Re: Long Songs

I agree with that. His two books, "Waging Heavy Peace" and "Special Deluxe" are pretty good, too. I've always appreciated Gordon Lightfoot, as well as both Burton Cummings and Randy Bachman for their work solo and together, but Neil's in another league altogether. Back in the long songs category, Lo...

Re: Long Songs

Neil Young was mentioned earlier- he had two long songs on 2007's "Chrome Dreams II" album. "Ordinary People" ran 18:13, and "No Hidden Path" was 14:31. He's put long songs on a number of his albums, but not usually two on the same collection. Neil has released numerous previously unreleased tracks ...

Re: R. Dean Taylor dies

Sorry to read that. I also liked his songs "Taos New Mexico" and "Gotta See Jane", both occasionally heard on CKWW, AM 580.

Re: WLUC fires Weather Staffer

https://www.linkedin.com/in/karl-bohnak-6337636 Looked up Karl's LinkedIn page, and it says he works for Barrington Broadcasting, which sold their stations and ceased to exist over 8 years ago. Doesn't seem like he remembered his account existed, or else it's some statement of defiance against chang...

Good idea. I thought of this track that could be their theme song.

Re: 1480 & 850 Shutting Down

Thanks. I'm still sore about the school tossing away the stations, but that disappointment isn't much different than any time I saw management or ownership take a good thing and ruin it by basing decisions on economics or personal bias rather than what the listener might really want. One wonders how...

Re: This TV 4.2 OTA

Not much different than any of the OTAs where they turn a 20 minute sitcom into a 30 min infomercial. Some cable channels like to take those "feel-good" half-hour sitcoms and toss in an extra 6-7 minutes of ads per episode. They figure you won't notice or care much if that favorite scene is coming ...

Re: 1480 & 850 Shutting Down

Thanks for clarifying how the scenario went down. I had suspected that the value of the land being sold was the only real consideration, and the virtue of the public aspect of the station was also the fault of the "not-in-the-broadcasting-business-so-not-too-concerned-about-whether-the-listeners-lik...

Re: WGVU Oldies sign will off at 2PM 1/7/2022

The montage was chronological from the late 50's to the early 70's, created by WGVU for when they signed on, I believe.

After playing a montage that they said started the format, there was some of the news sounder, NPR News starting, then silence, then the song Bob Mason said he played to start his career in 1969, "Jean" by Oliver, began playing. We heard a bit more of NPR News mixed in with the song for a moment, th...

What would you pick for the last song to play on WGVU?
I'd play "My Way" by Frank Sinatra, followed by "Last Date" by Floyd Cramer. Frank sums up his message on a high note, and Floyd plays it cool as the door closes behind him.

Re: 1480 & 850 Shutting Down

Back when, the top 40 included a wide range of music styles, and lesser-known artists could catch a break with a hit here and there. Oldies or Classic Hits stations tend to focus on what hit the top 20 and has tested well in their research. That's knocking out the variety that made that era's hit ra...

The WARD call letters could be acquired by someone to form an informal network dedicated to the preservation of "Leave It To Beaver", joining WJUN-AM in Mexico, PA, WBEV-AM in Beaver Dam WI, and WALY-FM in Altoona, PA.

Re: John O'Leary RIP

Listened to the second half of the John O' Leary podcast from Radio Daze today. It was entertaining, and great to hear him again, but bittersweet to hear him speaking of the future with optimism.
