Re: RIP 89X

I turned 98.7 back on a little while ago. Hearing some decent gold and after adjusting speaker settings, audio now sounds pretty good. I won't completely write off this station; might be good enough for preset #6 in the car (same one the Breeze occupied before going Xmas music). Same. I’m pleasantl...

98.7 Alternative!

Calling it now: it flips to something else in the next three to six months. If this were a harder-edged alt, which, as Mega said would be probably ‘90s centric, I would listen. As it is now? Absolutely not.

98.7 Alternative!

MW — Unfortunately, I have to agree. I’m underwhelmed by what I’ve heard so far, but I'm (barely) hopeful that they fix it up. Not holding my breath.

Waiting for the announcement of the Woody Show any day now... :barf

98.7 Alternative!

If they're considering Billie Eilish "alternative", then someone made a mistake. She’s been considered that for a while...she even gets spins on triple-A stations as well. MW — I have to agree. As much as I like alt, it ain’t gonna work in Detroit again. Guess they don’t know the definition of insa...

Re: 98.7 Alternative!

Well they're doing one hell of a job promoting it; nothing on their website or social media promoting the change. Wow...

RIP 89X

I think if they were to launch a River-type format, they'd probably do it on 95.1/100.7; no way in hell is Cool-FM doing decently over there.

Shit, maybe someone will blow up a station here to launch it /s

Re: RIP 89X

BFSEsq -- Same. Both stations had extremely fitting songs to end their formats, especially 89x.

Re: RIP 89X

Mega -- 93.9 ran a H*** ass commercial break as well.

Guessing Coldplay's "Clocks" is the final song on 93.9.

EDIT: Final song is Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know"

RIP 89X

Does 580 even bring in any revenue? I mean it’s a computer in a closet, so obviously there’s little operating expense, but they can’t be bringing in much. To whoever had the idea to mimic Absolute Radio — I would listen to a station like that, but I’d probably be in the minority. Sent from my iPhone...
