Re: WTF is channel 4 doing?

Why?
It's tedious to watch for a full hour and is more or less a ripoff of the "Plinko" game from The Price is Right.

If it were a newly aired episode, I would've opposed the preemption, but the episode in question was a repeat.

Re: WTF is channel 4 doing?

A lot of WDIV's prerecorded news story packages have an awful audio disturbance. This problem has been occurring for at least three weeks. The sound is faint and distorted. Are they going to just ignore the issue or is someone over there going to fix/replace the faulty editing equipment responsible ...

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

The Tigers are 7 - 32 since June 1 following last night's loss. 1-9 in their last 10 games. There are 59 games left to play. If the Tigers win at the same percentage as the past 39 games, they will only manage 11 more wins for the season. That would put them at 40 wins and 122 losses, which would be...

Two WNIC thoughts...

First, the good news - did they finally shitcan the useless Mario Lopez show at night? I'm hearing a female jock and the normal playlist when I tune in during the evening these days. Now, the (continued) bad news - WHEN ON EARTH ARE THEY GOING TO GET THE AUDIO PROCESSING TO SOUND "NORMAL" AGAIN?!?! ...

Re: 101.3 The Brew

I think some sort of corporate format captain from Clownsquare has his or her hand in the cookie jar at the company's rock stations. WGRD and Banana 101.5's playlists took a shit around the same time, and also around that same time, Q103 in Albany traded Active Rock for a strong classic rock leaning...

Re: 99.3 WQAN Signal Strength

Eagle 101.5 puts out a very respectable product; all the other commercial FM stations based in the Ludington/Manistee area are a complete joke.

Thank God the area can pick up WTCM-FM, Rock 95.5, some decent non-comm outlets, and a few decent Wisconsin stations.

Re: WMYD To Host Detroit’s First ATSC 3.0 Signal

My guess is cable boxes do not always render the incoming signal purely & cleanly, and let's face it, HDMI cables and imperfect HDMI jacks can be culprits of signal degradation, too. When I replaced an increasingly glitchy HDMI cable a couple years back, the new cable delivered a noticeably cleaner ...

Re: July Tropo

Picked up 105.3 from Mansfield, OH area (CHR/Pop with syndicated Dave & Jimmy show) absolutely crystal clear in downtown Detroit around 8AM this morning.

Also heard 104.9 from Lorain, OH crystal clear and picked up a halfway decent signal from 101.3 WNCO in Ashland (near Mansfield).

London, Leamington, Chatham, northern Ohio and even Goderich, ON are all booming in this morning.

91.5 WVMV from Marine City is coming in like a local.

It's a typo.

They were WZZM-FM, then WZZR (not sure if there was an -FM suffix), then WLHT.

Re: What's next for 93.9fm in Indianapolis?

Are you insane?!?! Q96.9 had a 1.8 share, not an 18 share, and it sure as hell wasn't a "gay dance channel." It was a Rhythmic AC format. Please find & take your meds. 93.9X is a Class B1 signal with TX site about 10 miles NE of downtown Indy, and in their first full survey period, they managed a re...

Re: Robert Liggett passes...

W-Light (later stylized as "W-Lite") was a highly successful station in Grand Rapids when he owned it.
