    I live near Marysville and have never heard 96.7 played in any local establishments. Even when “The Breakfast Club” visited our local gas station (Mosier’s Market) in Raymond for a turkey giveaway 104.3 continued to play inside the store. 96.7 is spotty once you get north and west of Marysville.

    That is an amazing failure by WQTT’s sales department. It might be understandable if the store has their own in-house music, but playing Columbus-targeting Rewind is inexcusable.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if that played a role in replacing the Breakfast Club with B&T. Should have been obvious from the beginning that such a simulcast of a show nowhere near Marysville wasn’t going to work.

    Recorded in Ultra Stereo, the ultimately superior cousin to Normal Stereo!

    The Cleveland Indians and Blue Jackets radio networks have the capacity to be automated, I remember seeing that both utilize the same satellite distributor? Either way, has Ian Graham ever hosted surrounding the play-by-play between his stated 6pm-12am shift, or is it jock-less (doesn’t mean he wouldn’t be there per se on those nights)? TBH, even in a small market, a station offering live-assist 18 hours a day is exceptionally rare (and that’s if the station is still locally-owned, which is even more rare). WMOA and WJER still do it, but Marietta and Dover/New Philadelphia are such small markets and they both have a lot of sports PBP at night. WCSM in Lima has a mix of live during the day and the WWO-Local VTs in late evenings and overnights. WLKR-FM in Norwalk has local personalities 24/7 against playlists supplied by WWO, but it’s all VTed after 8pm. Even a sales-driven station like the WOBL/WDLW duopoly in Oberlin/Lorain is live-assist only from 6am to 6pm… weekdays AND weekends.

    Can’t say it’s never happened, but it would be the exception rather than the rule if Graham is live hosting pre and post game.

    Playing another station while the local station is doing a remote?  OMG!

    That said, was the Breakfast Club an overtly Delaware-centric show? They’re at least regional, unlike Bob and Tom.

    And as Chad said, in Richwood 104.3 is the strongest signal on the dial. It sounds like 96.7 has a similar directional pattern to the AM, so their radios might not pick it up very well. Still, playing another station in the background while one is having a remote is in poor taste.

    WCSMN is by no means a part of the Lima market, and they don’t claim to be. They do a reasonable job for Celina and St. Marys however, with some live and some satellite.

    Apparently WZLX, 107.5, Lima is also adding Rover.
