I struggled this week deciding how many ID’s to add today. Do I add four ID’s, since it’s a Final Four weekend? That didn’t sound very satisfactory. Do I find four ID’s from four radio stations in each college’s town? No, don’t have the resources for that. Finally, I came up with it. I’ll add Twelve ID’s.
Now, for all who are scratching their head and muttering “But Nine is the magic radio number!”, I understand this may be tough to understand. Really, you may discard my notion of Twelve being an all important number, as it’s really not.
How did I come up with twelve? Mom and my fourth grade math teacher would both tell you that’s as high as I can count. That’s not true. (Eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourtee…eh, I’m getting off track here.)
Why am I putting up twelve new ID’s? Simple: The Final Four this year is held in Indianapolis. That’s a twelve letter word.
(I know. Mom also said I wasn’t very clever either.)
Here’s the ID’s:
- Appleton, etc. – A 1999 ID from then-WEZR.
- Danville, IL (A new Toppy market!) – We’ll start with a 2001 ID I recorded from WKZS and I’ll add more later.
- Detroit – One of the last ID’s from classical WQRS.
- Fort Wayne – Three ID’s from WJFX – The first is a Mitch Craig ID from 1996 when they were still “Foxy 107.9”, the second ID is a 1998 ID when they were still “Foxy,” and the third ID is very recent, touting their radio ratings performance.
- Las Vegas – A 2000 ID I recorded from KISF.
- NYC – This is the first 1996 ID with WKTU named.
- Rochester, NY – A 1995 live ID from WPXY.
- Syracuse – An ID from a short lived stunt – WHEN-FM – as “Quick 108.”
- Washington, DC – A 1996 live ID from WRNR.
- Waterloo, IA – An ID I recorded in 2000 from KOKZ.
Enjoy the new sounds and the basketball games tonight (if that’s your thing.)
