Metro Detroit: Newsmakers Nov 25, 2008




Greater Media, Inc. announced today that three of its radio stations are among the first in the nation to provide exciting new technology which enables listeners to access and hear the station's stream on their iPhone with the touch of a button. The application, developed by Jacobs Media, is now available to listeners of Radio 92.9 FM WBOS in Boston, MA; WRIF FM in Detroit, MI; and 95.9 FM WRAT in Point Pleasant/Belmar, NJ. They will be joined soon by WMMR-FM in Philadelphia, PA. IPhone One Touch Access is unique because listeners now have the ability to directly access a station's audio stream instead of having to access a directory. In addition, the station's logo becomes an icon within easy reach right on their iPhone. The application also allows the station to provide its HD2 channel under its single icon/logo...

Channel 95.5 Big Boy's 'Doosh Bag' Song On Fire: CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 night stud BIG BOY and BRILLIANCE have created a huge phone song, "Doosh Bag." How'd it come about? BIG BOY told ALL ACCESS, "After three years of doing my show here at CHANNEL 95.5, I realized, that every girl, whether they love their man or not, at some point, thinks he is a Doosh Bag...Not only that, but almost every girl thinks her best friends boyfriend is a Doosh Bag, and that she should leave him for a better man. "I do five club gigs a week, and the Doosh Bag guys at the club perv'ing on every girl that walks in, are at an all time high! So myself, and DETROIT Rap artist BRILLIANCE, came up with this track, and its really exploding here at WKQI." (Tue, 11/25)
