Re: Warren Pierce

I used to enjoy Dick Purtan's spoofs of Warren Pierce. Those spoofs were quite accurate! Word is, Warren hated them, which makes it even funnier. Warren's popularity was in the 1970's, as WJR's evening host. His show was a mixture of music and conversation. He was still Warren, but for that time sl...

Re: Andy Stuart out?

Pretty big news as one of the last radio moguls to reside in Toledo, he ran ClearChannel in it's heyday with Shaffer pissing off Carty and the Blade, afternoon shows on WSPD that pissed off minorities, but it delivered ratings and probably some ad dollars. Then he did stupid stuff like fire Jim Fel...

The Toledo Cluster looks awful, XKR,RQN,and K 100 are fine, but the rest of is an epic mess. 105.5 at a 1 share, 106.5 and 100.7 are not going to be bread winners but my god there pathetic.

Re: Fred Heumann out

Fred is extremely talented, and deserves better treatment than this. At a minimum, he belongs back in Detroit, or in some other major market. Let the CMU grads cut their teeth in bush-league markets like Lansing.

Re: WWJ signal problems?

There's no STA currently on file for WWJ to operate at reduced power. For a site that's only 20 or so years old, there sure do seem to be a lot of recurring issues there.

Re: WPON WCXI Updates - 2019

When I worked at 'PON, we had a very specific contract that had to be signed to anyone that wanted to purchase time after pattern change. Weekends in the winter were a bitch, since we had ethnic programs that ran past 5:00pm. I used to hear "YOU LEAVE F***ING POWER UP" on a regular basis. WPON shou...

Re: WPON WCXI Updates - 2019

In my opinion, these piece of shit stations will never make it to the air so long as they remain under their current ownership. I've been saying that for over five years straight now! My guess is Mr. Birach is trying to kick the can down the road as far as possible in hopes of finding a buyer. He l...

Re: Which Metro Detroit cities are declining and which are improving?

Hazel Park was a cheaper, working class town that now has a growing arts and culinary scene spilling over from Ferndale that has repurposed old buildings and brought higher education and income levels into the city. Ferndale itself continues to grow and change into a more modern and more expensive ...
