For anyone who is interested, I have recorded/will be recording the majority of CISL programming this week. Unscoped, and in AM quality, but preserved nonetheless!
Sir, that is fantastic news. How may we access your recordings?
AM 1410 should revert back to oldies, or AM730 could become LG73 again and play the music that CISL abandoned.Make it happen,Corus.Traffic is a waste of a frequency.
1410 should stay sports….CISL music will be missed.
Russ, feel free to email me at [email protected]. Would love to feature some of them here on PSR if someone has the time to scope them down.
HUGE CONGRATS Art, well deserved!
1410 should stay sports? It is currently the bottom rated station in the city, so where’s the logic in that?
1410 needs to shut down. It garbage. I would also like to see it play the music 650 does now. Maybe someone with a brain will actually do it.
We are sooooo going to miss CISL!! Especially Red Robinson on Sunday afternoons! Congratulations Art! Please someone start up another oldies station!
KBAI 930AM has switched from liberal talk to ’70s-heavy oldies. Haven’t heard DJ chatter so a lot of it is likely automated. Its daytime signal from Bellingham is okay, at least over here in Victoria. Nighttime? Take your chances.
Oh yeah, very happy to hear Art continues with the new format. Red always made him part of the show and I appreciated their banter.
1410…,,,,50000 watts of classic CISL listening, with Hollywood Stu at the helm!
If you missed the sign off of CISL. I got the full aircheck up
