This week we feature some clips from stations just outside of the Spokane core market.
From the Sandpoint-Bonners Ferry Idaho Market we present KPND 95.3. This progressive rock station attempts to serve Spokane, but it is a marginal rim shot and has problems with fading in some parts of the town.
From the Lewistown-Moscow Idaho market, we again present a couple of rim shot stations, one on AM and one on FM. (Can an AM station be a rim shot? I think so, because KMAX 840 Colfax in effect is one for the Spokane Market. It puts in a good signal in the southern part of Spokane but not-so-well in other parts of the town.) KZZL-FM is another station that can be heard in parts of Spokane with a fairly good signal, but only in areas where there is no topographical obstructions between Pullman and Spokane.
We also include a number of stations from the Tri-Cities WA market. Most of the Tri-Cities stations, except for ones like KWHT 103.5, don’t regularly make it to Spokane except during trop openings. All but one of the clips are refreshes, and that one is a call change of the Walla Walla station on 95.7 from KNLT to KKSR. I recorded most of the stations from this market at the Ryegrass Rest Stop on I-90 between Vantage and Ellensburg.
Next week will we look at stations in Central Washington.
Till then, happy listening!
