Some neat finds on some cassettes from a friend

CHOO Ajax with country music and anncr.

92.5 WMJQ Rochester with anncr, possibly named Major Tom, talking over the intro to a song during what appeared to be some countdown program.

96.5 CFMK Kingston with jingle, later intro to artist spotlight program.

97.9 WPXY Rochester with anncr beginning a forty-five minute rock ride.

98.3 CFLY Kingston with anncrs giving time and front selling songs, one of them being Neil Kirby. Also a stopset of commercials including Graham Thomson Real Estate, Dollar Forty-four Days at Wilko, and Beckerton Brokers.

107.9 WRRB Syracuse with anncr frontselling song, later giving timecheck and IDing station as the country leader in the middle of promotional jingle.


Picked up WDCX last Saturday morning with financial advice show followed by "The Raugh Truth."

It is indeed sad to learn of the death of Dr. Joy Brown. She was one of the few remaining weekday talk show hosts who actually did something useful, as opposed to political sniping.

Listen to Radio Northern Star.

Would like to listen to Radio That Doesn't Suck but can't get the player to work.

Have been picking up WDCX Buffalo the last couple Sundays with the program from Scott Street Church in St. Catharines.

Haven't been getting CKOL on 100.7 ever since the Thursday night I picked up 93.7 WBLK Buffalo on that frequency.

Have really been enjoying the new serees "Big Country" on CBC Radio One. I love the eclectic playlists. Also, Canadians have been making a splash in Nashville for decades but CBC so rarely highlights anybody newer than Hank Snow, with the exception of Shania Twain.

Listen to The Haze FM.

Also, listen to Blast The Radio.

Came across a couple interesting tapes recently.

The first had been dubbed from a cd and featured Christian children's songs, later explained as being part of a Sunday school ciriculum from Thank You Music. After this explanation, there followed a sample of RandB style songs for the December 1996 African-American ciriculum. The person making the tape apparently then stopped the cd and switched over to what I guessed was the AM side of the radio spectrum with a partial soundbite of a woman on a telephone discussing what sounded like job action on the part of nurses.

The other tape was of a Christmas program done at a church as a fundraiser for Heart of Hastings Hospice. There was a welcome, music by a choir, a call to worship, prayer, readings, and the offering. It sounded like it might have been dubbed from a master tape of the event as there was about thirty seconds of repetition at one point.


97.9 WPXY Rochester with ID and Sean Paul song.

98.9 WBZA Rochester with traffic report, commercials and classic rock songs.

101.3 WRMM Rochester with traffic report and rap-type song.
