Re: Michigan football - predictions

So far, Michigan D-line is playing like shit. Wisconsin has scored easy TDs on 2 of 3 drives so far. Moving the ball at will. Very untimely fumble on Michigan's opening drive on or near the Badgers 5 yard line by a player who had no prior carries this season. It nullified a marvelous pass by Patters...

Re: WWJ signal problems?

Yeah, I noticed a weaker than usual early morning signal several days back. Some unusual fading & peaking. Also, 760 WJR has sounded terrible lately. Their audio is excessively loud and distorted. It sounds that way on every radio in the house. Does their moronic Program Director believe making the ...

Re: Detroit rapper and comedian tries to cash in on UAW strike

is this song (I feel guilty even calling this pile of crap a "song") an example of the "Urban Alternative" format some kale & avocado loving, dirty laundry wearing, androgynous hipsters are trying to foist onto FM radio? GmacCash used to work for Chrysler, he said, but is not currently an automotive...

Re: The WLLZ Fix List.

Not a single post to be found on 106.7's Facebook page regarding the absence of the Drew & Mike show.

Think the station is scrubbing those posts from its page?

Re: It's official - 105.9 Kiss is now owned by Beasley

Given the fact 105.9 airs syndicated programming in both AM and PM Drive, I've not noticed a big difference in music. I'l listen a bit this weekend and will post my observations here. Edit - OK, so I've listened a while. During weekdays, the programming largely sounds the same as before. The station...

Re: The WLLZ Fix List.

Yup. 106.7 Fake Wheels is playing music as I'm typing this. From eight hours a week down to a measly two for D&M. Wow. Pretty obvious WLLZ was only "using" the Drew & Mike brand to generate some buzz around the station. To air several hours of talk radio on Saturday & Sunday morning runs contradicto...

Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

Thank goodness the radio station changed its name from Channel 105.5 to Q105.5 / Q105 a couple years ago! That clearly has helped the ratings! :lol

Re: LAV who?

Great.

Cheap syndie garbage off a satellite at night and probable voice tracking (from someone whose ratings at 105.3 have stunk) in middays.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!!

The jock line up at LAV was perfect as-is.

Does this mean Stiller is out of a job?

Re: Trump doesn't understand monetary policy - and it's frightening

There is no reason to "spur exports." Our economy is doing fine as-is. A massive interest rate drop would do much more harm than good long term and would remove any ability to juice the economy via monetary policy once a stimulus is actually needed. The trade deficit is a widely misunderstood statis...

Re: The WLLZ Fix List.

The station was doing a live remote late Sunday morning for a "Lions tailgate" and wanted to play music, I guess.

Are you sure about Saturday morning?

Re: 930/102.7 in Battle Creek flips to Classic Hits

You're right, Michigan Media. Spring book ratings were excellent for 930 / 102.7. I had no idea the ratings were that strong (although, it *does* make sense that the station attracted a sizable audience given the fact Calhoun County is ~11% African American and lacks R&B music elsewhere on the FM di...
