Re: 101.9 wldr

Wow. Reading that Mary Rogers article makes it sound like podcasting is a waste of time, especially as a business.
And what is radio TK?

Sorry. Don't watch TV news anymore. Barely know any of them.

Re: Detroit Tigers

Gardenhire is doing the best he can with a rag-tag team if there ever was one. This is on Avila: Rebuilding is one thing, but you still have to put together a roster of a semi-competitive team. Otherwise, charge minor league prices. The fans (I know I am) need to stay away until they do. As to the d...

Re: 94.5 The Q - new format is Adult Album Alternative

Yes, I am completely underwhelmed by this bland "different" Q. I put it on my car presets, but I will be changing that very soon. Boring. Boring. Boring. Once in a while will I hear an "oh wow" song. Otherwise, it's boring as all hell. The on-air people (are they canned?) are bland if not bad. It co...

Re: 94.5 The Q - new format is Adult Album Alternative

I'm surprised no one has mentioned that there is now live talent on air at the Q. I don't listen much, but I heard a woman stumble through a segue Friday afternoon. I also heard what sounded like a high school girl late Thursday, shortly before midnight. Why do jox have to say things like "that's al...

Re: Turn DOWN your thermostat! Really?!

I had been smelling a rat. MW, I think your theory about DTE/Consumers makes a lot of sense here. And one strike against the new governor for sending out that alert without all of the facts. She set off a crapstorm without all of the facts. What the hell is wrong with her? Will I come to regret not ...

I'm underwhelmed. Of course, I likely am not the target, but I am not liking the library.

Maybe the microwave is between the antenna and the tower?
Thanks for the theory. But no, it isn't. The mic is west of the TV and the tower/antenna are south.

Re: VHF signal quality issues on Fox 2

Update: Discovered this morning that when I run the microwave oven in the next room (kitchen), it wipes out the VHF channels. Not the UHF channels. As soon as the microwave goes off, the VHF channels return! This did not happen on the TV downstairs. So, the microwave is interferring with the VHF fre...

Re: VHF signal quality issues on Fox 2

Being in West Michigan, I catch OTA Grand Rapids and Kzoo stations with an antenna up about 35 feet, pointed to Kzoo. In the past couple of weeks, I noticed the VHF signals would all drop out together, while the UHF signals remained the same. That includes WOOD (8), which is one of the strongest sig...

Re: Spectrum subscribers lose access to WXMI

Yeah, screw 'em. I have an antenna in the air and get broadcast HD for free. I only subscribe to Netflix.

Whenever I am at someone's house with cable or dish, I am flabbergasted at how many commercials are on the channels they pay (often $100 to $200 a month) for.

Re: Best Christmas Songs...

My apologies in advance, but I like the Barking Dogs. That cracks me up every time. Just like the Subaru commercials with the dogs.

I also miss Yorgi Yorgensen's "I Yust Go Nuts at Christmas."
