This isn’t my normal day to post on here, but I have a few IDs from three different markets to share, and I’d prefer to do it now before the weekend blitz gets going.
-I’m going to Evansville, IN tomorrow to see Butler take on Evansville in a men’s basketball game at the brand new Ford Center. My girlfriend Stacy and I went up there in February to the last game at UE basketball’s now-former home, Roberts Stadium (oddly named since it is an arena in the traditional sense, not a stadium as you might traditionally think of an open-air ballpark), and now we’re going to their first game at the brand new place. And, from that last visit, I have two new IDs up, including one from the station where I made my on-air debut, WUEV, as a freshman in college at UE in 1995.
-This past Friday night I found myself in Shelby County, which is where Memphis is located. We weren’t in the city limits, but right next to it in the town of Cordova. My broadcasting role was to provide color commentary for the webcast of a high school playoff football game. Thanks to TSSAA rules, you either have to pay the TSSAA $750 to provide a live webcast with video, or you can pay them nothing and do audio-only. So it was audio-only for us, but that took me back to my WUEV days of radio sports broadcasting.
I rolled tape and recorded digitally what I could, and for now two IDs snagged during that trip are up on the site, including one from the newly-flipped-to-sports 790 WMC.
I’ll be calling a football game in west Nashville tonight. The upside: no long trip to/from Nashville. The downside: it’s supposed to be a cold night in middle Tennessee. I’ll be bundled up for that; just past midnight in town here it’s 26 degrees. Brrr.
-My aforementioned girlfriend Stacy took a trip to Louisville last month, and because she’s so great she brought a recording device along and captured the legal ID for the very cool 100.5 Gen-X radio (WLGX), which is finally represented here on the site.
