OK, I admit it – I’m stalling. At some point in the next few weeks, I’ll start the taps flowing on a whole stream of IDs from one of the several “mini-Big Trips” I took in the summer of 2008, en route to (maybe?) getting caught up with what’s once again a growing pile of backlogged tapes and digital audio files that need to be edited down and posted here.
But there are two problems along the way. Beyond the obvious one of simple procrastination (and when it comes to crastinating, I’m no amateur, I’m a pro!), there’s the attempt I usually make to coordinate big series of Toppy postings with photo essays over at Tower Site of the Week.
Problem is, Tower Site is tied up through the end of the month with a different series – my annual attempt to sell as many Tower Site Calendars as I can before the new year begins. (Have you bought yours yet?)
So my big series of Pennsylvania-Maryland-DC IDs and photos won’t start rolling until early December.
But in the meantime, I found a batch of IDs on the hard drive that are largely new to Toppy: a full run of AM from the Ithaca, NY market and a few IDs from an area near me that’s never made a Toppy appearance, the northern Finger Lakes, which appear here as the new Geneva, NY market.
As I’ll explain in more detail next week, these IDs from early 2008 captured the market just ahead of some big transitions (some of them still incomplete!)
Oh, and have you bought your Tower Site Calendar yet? Just checking…
