We kick off 2013 here on Toppy with some IDs that I was hoping to refresh in the final days of 2012. Had the weather (and a huge breaking local news story, and spousal health) not intervened, Blaine and I would have been somewhere around Lafayette, Indiana in late December. But we weren’t, and so instead this is a good excuse to bring you a bunch of IDs rather quickly recorded during an unexpected stop in Lafayette earlier in 2012.
But wait, there’s more! We also bring you the very first new IDs of 2013 – the sounds of Boston‘s WTKK 96.9 with its first ID after the end of its long talk format, as it headed into what may or may not be a stunt with urban as “Power 96.9” earlier this morning. And up the dial, there are new calls at 101.7 – say goodbye to the short-lived WHBA and welcome WEDX, for “Evolution 101.7.” (Hey Jeff – did you record any “Evolution” under the WHBA calls these last few weeks?)
Starting next week, it’ll be all sunshine and palm trees here for a while, as I start to get serious about digging out “Scott’s Big Trip ’11,” which was all Florida, all the time. Stay tuned!
