Re: 4 Country Stations in Detroit-Windsor

WDRQ's HD exciter has been off for at least a few weeks. No HD = no Nash Icon on 93.1 HD2. The audio quality of their HD2 has long been poor.

Re: WVFM got JACKED up!

Most radio managers are incapable of running a damn popsicle stand!

Cannot believe how horrendously piss poor 106.5's processing sounds over the air!!! Complete disgrace.

Re: Health director fired? (Robert Gordon MiDHHS out)

I remember Snyder certainly used that privilege quite a bit and I don't recall you ever complaining about it.
Are you out of your mind???

I CONSTANTLY criticized Snyder on this board.

Re: See I told ya so (re: Blake Griffin)

Per James Edwards III of the Athletic: Per sources, the #Pistons will not stretch the money owed to Blake Griffin, will eat this year and next. Detroit is in rebuild mode and has three draft picks as of now in 2021. Kudos to Mr. Edwards for answering the question that the dopey beat writers for the ...

Re: Dr. Seuss books are racist

You guys do realize it is Dr. Seuss Enterprises itself that decided to pull the six books due to racist imagery, right? No one is "canceling" anything. They made a business decision. The books in question are obscure because educators and libraries long ago decided not to stock those books because o...

Re: Any Robins Yet?

I heard robins in the trees in my neighborhood chirping as far back as the first week of February. Even heard some during the polar cold snap (I suspect some of those birds croaked). Saw a few feeding in my front yard near the road a few days ago among other places in the neighborhood. This was the ...

Re: Worst-sounding radio stations of all-time.

I do remember the lifeless audio chain on 97.3 WJZE during the brief time it was simulcasting 106.5!

I'll give WCXI some credit. Their audio sounded much better the last few times I sampled the station.

Re: Two major stories the Detroit media seem to be ignoring

Not sure if this problem was corrected on fords, but my Aunt has a Ford Flex(don't know the year) and she doesn't care much for the touch screen controls on it. She might have the first version of Sync 2 (also known as MyFord Touch). Very buggy, from what I've read. The updated version of Sync 2, w...

Re: See I told ya so (re: Blake Griffin)

Because Griffin was technically waived, I believe the $62 million *might* be stretchable over five seasons (2 seasons owed × 2 + 1). If that is indeed the case, this negotiated buyout would prove to be a very good thing for the Pistons. Sure would be nice if one of the Pistons beat writers could get...

Re: See I told ya so (re: Blake Griffin)

I would be curious to know how the buyout is able to be amortized from a salary cap hit standpoint. On the surface, it would appear he took the Pistons to the cleaners! The Athletic reports he only gave back $13 million of the roughly $75 million he was owed over the next two seasons. A TON of money...

Re: 97.1

Mr. Costa just gave out the call-in line of his old station on 97.1's air. Oops.

Otherwise, he sounds quite good.

Re: #'s wise, Something IS afoot.

Current based top 40 and country song product is crap right now. That said, 105.3 Hot FM's rise is surprising! They have pulled ahead of 95.7 in 12+ and are now "hot" on slumping SNX's heels. I'm not convinced this is anything other than a 1 book aberration. Time will tell. WSNX really isn't even tr...

Re: January Radio Ratings

They were top five in A25-54, A18-49 and A18-34 much longer than virtually any other station that has tried classic hip-hop. The ratings really started to gel once the Pistons were dumped. Sadly, the station is now a mere shadow of itself. Multiple dayparts on auto pilot or close to it. Stale soundi...
