Notice to all Buzzboard readers & posters: A requested server migration took place Saturday evening. Unfortunately, I did not re-point my DNS records to the new server until roughly 7:45p ET on Monday, November 12. As a result, any posts and new user registrations occurring between the nighttime hours of 11/10 and approximately 7:45p ET on Monday, 11/12 have been lost.

This was unavoidable, and the longer I waited to re-point to the new server, the greater the number of posts that would've been lost.

Please feel free to resubmit any threads / posts you created. They will NOT be lost this time! Many thanks for your patience these past couple of weeks while I've worked to migrate the Buzzboard to a more secure, more robust platform.

105.1 has flipped - now stunting with Oldies

Post by BFSEsq » Thu Jun 30, 2016 11:02 pm

I had the urge to come to the Buzzboard once I read about this. Haha. Oh, Detroit Sports 105.1, it's honestly amazing you even lasted as long as you did.

Two thoughts:

1) Stunting really sucks hard nowadays. Remember when stunting was so creative? They're running an HD-2 feed. Good lord.

2) This is Greater Media, who have basically had no clue what to do with this station for years before the flip to sports. I would imagine the new format will be boring, uninspired, and just about completely automated. Zero budget. The return of Today's 105.1: We're Not Quite Sure What We Play Either[TM]?

I listened online today and I actually like this oldies playlist better than WOMC, believe it or not.

I'll bet it's actual oldies. Unfortunately, that doesn't fly on radio anymore. So it ultimately won't be that. But I guess you can listen to WCSX-HD2 anytime (it's just a simulcast of that.)

I think GM thought they could photo copy what they had in Philly and do it in Detroit. Except they did it so half assed, hell keeping Jim Harper and those 2 ladys with him probably could gave done better with sports then a couple of those guys I heard on there and honestly talking sports is like me trying to speak Russian.

Could the new station's name be Bounce?

I like the fabric softener, too! (Could Procter & Gamble issue a C&D?)

Wonder if those dudes finally realize the constant "legend in their own mind" babble format just didn't work....but some kept repeating over-&-over. :x

BTW: Oldies are working fine - no babbling..... :D

^^^^^^ THIS.

GM has a record of doing lousy launches. What appears obvious in this one is they are unprepared. The current playlist is boring as hell and while some may love oldies, they only bring upper demos and very little in the way of sales.

How did Detroit Sports 105.1 fail in less than 3 years?

I listened for about a half hour. Not bad...not great. Are they not going to play any 80's hip hop? I would like if they threw in some dance classics and maybe some of the old school stuff 96.3 use to play. I didn't listen too long..but seemed kind of weak to me. I think it could be a great station if done right.
