Hello, and welcome into podcast 211 of All Things Radio!
Coming up in Jeff’s radio news segment changes at radio station WWIQ in Philadelphia, and WGN in Chicago. WMGC in Detroit gets an all sports format,and we wrap up this week’s segment with a look at the June Personal People Meter as well as a quick look at what’s happening on the street.
In Jenny’s call letter and format changes we get caught up on changes for July so far. Lots of stations are changing call letters this month.
Walt’s Retro Radio segment features by listener request an aircheck of Gary Stevens from WMTM in Multree Georgia, a montage of Gary Stevens’ production samples, and finally Pams Series 18 as it sounded on WLS in Chicago.
Bill’s market scope for this week features Pittsburgh’s newest radio station, WZUM 1550 AM. After stunting for several weeks, this station is now playing classic soul from the 60’s and 70’s.
So far, there are no live DJ’s and they are playing lots of classic jingles.
Jeff’s featured station for this week starts off in Berlin, Germany. The station is called Radio Gold.
Then we travel back to the USA and head down to Birmingham Alabama and listen in to the Variety Hits format of WZNN FM.
