Thread: WPLJ says farewell New York. Any thoughts on final day/shows?

    WPLJ says farewell New York. Any thoughts on final day/shows?

    Was interested in getting radio discussions users opinions on the last Todd and Jayde show and race taylors send off. I got a chance to listen to most of the last days shows and I think it was a good send off as good as WRKS in 2012 in my opinion. Also Bill Ayers last show didn’t get a chance to hear it but assume it was good. I also think they could have fit better selection of songs on the last day but that is what it is. Also on the tunein app wplj apparently just disappeared on my app and others who had the station saved in their favourites on tunein wplj either deleted their page or tunein got rid of it. Did anyone else notice wplj just being gone on their tunein app after the station went to k love? Kind of sad because they had show replays and some on demand content on their tunein page so that is too bad.

    I listened to a good bit of the reunion day, as well as listening in for the last 2 hours up until K-Love broke the silence.

    I think Race did a great job with the send-off and the reunion day. I hope he resurfaces somewhere in NY.

    The song choices were... interesting, but management really did let the DJs do whatever they wanted with the send off. It was also nice to hear the remaining airstaff get the opportunity to say goodbye.

    I didn't listen to Todd & Jayde's final show, but I did listen to when Todd came in during Scott Shannon's portion of the reunion. He seemed like he could have cared less, and to me it sounded a little uncomfortable between him, Scott, and a few other people on at the time (I noticed that Patty was notably absent during Todd's appearance, though I'm not going to speculate or read into that further. It was, if anything, funny to hear Scott, Patty, and the rest of the crew plugging CBS-FM.

    It was also nice to hear the rock jocks back on PLJ. Of course, the majority of them are now at Q104.3, but it was nice to hear them reflect on the rock-era.

    Overall, the send off/sign off was well done.

    Did you happen to catch Bill Ayers last show? I think he did the community access type show on weekends.

    I think that the community access show are mandatory to do at least once a week on radio still? I could be wrong though.

    All the WPLJ listeners need to petition the FCC Against The Misuse of Commercial FM Broadcast space. K Love is an Educational broadcaster. That should be broadcasting on the non commercial portion of the band from 88 to 91 MHz. 95.5 is designated as Commercial broadcasting space.

    "Community Access" is not an FCC accepted definition. Stations are required to include some programming that addresses community issues and needs, but this can be a national program which deals with a relevant subject at the local level.

    You will find what EMF has promised in the WPLJ online public file at the FCC website.

    Non-commercial use of a commercial channel is perfectly legal. There are many such stations on the commercial portion of the FM band.

    PLenty of non-comms on the commercial channels, including major NPR affiliates like WFIU, Bloomington, Indiana. All you have to do is notify the FCC, then if . it's ever returned to commercial operation, notify them again.

    I know of many non-commercial radio stations, that broadcast in the commercial band. (Especially in Alabama!) Now if they were broadcasting in the wrong place, don't you think the FCC would've took action already?
