Re: WLLZ Deep Cut Saturday

I'd also suggest "Hang On For Your Life" and "Hollywood" from Shooting Star's second album. Some other lost artists that might be considered include Point Blank, Aldo Nova, Spys, The Tarney-Spencer Band, The Sherbs, and even Michael Bolton's "Fools Game", before he dropped rock altogether. I also re...

Re: WOMC adding 90s music

That can't be good for the part-time staff if their own station prefers not to mention they work there. Not that morale is a pressing concern in the corporate radio world, but it's been clear for years that the personalities are secondary to the revenue. They might even be behind the cleaning staff,...

Re: Drummer Hal Blaine dies

Thanks. I'll add Sound City to the list to check out. I've seen the CD, and hadn't connected that to a actual film, although I'm not sure why.

I think I might have the Funk Brothers movie somewhere, but I haven't organized the collection lately to know what's around. I know I've watched it.

Re: WOMC adding 90s music

Yeah, knowing Steve Kostan's style from over the years, he'd come off a bit too laid back for the format. The station lists no announcers for weekends - is it tracked, or do they have announcers they prefer not to promote? I don't listen to them, but that can be said for a number of stations now and...

Re: WOMC adding 90s music

Are they trying to be retroactively hip by using the 80's implied meaning of "totally", which was part of Val-speak? Frank Zappa's one actual hit came in 1982, "Valley Girl", featuring his daughter Moon Unit's take on that lingo. I agree with the dictionary definition of the word meaning "completely...

Re: "Lucky 8" On WCBY-1960s To Early 1970s

I remember the station trailer era. Ours was a rather low-budget deal, and the trailer had seen better decades. I don't recall the local crowds being too impressed that we were live, but this was after the station's heyday, and I was just glad to be there. The music was handled back at the station, ...

Re: CK 105.5

Since WNEM seemed to do the radio-schtick with more than one station, I'll assume it had less to do with whether Mike and Stephanie were a good fit for their format, and more to do with their having the jobs at that particular station. Besides, I doubt WNEM has much ground to stand on to determine w...

Re: SCREW YOU! I’M KEEPING YOU SAFE!!!

Well, if you're getting that I think Meteorologists are underpaid from what I wrote, I guess you think the rest of it is based in reality as well. I'll tell the gang you send your regrets, and that you can't make the Emerald City All-Class Reunion this year. Not that it's the topic at hand, but I do...

Either ride out the storm in the cellar with Auntie Em, Uncle Henry, Hunk, Zeke and Hickory, or take the Dorothy Gale route: complain about the TV coverage to Professor Marvel, rescue Toto from a local dog-napping gang of underpaid Meterologists led by Miss Gulch, and pray for a cell signal in your ...

Re: CK 105.5

No surprise that no media outlets in Flint and the Tri-Cities reported anything I can find on Mike and Stephanie's exit. I hadn't noticed because I don't listen to CK anyway. Was WNEM still doing morning show cut-ins with them? Say what you will about whether Mike MacDonald was appropriate for the f...

Re: John Candy, 25 years later

Even his role in Canadian Bacon made the movie worth watching. (That, and Alan Alda's classic line)

Re: Drummer Hal Blaine dies

Check out "The Wrecking Crew" movie on DVD. It was hours of footage and interviews, both in the film and as extras. Hal's interviewed in there, as well as many others in the Crew. It was fascinating, and I learned a lot about their work. I'm hoping to get the Muscle Shoals documentary next.

Re: SCREW YOU! I’M KEEPING YOU SAFE!!!

Per the topic, are the stations obligated to acknowledge those who don't appreciate the interruption of their "regularly scheduled programming "? I'd rather be over-informed and have someone interested in the common good. Just inform the public professionally. Don't feel the need to respond to the d...
