Re: CJBK and CKSL London, Ontario

I think it must have been 1250, but I heard 16 towers. The dozen plus sounds like a Day and Night array with one tower in common.

Re: CJBK and CKSL London, Ontario

CHLO and CHFI/CFTR both operated on 680 for a while, with 1000 watts Day. CHFI was 10000 watts Night. In order to upgrade to 50 kW, the owners paid the owners of CHLO to move to 1570. In between the move and the upgrade to 50 kW, I could easily tune WDBC 680 Escanaba in the Daytime by nulling out CH...

Re: CJBK and CKSL London, Ontario

I listened to CHLO 680 before they moved, which could be heard far and wide Days, and then 1570, which could be heard all over at Night until they let 1570s in the US go on at Night.

I rarely heard CJBK/CJOE and CKSL because of their DA patterns.

Re: Bob Seger, Terry Knight, ? & Mysterians, Tidal Waves, Unrelated Segments, etc.

Kev, do you know where to find Mark Karpinski? He came in quite a few years ago and talked with us, but now I don't know where to find him. I'm interested if he has any more surveys from the era from outstate MI. The CKLW and WKNR charts are pretty much complete on ARSA and ct30. Here's the #1 Chart...

Re: Real Time DX Log

It was on a GE SuperRadio II Barefoot. Every day, about 4:00 PM or so, I start at the upper limit of the unmodified radio. The first one I have encountered the last few days is WSJP 1640 in Sussex, WI. I look for clear signals when I go by. When I find a format, I look through a list by format. If I...

Many comments by L. Russell Brown, the composer.

BTW, this predates the Doors, and they did steal the guitar riffs done by Brown from "C'mon Marianne" in "Touch Me".

Re: Part time contract engineer opening

She sent him my email. She's going to talk to him about it tonight. He lives in the Sterling Heights area, so if it's the antenna farm area, that's great I would think.

Re: New Music for Old Folks

I graduated from high school in 1977, but I've been able to appreciate some current music, thanks to restaurant radio, Amazon Prime, and Saturday Night Live. My 2000s playlist on Amazon Prime includes these artists: Colby Caillat (Coco album) Katy Perry (a few singles and several album cuts, includ...

The Mills Brothers sang about something similar in 1968.

Re: Part time contract engineer opening

I know someone who had a First Phone years ago, but never worked in Broadcasting. He does maintenance on cellular and other radio utility installations as I recall. I used to work with his significant other. I can ask her if he's interested. So that would be part time 5-8 hours a week. Is there a lo...

I remember seeing the array when we went to that area on vacation. A few miles south of the array was a building that beacons as porch lights. I assume it was the original studio?
Or maybe they bought them from that Elrod fellow who cuts the towers down of stations he doesn't like.

Here are a lot of stories and interviews with Chicago Area Radio Stations in 1979. They interviewed Larry Lujack, and mentioned John Landecker and others mentioned in this thread in this Chicago Tribune Tabloid Section. https://www.americanradiohistory.com/Archive-Station-Albums/Chicago-Trib-1979-Ma...

Re: WCRZ Calls Out Radio Shock Jock

I assume this was a Cumulus DJ who made the joke, since he probably would have been in trouble if he publicly criticized a fellow Townsquare DJ.
