Re: bidet and McReason.

I saw LOL101 on Twitter a few weeks ago making "gay" comments about media. Repeatedly, in same fashion.

Re: I Am Your Governor...

I used to work in retail. I have on many occasions received phone calls from customers pretending to be somebody else if they thought it would mean they would potentially receive special treatment. Even if this story is true as told, until I see the face of the person on the phone, I don't believe t...

Re: Ken Jennings as Jeopardy! Host

I'm sorry, but I cannot get over Ken Jennings' raspy voice. He doesn't have the voice or the personality for this role. Similar sentiments were conveyed when Drew Carey replaced the late Bob Barker on The Price Is Right back in 2007. Like that show, Jeopardy! is such an institution that I believe s...

Re: Where's Art Bell When You Need Him?

George Noory has turned boring and nutty. The alternative medicine peddling, political conspiracies, poor interviews, and all the nonsense was making C2CAM unlistenable for me. I'm not opposed to a little craziness, that's the essence of the show, but this became too out in left field for me. I used...

Re: Will WJR Soon Drop Talk For All News?

Talk, news, politics, sports, music, etc etc etc. Same tired formats. Radio hasn't seen new programming concepts since television knocked it to a new purpose. I'd like to see radio evolve and recapture growing audiences with new programming concepts, rather than the continuously-recycled, cost-effec...

Re: Frank Beckmann to retire from WJR

I wish him well in retirement. That length of time on the same station is quite an accomplishment, and I know he had many loyal listeners. I stopped listening a long time ago when the politics seemed to move further away from my views and I couldn't relate. Any speculation on if this announcement is...

Also, R.I.P. 98.7 The Breeze, I loved their JAM jingles.
I have HD radio in my car, so I listen to WNIC-HD2. I am pretty sure WNIC's "Sunny Radio" and The Breeze had the identical jingles.

Re: RIP 89X

I am 36. I am also delighted 580 survived (at least for now). I am listening to it right now while I work, as I typically do. (As I was preparing to "tape" the 89X and 93.9 switch on an old tape and tape recorder because my computer doesn't have a line-in input anymore, the tape I grabbed had an old...

Re: 89X,93.9 The River & AM580 are Gone

Why do you say AM 580 is gone? 580's Twitter and Facebook are still in existence; 89X and 93.9 The River are not.

Re: Old WJR Radio Guide

I loved these things pre-internet. I would grab a new one whenever I went to Big Boy, stick it in my glove box, and would take it with me when the family would travel. I still have one.

Re: C2CAM gone from CKLW?

Well, C2C never came back to CKLW in its full capacity. Unrelated, I noticed the past few nights that WCAR has been off the air, so I got to work trying to DX 1080 and 1100. This was an opportunity for me since I live a mile from WCAR and it’s a nuisance signal to me, typically preventing me from he...

Re: Most distant AM/FM/TV signal you ever tuned in?

This must be a season of intense e-skip. Yesterday WDZH 98.7 was wiped out by KLUV-FM 98.7 from Dallas Ft. Worth - a distance of somewhere between 1,200 and 1,300 miles. This is probably my farthest FM catch. I received this on accident in my truck along I-94 south of Port Huron - no big/high antenn...
