What's the Hold Up?

I see everyone lamenting the loss of the oldies channel, and the over all shrinkage of our business. I wonder though, how many have just sat down and built their own answer to the problem? Not that hard to do and there seem to be plenty of people out there to make it work. I will tell you, it's a bi...

Re: Jackie Green - Mrs. America

sorely disappointed in the lack of the most basic courtesy in honoring an achievement. if any of you are in fact in radio, it's proof that all that's left are cannibals and watching you eat your kin while a few try to remain above the fray is the death null. continue to revel in your misery. i thoug...

Jackie Green - Mrs. America

As part of the old farts club now, I take great pride in watching some of the folks who came along a little later than me, including Jackie. I don't think there's anything she can't do and last night, she was crowned Mrs. America. Congrats to her!

Re: Changing of the Guard at WZZM

be realistic. life is turning to shit at these places and the seasoned pros lives are being made impossible to cut salaries and eventually consolidate "local news" in to regional hubs like chicago and detroit. hey, the model worked for radio and tv in the stock holders eyes.

H*** Amount of Equipment

I put this in the marketplace section too, but figured since the stuff is all in Fremont, maybe someone around here could use a peek. Hello All, I recently found a sale on FB Marketplace that is the estate sale of Bob Moore. He had a company called Mooretronics in Fremont. I was literally floored wh...

A Motherload of Radio Equipment

Hello All, I recently found a sale on FB Marketplace that is the estate sale of Bob Moore. He had a company called Mooretronics in Fremont. I was literally floored when I got there to find a 6 car garage and barn filled with radio stuff. A lot of it is analog. A lot of it is buried in boxes and the ...

Re: West Michigan Radio Websites are miserably short of content.

Re: non commercial fm radio in G.R.

eclectic isn't necessarily a novelty. don't forget, radio is as much of an art as it is a business. The Devil went down to Georgia is a 1979 single, "And earlier" is not what I consider a viable country format. Likewise the WYCE format is not viable. Without donations, it would wither and die. It's ...

WYCE is a novelty station. It wants to be all for everyone, but until it's music library contains just one country recording it has nothing to offer me.

Re: WOOD-FM transmitter fried by lightning strike

Well, the economy of Muskegon county could be better if the reach out of it for local business and events could actually reach other markets. It's also the ad rate the locals have to pay compared to the national chains who pay pennies on the dollar. It's bullshit and everyone knows it The economy of...

Re: WOOD-FM transmitter fried by lightning strike

WSNX changed its primary focus to Grand Rapids in 1996, when the station was still under Goodrich ownership. For a spell, the studios were on Horizon Dr. near I-96 and 28th Street. Given the fact the station sold for $10 million and witnessed large gains in Kent County listenership following that s...

Re: Thoughts on Rush Limbaugh's legacy

Correction: I gave him a pass on his drug addiction. I only called out his hypocrisy. If you are pointing it out years later, are you REALLY giving him a pass? We live in a world of hypocrites... As long as you are calling everyone out for their hypocrisy equally, not just the conservative talkers....
