…I’d think this update was born under a full moon on Friday the 13th or something. There’s some weirdness here, but a lot of new stuff.
We have our first entry from Baton Rouge…kinda. It’s a stretch, really: KKAY is actually from White Castle, LA, but Radio-Locator’s pattern maps say they make it into Baton Rouge during the day, and we’re a generous people around here, so…
When Peter Vieth sent in his ID for WRXT and its’ six simulcast stations in Roanoke-Lynchburg, he wondered if that was some sort of record. In an Alanis Morissette-like turn of events, Paul Walker sent in the one ID I knew for sure could top it: the 12 station Radio Cristiana network ID originating at KUBR in McAllen-Brownsville.
Rikki Eaton sent in some new Michigan IDs from Ludington, Traverse City and Muskegon. When you hit the WMRR ID in the Muskegon section, listen closely for the word “Heights” to make it legal…there’s a pretty impressive attempt to try and hide it going on there.
Alanis strikes again: in the week of the big WCBS-FM/JACK FM protest rally in New York, it would stand to reason that not only would we get our first JACK ID from NYC, but it’d also take a veiled shot at the old format to boot.
I suppose it’s also strange that on the day of a major explosion in St. Louis, Rick Schwarz would happen to be rolling tape on KMOX for us (the explosion was the story on KMOX going into the ID and the lead on the national CBS News update out of the ID).
