I'm not a big fan of WYCD's new imaging

Sorry, but I'm not a fan of WYCD's new imaging.

The voiceovers (done by the same guy used by 96.7 in Windsor and 97.5 in Lansing, and ironically, the short-lived disaster known as 94.3 The Bone) sound muddy & cheap. It's not that the V/O artist is a poor choice for country radio...his stuff on Country 102.5 in Boston sounds great. It's just that the recording quality sounds poor.

I guess I'm OK with the station shortening its moniker to "99-5 YCD."

Jingle use seems to have been scaled back, too. For example, a jingle no longer accompanies the TOH ID. Hopefully they don't toss jingles out the window completely as WDRQ and WDVD have recently done. I hate it when non-Rock music stations don't use jingles!!!

I haven't cared for YCD's or WOMC's imaging for awhile now. I assume same person produces both stations. I always found it way overproduced. Just a personal preference I guess.

WDVD still occasionally uses jingles. I wish they'd use them more as well, it's a good jingle package.

I don’t care for WOMC’s imaging either. The jingles aren’t very good, IMO. The previous voiceover guy was a bit better than the present one...I believe the new voice has been in place since sometime in 2017. His pronunciation of “O” has always sounded a bit weird to me.

When did YCD drop Brian Lee as their imaging voice?

I know it will never happen because he's "too country" but I wish WYCD would bring back John Willyard for voice overs. I also wish WOMC would use Randy Reeves again while we're on the subject. WYCD and WOMC never sounded better as a station than when Willyard and Reeves were doing the voice work on the respective stations.Both of those things will never happen though.

Within the past week.
