Listening to WKLH/Milwaukee....

70° - sunny at 11:37am

During the couple hours I was compiling and writing my post below about the NAB and R&R Conventions, I was listening to WKLH/Milwaukee on the 'net.

Once again I found myself very caught up in 'KLH's programming, imaging and execution.

Started this morning with "The Best of Dave & Carole" (the station's weekday AM drive programming). A Saturday Morning show - with prior week show highlights.

These "best of" bits accompanied by lots of fresh tracks by the Dave & Carole together talking about whats happening in the Milwaukee area throughout the weekend.

All done conversation style like the weekday morning show - not a quick calendar run-down. Blended well with the best-of tracks.

This was followed at 10am central by 'KLH's Marilyn Mee....starting her time coming out of Ringo Starr's "It Don't Come Easy" to lament about the Brewer's 6-3 loss to San Diego last night - putting an end to hopes for post-season play. Live and so local.

WKLH also soliciting listener votes (with an excellent promo) for the "Greatest Guitar Solos of Classic Rock" - to be featured on air October 12th. Workforce members eligible to vote on the 'KLH website.

More listener-generated content; making them part of the programming!

Great radio stations are great inspiration for any programmer. You know one when you hear one - and WKLH is part of that club!
