Re: Formats during the pandemic

You're probably right, although I can see a psychological advantage to playing music that reminds people of a time before all this shit broke. Call it comfort food for the ears.

Re: Morning show switch at 100.7 WITL

Banana Don is a stand-up guy. Very personable, on and off-air. Reminds me a lot of Allan Gibbs (another Wittle morning alum). Sad to hear he was let go. Unfortunately it's the nature of the business. First thing I learned from my radio instructor in college is that job security is at the bottom of t...

When you all get done kissing each other’s asses things will go back to normal, until then kisses and hugs. :lol
That's okay. We know you can't help peeing in the corner. We'll just lay down some newspaper and move on. :lol

Re: Say something nice about a poster who disagrees with you politically

Matt, Bryce, Turkeytop, TC Talks, Audiophile and MCRF are among the most respectful and articulate people in these parts. We've had our disagreements over the years, but I can always count on them for an open and honest discussion in which we often discover we have more in common than not. I had the...

Re: Anybody go to a Secretary of State office??

My son got his Level 2 graduated license in July. A few weeks after we bought a car through a private sale and had to transfer the title. Both required in-person appointments at the local SOS branch. Luckily we were able to schedule both appointments fairly quick using the next-day option on the web...

Re: A Silver Lining

I think it's a bit prejudice to assume that the actions of a few bad apples define a whole group. How many bikers just want to ride their Harley's and have no interest in stirring up shit? What about the biker groups that engage in charity and raise money for various worthwhile causes? We don't hear...

You do understand that Deleted Use means the person deleted their own account....... This is a tactic most commonly associated with a particular user who has deleted multiple user accounts only to register new accounts and screen names, most likely to dodge the "ignore" option and gain maximum visi...

Re: Easy 93.3

I worked for the MacDonalds in Cadillac in the mid 80s and we had WEVZ-FM, "Easy 96.7" but that easiness could be Zamfir, Perry Como, Mantovani or whatever was on the automated reels. It went over to CHR and WWLZ, "Lakes FM" about 1988 and is now WLXV, playing Country as "The Bull." The old shirts ...

At first, I thought this was replacing Z93 and got stunned.
Under normal conditions I can take the translator signal north to Price Road in Clinton County (five miles south of St. Johns), at which point Z93 overpowers it. On a day when there's good skip I can pick it up in St. Johns proper.

Re: Good News. He's Gone

Congratulations, you cried loud enough. What a pathetic display from so called "grown ups". You are a foreign national and a communist agitator getting people run off the MICHIGAN forum. For shame.

Re: New proposal...get rid of the political boards

I don't believe we're here to be nice to each other. I enjoy spirited debate. But there are some whose mission is to be just rude and obnoxious at every opportunity. Example: A few days ago, a thread involving the state of broadcasting in Canada was generating intelligent discussion until one user ...

Oh... and Turkeyslop? You are a foreign national and a communist agitator. Your opinion regarding United States politics will not be missed. Buh bye. TT has been a valuable contributor to this board.
