Re: WWV / WWVH

When I was a kid, I sent for a QSL card from Radio Havana; I got junk mail from them for 5 years, the CIA probably thought I was on the red list! Actually, as a teen, I used to listen to HCJB for the DX Party Line and learned a lot about shortwave - A recording from Glen Hauser was frequently on the...

Re: Antenna TV gone?

Did a rescan, and the WMNT subchannels are on the wrong channels, the descriptions are there, but for the wrong channels and my TV will not decode 48.2 but it will 36.4 or 36.6 - WTH is going on there?

Thanks for giving me a good laugh today Brian- the sad thing is, that's probably how you really feel and what Art Van customers have been screwed-over. I questioned when they built a monster sto...

Re: No love for the FCC?

innate-in-you, interesting theories; prevent competition between AM and FM, which is what made radio so good in the 70's. Canada and Australia both embraced AM stereo, and Sony sold their goods there, but you couldn't buy those nice CQUAM tuners here in the USA other than three portables. Interestin...

Re: WVKS (92-5 Kiss FM) Music Choice?

I used to sit in a hotel auditorium for 2 hours and listen to 500 K-100 songs and rate them; that was a good 15 years ago, when they actually gave a shet about what songs people thought were burned-out, overplayed, or liked.

Hey Cumulus, check out how well it works when you sell your real estate and hope to rent it back- it buys you one year in business and they you're screwed.

Re: Towers? We Don't Need No Stinking Towers

So, let's say that the company that buys all of the Cumulus towers realizes that 25% of their AM towers are worth more in real estate and trash the AM towers and sell the land under them. What does Cumulus do for their AM stations? Most would go dark, except, I hope, they would keep their 50KW stati...

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

How long with the Franken CH6 analog stations remain on air? The MeTV FM/TV6 audio gets better ratings than WLS-AM, so that is a concern.

Re: Judge Judy adjourns court

Judy was making more than Oprah per year when the big O left broadcasting. She has so damn much money she could let freaking Jerry Springer's POS show continue, collect the cash and live on an island. She ought to start a game show for afternoons?
