Re: WJIM stations

If I remember correctly, back in the mid 70's MSU applied to the FCC for a student run FM, and Gross blocked it because it was too close to the audio frequency for Channel 6. It took years, but MSU finally got that station...I think it was in the mid to late 80's...I think it became "The Impact".

Re: Worst Tower Sites For Getting Stuck-Water, Mud, Sand, Snow, Ice, Grade, etc.

I worked at WSAM from 1984-1987. With C-Quam, it sounded better than the FM's in the market.

Re: Jennifer Ann Wilson's downtown Plum Market puff piece on WXYZ

I think this "Food Desert" label everybody is using is a piece of crap. Is the whole area covered in sand, with 120 degree temps????

The Tigers should just put on old George Kell and Ernie Harwell tapes and get rid of Sheppard and Dickerson.

Re: Matt Sheppard

Not to get way off topic, but does John Keating seem to be in love with his voice and/or style?

Re: Overplayed Classic Rock Songs

While these songs are burnt to a crisp, and it's a great idea to play deeper album cuts, it'll never happen, and I'll tell you why. To the average listener, these are recognizable songs. They want songs they know. No PD or MD worth his/her weight in you-know-what is going to program a bunch of B-sid...

Re: Time-Life Music on CD

I got in on Time-Life back in the early 90's. Have most all of the collections, from the early 50's to the 80's. Great stuff.

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

Classic Rock is so wide open these days. I guess it depends on what demo they're going after. Us old farts still like our Hendrix, Zepplin, and the Doors.
