Re: I'm not a big fan of WYCD's new imaging

I don’t care for WOMC’s imaging either. The jingles aren’t very good, IMO. The previous voiceover guy was a bit better than the present one...I believe the new voice has been in place since sometime in 2017. His pronunciation of “O” has always sounded a bit weird to me.

Re: 2020 predictions

1) Towers or Mojo will be enticed by a major market station, and leave. 2) WGPR will change to Classic Soul after about 3-6 months of unraveling their current situation. 3) Bill will get a co-host on WLLZ mornings. 4) More and more non-morning drive shifts will be voice tracked. 5) WJR will drop Guy...

Re: Post mortem of 98.7 The Breeze's unsuccessful Christmas music run

Now that it’s back to the regular format, the library is still way too small, IMO. Also, why they even have voice talent beyond the morning show is beyond me. What does Smokey Rivers add? He opens the mic like 3x and hour, and says (voicetracks) nothing important. I know the days of having someone l...

Are all of the shifts VT’d except for Chadd and Kristi? And are Chadd and Kristi in Detroit, or still in FL?

Re: HD 2 and 3 stations

IHeart doesn’t seem to care much about HD, because their HD2s for both 95.5 and 97.9 have been down for many months, and the HD2 and HD3 for 106.7 is spotty in terms of reception. WNIC “Sunny Radio” isn’t too bad on 100.3 HD2, as well as Smooth Jazz V98.7 on 98.7 HD2. Both HD2s for 94.7 and 104.3 ha...

The Breeze one year later

Any thoughts on 98.7, as it’s has been a year since the demise of AMP?

IMO, it sounded the best last December, when the playlist was probably at its broadest.

Surprise!

I’m surprised that the weather overachieved so much with this storm, as the local folks have been otherwise very accurate the last several weeks with predictions of rain/wind/etc. events, even as much as a week or more ahead of each event. Also - I think this is more of a “Winter Storm Warning” even...

Re: Dave and Chuck the Freak

Morning radio in general is dreadful. Every once in a while I'll give a listen to 96.3, 93.9, 99.5 or 95.5 to see what my former favorite stations are doing with their morning show. If it's not pre recorded actors pretending to be in a relationship dilemma or a snoozefest single jock show or the sa...

Re: The Breeze

I haven’t noticed much of a difference lately. The other day I noticed every 3 songs was a post-2010 song for a few hours, and then the rest of the day just about nothing post-2003. Very odd scheduling. I also notice less and less soft rock and more R&B again though. Sigh. I want to hear England Da...

Re: No rain

Most of the metro area got nothing. I found it funny that the local weather folks were overhyping it, plus some of the electronic freeway boards posted warnings last night.

No rain

I realize that parts of our NE area got slammed with rain last night, but the majority of the Metro Detroit area saw none at all. Epic fail forecast? Most of our local stations predicted 1-2 inches, and maybe 3 for most of us.

HD Radio

It’s amazing to me how poorly anything related to HD Radio is executed. The national HD Radio website is not even accurate as to what the current subchannels are. Locally, at least a few of the subchannels are not even working now (WJLB HD2 and WKQI HD2). Additionally, you have situations where, wit...

Re: Mike Sullivan Gone from 97.1

I never like to see anyone lose their job, so I wish him well. I always wished, after Foster’s departure, that Valenti would get a co-host, as opposed to a ‘yes’ man like Sully.

The Breeze

I am glad to see stronger ratings the last few books, as the playlist gets a little larger. IMO, If you swapped out 3-4 of the more poppier songs each hour with more R&B type material, this would sound a lot like the former Smooth Jazz, don’t you think?
