Metro Detroit: Newsmakers Dec 7, 2007




Detroit Free Press:

WXYT-AM/FM (1270/97.1) morning hosts Jeff Deminski and Bill Doyle's final live broadcast at the station may have come today. Then again, it may all be a negotiations ploy.

The duo's attorney, Mike Novak , said station GM Kevin Murphy informed them after their show ended at 10 a.m. today that they will not be on the air live next week. But Murphy said "D&D will be in 'best of ' (repeats) next week and we will all be working hard to put an agreement together before they go on vacation." The pair, here since late summer 1999, have the last two weeks of 2007 scheduled as vacation time and their contract expires Dec. 31. They had hoped to work until Dec. 14...

JJ & Lynne to broadcast live from Led Zeppelin reunion concert in London

Classic Rock WCSX FM 94.7 Morning Hosts JJ & Lynne will broadcast live from London Monday & Tuesday morning (12/10 & 12/11) from 6-9am (Detroit time) to capture the feeling surrounding Led Zeppelin’s Reunion Concert back to the Motor City.

The station's web site, will provide frequent updates, live interviews, photos, videos, their blog and podcasts from London. JJ and Lynne have set their sights on Ann Wilson (Heart), Mick Jones (Foreigner) and Paul Rodgers (Free, Bad Company, The Firm with Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page & Queen).

To prepare for these special transatlantic live shows, they’ll also take in London’s Classic Rock hot spots, including a private tour of Abbey Road Studios and in true JJ & Lynne style, they’ll attempt to schmooze their way into the Led Zeppelin pre-show sound check to give ‘CSX listeners a sneak preview of the biggest Classic Rock music event of the new millennium.

They’ll call with reports from the show Monday afternoon – (there’s a 5 hour time difference) – and Ken Calvert will kick off a Led Zeppelin Concert Replay at 4:30pm so WCSX listeners will feel like they’re at the show.
