OK, yes, we desperately need to some weeding – a lot of weeding – out behind the Family Room of Toppy Northeast, and, yeah, we’re sort of ignoring it in hopes that we’ll get the Great Renovation of 2007 underway soon and we’ll just end up ripping the whole yard out and starting from scratch.
But that’s not what we’re talking about this week – no, we’re thinking of Binghamton, a smallish market about 150 miles down the road from Toppy Northeast. We’ve spent more of the last three and a half decades there than we’d care to think about, visiting relatives and stopping off on the way to New York City and other more exciting destinations. (Oh, and also Scranton.)
Yet we’ve been really sucky (that’s the technical term) about bothering to update the haphazard collection of legal IDs from the market here on Toppy. I mean, the most recent ID we have from WNBF is from 1947, for crying out loud! (Actually, that’s a really cool one, courtesy of Binghamton radio history guru Jon Scaptura.)
So as time permits, I’ll try to rectify all those years of neglect, starting this week with a partial market scan from the week I spent in Binghamton one morning this past January…including a current WNBF, and the WINR 680 legal that sounds like it probably hasn’t changed since 1947!
