Clearing THe Static 137

Issues discussed on the program this week include:
1.  A radio station owner in Arizona has requested to turn off his AM
1470 KVSL in Sholo, and allow it's FM translator to become the primary
station for a testing periond of 1 year.  Will this open the doors to
more applications like this, and ussher in the end of AM radio?  We
discuss.
2.  A  sports station in Jacksonville, FL changes it's name.
3.  The "Streetz" have been rolled up in Little Rock, AR, and fans of
Gospel can "Rejoice", as Salem takes back control of KXDE (101.3.)
4.  Call animal control in Denver -- "The Wolf" is dead, and KWOF
(92.5) is flying to a new "Altitude."  This, plus the fact that it's
sister station, 950 KKSE is airing ESPN around the clock makes 6
sports station in the mile high city.
5.  Cumulus is selling their cluster in Blaxburg, VA to monticello media.
6.  There's a new "Wave" in Norfolk, VA, as WVBW (92.9) segs from AC
to Classic Hits.
7.  Yo!  There's a new sound in West Palm Beach, FL, as Classic Hiphop
debuts on an Hd to translator station -- giving the area an
interesting flanker between 2 competing stations in the market.
8.  Cannonball!  A new Variety Hits station splashes into Pocotello,
ID, replacing the Mormon music "Sunny" format there.  This station has
an interesting approach to jocks, as well.
9.  Watch out for "The Killer Bee!"  A new Classic Rock leaning
Classic Hits format has launched in the suburbs of the Twin Cities of
Minnesota.
10.  CBS Sports Radio launches in Waco, TX on an HD to translator station.
11.  KQSF, "Q95.7" in Sue Falls, SD, ditches Classic Hits for CHR.
Why did they do this?  It has to do with ratings.
12.  The sun is moving in Panca City, OK, as "Sunny" moves to 1230 AM
to run away from a "Bull" that has invaded 104.7.
13.  Catholic operator Imaculate Heart Radio is buying WVNJ (1160) in
New Jersey.  Say goodbye to the brokered talk there.
14.  El Paso, TX now has a "Lonestar" on 920.
15.  "Alt"  come to Huntsville, AL on 92.9 curtacy of IHeart Media.

Tue, Sep 11, 10:33 AM (1 day ago)
to me
Issues discussed on thins week's show include:
1.  The FCC is taking the first steps towards deregulating the radio
airwaves, as it asks radio station owners to submit comments to them
about how other services like Facebook, Spotify, Google, Pandora and
others that are not regulated have impacted their business.
2.  Alt 95.9 does indeed come to Ithaca, NY.  We review the
competitive market situation there.
3.  Things get "Sunny" in Bakersfield, CA, as IHeart Media blows up
it's Spanish Variety Hits "La Preciosa" there to compete against
Alpha's 101.5 KGFM.  Will the lighter, yet still upbeat mix of music
on the "Sunny" side make for some clouds for Alpha?  We discuss.
4.  Crossville, TN gets some "Spirit" as CHR "Vibe" moves to
accomodate a new CCM station there.
5.  A Classic Country "Outlaw" is lose in Iowa and Nebraska, as Saga
debuts it's metrosignal "Outlaw" format on 2 translators in Yankton
and Siuox City, respectively.
6.  In the sunny state of Florida, the hispanic community is getting
some "Accion" as IHeart Media takes over 810 WRSO and a 97.9
translator there.  Also, WFLF has a new translator in the market on
93.3.  How will this all impact Orlando listeners?  We discuss.
7.  "Hank" is dead in Tallahassee, FL, as, now, he is part of the
"Tally."  "Tally" is one of those texting nicknames for Florida's
capital city, and the new name for what is now WXTY (99.9).
8.  The Texas state capital seems to have no limits musically, as AAA
KGSR (93.3) flips to a broad musical playlist as "Austin City Limits
Radio."  This new station, named for the TV show, festival, and
concert venue of the same names, is meant to sound like an asthetic --
not a radio station.  As such, we discuss whether or not this almost
non-radio  approach will bring yonger ears to radio.
9.  "G!" "Alt" in Louisville, KY, as WGHL (105.1) drops Classic Hiphop
for Alternative, and melding the former into the playlist of Urban AC
"Magic 101.3."
10.  WXEX on the New Hampshire seacoast flips from "Classic Rock" to
"Seacoast" 70's oldies.  But WXEX is an AM and FM simulcast on 1540
and 92.1 -- both fullpower stations.  Should they split AM and FM to
do separate programming?  Jake Longwell has some thoughts.
11.  Denver isn't "Cruisin'" on 1430 anymore, so I guess they can take
it "EZ."  That's the name of the new Soft Olides format on KEZW there.
But how much of the oldies are truly gone?  We discuss.

2 Girls 1 Name 28

FIrst show from Saffron's new place, but that doesn't stop all the craziness that goes on .

Listen

Clearing The Static 1835

ssues discussed on this week's show include:
1.  Could a new Alternative station be coming to Ithaca, NY?  It's
possible -- no, make that likely, as Saga communications splits off a
95.9 translator from WHCU -- now that that station has a 97.7
translator to call it's own, and starts stunting with Ithaca area
group XAmbasidors on 95.9.  What will this mean for the Ithaca market?
 We discuss.
2.  A new Christian station comes to New York State's Hudson Valley,
as WHBC hits the air at 102.5.  But what about the "Redeemer Radio"
programming heard there?  It's already on WFSO (88.9.)  So will WFSO
change?
3.  The Hudson Valley loses it's Jazz station, as Bud Williamson can
no longer afford to keep WJZZ (88.1) going.  This, again, ignites the
discussion on how to save non-commercial radio.
4.  ESPN Radio has come to Pensacola, FL, as ADX debuts "ESPN 94.5."
5.  Meanwhile in VirMont, ESPN is disappearing from WCPV in
Burlington, as that station picks up Fox Sports, and plays a new
sports "Game" with the 101.3 frequency.
6.  Say goodbye to LGBT targeted radio in America, as IHeart blows up
"Pride Radio" on 96.7 in the Twin Cities of Minnisota in favor of
"KFan Plus," an extention of "KFan 100.3" there.  This leads to a
broader discussion of the lack of LGBT themed programming available on
the radio dial, and if anything can be done about this.
7.  An Illinois station is getting new calls, as former staff of WCAZ
