iFart HD radio changes in Detroit

Post by MWmetalhead » Wed Jul 03, 2019 5:31 pm

Today, 92.3 HD2 dumped Air1 and switched to a classic hip-hop and R&B format. OK, fine.

Here's the one I don't understand - 106.7 HD2 dumped 90's rock in favor of a ghetto hip-hop format that more or less sounds like a rougher version of the music WJLB plays. This fucking sucks, as Smells Like the 90's was the only HD2 channel I listen to regularly.

Speaking of 106.7, Big Wheels is as lame as ever. Same shitty songs day after day. Why does Doug Podell have such an obsession with the band Tesla? I'm hard pressed to think of a band that screams "low wage white trash" more than that one!


Memo to WGRD: You need to sound a LOT more like your phenomenal sister station in Davenport, IA.

Oh I could think of a few. Ever hear of this band called Poison?

Poison and Great White rank up there, but Tesla is the worst of the bunch.

If those three bands ever tour together, Warrant wants to join the party.

I’d take Tesla over Poison, but both are terrible.

Hey hey now! Tesla is a legit band. The members can actually play their instruments, they write their own songs and they've sold over 14 million albums. They never got into the hair or glam metal scenes. They just played. Like them or not, its not even close to fair to lump them in with hacks like Poison, Warrant etc.

Why are we blaming Doug for the WLLZ playlist when Casey is the PD and corporate makes them use a premium choice playlist?

Musically, i think Tesla is far better than most "hair rock" acts. They are better songsmiths and more mature. I find Poison to be very boring and more about an image. Tesla seemed to put a little more thought into the songs as a whole.
