Re: WCXI 1160 Republican Talk Radio

I wish Cumulus, if not on WJR, would have most of the WWTN Nashville lineup on WWCK (AM) 1570 and build the CP for the 107.3 translator. The 9-12 CDT host, Michael DelGiorno was born in Flint and lived there until his father, Bob Dell (DelGiorno), left WTAC Big 600 and went to Westinghouse Broadcast...

Re: WTCM-FM 103.5, etc.

They are all in and by far the #1 stations and cluster in Rochester, MN, which is Nielsen Market #222. They also have three translators "right downtown". If I were the other owners, I'd be concerned if they were coming to town.

Re: WTCM-FM 103.5, etc.

John DeGroot got out at the right time, and stayed out. Del Reynolds got out at the right time, but then "they pulled him back in". Now it appears like the Biederman family business is likely leaving RADIO after 80 YEARS in Northern Michigan. I think that WWRM...WSRT 106.7 may sign back on July 4 or...

Stretch-O-Vision. You mean the one that makes William Shatner look like Jabba The Hut on the Sleep Apnea commercials, and makes all the women look fat?

Re: Dixie Chicks drop the "dixie"

There was a Black English teacher in a predominantly White High School in a large Urban City in Michigan in the 1960s. He was also a Broadcaster who had worked the South before and returned to the South for a new higher paying Broadcasting position. He loved the South, he just hated institutionalize...

Re: Dixie Chicks drop the "dixie"

"Black And White" by Three Dog Night will just be "And", and most of the lyrics will be gone. And the classic "Bye Bye Blackbird" will just be known as "Bye Bye Bird". "Say It Loud, I'm Black And I'm Proud", by James Brown will just be "Say It Loud, I'm And I'm Proud". BTW, James Brown is likely spi...

Re: Dixie Chicks drop the "dixie"

In other news, Barry White will now be known as just "Barry", Betty White will now just be known as "Betty".

Black Water by the Doobie Brothers will just be known as "Water".

I'm sure K-Love will do well with that facility. LCC will get a ton of money for it. Win win.

"Breakfast At Tiffany's" Receives Trigger Warning

I know that many of you have probably never seen the movie, and probably are even perplexed by the meaning of the song by Deep Blue Something. It's preplexing to me. Someone told me it's because a Caucasian played an actual Asian. If you and your significant other both like "Breakfast At Tiffany's, ...

Re: Lima/Lima

Buena Vista Township was aptly named. Buena Vista is Spanish for "Good View", in case you didn't know. When it was farms, you could see across the entire township at 5 feet above ground level. It's basically flat as a pancake, and only a few feet above Lake Huron level. If you drive there, you'll se...

Re: Lima/Lima

There’s Clio that they call “Cleo”. There used to be a Friday Night Football Scoreboard Show on WJR, and they had an announcer from Ohio who used to mispronounce numerous city names in Michigan. Wisconsin town names are difficult, though if you have friends and relatives there for a long time, you g...

Re: House Hunters: Flint edition, 100% FAKE

There is a house in Flint with 11 bedrooms and 10000-20000 square feet quoted on various sites, no doubt due to whether finished basements and carriage houses with living areas are included or not. Before the crash in 2008, it was assessed at $1,000,000. After the crash, it fell to about $300,000, a...
