Some highlights: the short-lived KBTB in San Francisco, which during the summer of 2004 performed surprisingly well with a hip-hop format on a rimshot signal (it was sold and is now a dance station again)… The WBZZ (Tampa area) March 2005 file is the legal ID open from the Howard Stern show (the laughter at the beginning comes from All Comedy Radio, which airs right before Stern); the station has some of the best imaging of any AM station I’ve heard in awhile… Check out KSJO on its last day as a rock station, and in its new format as a Spanish outlet later that day.
We have two new entries from the Selma, Alabama area (which is just west of Montgomery, AL). Thanks to Chris Cuomo for the submissions.
There are new entries on the site from both Jacksonville and Orlando. Thanks to Ron Gitschier for his contributions; you can hear Ron voicing the 970/1570 dual ID in the Jacksonville listings. Included in this bunch is the now-defunct 1280 WSVE Jacksonville and the short-lived WEBG Orlando.
If that’s not good enough for you, I’ve managed to fix the problem with the extra info on the listings that was causing the listings to look all out of whack. You’ll see a few things listed as “new Saturday” that aren’t new, but that’s because I had to update them so they’d look right on the site. Thanks to Lance from Radio-Info.com for providing a tip that ultimately lead to a solution on that.
Thanks again to Ron Gitschier, who provided the IDs used in this almost all-FM update from Jacksonville. This includes a simulcast ID of WSOS-FM in St. Augustine and its former simulcast partner, 1170 WKLN (which is now WSOS, but which no longer carries its FM counterpart’s programming). Confused? Good, just go check out the IDs. And no, I don’t know why the IDs I upload include the “0:12 – 96 Kbit/s” info — it’s just there.
Huntington, WV has joined the list of markets here on tophour. The newest legal ID comes from Glen Brannon, who I know through the outstanding West Virginia Radio/TV Message Board. The ID is of the old WAMX, from when it was on the 93.7 frequency licensed to Ashland, KY.
In an interesting sidebar, after having been abandoned in 1988, the WAMX call letters were resurrected in the Huntington market in January 1997 (this time on the 106.3 frequency). It was a savvy way to connect a brand new rock station with legacy call letters and an existing history in the market.
