Re: Ron Cameron In One Word:

Comeback presumes some previous level of ascendancy. I had a feeling it was time bought on The Patriot, but, I appreciate the delineation. I do remember reading about RC's market presence in the Free Press sports section, 40 years ago. He did predate Frank Beckmann on WJR's Sportswrap, if I am remem...

Re: Ron Cameron In One Word:

Forgive me for not wanting to search through a thread with nearly 1,200 responses, but, where is Cameron buying his time, and can we in the self-torturous realm get a stream of Ron's show? Just in case Advent is also about suffering, prior to a reward, I want to catch some here, this coming weekend ...

Re: Congratulations to WSJM alumnus, Jason Scott

I've heard Jason on the Michigan News Network casts that filter out to affiliates in Ionia and Grand Rapids. Solid as a rock in his delivery, congratulations.

Re: 101.9 wldr

I'm backing up a bit, where comments were made about Fleetwood Mac tunes before the mid 70s, and this is a post to back up "Spare Me A Little Of Your Love" and "Bare Trees," which was the title track of their album in '72. I do remember the days where WLDR and Don Wiitala was carrying TC St. Francis...

Re: Tis the Season

I appreciate knowing this, so I don't try to tune in "The Bay" on my way into Saginaw this Thanksgiving. I can ride Dan and Lomas as I roll past the former Silverdome site, thinking back to Gary Danielson's flat pass one Thanksgiving that LT took in for the day's only touchdown.

Re: The Blarney Stone Broadcasting Legacy

The Leetsville Cafe was their lunchtime show when I was working in the region, mid 1980s.

Terri Ray was there then, and apparently continues now.

Old habits are hard to break, and in time, may become hard to like.

Re: Hoss?

I checked with someone who would know, and the Hoss' work on WTKG ended in 2015, some irreconcilable differences between himself and management, and an attempt to carry on by buying time on WJRW lasted only a short while. Those were some days, though...

Re: Can You Tell Me Before Friday Night...

To update the notion, as the late Joe Falls would do, writing for a small audience, MSU-Illinois is on 101.3 The Brew Saturday, Nov. 9, as Western has become your Bowl-eligible Tuesday night MAC team again next week. Michigan fans sit idle and WOOD carries the middling Griffins.

Re: Find "Waldo" Finster

Living too far away to hear, not satisfied by the Detroit Lions ALERT offered on Facebook that says "will be broadcasted" from this weekend. It's a communications business, with multiple media a constant these days. Endeavor to do it well.

Re: Hoss?

I suppose I could keep in mind to tune my radio to WTKG tomorrow morning, it was several years ago that The Hoss was buying a slot on AM 1230, maybe 8 to 10 a.m. One might give John credit for having the gift of gab sufficient to manage trades for a vehicle to drive, meals to eat, whatever he was pa...

Re: WILZ Tim Brandow mistake??

Have you heard "Lightning Strikes" on this station? Corporately-owned stations like WILZ may not have anything to play but those options installed in their computer, based on what someone in rock programming up the line has decided will be there. "Dude (Looks Like A Lady"), "Janie's Got A Gun", "Liv...

WFYC is where I tune when the Mighty 790 fails me in mid-Michigan and my nature is so abusive that I am trying to find a Tigers ...

Re: Can You Tell Me Before Friday Night...

Regardless of what Michigan fans think, the affiliate agreements all get honored on Saturday night, as 96.1 carries Grand Valley-Edinboro, 101.3 has Western's broadcast from Spartan stadium and George Blaha is heard on 106.9/1300 stating MSU's case against the Broncos.

Re: Can You Tell Me Before Friday Night...

weathernut, your brief suggestion to check the Spartan Sports Network affiliate page shows the GR outlet as WBBL, 107.3. No help found there, can't tell by your name if you are a tree nut or a legume. 96.1 has been where iHeart GR parked Grand Valley football, so it's not entirely "open," format thi...

Re: Can You Tell Me Before Friday Night...

I reached out to a Facebook friend who is a heartbeat away from iHeart GR's choice-making and you are right, primarily 96.1, always Spartan games on an FM signal, with 101.3 the likely landing place when there are Grand Valley/MSU conflicts. It seems that Michigan fans would raise some sort of stink...
