Re: WLEW on-air mispoken words

Great topic. As a former professional radio broadcaster, I sure had my share of goofs.

First time I came across INXS was 1984, WOOJ/Fort Myers, Florida. I pronounced it "Inks." Who knew?

Re: West Michigan Top-of-Hour IDs

I may live in West Michigan now, but I was born at Grace Hospital in Detroit (I don't think it exists anymore) and grew up on the west side of the city of Detroit. I know how to pronounce my Detroit names! :hat

Re: West Michigan Top-of-Hour IDs

I am currently listening to the audiobook of "Black Detroit." Being from Detroit, I am really irritated by the narrator pronouncing Gratiot as "Gra-tee-oht" and Dequindre as "Dee cue-in der" or something like it, instead of "Dee kwin dehr." He also botches Hamtramck into two syllables. |I

Re: New Music for Old Folks

59-year-old geezer here. I stopped paying attention to music after leaving radio. So anything after 1998? Except Ariana Grande :horns (Is that a "dirty old man" emoji?)

Re: 98.7 The Breeze (Soft AC) is here!

Doubt we'll hear talent before 2019, but Kevin and Edmonds are no brainers. Delilah tho? NO Delilah would be a trainwreck. For godsakes, keep it local. During my two tours of duty through WFMK, from 7PM to 12M we had "Lights Out" hosted by Jan Russo. Something like that would be amazing, especially...
