Re: Did Your Local Meijer Stop Selling Single Beers?

All I know is I can get angus 85% lean ground beef (1 lb pkg) at Kroger for $3.99 per lb as opposed to the absurd $7.19 per lb the Meijer in Royal Oak charges! Meijer definitely has the best prices on breakfast cereal, fresh deli meats, laundry detergent, snot rags, and T.P. for my bunghole, but on ...

Re: WTCM-FM 103.5, etc.

Yes and yes. (You're not as stupid as you think! Don't sell yourself short.) Of course, in my hypothetical example, Townsquare could always choose to default (i.e. renege) on the deal, in which case Midwestern Broadcasting could sue them in court. Lest anyone get the wrong idea, I have no idea if an...

Re: WTCM-FM 103.5, etc.

I'll give an illustrative example: Say, for instance, Townsquare made a deal with Midwestern Broadcasting that says "get your affairs in order, complete the acquisition of WKLT-FM, and between that point in time and xx/xx/xxxx (the option expiry date), tell us the date and we'll allow you to file th...

Re: 1130 "The Fan" to disappear- iHeart launching new network

I noticed 1160 WCXI was airing conservative talk programming from Fox News Talk this afternoon. No locally inserted promos, no local ads, nothing. Just straight content from the bird, adhering to the modus operandi of sister station 1090 WCAR.

Re: WTCM-FM 103.5, etc.

If true, the Biederman family couldn't have possibly picked a worse time to be sellers. Only way it makes sense to sell now is if they have an option agreement in place from pre-COVID where a "put" can be exercised.

Re: 1130 "The Fan" to disappear- iHeart launching new network

The content is pathetically flimsy. This is a novelty station. The headlines are mostly old news stories, and the one dimensional nature of the content gets very tiresome.

If this evolves into more of a talk/call-in format, it may survive. Otherwise, I highly doubt BIN makes it to 2021.

Re: North Goes South?

Yes, many months ago. Actually, Roy Henderson "evicted" them from 99.3 (supposedly). WQAN has a long history of extended episodes of operating at reduced power or being off the air entirely.

Re: 1130 "The Fan" to disappear- iHeart launching new network

It will be interesting to see what happens here. My guess is a slate of podcasters currently carried on the iHeart platform will serve as the backbone for this new Urban Talk format.

Don't be shocked if Fox Sports Radio programming shows up soon on (an otherwise useless) HD2 or HD3 channel.

Random observations

WGVU-FM has done a nice job putting its new 95.3 MHz translator to use. RDS is functioning and the audio chain sounds surprisingly good. In the car, the station comes in well as far east as the Whitneyville Rd. overpass along I-96. Signal turns to absolute crap by the time one reaches M-50 (88.5 FM ...

Re: WFUR 102.9 off air

I tuned to 102.9 MHz for about five minutes while driving M-6 from roughly Hanna Lake Rd. (a mile east of Kalamazoo Ave.) all the way to I-96 by the airport. 102.9 The Hog for a few brief spurts was coming in nicely. Heard "Send the Pain Below" by Chevelle, an excerpt & promo for the Bob and Brian m...

To follow up on an earlier comment of mine: If you have Medicare Plan A or B, you are entitled to $250,000 of personal injury protection coverage for free. If you want unlimited PIP coverage, you'll have to pay for it just like now (although premium will be less than under current law). The above st...

100% agreed, Matt.

Ken Holland absolutely does NOT deserve to be inducted!!! The guy is a complete hack.

Holland's player personnel decisions and contract negotiation skills were absolutely miserable.

Re: How to fix the Fox 2 morning show

First of all, I would get rid of the stupid Fox 2 News Morning name and the Nine, and just rename the whole thing, Good Day Detroit, and have that run from 4-9. I like that idea, actually. "Good Day, Detroit" sounds pleasant and uplifting. As for the evenings, please get back to investigate journal...
