WQTX Switches to Smooth Jazz as WJZL

| | Comments (2)


The Lansing radio changes continue! Mid-Michigan Radio Group has ended the simulcast of Sports Talk outlets WTQX-FM (92.1) and WQTX-FM (92.7), by flipping the latter to a Smooth Jazz format. The former WQTX (now WJZL) recently received FCC approval to proceed with plans for a COL change to Grand Ledge and frequency change to 92.9, which will provide the station with substantially better coverage of the Lansing market. In the meantime, however, it appears that MMRG has decided to proceed with programming changes for 92.7 FM. WJZL is airing the Smooth Jazz format from Jones Satellite Networks.

Lansing Community College's WLNZ-FM (89.7) currently offers Jazz programming in the daytime. The last commercial Jazz outlet in Lansing was WXMX-FM (now WTXQ), which programmed the format from 1991 to 1993.

WTXQ continues with Sports Talk as "The Ticket".


"Rock the House" Returns to WOES



Locally-produced music program "Rudy and Dolph Rock the House" returns to WOES-FM (91.3), Ovid-Elsie, on October 21st. "Rock the House", which features a mix of Oldies and Classic Rock with emphasis on B-sides and seldom-heard tracks, will air Fridays at 9:00 pm, or immediately following the Ovid-Elsie football broadcast. The program will repeat Saturdays and Sundays at 6:00 pm on Clinton County Radio, and on WITT, Comcast cable channel 12 in the DeWitt area.


Michigan Oldies Podcast is On the Net



Tony Clark and Art Van have announced the debut of the "Michigan Oldies Podcast", a weekly program with the flavor of classic Top 40 radio. Clark and Van, who produce and co-host the two-hour program, feature plenty of Oldies, mixed with classic jingles, commercials, and other elements of Top 40's golden age. Van is host of the "Weekend Oldies Party" on WOAP-AM (1080) in Owosso, and Clark is the owner of Tony Clark Production Services of Rosebush.

The Michigan Oldies Podcast is currently being streamed on two Live 365 internet stations, Cruisin' Oldies Radio and Clinton County Radio.

Cable TV subscribers in the DeWitt area can hear the program on WITT, Comcast cable channel 12.

The podcast will be available for download beginning in January 2006.
