    I don't think BPI ever was part of Broadcast Architecture. BPI's business was automated formats, first on reel, and then with the CD jukebox UDS system before they started selling dayparts via satellite. BPI used to call on me to pitch stuff back in the day.

    And interestingly Steely Dan was also played on both KMET and KTWV at some point. But then again this was when 94.7 was transitioning from AOR to NAC at the time.

    Steely Dan's sound makes perfect sense on this format, IMO.

    Steely Dan, Rickie Lee Jones, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison and Paul Simon are all artists that got play on both KMET and KTWV.

    BPI was Seattle owned, then sold to Broadcast Electronics, which -- after a few years -- then sold it to Jones. Then it was sold again of course.

    A Canadian radio station was the last known station to borrow KTWV's branding until 2011. And this Canadian Radio station even used the exact format as KTWV during their Smooth Jazz era until 2011. Currently 94.7 Canada is a country music outlet as Wikipedia is referencing too.

    As David noted Broadcast architecture was the one that licensed and franchised the Wave Brand to other radio stations outside of Los Angeles.
