    Just curious, how can you tell it's a local list?

    Exactly, and even if they were using Jack, as they do in Dallas, it's not delivered from a satellite. The Jack format is custom designed for each market. There is no satellite feed. It's all locally assembled in each studio.

    It does not match the list of comparable '82 to '92 core songs on any other CBS station on BDS. That means it is a custom list for that market.

    And as has been said, CBS does not do things that way.

    The playlist and blend is custom in the Top 50 markets, with a commensurate fee. In the under-50 market size, it's delivered pre-programmed.

    I THINK the Canadian distributor maintains a Satellite, I might be wrong on that one. I can confirm Jack-FM is Dial Global Local however.
    They might've had a satellite when the format first rolled out nationwide.

    The US owner of the Jack intellectual content is Sparknet with offices in LA and Nashville. The Canadian company has nothing to do anymore with the US distribution. George Burns, the long-time programmer and consultant, is one of the Sparknet managers.

    Dial Global was folded into Westwood One and Sparknet's Jack is distributed by them to run locally from workparts in markets outside the top 50.

    Jack's license agreement is markets above 51 run it via their consulting and jockless for one year.....after that, they can go with live DJs and local promotion but still use Sparknet's consulting, etc..

    Below Market 50, its sat only......I talked with them about running it on my AM...they liked it since it went somewhat with the "Whenever, whatever we want to play".....JACK FM on AM?? HMMM But Im doing it on my own with a wider music selection...and Jeff Davis as the voice...

    No satellite. Local work parts, as pointed out in post #27. One of the few formats offered that way. Maybe the only one.

    I miss 106-9 The Zone. It went off the air in 2011. And you're right, other than 94-5 The Buzz, there just isn't anything for Gen X'ers to get into.
