Re: How to program Wheels 106.7 by the hour

1. People want to hear the hits, and hear familiar voices play the hits. Studies have proven that time and time again. 2. No format has been tested to death moreso than AOR and the formats that followed it, including this iteration of classic rock. That's been going on since the 1970s, not 1996. 3....

Re: How Wheels 106.7 programs by the hour

My only request is that they play an AC/DC song at 4:45 every weekday afternoon. That pounding beat at high volume always helps me forget the work day.

Re: Mike Valenti and Juwan Howard

I'm neither a U of M fan or hater. The hire seems like a reach. Its like the Tigers handing the keys to inexperienced Brad Ausmus. That's a good comparison. In the days leading up to the hire, there were many articles about different Fab Five players endorsing Howard, which was no big surprise, but...

Mike Valenti and Juwan Howard

Last week I actually spent some time listening to Mike Valenti and enjoying it. He seemed to be the only sports person in town who wasn't bending over backwards to rationalize the hiring of Juwan Howard to be the next basketball coach at the University of Michigan. He was quite critical of it, and e...

Re: Ron Cameron In One Word:

...the recycling of addled octogenarians/nonagerians... That's pretty harsh. :) I find them very interesting, with a lot historical value. Maybe because I just turned 60. It's especially nice to hear how they made lives for themselves after their playing days, when they didn't make the kind of mone...

Elton John Countdown

On the way home from work, I listened to a WNIC/IHeart countdown of Elton John songs in anticipation of the new Elton John movie coming out tomorrow. It was great radio because Elton John himself was talking between the songs about the history of the songs and how they fit into his career. He talked...

Re: Overplayed Classic Rock Songs

While these songs are burnt to a crisp, and it's a great idea to play deeper album cuts, it'll never happen, and I'll tell you why. To the average listener, these are recognizable songs. They want songs they know. No PD or MD worth his/her weight in you-know-what is going to program a bunch of B-si...

Re: Bernie the Blooper Boy :Perhaps SIX decades at WDIV .

Sadly, another sportscaster who was known for his personality died recently in a tragic accident—Chet Coppock. I remember him in Indianapolis in the 1970s.

Re: Bernie the Blooper Boy :Perhaps SIX decades at WDIV .

According to this bio, he's been at WDIV since 1986: http://www.berniesmilovitz.com/about I think he's become the sports version of Sonny Eliot. Something that's overly familiar, but something that is never going to change and connects people to the past. Kind of like an eccentric old uncle. When he...

It's a shame he didn't make it to the 50th anniversary of the Paul is Dead controversy that he helped fuel.

Great song, Winwood is Great, He was with The Spencer Davis Group, Blind Faith, and Traffic in the early days of Classic Rock, You should check it out on YouTube. Quality music. Recently listened to the "Low Spark of High Heeled Boys" album again. Great stuff, and I remember my local FM rock statio...

Re: JIM PRICE STINKS!!!

In fact, I have seen Brandon Inge and Nate Robertson on Fox TV, and they both appear to be capable. Perhaps they could be considered as possible replacements for Price (or Gibson if his illness ever becomes an issue for him). Those two have had a lot of practice. When they played, they were obvious...

Re: Why So Much 80’s?

when do we get a 70s obsession? There was a 60's obsession in the 90s, then 80s in the 2000s, and 2010s.. What is wrong with the 70s???? One thing that hurt 70s nostalgia was the rise of music videos in the 1980s. That pushed the new music so far to the front that 70s nostalgia never had a chance t...
