Re: A gripe with Q106 (your new audio processing settings SUCK)

Can someone explain to me what it is that makes it so difficult for audio engineers to make their stations sound good? Is it really rocket science? Because it blows my mind how many stations on the FM dial sound like utter garbage from a technical standpoint. This is something that should be a non-...

Wasnt the Sonic Rendezvous WRIF's answer to WABX's Dangerous Xposure show sunday nights with Steve Kostan???

Re: Say what you want about Cumulus, but this is an EXCELLENT hire...

What tangible, meaningful changes can we actually expect from this guy at 93.1? He'll change the lightbulb in his office and change the toilet paper in the men's room. Don't expect too much more than that. Corporate calls the shots. Guys like him are there to enforce it. He probably won't be there ...

Re: WDET / New Transmitter/ Jesus Christ Superstar

I don't think the station "whining" about it; they are simply making it known to their listeners that they are aware of the issue, what is being done to resolve it, and why a permanent fix has not already been instituted. Inclusion of the price tag is perhaps being done to induce listeners' financi...

Well, the threats (perceived or not) from the GM sure don't seem to be preventing folks from leaving!
The problems in the Fisher Building are all due to management at the local level. That comes from sources on the inside, the few who remain.

Who is the guy on 98.7 during the afternoon gabfest who sounds like an old geezer, trying to be "hip"?
