Another early 80's was 88.7 FM, CHOM("Ohm Radio")...came in crystal clear in Northern Ohio but tower is in Windsor.
Actually, it was called CJOM when it started in the 1970s. CJOM = Ontario and Michigan, with the CJ as part of the limited call letter prefixes available to Canadian stations. It was a true "underground" FM radio station, playing a wide variety of the era's progressive rock with free-form DJs and, being Canadian, it was able to air comedy cuts with language that the US stations could not broadcast. Like George Carlins' "Seven Dirty Words." In other words, a real find for teenagers across the border. It was, and remains, 100kw, same as 89.9 and 93.9 from Windsor. While 93.9 used to broadcast from a now-removed tower on the Detroit River at the old CKLW-TV studios on Riverside Dr., I think all three of the full powered Windsor stations now use a site or two in rural MacGregor, which is a few miles inland from Grosse Isle Michigan, and only about 40 miles or so from most of Toledo.
And, to follow up with a little historical correction from another poster:
AM1520 WTTO did cover most of Toledo day and night - it just had its main coverage area for both transmitters centered in the Old West End, which contributed to eventually changing the format to soul gospel. Listening to it along Alexis Road on the way back and forth to Whitmer High School from Point Place, the 6-tower daytime transmitter site just across the state line in Temperance added in a lot of phasing. which actually sounded kinda cool on some of the music. It was 1kw and had a nice clean sound, especiall from the more targeted nighttime TX site near Perrysburg, and I think they used a slight echo to enhance it a bit. Cool jingle package for the time, and if CKLW wasn't there to provide a stronger signal without the phasing for another 200 miles past Toledo, as opposed to the 20 miles you'd get WTTO before it had to fade away, it might have survived a bit longer. But WOHO 1470 was really the big pop station for Toledo, with tight personalities, news once in a while, and an authoritative sound as the dominant top 40 in the market, and was the main local competitor to CKLW. Anobody remember the "John John John" weekends, when they featured songs from Elton John, Olivia Newton John and John Denver heavily? And their Memorial Day oldies weekends, with the old jingle package from the 1950s, I suppose, was classic in the true sense of the word. Lew Dickey Sr's flagship station sounded great. (And I'm astounded nobody has brought back the WOHO call letters - "Woe-Hoe" was a solid brand, and probably still has a lot of cache.)
The directional arrays and comparatively low power (1kw) of both WOHO and WTTO meant you couldn't get a good signal in the growing southwest part of town around Southwyck, and coverage didn't make it far outside the immediate metro area, tho' you could hear them OK for a bit north and south in Monroe and Bowling Green (not quite so good at night, however).
I wonder if Ken R monitors these boards and has any links to old airchecks of these stations that we could hear, for old time's sake?
I would also love to hear if anyone still living has airchecks of 730 WMGS in any of its pre-Jimmy Swaggart incarnations, country-politan (I think Ken R had a hand in that for about a year in 1973), bankrupt country, country-western, and, in its earliest days as WWBG as a hot early 1960s top 40 that I'm told came in loud and clear as far south as Dayton (as opposed to the weak and fuzzy mega signal it has now).
I've got an old reel to reel of some of their non-singing jingles somewhere in a box. Anyone know of a place around Seattle that might be able to salvage the audio, assuming the tape is intact?
