    I found out I could hear something reasonably close to my favorite music on KKOV Vancouver/Portland.

    It seems to be little more than a computer in a closet. The station is notorious for inserting commercials or public service announcements into the middle of songs or starting commercials at such a time that they end in the middle of Chas Henry’s newscast. Sometimes even the legal station ID gets left out.

    So I wonder if anyone has an explanation for this. A few minutes ago it was time for the news at the top of the hour, usually done by Chas Henry. All I heard was Obama’s voice, talking like he was being interviewed as he prepares to leave office. No introduction, no ending (a commercial just up and started at the appropriate time). It sounded like someone just dropped into the middle of whatever this was and then left it.



    "So I wonder if anyone has an explanation for this."

    Yeah. Welcome to satellite-fed commercial radio in the 2010s.
