There are only so many jokes one can make about having a family event that compels one to visit Omaha, Nebraska in February.
I made most of them over at Site of the Week in the first of what will be three installments (and then a second installment, too!) of pictures and stories about the Omaha broadcast landscape, and so all I can offer now is a complete run of AM IDs from Omaha and vicinity (and thanks to great ground conductivity, those IDs from West Point and Shenandoah sound local even from 50 miles out, don’t they?)
Also, we now have a podcast. Go listen!
Well, who among us wouldn’t want to drive from western New York to eastern Michigan in the middle of January?
As you’ll read in the latest Tower Site of the Week installment, it was the last chance to go to the Joe Louis Arena for a Red Wings game that got us out on the road – and as it turned out, the weather was surprisingly decent and the IDs were cooking.
So this week, it’s a bit more Detroit to go with the big run of Motor City audio we gathered last summer, plus a few stray IDs from the Ann Arbor and Lansing markets. And we get to add some new markets to the list, including a near-complete run of Port Huron MI-Sarnia ON and an even nearer-complete run of Kitchener-Waterloo ON, plus a bit more from London ON, too.
That’s the name of the new “Down East” baseball team that started play this season in Kinston, North Carolina – but we haven’t seen them yet, because when we were Down East most recently, it was January and not yet time for the Carolina League to jump into action.
So we sat around and recorded a ton of IDs, instead. Enjoy even more from the Greenville-New Bern-Morehead City extended market, plus some rimshot signals from Elizabeth City-Nags Head NC, Wilmington NC and a near-complete run of Charlotte NC IDs recorded in the airport while waiting for the puddle jumper to New Bern.
Pictures? We’ve got ’em, over at Tower Site of the Week!
So there’s this big dispute in Syracuse, New York about what to do with the aging elevated I-81 highway through the middle of the city. Some have proposed burying it a symbolic 81 feet underground. Others say it should be closed and I-81 should be looped around on what’s now I-481.
