Re: 760 WJR must be broadcasting at reduced power right now

760 sounded a bit better in the GR area last weekend but still somewhat weaker than normal.

A massive orange sign in the front entryway of the Maple & Woodward Kroger in Birmingham posted by the Michigan Liquor Control Commission reads: "This store was caught selling liquor to an underaged minor. As a result, this store's liquor license has been suspended for three days and is ORDERED by l...

Re: June 2024 ratings

With even older demos than those who currently listen to 760!

MOR died as a viable radio format for good reason. The music is unbearably boring!!!

Re: ESPYS

The ESPY awards bore me and do not belong on broadcast network TV in primetime. The ratings have long been poor. In A18 to 49, I believe I read this year's show only generated a 0.4 rating. That's pitiful.

Re: Biden looks a little out of place

Overall, I thought Biden did a decent job tonight. The "Vice President Trump" flub was a low point certainly, but his comments and responses tonight were lucid for the most part.

It was a stronger performance than his George S. interview.

He'd fit in well at channel 7 behind the anchor desk.

Shithead (President Biden) is now more than 30 minutes late to his own news conference.

Okur was a damn good player in his prime. A marvelous second round draftee, taken 38th overall by the Pistons.

Re: Weather reporting

I am quite worried about the urban and small stream flooding potential late tonight through Wednesday across southern and central MI. Later this week into the weekend, river flooding could be a significant threat in some locales. A very slow moving band of heavy showers with some imbedded thundersto...

Re: Bland Rebrand For WFGR

I still fully haven't gotten over the abandonment of the "98 WGRD" moniker circa 1994. 🙂

"97-9 GRD" will never sound quite correct to my ears.

Greenville and Ionia area businesses usually have little reason to pay GR ad rates. They have WION and WGLM on which to place advertising.

Re: Detroit Pistons 2023-24

Kamen lives in the Grand Rapids area. My dad saw him at a local retailer a number of years ago. He spoke with him briefly and said he's a nice guy.

That column from Albom most likely is yet another example of fiction he is trying to pass off as fact.

Re: Weather reporting

The number of confirmed tornadoes in Michigan where no tornado watch (not to be confused with a tornado warning) was in effect in advance has been unacceptably high these past several years, in my opinion. A much higher percentage of our tornadoes have occurred on non-tornado watch days than those t...
