Had I been listening, I probably would've barfed projectiles.

Listening to Price is a treat by comparison.

Re: Kudos to WWJ Newsradio 950

Per C and G News, the cause of the fire at Primo's Pizza was attributed to HVAC equipment on the roof. Reportedly, HVAC repair work was performed earlier that day. It is unclear from the article if the repair work was botched and directly led to the fire. The black smoke was caused by roofing materi...

Re: Smitty

Not suggesting The Bear is poised to shake it up and breathe life into rock radio, as musically, rock has been in a lull in what it's churned out for quite some time (aside from perhaps Shinedown and the Foo Fighters). Yuck. I absolutely HATE Shinedown's music from the past decade +. First two albu...

Re: Free Beer and Hot Wings now Mornings at WMMQ?

I didn't realize that; thanks for the info! The ratings took a nosedive when they were airing the repackaged syndie show from the west coast. (Cannot recall now if it was Brooke & Jeffrey or the Jubal Show.) I am very pleased to see the station quickly reversed course. It'll be interesting to see if...

Hey, 96.3 WDVD - your audio sounds like horse shit - FIX IT!!!

WDVD's audio chain has sounded like a complete abortion for two weeks running now. Zero mid range, excessively obtrusive bass, and high end treble that is off the charts. Is Cumulus chasing listeners to the exits on purpose?!?! As a listener, shit like this drives me nuts. WDVD = "We're Detroit's Ve...

Re: What's the deal with 88.7 CIMX's signal?

88.9 WTPG did increase the strength of its signal in the direction of Toledo a few years ago. Bell Media neglects Windsor when it comes to capital resources. I suspect there is a lot of equipment in use that is in proverbial "limp home" mode. CIMX's transmission antenna has been functioning erratica...

Re: Rob WLHT

I thought he did an excellent job; big loss for that station. Arguably the most talented afternoon drive personality in the market. WLHT is underachieving and needs a new morning show...BAD! The loss of Connie was a very big setback for them. The lack of compelling current & recurrent product in the...

A gripe with Q106 (your new audio processing settings SUCK)

Someone made adjustments to the audio chain recently, and I cannot stand it! The high end (treble) is cranked so off the charts that it makes for a fatiguing listening experience. Reminds me of nails on a chalkboard. Too bad - because I generally love the music choices on the station. The unbearable...

Re: Sinclair’s 60 Minutes Hit Job

I see nothing wrong with the Sinclair story nor the State of Florida's partnership with Publix. It's no different than the State of Michigan's partnership with Meijer.

Tigers Woods gets special treatment from the L.A. Sheriff's Department

First, the fact the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. claimed that it had to request "permission" from Woods to release the cause of his vehicular collision is total bullshit. Who has ever heard of such a thing?!?! The causes of vehicular collisions involving common people are routinely reported in the ne...

Re: Michigan basketball looking damn good

Mike Smith has announced he'll be entering the NBA draft.

I appreciate his toughness and wish him the best but I won't be shedding any tears over his departure. I hope his successor is a more consistent scorer.

Re: 106.9fm Runs out of energy in Milwaukee

Well, so far, the format is performing horribly in the ratings on 50 kW WBFX in Grand Rapids. To TeddyBear - 106.9's signal in the Milwaukee metro does suck whenever DX-ing conditions are favorable. Also, their signal is quite directional, as the map from R-L attests. If you get more than, say, 10 m...
