Over at Site of the Week, you can check out one of the few TV studios to have its own swimming pool out back – and today on Toppy, we fill out the Lansing, Michigan FM dial (including the FM signal that used to broadcast from that motel-esque studio!)
It’s been a while since we updated some of our neighboring markets here in western and central New York, and it was time to fix that – so today’s update kicks off with fairly complete ID sweeps from Buffalo and Syracuse and the northern half of what we call the Ithaca NY market, which really should be “Finger Lakes.”
And we have some IDs that somehow never got posted in 2016 from visits that spring to Wheeling WV, Parkersburg WV-Marietta OH and Cambridge OH. Now they’re up on the site. (You can see the matching Site of the Week pictures here and here.)
OK, perhaps our French is getting rusty. But we did in fact spend a pleasant day in Des Moines as part of our cross-country travels last summer, gathering a near-complete update of IDs. And we also picked up a good chunk of some nearby markets: brand-new Cameron MO on the way up I-35, then Cedar Rapids IA and a very complete run of the Quad Cities IA-IL market, too.
Enjoy – and check out some matching photos from the trip over at Site of the Week!
Our summer 2017 travels didn’t take us to any tower or studio sites in the Colorado Springs market – we were there for non-radio reasons, as it happened – but we had the radios running like crazy out in the car to get as close to a complete sweep of IDs as we could. (It was long overdue!)
(There’s one major local station missing here, but it wasn’t our fault. They didn’t do a legal in 85 minutes of airchecking them across a Sunday afternoon.)
We’re still putting up more Denver pictures over at Site of the Week – but we’re out of Denver IDs from our 2017 trip! So we reached back into the archives for some older material that hadn’t made it to Toppy yet…and we invite you to enjoy a big pile of Atlantic City and Salisbury-Ocean City IDs from summer 2016. The Atlantic City stations have stayed pretty stable, but there have been a bunch of changes in and around Salisbury that we need to get back to the shore to record this summer!
This week’s update finds your editor still fried from filing translator applications for clients (all done!) – but in the meantime, here’s the rest of the Denver FM dial as I recorded it on my August 2017 visit. Again, there are one or two that went astray, in particular no legal from 106.7 KBPI, a few months before the KBPI rock moved to 107.9 up in Fort Collins and a co-channel Denver translator, allowing 106.7 in Denver to become country “Bull.” And I think I missed a couple of HD2 IDs, as well, which may yet turn up.
