SYRACUSE -- There's a date for one more local station to flip on the "All-Christmas" switch. Classic FM (WCNY-FM) will be offering wall-to-wall holiday jazz music on its HD-3 subchannel starting next Wednesday, November 21.
SYRACUSE -- Starting tomorrow at noon, owners of HDRadio tuners will be able to tune in holiday-themed jazz anytime, night or day. Classic FM (WCNY) is offering "The Sounds of Christmas Jazz" non-stop through Christmas Day on its HD3 stations in Syracuse, Utica and Watertown.
SYRACUSE -- Popular announcer Dusty Rhodes will be back on the Syracuse airwaves in May, hosting a four-part series entitled Syracuse Radio in the Fifties on WCNY-HD2. Installments of the program are scheduled to air on Sunday afternoons, starting May 2.
SYRACUSE -- WCNY has hired Susan Arbetter, the former host of public TV's New York Now, as part of a "major expansion" of news and public affairs programming offered on WCNY television and radio, as well as the stations' website.
The year is 1968. You're in charge of lining up the entertainment for your station's Christmas party. Imagine booking the Count Basie Orchestra -- and then getting Tony Bennett to stop by for an impromptu performance. Impossible? Not for Classic FM's Dick Carr!
