Is Detroit Radio Boring or What?

Post by Deleted User 14888 » Tue Feb 12, 2019 7:46 pm

Is it me or is Detroit Radio just boring as hell, When I left Detroit in ‘84, Radio in Detroit was Rock’n I mean we had some great stations in ‘84, We had WLTI Lite FM 93.1 , WMJC Magic 95 (94.7), WCZY 95.5, WHYT Power 96, WLLZ 98.7, New Music WABX 99.5, WLBS 102.7, Timeless 105.1 WQRS, WJZZ Jazz 106, W4 Country 106.7 and WGPR 107.5.
Today, I tune in and it just seems like the life of Detroit Radio (or just Radio itself) Has been sucked right out, There’s nothing to really enjoy on radio anymore, And Satellite is getting the same way, So to me Satellite is not the answer, Between my Wife and Myself we’re listening to Oldies 580, Newsradio 950 or a talk show on AM or a bunch of CD’s in the car and at home it’s Albums on the turntable or CD’s or we stream. Are there a lot of you out there that feel the same way.

Oldies 84,Detoit radio is a major snoozefest. Would most people over 30 know most of today's DJs even if they met them at a remote,as opposed to Robin Seymour,Tom Shannon,Gary Stevens, J. Michael Wilson,the late Frank "Swingin' " Sweeney,Dick Purtan,Arthur Penhallow, Sheila Rushlow,Dave Dixon,Jerry Goodwin (whom I met in Nov.1974 when he was working at Windsor's CJOM ) Doug Podell ,Steve Kostan,etc,of yore ?

No its definitely not just you.
It's also not just Detroit.

Corporate radio has become repetitive and stale.
Satellite is the same. It may have 100 channels but it's all repetitive too.

Don’t think it’s on Hulu and we don’t have Amazon.

Is that got Jeff Daniels in it? I was flipping thru Amazon looking for something interesting, and he was in some series that had something to do with broadcasting.

No I don’t think so. This is more of a documentary without actors.
