There’s a lot of Long Island, really – and we didn’t even do the last 20 miles or so out to the eastern eastern eastern end of Montauk when we were there in July. But we did get pretty much all of the island’s IDs, which are now all up on the site – and we had a great time hanging out at WLNG, which you can see at Tower Site of the Week this week.
Consider: a half a century ago, there were barely a dozen radio stations serving the entire 100-mile length of Long Island. Now? We recorded more than 40 stations during our two-day visit in July, and that’s not even counting HD2s and translators! The first half of our visit is up now on Site of the Week, and you can hear IDs from the western half of the island now on Toppy, with the rest coming next week.
It’s kind of a weird mash-up of an update this week, as we keep playing catch-up on some recent Site of the Week postings. We promised you a batch of London, Ontario IDs to go with our Site of the Week looks at that market (here and here), and here they are, a new market on the site.
And we showed you a little bit of Columbia, Missouri on Site of the Week a few weeks back, which prompts us to give you more IDs from the tail end of our cross-country drive this past April: new material from the Columbia-Jefferson City MO, St. Louis MO-IL and Effingham IL markets.
OK, not everything, everything. But you know what the song says about Kansas City, right? I mean, they went and built a skyscraper seven stories high! And we’ve gone about as fur as we can go to bring you a nearly complete collection of legal IDs from two trips through town in April and August 2017. That’s almost as good as a magic lantern show, even if a couple of AMs didn’t ID when they were supposed to and we got rained out of baseball on our first try. So put your ear to a Bell Telephone (or your laptop speaker) and enjoy! (And you can see a bunch of purdy pictures of KC studios, here!)
(And for those of you not raised on musical theater, here’s your explanation…)
Kansas is big. So very, very big. It takes a long, long time to drive I-70 all the way across the Sunflower State.
And somehow I ended up doing that twice in 2017, first in April and again in August.
Now hear all the audio from both trips, new in the markets we dubbed Colby-Goodland KS, Great Bend-Hays KS, Salina-Manhattan KS and Topeka KS – most of them getting their first updates since Greg Coniglio rolled through way, way back in 1995.
Western Colorado is a pretty place – and a very long way from the megalopolis that is the Front Range, 200+ miles to the east. We have a huge pile of Denver/Colorado Springs IDs to share with you here soon…but this week, we’re still recapping our first of two Colorado visits in 2017, the April cross-country drive that found us spending a night in Grand Junction. (See the towers over at Site of the Week!)
