Is there anyone who hasn't scanned the radio dial on a long road trip and endured noisy static, angry talk shows, and music that disappoints in a desperate search for a classic rock station? But who knew the classic rock concept was born in Michigan almost 30 years ago? Fred Jacobs, an Oakland County-based radio consultant, was part of that birth in 1985. He said WMMQ in Charlotte, Michigan, was the first classic rock station, and the format quickly spread across the country.

Informal Flint radio reunion planned for October

Peter C. Cavanaugh, now prominently showcased in Cleveland's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, will be joined by other past and present Flint radio broadcasters in an "Informal Flint Radio Reunion" at The White Horse Tavern, 621 West Court Street in Flint, from 6 till 8 PM on Monday, October 13, 2014.

Mr. Cavanaugh was Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer of Reams Broadcasting from 1983 through 1992, a period of time which witnessed Flint's WWCK become the highest-rated Rock Station in America. Peter was a top-rated DJ and rock concert promoter at WTAC-AM starting in 1964 -- rising to the rank of President/General Manager before joining Reams and WWCK-FM in 1980. He is a former President of the Flint Area Advertising Federation and was Flint Sales and Marketing Executives' Businessman of the Year in 1982.

Cavanaugh, now a private broadcast consultant and writer for McClatchy Newspapers, lives with his wife, Eileen, in Oakhurst, California at the southern entrance to Yosemite National Park. This "Reunion" at The White Horse marks his first visit back to Flint in five years.

"We're calling this an "informal radio reunion" and that's exactly what's planned", reports Cavanaugh. He continues, " You are enthusiastically invited if you have ever worked for -- or listened to -- any Flint radio station -- ever. All you have to do is show up! "

Fox UP to broadcast 7 Michigan Tech-Northern Michigan University games in 2014-15

WLUC TV's partnership with Michigan Tech and Northern Michigan will continue in 2014-15 with broadcasts of seven events throughout the year. All four hockey games, two women's basketball games and the football game between the teams will air live on Fox UP throughout 13 of 15 counties in the Upper Peninsula and four counties in northern Wisconsin.

The partnership began a year ago with two Tech-Northern hockey broadcasts on Fox UP. The coverage of the rivalry will expand for the upcoming season.

"Due to the overwhelming positive response to, and success of last seasons' broadcasts, we are pleased to be able to continue to grow this venue and further expand the great local sports content that the viewers in our communities enjoy," said Rob Jamros, General Manager at WLUC.

The first event to be televised will be the football game on Sept. 27. The Huskies and Wildcats will meet at the Superior Dome in Marquette for a 7 p.m. kickoff. In hockey, the teams will square off in two home-and-home series--one Jan. 9-10 and the other Mar. 6-7. The Jan. 9 and Mar. 7 games will be at the Berry Events Center in Marquette while the Jan. 10 and Mar. 6 contests will be played at the John MacInnes Student Ice Arena in Houghton. The two Tech-Northern women's basketball games are both in February. Tech will host the Feb. 2 game at the SDC Gym. NMU is home Feb. 26 at the Berry.

"We're pleased to be able to continue the coverage of hockey and showcase one of the best rivalries in the country," said Tech athletic director Suzanne Sanregret. "We're also excited to be able to extend our contract with WLUC to include football and women's basketball. The rivalry between Tech and Northern in all of our sports is always entertaining, and we're happy to be able to share it with fans throughout the UP."

"Last year's broadcasts were a positive experience for everyone involved," said Northern Michigan athletic director Forrest Karr. "I'm happy for the many talented coaches and student-athletes from both schools that we are continuing to grow this partnership."

Commentary by Art Vuolo, Jr.

On Monday, August 25th I had a chance to visit Mackinac Island for the first time in my life! It has been on my "bucket list" for a while. I mean, c'mon, I've lived in Michigan since 1962 and have never seen, nor set foot on, one of our state's most popular tourist attractions. Oh sure, I've sampled the fudge. We've all been drawn to the Ryba's booth locations at the International Auto Show down at the Cobo Center, but I needed to truly experience the real thing.

So, when it was announced that the 65th Anniversary Summer Celebration of the M.A.B. (Michigan Association of Broadcasters) would be held on the island, I knew it would be my opportunity to step on the island and enter the Grand Hotel for the first time. I figured out the hotel got its name when I checked the room rates. Wow! It was slightly higher than Motel 6.

Jim Bandstatter (l) and George Blaha (r)On the evening of August 26th, at a spectacular dinner, many names you know were inducted into the MAB Hall of Fame. Both George Blaha and Jim Brandstatter were to be honored in a room filled with distinguished guests including: Sen. Carl Levin, Congressman John Dingell and longtime Attorney General Frank Kelly among others. Blaha is the legendary voice of Michigan State football and Detroit Pistons basketball. Brandstatter is the new play-by-play voice of Michigan football, teamed with the renowned Dan Dierdorf. Jim is also the color analyst for Detroit Lions football.

Other honorees that night included Susan Goldsen, co-owner of WKHM AM & FM in Jackson, Mario Iacobelli, President & CEO of WWUP and WWTV 9&10 in Northern Michigan, and Eric L. Smith of WNMU Public Radio at Northern Michigan University.

Shaky, hand-held video shot by yours truly is available on YouTube. George Blaha is at www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9-U-K0O4gY and the YouTube link to Jim Brandstatter is at www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovXdOd6Pxms. The video is marginal, but the audio is good.

Speaking of Robbie Timmons' husband, Jim Brandstatter debuted with his new partner, Dan Dierdorf, as the new voice of Michigan football on Saturday August 30, 2014 as the Wolverines pounded Appalachian State 52 to 14. George called an equally easy romp by the MSU Spartans over Jacksonville State 45 to 7.

Jim and Dan have known each other since they were team-mates on the UM squad back in 1969-1970. They have been close friends for all these years and it showed by what came out of the speaker on their inaugural broadcast. They seem to have a magical chemistry. At times I felt like we were listening to a couple frat brothers swapping stories and kidding around with each other. The presentation is warm and friendly, but when Michigan scores, the man formerly known as "Brando," does not hold back with his enthusiastic response!

For fans going to The Big House, you can now take your small portable radio with ear buds or headphones, because finally you can hear the game without delay! All-Sports WTKA-AM (1050) in Ann Arbor, with a 10,000 watt signal, now offers the game in real-time without the annoying 7 or 10 second delay. Thanks to Cumulus Media and IMG Sports with a nudge from the UM Athletic Department for making this happen.

As an archivist of U-M football since 1969, I was honored to be in the booth as Jim and Dan cracked the mic. for the first time together. Video of that initial broadcast (edited down to under five minutes) is also available on YouTube. It even features the editor and founder of michiguide.com, Mike Austerman. The link is: www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZoBofhDroY

SmithVuoloNext week the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) will hold their annual Radio Show conference in The Circle City of Indianapolis. Gordon Smith, who is the CEO & President of the NAB, was up at the Mackinac Island gathering and I had my picture taken with him. It will be interesting to see and hear what the mood of the convention will be and how they paint the picture of radio's future for the balance of this decade as the medium gets ready to celebrate its 100th birthday on November 2, 2020. I will be in Indy to take the temperature of the industry. My report will be honest. Meanwhile, stay tuned.
