Re: Fox 2 Abruptly Suspends M.L. Elrick's Popular Podcast

It was carried on Drew Lane's "Red Shovel Network". WRIF also made Bentley quit the podcast. As stated above, I don't think they like the competition

Re: Unique Radio Experiences

Greg St. James was one of the guys who started 89X. Before that he was a DJ at WRIF. I remember driving home late one night from my girlfriend's house listening to WRIF. Greg was signing off for the night but hinted he was done at WRIF and moving on to something much different. On his way out the do...

Re: Buzzboard on Drew and Mike

Drew has been talking about the buzzboard for years! Frequently he mentions how negative everyone is here. Oh yeah, he still does long segments on reality TV (Bachelor) but the podcast is still mostly pretty damn good. I love the little fast forward button on my phone for the occasional unlistenable...

Re: Drew and Mike is Boring Radio

I really like the podcast but I don't keep up with every episode. I think the Sat/Sun morning could be difficult for someone to follow who was not already a podcast listener as it is all over the map topic wise. I have listened to a few of the morning things and I'd rather just listen to an episode ...

Re: Why WAAM Went Silent

So now WAAM is touting an FM broadcast as well as AM. What I don't get is they claim to be broadcasting on 92.7 FM but only to the west of Ann Arbor. I have tried 92.7 in my car a few places around metro Detroit and I pick up a religious station but not WAAM. It is hard for me to believe this could ...

Would this be the "Bowling for dollars" Bob Allison?

AM 680?

While driving down Michigan Ave. in Inkster this morning I hit scan on my radio and it stopped at AM 680 which was playing Dock of the Bay by Otis Redding. After the song was over at 8 AM a voice said "we now ask you to change your station", then static. Was it a pirate station or something?

Thanks
