Re: "Lucky 8" On WCBY-1960s To Early 1970s

I remember the station trailer era. Ours was a rather low-budget deal, and the trailer had seen better decades. I don't recall the local crowds being too impressed that we were live, but this was after the station's heyday, and I was just glad to be there. The music was handled back at the station, ...

Re: CK 105.5

Since WNEM seemed to do the radio-schtick with more than one station, I'll assume it had less to do with whether Mike and Stephanie were a good fit for their format, and more to do with their having the jobs at that particular station. Besides, I doubt WNEM has much ground to stand on to determine w...

Re: SCREW YOU! I’M KEEPING YOU SAFE!!!

Well, if you're getting that I think Meteorologists are underpaid from what I wrote, I guess you think the rest of it is based in reality as well. I'll tell the gang you send your regrets, and that you can't make the Emerald City All-Class Reunion this year. Not that it's the topic at hand, but I do...

Re: SCREW YOU! I’M KEEPING YOU SAFE!!!

Either ride out the storm in the cellar with Auntie Em, Uncle Henry, Hunk, Zeke and Hickory, or take the Dorothy Gale route: complain about the TV coverage to Professor Marvel, rescue Toto from a local dog-napping gang of underpaid Meterologists led by Miss Gulch, and pray for a cell signal in your ...

Re: CK 105.5

No surprise that no media outlets in Flint and the Tri-Cities reported anything I can find on Mike and Stephanie's exit. I hadn't noticed because I don't listen to CK anyway. Was WNEM still doing morning show cut-ins with them? Say what you will about whether Mike MacDonald was appropriate for the f...

Re: John Candy, 25 years later

Even his role in Canadian Bacon made the movie worth watching. (That, and Alan Alda's classic line)

Re: Drummer Hal Blaine dies

Check out "The Wrecking Crew" movie on DVD. It was hours of footage and interviews, both in the film and as extras. Hal's interviewed in there, as well as many others in the Crew. It was fascinating, and I learned a lot about their work. I'm hoping to get the Muscle Shoals documentary next.

Re: SCREW YOU! I’M KEEPING YOU SAFE!!!

Per the topic, are the stations obligated to acknowledge those who don't appreciate the interruption of their "regularly scheduled programming "? I'd rather be over-informed and have someone interested in the common good. Just inform the public professionally. Don't feel the need to respond to the d...

Re: Reality And Dreams On A Fluffy Cumulus Cloud

The old WPAG site was on the south side of I-94 near the Ann Arbor-Saline Rd exit. It wasn't far from where the Meijer was built. That is near Briarwood, but the Ann Arborians would probably split hairs on that. I'm imagining WPAG at 50k, and some of the formats they had might have not sounded so av...

Re: Matt Shepard as the new Tiger play-by-play TV voice..

I worked with Matt briefly in college radio. His enthusiasm stood out to me then, and I've enjoyed his work of late, including the sub work on the Tigers broadcasts. I'm looking forward to his broadcasts this season, even with the prospect of another year of the great rebuild. Congratulations are in...

Re: Misheard Song Lyrics

"I'd Really Love To See You Tonight" was the subject of callers to WJR back when the song was popular, and the consensus then was "I'm not talkin' 'bout millennium". It makes some sense, but not very much. "Bad Blood" got some questions on WJR as well, but the dj in question got past the line "the b...

Death Cab For Cutie took its' name, btw, from a Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band song.
