Re: WDRQ must be making WYCD sweat

Who would have thought a year ago that 93.1 would be the station that would be live and local (almost) all day and 99.5 would be the one with canned content and voice tracking? DJ's and strong talent were the cornerstone of WYCD since its inception as Young Country 99.5 back in 1993. Oh well, corpo...

Re: WDRQ must be making WYCD sweat

Wonder if the new music is part of the country chart trends right now?

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

I'm guessing the election might be helping WJR's ratings.

Re: WDRQ must be making WYCD sweat

What has changed about 99.5's playlist?

Re: BIG 101.3 FM — Fun Hits You Know

Cousin Brucie's show is indeed just on WABC and not in syndication.

Seems like 107.3 plays more commercials and less music.

Re: BIG 101.3 FM — Fun Hits You Know

Interesting change for sure. I wonder how much impact this will have on 'FGR?

MW, how long were the commercial breaks on Thunder?

Re: WDRQ must be making WYCD sweat

Cody Allan's show is also a holdover to the previous new country-based format. They also run NASCAR races from MRN and PRN radio during the season. I bet Bobby and Cody's shows both leave when the contracts of both are up. Cody's show used to air on K100 until Nash Nights Live (now Nights with Elain...

Re: Worst-sounding radio stations of all-time.

Star 105.7 in Grand Rapids speeds up its music. If you thought Madonna circa 1984-85 (when her voice was artificially sped up on her recordings to start with) already sounded like Minnie Mouse, on Star she sounds like Minnie Mouse on helium. I guess the purpose is to make WLHT sound "draggy" by com...

Re: Who was let go?

I'm glad they added full RDS to 93.5. Now 94.5 needs full RDS again. Johny started at K100 when they fired Amy Davis last December. He pretty much started the day they fired her. It looks like he's also permanently the night host on 93.5, replacing Bill Stewart. He used to be on 105.5 until they mov...

Re: WDRQ must be making WYCD sweat

WYCD is becoming more and more unlistenable. Their jingles are horrendous - they belong on a CHR station. But maybe they fit since very little of the music they play is country. DRQ is only slightly better musically, but they do appear to be more proactive in playing female artists, which is good w...

Re: Eddie Van Halen dies

I will definitely agree that Eddie was one of the best guitarists ever to play. May he R.I.P.

In Toledo, WXKR played all Van Halen during the 5 PM hour on Tuesday. Not sure if WIOT did anything or not.

Re: September radio ratings

Yeah, I think the Bounce is in some trouble. The classic hip-hop balloon in Detroit deflated more slowly than many other cities, but the general trend is once such stations begin a multi-survey decline, they seldom recover. The good news? It appears many of the people who are listening to 105.1 les...

Re: Sucking up to Megyn Kelly

I honestly think the show wasn't going to last that long. I agree that the ratings were bad and NBC was just looking for an excuse to fire her because of that.
