the playlist and ignore the station". There is way too much of that on the dial now.

Re: 98.7 The Breeze (Soft AC) is here!

98.1 The Breeze in S.F. switched to this format THREE YEARS ago, and they are still an "oh wow" station to me. The PD actually cares about the station and keeps the oh wow songs in, and ADDS to the playlist. That's SF. This is Detroit. Detroit radio is, at best, bland, dead and totally stale So bec...

Re: am 1250 Saginaw

Wow... 640 Kingsley. I was thinking it was lower on the dial, but, to be honest, this was back in like 1978 or maybe 80. I remember some commotion about Kingsley in the early 90's??? I don't recall all that much about it. Did 640 ever actually go on the air up there? Kingsley... did it have anything...

Re: Trumpy Bear

It’s sad the liberals didn’t have an Obama 🐻 bear, hand me a tissue Tito. Liberals can love their Trumpy Bear too. There is very little difference between Liberals and Conservatives. They both share the same pro-capitalist, anti-working class ideology. The only real difference is that Conservatives...

I think a whole lot of people would gladly move out of "Pure Michigan" if they could afford to! Detroit, a "tourist destination"? Seriously? I drove from Flint to Detroit for ten years. I can honestly say that I never found an area down there I would consider moving into in order to cut my commute. ...

Re: Comcast Business Internet

I've seen it. Spectrum did something similar a year or two ago. Here's what I think is hysterical... For their HOME products, it all "you'll miss the fucking big game without this $300 a month package, you idiot" mentality, but how prim and proper are the BUSINESS ads, with all the hyperbole of "ROI...
