"Our license is up for renewal.. please come to our studios at..forgotten address, crestview, fl and fill out a report about how well we are doing" forgot the rest.
I know it's first ave..
The purpose for this discussion is if they don't get their license renewed, what will happen to them? This WOULD be an end of an era.
Every single mother loving radio station in the USA does this every (how many?) years. Nothing ever happens to any of them! License would get renewed even if they were playing Howard Stern in the morning and unedited gangster rap from Midnight till 4 AM! Heck, they could even give me the board to play some XXX rated David Allen Coe songs after midnight and still get the license renewed.
Tech Nick Al It E. They (WAZZ) just don't hide the "official" on-air notice as well as Corporate Radio stations do. The fact that you even heard the notice at all proves that WAAZ is doing business in the "spirit of the law". Isn't this notice usually buried in the stations sign-off?
And if something god awful happened and the license was not renewed and they lost all their appeals it would result in a flood of applications to change frequencies or increase facilities for adjacent and co-channel stations nearby that desperately want some of WAAZ's bandwidth. No way this would happen. CCENG and Tibbs have already shown their love for Crestview and would step up and fix things if Jimmy and his people fell down on the job.
Dang, I'm amped up today ain't I? Maybe I should crawl back into my hidey hole and keep working on this beard.
