WOUF Back! On 750 Petoskey.

WARD 750 is now WOUF, recycling the call letters from Bear Lake.

Roy will continue to pursue this tomfoolery until his last days.

I would have kept WARD. It's one of those "word" calls. Isn't Ward his son in law? They don't use them except in the Top of the Hour ID. Or maybe they thought people would associate it with asylums? Or Big City Politics? In any event, it extends a decent format to the far fringes of WLDR's signal.

Ward is the name of one of his sons.

I can guarantee, that only industry insiders, and radio geeks give a single shit about any of this.

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.

They could run programming like the old "Breakfast With The Beaver" comedy bits that were part of the (I believe) Q105/Tampa morning show in the early 1980's. I have a recording of that somewhere, but most old audio is uncatelogued and on tape, itself a tenuous medium for long-term retrieval.

That extends the subject beyond radio to classic TV, but it's still a niche interest topic.

Or maybe run lots of great Burt Ward quips from the old Batman TV series.

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

Yow! I almost can't believe anybody would market something so dirt bike friendly. Thanks youtu.be.

Yeah, let's loop this and run it 24/7 on the new WARD. All Burt, All the Time
