Re: Alan Almond passes

I agree. I admit that having Alan's playlist include songs like "Songbird" cultivated my love for Jazz in a way that i hadn't heard before. My musical tastes range from the left of the dial to the right.....and everything in-between. Beastie Boys....to Kenny G.... to Beatles.... to....whatever. The ...

Re: FSD Tigers crowd ambient sound

Indeed I am, NS8401. Cannot stand that cheesy tune. I second that commentary. It was "cute" then.....but not now. "Bless You Boys" is more fitting...... but even that is dated to 1984. The ambient noise wouldn't surprise me any. It's Laugh-tracks that makes some of the best-known Sit-Com TV shows a...

Re: Changing the Channel to 2

Know what, NS8401? you are correct and i edited my post to match the correction.

There was "Fox50 News at 10" which then turned into "UPN50 News at 10" when the affiliate change happened in the mid-1990s.

I stand (or sit right at the moment) corrected and thanks for reminding me of that. :)

Re: Alan Almond passes

I found a few bits on YouTube..... but not sure on the whole shows. Hard to say whether those were kept or not unless someone did the "home recording" of them like many of us did back then ;)

Re: Diana Lewis

I saw her on a PSA (I believe) spot last night and wasn't sure until i saw her face on the TV.

It looks like she's well (looks, of course) which is good versus the statement of "oh, she looks like hell"....which she doesn't. :)

Re: Florida Ain't Got NOTHING On THIS!

Bizarre.... very bizarre. Almost as good as the guy coming out of the Gas Station, lighting up the cigarette he had in his hand, and walking back to his car. When i asked him politely to put it out (i was filling my tank at that time) he said "well, you know thats what OUR people do---BLOW UP THINGS...

Re: Changing the Channel to 2

Depending on the time.... depends on the news i watch. Don't care for 7 much anymore.... Diana Lewis and Jac LeGoff supporting The King Billy.... those days are gone. 2 is more "home-grown" to me since "Fox2News" was birth'd in the mid-1990s when the WJBK affiliate went to Fox from CBS. (Yes, Birth'...

I kinda wondered the same thing.... as well as maybe making a trek to the funeral home.

But..... dunno. ;)

Re: Alan Almond passes

Not sure how i missed this yesterday... but okay. From about 1979-1980 i started listening to Alan's show and try to fall asleep to it. I knew that once i heard Kool & The Gang's "Summer Madness", it was time to really try to button down and go to sleep. I was sad to hear that he was off the air.......

Re: Radio Disney gone from AM 910; station is off the air

Was there any reason given for RD not being on an FM-stick?

Wouldn't they have done better ratings-wise if it had been a better quality sound than "just to have one in the market"?

WOMC is getting to be a worn-out preset on my car-radio for a reason.

Re: 96.3 WDVD has suddenly gone conservative with its music

I've noticed..... even without seeing the commentary here. Nothing wrong with the playlist.... unless it's going to do a massive flip to something awful. Absolutely despise that 93.1 is no longer Doug.... and 105.1 is "sports".... which we didn't need a second "97.1" sports station. Oh well.... will...
