I think that 95.5 in Petoskey was Dennis messing with Del. I recall a bunch of people we're sort of pissed and another bunch of people were kind of laughing about it.

They got bumped off 95.5 to 95.3 and then to 100.5 when WWSS signed on as I recall.

That's exactly why they now will have a specified complaint procedure, and they can now move to any frequency that will work. And it was just silly how the rules had them leapfrogging and keep relicensing. 'I heard that some leapfrog steps were built on the licensee's bedroom dresser.

It's amazing the hoops the FCC gets stations to hop through. It kind of reminds me of the cruel psychological experiment where a lab rat would have to keep pushing a bar to get a treat. They kept increasing the number required for a treat until the lab rat had to press the bar so many times that it died before it got a treat.


Is THAT where they got the idea for the 486-SX?

I have no idea if Mr. Reynolds still had any sort of equity stake in the Northern Star stations at the time (sounds like he did), but undoubtedly, the owner of KLT was trying to f*ck over the competition.

The Zone + The Bear commanded a higher share of NW Michigan's rock audience than KLT at the time, and The Zone by itself was closing in on KLT in ages 12+, if I remember correctly.

The Zone immediately hemorrhaged share once the interference machine in the Petoskey area took to the airwaves. Made 95.5 pretty unusable in Charlevoix and much of Antrim County, I'm guessing.

I wonder if that was still when Charlie Ferguson was running nbi.

Wasn’t 94.5 simulcasting the zone or was this after it was removed from the simulcast that the translator station started interfering.

Remember listening to 95.5/94.5 the zone back in the early 2000’s. 95.5 was wjzj and 94.5 was wlzj. And at one point 93.9 (WAVC) was even part of the simulcast. Cartman was doing afternoons then and is the only dj from the zone days left.
