Re: Why bother with a broadcast anymore?

The weather teases usually reference whenever the next weather worth warning about might show up, rather than the better weather that might be occurring now. If they’re about having something to warn to justify their slogan, then they’re just “the tv station that cried wolf”, and not many will be pa...

Re: CHYR Radio 7 Canada

WPAG-AM in Ann Arbor had a jingle, I assume was from the 1960’s, mentioning the WPAG “Weather-ometer”.

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

Considering it was their own thread that went off topic, I guess the arguing is their preferred method of dialogue. If the subject is how tv “professionals” should be above responding to criticism of how their station’s programming is prioritized, then shouldn’t said critic be above the criticism (g...

Re: WKMF Call Letters Return To Flint

I realize it’s meant more as a metaphor than anything else, but Brassow Rd certainly hasn’t been gravel in decades, and even Maple Rd, at the east end of Brassow, got paved years ago. I like the speculation as to the call letter changes. It’s always a good idea to retain heritage calls in case they’...

Re: Unique Radio Experiences

I also caught WWL out of NO after Hurricane Katrina. It was after 4am, and they were still on the air. They were taking calls from whomever was out there, discussing what that person was seeing or experiencing, and answering questions as to what to do and where to go for assistance. It was reminisce...

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

People complain about posts not being on topic, yet in the past two weeks in this thread, there’s been no new thoughts on the subject. Just more of the arguments. To attempt a reversal of that trend - viewers will usually complain when they lose the ability to watch what they want to: as the Queen s...

Re: Anyone else have DirecTV?

Continual dialogue that isn’t about the topic as much as about how some people vehemently disagree with another person. For the record, the Hotrod Harris comment was sarcastic, but based upon the topic at hand. After that, it’s just becoming an uninteresting bunch of noise. Just my opinion. I hope t...

Re: Overplayed Classic Rock Songs

I forget who's playing what, but some of the earlier Top does sneak out on occasion. Sirius/XM has them show up on the Classic Vinyl and Classic Rewind channels, and on Deep Tracks occasionally. I recall when Eliminator came out that our college station didn't jump on the hits, but gravitated to dee...

Re: Overplayed Classic Rock Songs

"Carry On Wayward Son" . I saw Kansas in concert years ago, and I swear they played other songs I knew as well. It couldn't have been just that one song in different tempos. Most ZZ Top songs played from "Eliminator". I love the band and have their albums even up to the present day ("I Gotsta Get Pa...

Re: Lost Classic Rock Songs - Detroit version

"Megaforce" - yeah, I remember it coming out and not getting enough notice. "Autobahn" - way ahead of its' time, and it's amazing that it was a hit single in edited form. There's a couple week period around '74 or '75 when the Billboard Top 40 featured such a variety that I was blown away by the rea...

Re: Lost Classic Rock Songs - Detroit version

"Muscle Of Love" - Alice Cooper (just gave this whole album a relisten, and it's better than I remembered) That one fights with "Love it to Death" as my favorite ACG album (From the Inside takes the #1 spot overall). Big Apple Dreamin', Never Been Sold Before, the title cut, Working Up a Sweat...gr...

Did not know that "Contact" sampled this song, thanks for that bit of trivia! You're welcome. Music discovery is fun for me, so I'm glad to share. Mike, the Spotify Playlist is looking good. My liked songs playlist on there has over 3,600 songs, so It's well-stocked. I could do a thread on pop song...

Re: Lost Classic Rock Songs - Detroit version

I had thought of "Tightrope" earlier today...good call! I also like Doucette's song - how about Kim Mitchell's "Lager And Ale", the underplayed "Fits Ya Good" by Bryan Adams, mentioned in the WLLZ thread, "All Over Town" by April Wine, and "Feel It Again" by Honeymoon Suite? I used to catch Good Roc...
