…or at least that’s what the public broadcasters in Buffalo, New York would like you to believe. This Leap Day is the last full day of independent programming on WBFO 88.7 (and its satellites in Olean and Jamestown) before SUNY sells the stations to rival pubcaster WNED. At 4 PM on March 1, WBFO will begin simulcasting WNED 970 with a new, merged schedule of NPR news, talk and some weekend blues…but before that happens, we’re here with some of the last standalone IDs from WBFO’s main channel and its HD subs, plus WNED itself. (The WBFO ID heard here is the last one from Anita West’s final Sunday afternoon blues show from the old WBFO studios.)
Needless to say, we’ll be back next week with a merged WBFO-WNED-WOLN-WUBJ-WNED-FM-HD2 legal for your enjoyment.
And in the meantime, since Leap Day only comes around on my Toppy posting day once every couple of decades, we continue the celebration with a batch of recent IDs from Riverside-San Bernardino CA, which is also the subject of this week’s Tower Site of the Week.
