Thanks to a little tape trading, I have some new material from Austin, Texas. There’s no typo with both KQBT and KXBT both being listed for 104.3; the station went Hot Talk for a time as “The Coyote”, dropping its old KQBT calls, and when that didn’t work it went back to its old incarnation as The Beat (or now “Beat 104.3”), but the KQBT call letters it had abandoned had been taken elsewhere, so it had to go with KXBT instead. Follow me on that? Good. Also, thanks to Blair Trosper for the KTND ID from 2002.
Additionally, our debut entry from Medford/Ashland, Oregon is up, also something I acquired in my trading (since I run a Variety Hits website, I’ve been trying to sample some various incarnations of the format from around the country). Check it out and enjoy.
One last thing: to reiterate what Brian said, please, PLEASE check out the rules on submitting .mp3s to the site. We have to have enough lead time on both sides to make it fit the standards of the site. Consider production around the ID as part of the ID for purposes of timing how much to leave on either side. And please make sure your levels are set; overmodulation (or undermodulation) has done in a number of otherwise great submissions. The goal is for the peaks to hit in the -6 to -3 dB range. I say this not to sound anal, but because I hate for people to work hard on a submission, only for it to not be usable because they weren’t clear about what we needed. Your submissions are the lifeblood of this site, and every one of them is immensely appreciated.
