Does anyone remember cable FM? This was pre-Digital Music Express days when cable systems would import FM signals from usually nearby large markets to smaller markets with few stations and modulate them on the FM dial. Using a splitter, you could connect your FM radio to the cable and receive these signals. Classical WFMT from Chicago was what could have been considered an FM superstation, as it was carried on many cable systems across the country.
In Longview, TX, our cable system carried several stations from DFW.
90.5 KERA-FM 90.1 Public Radio
91.1 KZEW 97.9 AOR
94.7 KOAX 105.3 Beautiful Music
95.1 KVIL 103.7 Adult Contemporary
96.5 (then later moved to 97.1) WRR-FM 101.1 Classical
When MTV was added to the cable system in 1982, a stereo version of MTV's audio was added to 102.5. At that time few people had MTS stereo capable sets.
I can remember listening to KERA-FM on the cable system as late as 1994. Sometime after that the cable FM service was discontinued.
I lived in Austin 1986-1987 and Austin Cablevision carried WFMT and several San Antonio stations, including 99.5 KISS on 99.1. Austin Cablevision also carried FM stereo audio from MTV, HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, and The Movie Channel.
Rogers and then Paragon Cable used to do that until I would say 1996. I would get Austin's KEY 103.5 KEYI, Froggy 94.7 KFGI, and 92.1 KNBT off of it. I heard they still do that in San Marcos.
