Re: Will President Trump shut it down or cave?

I hope he is a two-term president... and that his second term will be a prison term.

Re: Fictional Radio Stations on TV

"K-BLUFF" from the '90s Nickelodeon series "Doug." Doug and Skeeter win Beets (Beatles pastiche) tickets from the station in one episode.

Re: Spanish Station on AM 1030

Another possibility is WWGB Indian Head, MD, which carries Spanish religion as "Radio Poder." If you're hearing the word "Dios" a lot that's probably it.

Re: Holy Winter Tropo Blasters!

Meanwhile, in Whitmore Lake, just 50 miles from Toledo, where WIOT is usually crystal clear, it's being wiped out by WFRN, which was in turn replaced by WKJC. Also last night and this evening, I received: 88.7 WIAA fighting with 89X 89.1 WLKB Bay City K-Love showing RDS in null of local WEMU 89.9 WR...

Re: My 96.3

The "modern hits" era of the Planet was fucking horrible. No thanks!!! Watching paint dry was more interesting than listening to 96.3. Never had a chance to listen to the station when it was a true alternative rock station. Sounds like the station was a lot better in the mid 90's. WDVD is a very su...

Re: Jessica Starr RIP

I'm not a regular Fox 2 news viewer, but it's so awful and tragic to lose a member of the Detroit broadcasting community this way. And during the holiday season to boot. It also hits home for me as someone who has suffered from depression for most of my life. R.I.P. Jessica.

I doubt anything changes. If anything they emphasize their "variety" from the '80s to NOW more. Because we all know 45-year-old women can't get enough Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes...

Re: AM 560 before HoneyRadio

Going even farther back, 560 was WMIC and went on the air about 1956 or so. I haven't been able to find much information on what type of programming WMIC aired, but I believe they aired block programming - some country, some rock & roll, etc. I believe when WMIC became WQTE in 1959 is when they deci...

3rd worst on my list: "Do They Know It's Christmas." There won't be snow in Africa this Christmastime? Thanks for the geography/meteorology lesson, Captain Obvious.
