I work for a company which provides News , traffic and weather and have no relation with the stations content. Im also the Fulltime News anchor on WDTK 1400am between 12-7pm. Top and Bottom of the hours. :bouncy:



Hm. I might have to hit you up for a job one of these days. I worked at WJR doing various behind-the-scenes production and the on-air flight cancellation report during Paul W Smith's show for about a year before getting laid off (pretty much anyone who was under 50 and/or hadn't been there for at least half a decade was blown out). This was about a year and a half ago; I was going to get another radio job but got sucked into where I am now doing EDI & computer support for a totally seperate company.

If anyone lives in the Tri-Cities area and wants to Garage Sale and split gas money sometime, let me know.

And if anybody knows a way to find out a lot of Garage Sales in MI, let me know.
I tried Craigslist but I guess MI hasn't found out about it yet.

I did it too. Makes sense though, I mean gas is expensive and going to garage sales is alot more fun with another person. Cheaper gas and company from a fellow gamer makes perfect sense.

I love 90.9! That's pretty much all I listen to. Isn't there someone who does traffic reports under a radio name that's some kind of traffic pun on that site? I forget what the name is though...

Just in case anyone is interested, the Mammoth Video in Commerce Township on the corners of Commerce and Carrol Lake road is having an sidewalk sale. All their used PS2/GCN/XBOX games are $8. The only things that caught my eye were Halo 2 (lots of copies), a CastleVania game for PS2 and Psychonauts. Lots of other games there (probably 200 total when I was there).

Hey guys, I work part-time at the compusa at the CompUSA in Bloomfield Hills on Telegraph. We are going out of business and a liqudator has taken over the store. All the systems, games, and accessories are 15% off and we have 9 Xbox 360's for $340 if anyone needs one. We have all the new releases through the last week of July so you can get some games on the cheap as well.

If you have a Gamerush near you they have the 12 Month XBL Kit with Game for only $17.50 on clearance. Also, it is a YMMV on the price match of the receipt because most stores don't do it but some do.
Never settle for full price unless you have no other choice. ;)

Is there any chance that the clearences go lower than 15% and when would they do that?

They have gone to 20% on some products including games.

Computers are being sold too fast and we wont get any more from other stores. We do have a shit load of monitors and actually have a 17inch widscreen lcd for under $200 with a 8ms response rate.

Damn. I'm at the PSP next door once a month. I'll have to pop in next time.

Is any computer software (not games) being clearanced or is it being shipped to other stores?

Since we went to 20%, a large majority of the software was shipped back to the manufactures since most non-gaming software is issued on consignment. We still have some but not as much as we had a week ago.

I'm guessing you're a Wayne Stater? Specs Howard tends to put people everywhere else but Detroit.

I did the Specs thing back in the late 90's and went to class with a lot of people that went on to 97.1. I always seemed to get the christian radio stations, though. Last gig I did was weekends at 1500am (I think!) and I left because that I was my second job - my "main" job was I had just started working for Big Blue making about six times what any other station wanted to pay me, plus OT, bennies, 401(k), etc. Not a hard decision to switch...

I do kinda miss it at times, because it was such a fun job - and most people don't realize that you're usually always busy. When I am feeling masochistic, I sometimes consider looking for an overnight shift in addition to my ~50 hr a week day job.

The funniest on-air thing that ever happened to me was I was filling in on the Fourth of July and while I was on the air, I heard a knock at my door. The person I was filling in for NEVER told me she had scheduled an in-studio guest for an interview and CD giveaway. So I fumbled my way through the interview (asking the most basic questions) and decided to give away a few CDs. I said the fifth person to call would win the first of the guest's CDs...and no one called! I felt embarrassed for the guest and when the phone finally rang, I announced them the winner. (Only to find out later that the station never sent the CDs out to them!)

I know...way off topic (and a several month old post), but sometimes, I do kinda miss radio...

I enjoyed the post. I worked for my high school radio station for two years and we really racked up the MAB and MAEB awards. Being a dj and sports director was a ton of fun and I miss it all the time.

Really? The main (now only) IBM building is right on 9 mile and Southfield in Southfield. I used to work on the ninth floor there until I was trasnferred to a customer account. I loved my desk there. My desk was at the window facing Fox 2 and I would watch the Skyfox helicopter take off and land all the time...

I spent many years though as a "road warrior" before that and also did a lot of POS stuff for Best Buy and Target...things I do not miss at all...

A little late, admittedly, but I got jack. I'm a little short on cash for the next week and I really didn't want to blow what was left on some of the HDTV sales I saw. (However, I came THIS close to buying that door buster one at BB anyway...)

Hey guys, I have a PS3 60gb I would like to sell to a Cagger in Michigan if possible for a local pickup. I live in Canton and am wanting to sell the 60GB PS3 for $860 and avoid the pain of selling on Ebay. I would accept cash and money order only for a local pickup. If anyone is interested leave me a PM. If it works with my schedule, I would even deliver the system.
