  1. I listened to only 2 shows on 92.3 Steve Harvey and Michael Baisden. He got on my nerves sometimes but I thought it was a great business move to have him on the air. I was able to learn of events across the country and often contacted friends in other states who were able to join into the Michael Baisden discussion. It is sad to see him go. I am not a big Frankie Darcel fan. She is not bad. She does not have the energy and zest of the Michael Baisden show.

  3. It took me quite a while to begin to listen to the Michael Baisden show. A lot of the negative commentary others have presented is correct. However, Michael is a voice that can educate and entertain and not just aggravate. I was not a daily listener but did tune in whenever I was in the care during his time slot. If he was too scandalous I would move on to something else. But, I always listened for the information that would empower, educate, and encourage. And most times I could find something downright funny that made the drive a little easier to handle. So, as surprised as I am to say this, I, too, feel WMXD made a huge error in judgement by removing Baisden and replacing him with Ms. Darcell. Her show does nothing to make me take notice and I find her manner annoying. But, having said that, she is a sister doing her thing and I wish her well.

  6. I have mixed feelings on Mike’s removal from WMXD. A lot of his topics were really informative and funny, but a lot of his topics were offensive. You would have to listen while cringing or just switch to another station. Most days I choose to switch to another station other days I would get caught up in the topic and just be depressed at the state we really are in as a race.

  8. I didn’t like MB either after a while but I toloerated him until he made that George guy part of his show, but I can’t stand kwame’s “other woman”. Once a couple of years ago out of the blue she picked on martha Reeves for no good reason and we never got a reason as to why her producer Greg was taken off her show, i bet it was was because he didn’t agree with her on something. She is all about her and what she likes and if you don’t agree or agree to disagree which is really saying she is right she cuts you off. I only listen to the strawberry letter, Footie and the Saturday night show, other than that I listen to Mason and the rest of 107.5 all day, they do play a wide variety of music, give better parties and don’t play that same stuff Jamilla plays every 20 minutes. And Frankie caters to her favories, Rev Winans, and anyone else who would probably help her with her future political endeavors.

  10. There are people in this world who live in a box, and don’t want to think outside of it. they don’t know that where are swingers in the world and some people want to know what swingers do. the are gay youth out there who can’t express it to anyone because the world doen’t understand it, their are people who hate their job, hate their spouse and the list goes on and on. Michael Baisden took that list and took that mic and allowed the world to open their mind to the what if? the other side of life, the things we won’t talk about but, if someone else would. You all know there are pimps in the plupit, why cross Baisden down because you didn’t think of the ideal to open conversations that people actually want to hear and talk about. Michael saved alot of people money from talking to a shrink, the topics were helpful to some and the callers allowed the listeners to hear other peoples(not michaels) view on the subject.Now he is back on at 105.9 kiss fm and 92.3 is going down the tubes.cause most of their listeners are locked into 105.9 kiss fm. The topics have changed for Mr. Baisden, his passion for young people, and literary are taking the forefront. HAters, don’t listen, supporters enjoy the new home 105.9 kiss fm. It wasn’t about the topics anyway, 92.3 let him go because he wouldn’t play the playlist for frankie does, frankie don’t seem to be at the mic, I can tell you what’s about to play because her list never changes and that was before she was given his slot. all she had was commercials, which is why she probably got the time slot back. healthcare issue probably paid a big part in his removal too because as soon as he started talking about it. the air went silent and he was gone without a clue to us listener. WELCOME BACK WELCOME BACK, WELCOME BACK. 105.9 KISS FM ROCKS”

May your journey be peaceful and your family find strength and comfort in their memories of you.To God be the glory
