Re: We live in fame or go down in flame................

Did 1340 have any semblance of traction when it flipped to Solid Gold for a few years in the 80s?

Of course, the instant 93.7 flipped to Classic Hits, I suspect the viability of KOOL 1340 was destroyed.

Re: Toledo Station For Sale

That is easily the most insane daytime coverage pattern for an AM station I've ever seen!

With a pattern like that, it cannot be considered a viable Toledo metro signal. There are definitely sizable areas on the north side of town where the signal is garbage.

Re: Will 98.3 in Monroe Re-brand or Flip?

Never hear of WCSX? They are directional, nulling near Monroe. WCSX is licensed omni. The signal doesn't sound so hot in Monroe on some receivers because adjacent channel WXKR is enhanced by Lake Erie. WXKR's signal definitely outperforms predicted contours in its northern null. I used to be able t...

Re: Black Diamond Broadcast Group has filed a $500,000 deal to buy hot AC WCFX, Clare, MI (95.3)

Is 95.3 CFX actually Hot AC? I thought they were still CHR/Pop?
...but only classic hits WUPS, Harrison, MI (98.5) will overlap with WCFX.
Inside Radio is wrong; they are forgetting about 97.7 in Beaverton, which certainly delivers a usable signal to Mt. Pleasant and a very good signal to Clare.

Re: We live in fame or go down in flame................

I think 1340 was already a throwaway A.M. for a good five years before they arrived in town! I remember them doing afternoons at 1340 before being upgraded to mornings at 97Rock WLAV. The Underground was a cool station for its time. My memory of it is ridiculously faint unfortunately. They and 1140 ...

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

Reception did seem crappier than usual in the Brighton area along I-96 Easter weekend, so it might be more than just something in the rack dying. For the most part, I've liked 93.1's processing as a Country station. It usually sounds bright but clean. Bass is produced accurately, too. Not a fan of t...

Re: WNEM up for sale?

Scripps buying WNEM? No thanks. Already sick of seeing Scripps' dark blue, bland chyrons on the stations it owns. They also aren't doing a very good job running the WXMI news operation. WOOD, WZZM and WWMT all look visually superior to WXMI these days, and in terms of timely reporting of hard news, ...

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

The scary thing is - the audio chain this week on WDVD has actually sounded a little bit better this week compared to the previous couple weeks. It remains suboptimal, though. Not enough mid-range and the low bass remains too obtrusive. Completely agree about 760 WJR's audio sounding like total hors...

Re: We live in fame or go down in flame................

The station still is licensed for 320,000 to this very day, TC Talks. Hard to tell, though, with the all the drop-in Class A allotments that have been granted over the past 25 years. 93.7 WKAD really f*cks with B93 in the Big Rapids and Bitely areas between M-20 and US-10; those are places where B93...

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...

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...
