Re: Hulu or Netflix?

Sirius XM offers high quality streaming through Roku and numerous other smart TV services. Also found an interesting app on my Samsung smart TV called vTuner. There is some duplication between that one and Tune In, but I've found a number of instances where vTuner offers high quality radio station s...

Another new face at channel 7 weather

Saw a young gentleman by the name of Mike Taylor present the weather on Circle 7 news at six. I'm unfamiliar with his prior history, but my first impression was a positive one. He did a good job! Does this mean Chris Edwards is finally retiring for real? Let's see...they have Rexroth, Kevin Jeanes, ...

Re: My 96.3

The station at least had plenty of personality and a seemingly wider playlist in that '97 aircheck. Not bad. By 1999, the station was boring and dreary. Ratings were around a 2.5. It sucked every bit as bad in 2000 during the "alternative classics" phase. Playlist probably had 250 songs max. Even wi...

Re: My 96.3

You're right, stopnswop. I don't think Disney's acquisition of ABC had occurred yet. I should've said Capital Cities / ABC (owner of WPLT at the time).

Re: WDVD afternoon drive

I'd be good with that. My guess is Lisa Lisa will get the shift (also good by me!), assuming the new PD doesn't bring in someone with whom he previously worked.

Personally, I'd love to hear Scott Vertical or Jake Edwards back on the air.

...and then Disney/ABC had to ruin that by flipping the station to a tightly-playlisted, ultra-conservative Modern AC. :x :x :x

Re: My 96.3

The "modern hits" era of the Planet was fucking horrible. No thanks!!! Watching paint dry was more interesting than listening to 96.3. Never had a chance to listen to the station when it was a true alternative rock station. Sounds like the station was a lot better in the mid 90's. WDVD is a very suc...

Re: AM Radio 2020

AM radio & programming in the 2020's will become increasingly non-mainstream, just like the 2010's. Hybrid digital will limp along. Very few additional stations will go digital only.

Re: Ferris State

99% of the radio & TV audience in Metro Detroit could give two rips about Division II athletics. Most of the 1% who do care are likely affiliated with Wayne State. The Ferris State story is important to some alums as well as residents of the Big Rapids area. I'm not saying this to diminish the team'...

Re: I 75 Info Needed

On southbound I-75, there is about a two mile stretch (from the Ambassador Bridge to Springwells St) where only 1 lane of traffic is open. I recommend avoiding that area from mid-afternoon to early evening. Westbound I-94 is a disaster through Detroit during both morning & afternoon rush hour. Absol...
