Re: Ron Cameron In One Word:

Leave Cameron and Cowboy alone. I'm not putting them down when I say they both have entertainment value. I listened to the number one radio guy in Detroit this afternoon, Mike Valenti, and I wasn't entertained.

Re: Channel 4 in the pre-WDIV days

Yes, once, I talked to Clare at the auto show, years after his Milky days. He was doing his magic tricks act. He was wearing a tuxedo, but that voice was unmistakable. A very friendly, talented man.

Re: Andrea Isom, why is she back on my telly?

She's good doing the restaurant beat, etc. Highly watchable. She's no Walter Cronkite, or expected to be.

Re: Fox 2 News: your thoughts?

Fox 2 is no different than any other Fox station/affiliate in the country. Mostly attractive women with great legs. The local Fox stations take programming cues from the parent company's prime attraction, Fox News Channel. It is the formula set up by the late, great Roger Ailes. BTW, last weekend th...

Re: WPAY

I believe its a broker. It's tempting. But that signal and pattern at 1520AM, could easily be a money pit. In my opinion, the repeater has negligible value. You could sell brokered time, possibly. But, the kind of people you would have to deal with are mostly hustlers, plus I hate that kind of radio.

Re: 98.7 The Breeze: Announcers, Jingles, DJ'S, Morning Show, etc. Discussion

I haven't listened to the Breeze, but I have a question. Is this an automated, or voice tracked format that being programmed nationwide? Or, is it a local produced playlist, or something similar? Nope, locally programmed and live talent besides Kayla Morgan in the evening. Edit: Sandy Kovach is pre...

Re: The spring training screw-ups have begun

I was listening to the game about 2:00pm, and it sounded a bit distorted, like the volume was turned up a bit high. Also, they missed the local station ID cue at 2:00 pm. Dead air.

Re: Day and night at WDTW (AM)

I suspect the station is highly automated, and that's the problem. Also, I must mention for being 5kw at 1310AM, their signal really pops. Recently, I was up near Lapeer, and it had great signal. Then, I was down in Toledo and same thing. It always had a decent signal, but with those new sticks, it ...

Re: WPAY

I'm sort of fixated on WPAY these days. I only recently discovered its existence, and found out its for sale. It has one of the oddest signal patterns I've ever seen, yet during the day, I can hear it in the 8 mile Road area of Detroit. Given today's AM station's challenges, I'm amazed its still on ...

I don't know if they have a buyer. I just know it's up for sale. Along with the FM translator and a FM translator CP.
