They Built This City

You know that donut in the middle of Starship’s “We Built This City”? (And can that song really be three decades old already?) Go ahead and fill it with the legal ID of your choice, because we’ve got a big, big batch of San Francisco IDs that would all make sense there. OK, maybe not the Vietnamese one, but still.

Check out Bay Area studio and transmitter pics, too, at Tower Site of the Week, right over here.


Still here!

I warned you we might miss a week or two here and there amidst our summer travels, didn’t I? But never fear, Toppy’s still breathing, and slowly catching up to the backlog, even.

This week, enjoy some IDs from New York’s North Country, identified here as the “Massena NY” market and by everyone else as “that place you never thought of until those prisoners escaped.”

Want to see some towers and studios? We’ve got those on Tower Site of the Week, here and here.



Between Nashville and Memphis

Between Nashville and Memphis on Interstate 40 is the city of Jackson, an interesting place when it comes to media. There is local radio and television there, but out-of-market stations have a strong influence. To point, the hotel where I stayed during my visit earlier this month had WTVF out of Nashville as its CBS station, which surprised me given that Jackson is 40 miles or so closer to Memphis.

Up tonight on the site are IDs I recorded during my visit to Jackson, including a pair of first-time stations making their Tophour debut.
