Re: 10”?

So, as of 8:45pm, TWC shows 1-3” predicted for tonight (for Novi)....down from 5-8” earlier.

Then switched back to 3-5” a few minutes later.

Re: WRIF 50 year b-day?

In 1976 or so, WRIF was even playing a bit of Stevie Wonder, and Earth, Wind & Fire from their albums at the time. The playlists reported on Radio and Records showed this. Interesting....

10”?

Andrew Humphrey’s map at 6:00 showed 10” of snow for parts of SE Michigan. Yet, we only have a Winter Weather Advisory. Do you think that this is typical weathercaster hype?

WGPR HD2

I’m assuming that this is recent? The music so far resembles the old WGPR.

On a separate note, who runs this station these days?

Re: Ben Bailey cannot forecast worth a shit!!!

It’ll be interesting to see what happens with the weather this weekend and early next week, as the next polar vortex has been predicted. Some models show lows in the -9° range early next week. A few weeks back, the Weather Channel predicted February to be above normal in temps, and March to be much ...

Didn’t Tom work in Detroit as a DJ? Perhaps, wxyz?
Yes, Tom worked at Musicradio WXYZ in the mid 1970s. There is an aircheck of his on www.mcrfb.com.

Flipping DRQ to soft AC would be wise.
Their country days have consistently failed.
Soft AC on 93.1? Back to W-Lite would be cool, which had that 10+year run starting in ‘85. Does Cumulus do Soft AC in any of the markets that they serve?

Re: The Breeze Drifts Away

Yes - too bad it’s gone. It’s funny that it still was using “new” after two years. I’m amazed at the fact that the library was so small for most of its existence. IMO, it was most interesting in the first few months. I remember hearing some softer ELO songs, and songs such as “You and Me” by Alice C...

Re: RIP 89X

Between More 94 and the recreation of the Big 8 Sound (1992-ish); and certainly before Arrow and the Jeff Zippy Crowe days there was “I-94” in early 1991, which was an early classic soul format.

Re: 98.7 The Breeze flips to all Christmas on Halloween night

You forgot to say “All New” 98.7. :rollin

For the regular format, I know that you can’t fare well in the Nielsens with a large playlist, but I’ve always been amazed that they have the same, very small playlist for a long time. Don’t similar formatted stations in the country have larger playlists?

Re: August Numbers

The Breeze is not too mellow. It's the poor song selection with lack of proper talent and imaging. There's a reason this format is in the top 5 in every market it's in, besides us. Their song selections are not garbage like ours is. Most of the playlist is fine, but things like "Rock Witcha" by Bob...

Ask Your Neighbor on WNZK

Did this 60+ year program die after Bob Allison's passing? Yes, it moved as slow as watching paint dry the last many years, but it still had a lot of heritage. I know that Rob Allessee (Bob's son) tried to keep it going for awhile.
