Sunday Night Odds & Sods

39° - rain at 5:53pm

A great plan but a sleepless night: last night was the Christmas Party for my wife's employer; and the dinner/party included rooms for the night in the hotel/event center.

But with a significant freezing rain/sleet fall it meant they'd be clearing the nearby roads and event center parking lot during the course of the night. Backup signal beeps. Lots of scraping. Barely any sleep; caught up on snooze time this morning.

WCSX/Detroit. In the process of counting down the top 94 albums of all time. The station has a great spread on their website featuring Top 10 lists from station staff. See here.

Ringing In The New Year. KCFX/Kansas City will be counting down the 1001 Greatest Classic Rock Songs of All Time. The station is currently soliciting listener suggestions for the list - see here.

KLPX/Tucson is getting ready to present the Top 25 albums of all time - as voted by listeners. Its set up very user-friendly on the web with a drop down menu of well-known albums the listeners can choose from. See here.

KRFX/Denver in the middle of Classic Rock A to Z. Production wiz Roger King always does a great job imaging Fox's A to Z. Listen online here.

CDs For The Troops. Covered a similar promotion here back in August. Now - in time for the holidays, WLAV/Grand Rapids is collecting music CDs - both new and "gently used" - from listeners - for our troops overseas. A great promotion. Check it out here.

My brother.
Daytime job he's a graphic artist for a Chicago-based toy company. At night he programs his own online TV station. Sort of. Check out "WTV" here. WTV short for "Willinois Television". All for fun.

Jeff and family reside near the IL/WI border north of Chicago; thus "Willinois".
Great use of Flash video sequencing; perhaps an idea for a radio station website!
