Notice to all Buzzboard readers & posters: A requested server migration took place Saturday evening. Unfortunately, I did not re-point my DNS records to the new server until roughly 7:45p ET on Monday, November 12. As a result, any posts and new user registrations occurring between the nighttime hours of 11/10 and approximately 7:45p ET on Monday, 11/12 have been lost.

This was unavoidable, and the longer I waited to re-point to the new server, the greater the number of posts that would've been lost.

Please feel free to resubmit any threads / posts you created. They will NOT be lost this time! Many thanks for your patience these past couple of weeks while I've worked to migrate the Buzzboard to a more secure, more robust platform.

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

The song rotation is about 6 hours a lot of repeats they’re playing 10K songs but repeating the same 100 tunes not a good start.
Not at all uncommon for a new station launch. The station wants to introduce new listeners to core artists & songs.

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

It dawned on me that Entercom pull the same bullshit a little less than a year ago on the listeners of 94.1 KMPS in Seattle. Unlike Amp, KMPS was actually a very successful radio station with strong sales and good adult demo ratings. The station flipped to Christmas music in late 2017, its personali...

Re: Is Kroger starting a price war in Metro Detroit?

One of the posts that were accidentally purged as a result of the server changeover speculated that Kroger was trying to match Walmart on certain items. On many items, especially private label items (which includes milk), Kroger is now less expensive than Meijer in numerous instances. For brand name...

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

Stephen and JoAnn would be a good fit for the new 98.7.

However, I'd prefer a music intensive morning drive, similar to the old V98.7.

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

Yeah, how dare iFart beat Entercom to the punch with "Alt" !

I'm sure Entercom regrets not having a 50 kW FM station that is an absolute cellar dweller in the ratings. :hat

I sure hope they don't bastardize afternoon drive with out-of-market voice tracking.

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

The station recently has been closer to a 2.5 share. Same type of ratings DRQ had when it dumped CHR/Pop. 98.7's demos were never good on a consistent basis. Station seldom cracked the top eight in Adults 18 to 34. Those are just pitiful numbers for a CHR. I think The Bounce demoted 98.7 to P3 statu...

Re: The Fox 94 FM

Indeed, what the CRTC did was terrible.

But to spend so much money on a new format before it even received CRTC approval was outlandishly stupid!!

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

In the interest of full disclosure, because my predictions from yesterday & early today were all lost, I'll remind everyone that I did a mediocre job predicting how this would all play out! Correctly, I was suspicious as to the duration of the Christmas music stunt. I thought it would be temporary -...

Re: Format change at 101.5 Manistee (recreation of lost thread)

Wasn't 101.5 in Manistee co-owned with some stations in the Ludington area?

In a way, the station has gone full circle. The new format is probably not all that different from the former Kool 101.5.

A minor but noticeable change at WKQI?

Quietly, the station seems to be slowly phasing out its longtime imaging voice, Dave Michaels - better known locally as "the Deep Voice Guy." This gentleman did all of the reads for a few years at WKQI, then followed Dom Theodore to 98.7 Amp Radio as part of that station's launch, and then when Dom ...

Re: 99.5 gets a new midday jock; 105.1 axes the Big Boy & Shae Shae morning show

Yeah, no kidding. I don't know what the f*ck they are thinking. Will be interesting to see if Joanne actually contributes anything of value in mornings. She sucks in afternoons. Gello - who is a great air talent - carried that daypart 100%. Hard to say if this move is a reaction to 98.7's changes or...

The second worst thing about what went down this afternoon is this - we can probably count on 104.3 WOMC going all-Christmas at some point after Thanksgiving after all. :rolleyes I did some quick research as to the impact 94.1 The Sound in Seattle has had on Warm FM there and the impact 98.1 The Bre...
