Re: THE HILLS ARE ALIVE IN PORT HURON

That's sad to hear. The PD (can't remember his name) seemed like a good guy with some cred in AOR. I interviewed with him in Harbor Springs (I was in Lansing at the time) and then met Howard in AA. He was strange.

Re: The "personality" of radio stations

Just about every radio station I worked for scheduled stop-sets at :20, :35 and :50 past the hour. Sometimes the :20 break would give way to an extended music sweep, but the :35 and :50 breaks were pretty standard across the board. Pretty much every station did spot breaks at the same approximate t...

Re: THE HILLS ARE ALIVE IN PORT HURON

That sounds like the format of a sign-on FM in Harbor Springs/Petoskey around 1988. I almost went to work there. Would have been interesting.

Re: Hippie Radio

What station Oo KRKO 1380 is a Classic Hits/Oldies Format with some 60’s influences and and a bit of 80’s but mainly 70’s plus Sports part time, a very male demographic station. That sounds a lot like WWPZ/1340 Petoskey when i worked there in the mid-1980s. Fun little station. Played a lot of '60s,...

Re: Newspaper Website Redesign

Newspaper videos are just bad. Please stop! As to the funny video watching: I was at the gym today, and the person working there was chatting with Loud Guy and then they started watching comedians on video on her phone. It was irritating. Especially Loud Guy. That guy is always in the gym, it seems....

Max Koch! That was/is his name. He recruited me to work there in the early '80s. Super-nice guy. I can't believe he is still there.

Re: WLEW on-air mispoken words

You worked at the Orange??? I was there for oldies, a bankruptcy and the debut of the AOR format. I still hear from Pat now and again. Ted and I are friends to this day. I also worked in the market at 96 Super Q and WRCC. Small world. Yes, I worked at WOOJ for 2 whole weeks. Moved to Florida for a ...

Re: WLEW on-air mispoken words

Great topic. As a former professional radio broadcaster, I sure had my share of goofs.

First time I came across INXS was 1984, WOOJ/Fort Myers, Florida. I pronounced it "Inks." Who knew?

Re: West Michigan Top-of-Hour IDs

I may live in West Michigan now, but I was born at Grace Hospital in Detroit (I don't think it exists anymore) and grew up on the west side of the city of Detroit. I know how to pronounce my Detroit names! :hat

Re: West Michigan Top-of-Hour IDs

I am currently listening to the audiobook of "Black Detroit." Being from Detroit, I am really irritated by the narrator pronouncing Gratiot as "Gra-tee-oht" and Dequindre as "Dee cue-in der" or something like it, instead of "Dee kwin dehr." He also botches Hamtramck into two syllables. |I

59-year-old geezer here. I stopped paying attention to music after leaving radio. So anything after 1998? Except Ariana Grande :horns (Is that a "dirty old man" emoji?)

Re: 98.7 The Breeze (Soft AC) is here!

Doubt we'll hear talent before 2019, but Kevin and Edmonds are no brainers. Delilah tho? NO Delilah would be a trainwreck. For godsakes, keep it local. During my two tours of duty through WFMK, from 7PM to 12M we had "Lights Out" hosted by Jan Russo. Something like that would be amazing, especially...
