Re: Smitty heading to mornings on The Bear

He’s already said on that video he’s also staying at Right Brain.

Morning show is going to be music intensive with some old features from his afternoon show

No one has mentioned the song that inspired the classic SNL sketch “Don’t fear the reaper” by BOC 😳

Yep - I watched his retirement goodbye. Newscast was running late and Sam Merrill cut Mel’s goodbye memory speech short 🙄

Re: 40 years ago in 1979

Interesting thread! I'm really digging all this history! 1979? We owned Bay City, Saginaw, and Midland at WHNN. I can still smell the Tuscola studios, dump that they were. Yet they still dumped the rock format a few years later for soft rock / AC despite being number 1 overall in the ratings 😡🤬🙄

With the cancellation of Millionaire I checked ABC12's listenings and it looks like they are expanding the noon newscast to an hour. Can anybody confirm this?
They announced it today via Facebook. I’m sure it’s also on their website

With the latest round of closings, how many remain in the state? Only one I can think of is Warren (10/Dequindre). According to an article I read, there will be 3 left in Michigan after the closings If they’re closing the Grayling and Oscoda locations where they have NO COMPETITION (Dollar General ...

Was driving through Flint a couple of weeks ago and heard the Banana seaway from the new one from Tool.....to Queen 🙄🙄🙄

WTF is Townsquare thinking with rock programming with the Banana and GR’s 97.9 GRD?

Re: 40 years ago in 1979

Witch such a rich history, it's a shame that 106.3 has become such a dumpster fire. I've said this a few times, but the opportunity is so ripe to flip to a classic hits format, something the region is sorely missing, and call it Classic Hits 106. 97.7 WMPX Midland flipped to Classic Hits earlier th...

Re: Sirius XM...

As mentioned in another thread, they have terrible and pushy customer service. So, so many horror stories of their shady billing practices when you are trying to cancel. They definitely do NOT make it easy and don't take no for an answer. Adding insult to injury you can't cancel your membership onl...

Re: Ken Evans Out at 105.3

It blows my mind that Cumulus screwed up the antenna for LAV so badly that you can barely pick it up in Lansing (tried to do so while traveling to GR Sunday night). Have to wait until you get into Ionia County before it comes in somewhat OK...

Re: Q106 interference

Don’t blame them - once you start getting towards the Ionia / Kent Co line on I 96, Q106 is gone as it’s heavily interfered with by the Ticket. It’s BS but I’m sure there was some malicious intent on the part of Cumulus to do so as it would cause people to tune into LAV
