Re: WXLA 1170

WXLA is probably one of a very few stations that gives its' power in its' ID: "10,000 watt 1180, WXLA".

Re: Storm Armageddon?...Not according to the voice trackers.

I saw that same thing happen probably 15 years ago, which shows that it's never been much of a priority. There was a tornado warning out, according to the EAS cutting in eventually, the sirens were going off, and it obviously looked bad out, but a nearby station was VT, as it was a weekend, and you'...

Re: Truly Underrated Songs By Brian Hyland, Gary Lewis, With Leon Russell On Bells And Keyboards

I thought that album sounded familiar, and after going through the unfiled portion of the collection, I did see that same Gary Lewis "Legendary Masters" title that I picked up in the past couple of years. I'll leave it out to give another listen to soon. I'm also looking to get Gary's "I'm On The Ri...

Re: How Many Members in WZZM’s Weather Club?

I think that, with everything else that's going on in the world, that it's comforting to see George still at 13, and also Bill over at 8. I hope they stay around as long as they care to.

Re: Truly Underrated Songs By Brian Hyland, Gary Lewis, With Leon Russell On Bells And Keyboards

"The Joker Went Wild" is a great song. That and (likely all) the others you cited are in rotation on Real Oldies 1480, WGVU-AM in GR. It's a good station to stream for a wide variety of hits, big and small. They claim their library is over 9,000 songs. That, and it's public radio, so aside from prom...

Re: Palace explodes

...as opposed to the next-to-nothing Palace, which, in almost 30 years in business, generated virtually no momentum in development around it. The landfill next door was pretty indicative of the interest in that area - drive in and drive out. Every effort went into the retail in and around Great Lake...

I think he took precautions, the same precautions barbers are taking today. From an MLive article on May 6: "The shop’s chairs, doorknobs and bathrooms are sanitized, he says.

Re: Owosso barber

The state dropped the case today. He won. He hasn't won all of it yet. The court hearing was postponed until September. His attorney wants a jury trial, it looks like. Another chance to have a press conference and hear from the patriot himself: http://roa.shiawassee.net/roawebinq/ROACase.aspx?CRTNO...

Re: Ennio Morricone, dies at 91

I'm looking forward to getting more into Morricone's music - I have the soundtrack to "The Hateful Eight", but that's about it so far. I was prepared to find fault with Conniff's version of that song, but they did all right with it. Ray was also a professional, and wouldn't take on the song unless h...

Re: Charlie Daniels

Charlie also played on Ringo Starr's second solo album, "Beaucoups of Blues", recorded over three days in June of 1970 in Nashville. The Beatles Channel on Sirius/XM played a few tracks from that album this week in conjunction with Daniels' passing and Ringo's 80th birthday.

Re: Bill Harris, Broadcasting Hall of Fame inductee

Who said anything about matrimony? "Acrimony". Perhaps you equate the two, but they aren't inherently the same. Lasciviousness is close to what I said, so I'll let that misquote go. Otherwise, your answer speaks for itself - it's about what I expected. In short: "Why should I?" In any event, the sub...

If they think the Hall of Fame is a worthy achievement, then that's worth more than your supposed outsider opinion. Everyone here already knows you don't care for Mr. Harris, and why that is. I'm sure it's not bothering him much that you've continued restating your objections. As to your achievement...
