    I never really heard of Long Island having a large Indian population.

    There are large ethnic populations of all kinds on Long Island the closer you get to New York City. A lot of people who've never been there or aren't from this part of the country have a mental image of it as white, wealthy, suburban -- The Hamptons, in other words. But Long Island is also places like Long Island City and Syosset. Not to mention the fact that Brooklyn and Queens are technically part of Long Island. So from the Hamptons east, Long Island is largely homogeneous, the rest of the Island is closer to New York City than you might think in terms of diversity. Surely someone from New Jersey -- a state with a totally different stereotype attached to it -- would know that!

    A very real indication of the changes in "near in" Long Island (in fact, all the way out beyond the Nassau / Suffolk County line) is the gradual decline and failure of 92.7 as am alternative / rock station. The texture of the coverage area went from the stereotypical suburban white working and middle class to one that ranges from Russian to Colombian to Indian. A glance at the now-8-year-old Census data and the ACS annual survey data shows one of the most diverse populations of any place in the US... just break out Queens, Brooklyn and Nassau and be amazed.

    Just as an example, look at the national origin for Queens at https://statisticalatlas.com/county-...ational-Origin

    Or Nassau County: https://statisticalatlas.com/county/...ational-Origin

    Sure, there are still big estates with mansions on West Shore Drive, but they are vastly outnumbered by those who live in Brighton Beach or Jackson Heights and other nationality based neighborhoods.

    Well, that explains their call sign switch from WLIE to WBWD (BollyWooD) last month.

    On the other hand, the Long Island stations I receive here in Meriden -- WPPB, WLNG, WEHM, WALK -- reflect a completely different Long Island. In fact, the Radio-Locator listing of signals received in Manorville (home of AAA WEHM) shows zero ethnic FMs at all and only three Spanish Christians (one a drop-in from across the Sound in Connecticut) on AM!

    Interesting nesting: Long Island City (LIC) is part of Queens, which is part of Long Island.

    Trivia question: Where was the Battle of Long Island fought?
    Plugged into the electric radio
