Nearly a month ago, we told you how WBLH/Black River (92.7FM) was LMA'ed from Randy Michaels' Radioactive, LLC to a company called Intrepid Broadcasting. At that time, it was just a construction permit, but now we're hearing that the station seems to be stunting with some rather obscure music selections.
We got an e-mail from Craig Thayer of Texas, who tells us he was recently in the area visiting family. He and his wife landed on WBLH by chance while driving around. Craig writes:
The format was hilarious—an eclectic montage of old TV show theme songs, 30s big band, 60s, and ??? On the way back from Alex Bay we tuned in again to see what else WBLH had in store. It turns out they were playing the same material, but this time we got to listen to the whole tape loop. It was crazy enough to keep us listening through the whole loop. What a hoot! I wish there were more radio stations out there that would be bold enough to not be carbon copies of every other station on the dial.
We were sorry when we had to tell Craig this mix will more than likely be history before his next visit to New York, but we did promise we'd try to help him out. He's wondering if anyone out there may have documented the list of songs WBLH is playing in that loop. He says it's about an hour long.
Here at CNYRadio.com HQ, we're a bit too far out of range to get WBLH, so we're hoping for some help from those of you who can hear the station. Complete or partial lists would be appreciated, by posting a comment below or by e-mailing us at cnyradio (at) cnyradio.com. Try to include the date and time if you can... so if there's a song you don't recognize, maybe someone else can help fill in the blanks. Let us know if you want to remain anonymous or if it's OK to thank you by name.
For our own curiosity, if anyone wants to send aircheck clips, we'd be interested in hearing them -- and possibly posting one or two. We'd be most interested in the ID and any imaging liners, with 5-10 seconds of programming on either side. While you're at it, the guys over at Toppy would probably appreciate an ID aircheck too.
