Greetings Music Lovers...
Satellite is good for those that have it, my son is paying for his, and I drive his car occasionally. Need to read a book to learn how to operate it though. I have scanned the stations we have been left with on air, but to no satisfaction, and so like our friend said earlier, pull out the CD's and play on.
Dear Mike, say the frequency and I'm there! I might even contribute like the Public Stations!! But my few dollars won't go very far.
First of all thanks for the vote of confidence. If I ever find enough investors to get a station on the air I'll let you know! Maybe Art Sutton will come to our rescue with AM 870 thought it will only be a daytimer.
I really like XM but the "Standards" channel misses the mark in my view. I'd put more '40's, 50's 60's MOR hits into the mix if I were doing it. 50's on 5 will sound very MOR at times, then do Doo Wop or other early rock and roll.
Standards like we did on WSOC and WBT would be nice. WSAI 1530 a big 50KW powerhouse that comes in here at night had a very good standards format until they went oldies. AM 740 in Toronto (also a 50Kw Pwerhouse) is still doing a standards format and the station can be heard in Charlotte late at night.
With all the signals in Charlotte there should be room for as many formats as you can dream up. Anybody remember "The CBS Radio Mystery Theatre"? I enjoyed that show.
