Magic 105.1

Post by stopnswop2 » Fri Jan 25, 2019 9:56 pm

I just uploaded an aircheck of Magic from 2007, with Mitzi Miles on the air.
This is exactly what an AC station is supposed to sound like :)

Too much slow music. No jingles. Not a fan of the overall sound here.

Mitzi did sound good on this aircheck. That's the one positive I will note.

The music was fine, but the lack of jingles is irritating.

They were a great station, Harper was a gem of a broadcaster, I miss the Brother on the radio. He like myself retired early.

105.1 seemed to slowly go downhill from about 2006 or 2007 onward.

The last year or two on the air as "Today's 105.1" was dreadful. Cannot believe the PD of that mess now programs 96.5 KOIT!

Greater Media in general did a miserable job of managing that station during its last 4 or 5 years as an AC. No consistency. No good post-Harper morning strategy. No wonder the former GM now works in some podunk market in CT. (He also presided over the Detroit Sports 105.1 debacle.)

Agreed!
I did not listen during that time. Was 2012 I think when it rebranded as "Today's".
Was complete trash. All these stupid "Today's AC" and "Fresh AC" are garbage.
How long did it's little Soft Rock 105.1 stunt last? I never listened to it when it was that, however I wish I got a chance to check it out as that's my favorite genre.

I have some airchecks on my computer from earlier dates I believe for the station. (Early 2000s). I'll check later

Do you have any of the weather jingles for 105.1 that went "It's a magic kind of day and the weather is... (cloudy!)"

In regards to Harper, being how right wing he is, I'm surprised WJR hasn't tried to pitch him for like a weekend show he could do remotely
