Re: The WLLZ Fix List.

Why was the Drew & Mike Show suddenly cut back to Sundays only, and a nearly pre-dawn start time? WTF?

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: Lew Dickey UPDATE

I would enjoy seeing what MW thinks of Lew's latest caper. Will Lew still be able to close the deal? Will SONG hit 400 bucks a share? Stay tuned. :rollin

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 ...

If you are Beaver, I loved when he would make appearances on the show. Rudy was the punching bag but he took it well.

I miss that show.
Nope. I am an entire lifetime older than Beaver.

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

I forgot to name one for my improving column: Clawson. Here's another one for my declining column: Canton. Hell, I'll add Sterling Heights to the "declining" list, too! South end of the city is looking a little rough. Van Dyke thoroughfare isn't what it used to be, and if Lakeside Mall becomes the ...

Re: Kevin Sanderson

I think he was on WDTK 1400 as well. Any updates on Kevin? I am concerned, because it has been quite awhile now, and that's not good. Also, to be honest, the fill-in news & traffic voices that sound like cast members from "The Muppets" are getting more painful to listen to with each passing day. If...

Re: Listeners are abandoning local radio in droves in the Lansing market

The Lansing radio market is no longer relevant. The days of Tim, Rich, etc.. with something interesting to say is gone. There is nothing that distinguishes Lansing from Sirius. Everything is voicetracked, sometimes they even have the wrong days voicetrack airing. The TV stations are the only place ...

Re: Guy Gordon - Epic FAIL

Believe it or not, Guy himself has admitted, on-air, that he almost never listens to WJR, outside of his own show! While I am sure Guy is a decent person, rarely have I heard so many gaffes, factually wrong statements, and a situation where a host is constantly being verbally spanked by his own call...

Guy Gordon - Epic FAIL

Just heard Guy tell a caller in his usual condescending tone "the Dayton shooter had no prior contact with police"...

Does this fool do ANY show prep at all???? The Guy Gordon Show is turning into a daily radio trainwreck.

Re: WJIM stations

You mean Harold Gross? After Gross was Lee Licinger Grant Santimore bought WJIM-AM & FM from Gross. Santimore sold the radio stations to Licinger, who later sold them to Bob Liggett. WJIM-TV (WLNS) was sold to John Backe, who eventually sold it to Young Broadcasting. I never knew Gross, but Grant S...

Re: The Breeze

Right, by all means, let's just keep recycling the same old, tired acts, and tired voices. Ian sounds just fine. As mentioned before, he lacks the overdone "Ron Radio" voice that many of you rubes are accustomed to. That's where the problem is. I've worked with Sandy, but her voicetracked, John Tesh...

Re: IHeart Outages

Microwave STL's, where possible, are the best way to go. If you don't believe me, try to listen to WWJ during a severe weather outbreak. The STL drops multiple times. As I recall, WWJ's "phone line" STL has to pass across 3 different telco carriers between Southfield, and Berlin Township. With Chann...
