I'm not touching the Wheelz format. I don't think enough people remember wheels from 30 years ago unless they do a classic format. But I just don't see it happening. I wish they'd done the Alt format before 106.7! I'd love to have rock on 98.7 again!!!
Boy, oh boy...be careful what you wish for 😒

Re: Rest Stop / Gymnastics Coach

Am I the only one wondering why charges weren't brought against this man sooner? Otherwise, I concur with Matt. The parents of these girls should be ashamed of themselves, for not seeing what was really going on here, and the fact that in many cases, their own daughters were afraid to tell them. A ...

Re: January Radio Ratings

It is nice to look down at the radio and see "98.7" while hearing stuff like Nirvana or Pearl Jam or Offspring of Green Day again, though. It's like Today's Wheels last year or so on the air. It's the other 45 minutes of programming that piss me off. Have you seen some of their Facebook/Twitter comm...

Re: January Radio Ratings

I’m sure this is exactly what all the displaced 89x listeners were looking for..... *raises hand* I prayed to the radio Gods for 89x to bite the dust so I could get a REAL alternative station, one that played 95.5 and 96.3 music with "Closing Time, thrown in for good measure. I am SO happy that the...

Re: January Radio Ratings

Entercom's other Alternative stations aren't doing so hot either: - WQMP in Orlando is barely ahead of WPCV, a Lakeland-based country station that doesn't advertise much if at all in the Orlando area despite almost all of Orange County being within WPCV's 60dBu coverage area - KVIL in Dallas/Fort W...

Re: January Radio Ratings

I got an idea! How about a sports station that talks politics all day and then only has Iraqi soccer matches on weekends?

Or an oldies station that only plays Buddhist Monk chants? For fuck's sake.

Re: January Radio Ratings

I want some of the cocaine used by the folks that thought this was a good idea. Morning shows all day, 3, 4 voices going at once. 2, 3 thoughts per break. Music that has historically failed in Detroit. Literally cutting off songs and breaks to hit commercials. 2 minutes of commercials every 3rd song...

Does the RIFF play Nada Surf, Popular? Maybe that would just be too cool man!
I would literally shit my pants where I stood if I ever heard that song on 101. I haven't heard it on regular formatted FM radio since 1996.

Re: The Verve, Bittersweet Symphony on WRIF?

It's weird to me, knowing it was something Riff wouldn't touch in 1997. I made mention of it a few years back on my Facebook the first time I heard it. It was a 96.3/93.9 song. But at least WRIF is trying to work in more Alternative/90s/early 00s songs that other supposed Alt-ernative stations don't...

Re: Loss of Limbaugh, Retirement Of Beckman And Others, May Force Changes At WJR

The dream is not over. Just go through the archives and start piecing them together, word by word. Use pitch shift where needed. And you could make new shows forever. The technology is there.

Hang on...

Wasn't Cume-U-Less paying iHate to air the show? Or am I wrong on that? Or maybe it was just air the spots. Either way, this could be a boon for the Cloud.

Re: Detroit annoyance list

I might as well add this to the list even though its not a person: "Bohemian Rhapsody". I dont care what station I'm on (since its everywhere); as soon as I hear those first notes its an automatic station change. Over a one week period in July of 2020, we heard it on the radio 34 damn times in one ...
