[ed - Stickied for now. -FA]

Far be it from me to self request a sticky, but I think this information might really help people as it seemed to be asked over and over again during the live blog yesterday.  Feel free to comment and add information, lord knows these are not the only sources of radio on game day.

 

If you want to listen to a Michigan football broadcast go here:

1. Local Radio in Ann Arbor - 1050AM WTKA, 102.9FM

2. Local Radio in Detroit - 950 AM WWJ

3. To listen to the game on the net goto: http://www.mgoblue.com/allaccess/

4. To listen to the game on your Iphone or Android:  1. Go to the App store and get the free application "iheartradio".  2. Run the "iheartradio" app.  3. Go to the all cities link, and search for Grand Rapids, Michigan.  4.  Search for the station WOOD 1300AM, the game will be on there.  [Blue Okie provides an additional source: Big Ten Network app for smart phones also carries the radio broadcast for each team.]

*How to listen to our announcers versus Pam Ward:  In the past, the stream on the net was so far behind the video broadcast that you could use a DVR to hold the video for a few moments and the play by play would then catch up.  This year at least in the first few games the mgoblue feed has been much quicker and thus you could not do this anymore.  I am happy to report that as of yesterday the 'iheartradio' feed is significantly behind the video (at least on ESPNU) and thus you could listen to our announcers, and watch the video using a DVR to match the two up. 

5. Satellite Radio: a. Sirius radio is an official sponsor of many colleges, including Michigan, therefore every game will be on Sirius (thanks MGoShoe)  b. XM does not have specific contracts with schools, but does have league sets of channels (Big Ten, ACC, etc.) While I am local and have not had to use Satellite to listen in that often, I have heard games not locally available on XM through their Big Ten Feeds...One warning for those using Satellite radio, at least a few years ago when I listened to a game, you get only the game itself thus no pregame, no aftergame.  The radio turns on right when the game starts and cuts off right when the game ends
