The first new am radio signal in Iï¿½m thinkinï¿½ 40 years has come to town. according to IDAHORADIONEWS.COM. 890 AM, KDJQ plays ï¿½Vintage Rock and Soul,ï¿½ with a focus on 50 and 60s R&B and rock hits. If the comments on IDAHORADIONEWS.COM are any indication the station is playing some songs that we haven't heard for a while. Cool.
While I am on the subject of radio. Remember when radio was fun, local, hell! even live? Now, well if you think you are hearing a ï¿½liveï¿½ dj and it is after 10 am, call-No one will answer? Try the web, no response ï¿½till the morning. ï¿½IMï¿½ Yeah, right. OK, Caves and Prater are live at 4:00, but almost always that DJ is long gone by the time heï¿½s ï¿½on the airï¿½.
Sometimes they are not even in town!!! A Wall Street Journal article exposed a California based dj that was ï¿½Liveï¿½ in Boise and Salem. BEAM ME to BOISE, Scotty. No Scotty, I meant Salem>>>.
USA Today wrote yesterday (5/12/05) that radio listening is off by 9%. Wonder why the big radio companies haven't blamed illegal downloads, like RIAA has? Blame the same old songs, nothing local and certainly no fun. Maybe KDJQ will be different.
