It’s Palm Sunday and April Fool’s Day, so beware of your favorite station pulling a prank on you, the listener.
But tomorrow is Opening Day at Comerica Park, and there’s more buzz about the Tigers this year than any other in memory. Remember, this year will be the first time ever that Detroit baseball will be broadcast FM. All the games will be carried on hot talk WKRK-FM (97.1), which, especially after sundown, when many games are played, will make reception far better than the limited nighttime coverage of sports WXYT-AM (1270).
XM subscribers, meanwhile, can hear any game anywhere in the country. When the Tigers are at home, they’ll also feature Dan Dickerson and Jim Price at the helm with the Detroit broadcast on XM. Very cool indeed. Go Tigers!

Just in time for the baseball season is a brand new four-CD set called “Ernie Harwell’s Audio Scrapbook.” If you love the game, or know someone who does, this is a must have, containing just about every memorable Ernie moment. You can get your own copy via his Web site, www.eharwell.com. We’re so very lucky to have this special sports icon, and his beautiful wife, Lulu, in Oakland County.
