Does the RIFF play Nada Surf, Popular? Maybe that would just be too cool man!
I would literally shit my pants where I stood if I ever heard that song on 101. I haven't heard it on regular formatted FM radio since 1996.

Re: The Verve, Bittersweet Symphony on WRIF?

It's weird to me, knowing it was something Riff wouldn't touch in 1997. I made mention of it a few years back on my Facebook the first time I heard it. It was a 96.3/93.9 song. But at least WRIF is trying to work in more Alternative/90s/early 00s songs that other supposed Alt-ernative stations don't...

Re: Loss of Limbaugh, Retirement Of Beckman And Others, May Force Changes At WJR

The dream is not over. Just go through the archives and start piecing them together, word by word. Use pitch shift where needed. And you could make new shows forever. The technology is there.

Hang on...

Wasn't Cume-U-Less paying iHate to air the show? Or am I wrong on that? Or maybe it was just air the spots. Either way, this could be a boon for the Cloud.

Re: Detroit annoyance list

I might as well add this to the list even though its not a person: "Bohemian Rhapsody". I dont care what station I'm on (since its everywhere); as soon as I hear those first notes its an automatic station change. Over a one week period in July of 2020, we heard it on the radio 34 damn times in one ...

While I could never stand the asshole, one story does stand out to me (longtime listeners may help with it), but during the 1992 election season, he went on air and claimed he would be voting for Bill Clinton (the reason why escapes me) and he had listeners calling in, some even in tears, BEGGING hi...

Re: WRIF 50 year b-day?

Yep. AOR covered much ground in those days. Then in the 80s it stood for Apartheid Only Radio. CSX used to slip in some Stevie or stuff like that. I find the history of it rather fascinating. When I tell my girlfriend that, yes, WRIF used to play Fleetwood Mac and stuff like that, she doesn't believ...

Re: WRIF 50 year b-day?

Well, 50 years of being locally programmed WRIF. They had been doing a syndicated underground format before, but when the ship was tightened with local personalities and the famous call letters, that's when it all began. 50 years. That's amazing. To have out-lived a slew of other stations, sales, tr...
