Re: RIP 89X

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

Re: RIP 89X

Not even surprised. Figured they'd end with that.

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"

Haven’t been able to listen, but does anyone know what the promos for tomorrow sound like? Kinda curious...

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...

Re: RIP 89X

armchair pd -- You might be onto something. Seems odd that they'd just drop everything and go "hey, we're changing format!". I'll lose my shit if it turns out that they're simply swapping formats between them...but that won't explain them possibly blowing up 580 along with it. Mega -- Time Warp 24/7...

Re: RIP 89X

Right in the childhood, man. Well, alternative rock fell out in the early to mid 00s. Then they tried doing butt rock, but WRIF has butt rock on lock. Alternative rock isn't even rock anymore, it's what MW calls "snowflake music". Current rock sucks, so this isn't a total surprise. Whoever said D&C...

Re: RIP 89X

Whoa. They're blowing everything up on Ouellette Ave, aren't they?

580's social media accounts are still up, but haven't been updated since yesterday. Not sure if that means anything or not...

Re: RIP 89X

I think those are banned -- a station near Niagra Falls (I think?) got nailed for attempting it.

Re: RIP 89X

MW -- it's probably the same guy/girl imaging combo they've had for the last 5-10 years. Fits 93.9 perfectly, so I'm not expecting a wholesale change there.

Re: RIP 89X

My thoughts: 88.7 goes Virgin Radio 93.9 reverts back to AAA but with a classic rock/alt focus and different branding (mentioned this idea in the "Predictions" thread) or becomes "Bob" syntheticexctasy -- if you're referring to the influx of pop product into the playlist, that's why I stopped listen...

Re: RIP 89X

Holy shit. Color me surprised.

I figured they’d blow up 89x at some point, but the River is what I’m surprised about. Doesn’t it do decently over in Windsor? Kinda odd to flip that as well.

Re: WLNS Tweet and Lansing Facts

From what I gathered, it was taken from a Tim Skubick article about the state hanging up a portrait of Snyder in the capitol; that line was removed from the article and the tweet containing it was deleted. MasterB -- Skubick probably got his ass reamed for it, don't worry. He's been doing this for d...
