Re: Alice 106.7

Alice was Peter Connolly's idea, and the beginning of 106.7 being a cursed frequency.

Re: AMP 98.7 flipping!

Who is the guy on 98.7 during the afternoon gabfest who sounds like an old geezer, trying to be "hip"? He has a grating, gravelly voice, and claims to "represent" Livonia, whatever the hell that means? Unrelated, but along more authentic Alternative lines, whatever happened to Afentra? I know she lo...

Re: Rest Stop / Gymnastics Coach

Am I the only one wondering why charges weren't brought against this man sooner? Otherwise, I concur with Matt. The parents of these girls should be ashamed of themselves, for not seeing what was really going on here, and the fact that in many cases, their own daughters were afraid to tell them. A ...

At least a few years; have heard the song on Riff many times.

The Verve, Bittersweet Symphony on WRIF?

I was pleasantly surprised to hear this song on WRIF this afternoon, in between Bush, "Machine Head" and Skid Row, "18 And Life". How long has The Verve been in regular rotation on WRIF?

Sounds very AOR-ish. :hat

This is not the first attempt at Classic Country on 1310. Fabiano-Strickler tried it briefly when they owned WCCW.

Re: 106.7 on the air?

Would either 99.7 or 99.9 make suitable translators? Completely forgot about 100.1 WOUF so 99.9 would be out. 99.9 would work as WOUF is a Class A. For comparison, there's a translator on 100.3 about 21 miles from Class A WTRV on 100.5. WOUF's licensed TL is at least 25 miles from the TC tower farm...

Re: Blarney Stone Petitions FCC to cancel WLDR license

So, Roy sold his palatial home on Lake Conroe, north of Houston, and now (presumably) lives in an apartment in Grand Rapids. I never thought I would see that happen. Roy will hang on to these financially and technically hobbled radio stations until the very end. With him being in his 70s (most like...

Re: Tom Jordan to WJR?

Going to station that's clearly For Sale doesn't seem like a very wise move, but who knows what's happening behind the scenes. Even with all of California's problems, if I were Tom, I'd be tempted to return to the sunshine of San Diego. Strange, how so many people from California seem to end up at W...

Re: Fault 98.7 cannot even get its music log right...

Nearly all the songs played can be heard on Sirius XM Lithium at least occasionally. So sick of "My Own Worst Enemy" by Lit. I wish that song would go away. Porno for Pyros' "Pets" is the only pick that has thoroughly impressed me so far. Other than that ubiquitous song by Lit, I've enjoyed the sel...

Sold! $110,000.

RadioInsight has the report.

A nonprofit purchased the station.
This goes to show where the values really are on these rimshot facilities. I may be wrong, but didn't Dan Dudley get a couple MILLION for this clunker?

Re: CKUE 95.1 Interference?

The dead air carrier is present at 95.1 MHz as we speak. Is it completely overpowering CKUE at your location? Where I am, west northwest of you, the dead carrier is in the background, making CKUE sound fuzzy. This has to stop. There is no FCC rule that allows a station to broadcast a dead carrier, ...
