Notice to all Buzzboard readers & posters: A requested server migration took place Saturday evening. Unfortunately, I did not re-point my DNS records to the new server until roughly 7:45p ET on Monday, November 12. As a result, any posts and new user registrations occurring between the nighttime hours of 11/10 and approximately 7:45p ET on Monday, 11/12 have been lost.

This was unavoidable, and the longer I waited to re-point to the new server, the greater the number of posts that would've been lost.

Please feel free to resubmit any threads / posts you created. They will NOT be lost this time! Many thanks for your patience these past couple of weeks while I've worked to migrate the Buzzboard to a more secure, more robust platform.

Re: Z96.5 in K'zoo is now 96.5 Jack FM!

I'm just surprised they actually paid to switch it to "Jack"...and didn't come up with some workaround...I'm looking right at you "Mike" and "Joe" in Lansing and Saginaw...Duke-FM Is obviously taken, but maybe "Steve" or "Jeff" FM could have worked...

Re: WXMI may be put up for sale

"The removal of all Bulls games and all Cubs games is what really doomed the network and made the "WGN" brand lose all meaning to its viewers." Agreed. OUTSIDE of Chicago. There's a reason they dumped the Chicago programming altogether. It didnt make enough money. And ultimately outside of the Chica...

When you see the "best ...
