That's funny: Ben Fong-Torres reported that Master Bates was fired a couple days after Rosalie's last show.

In her farewell "Acoustic Sunrise" this morning, Rosalie did shout-outs to her former KFOG colleagues. She said Dave Morey is on a station in Palm Springs ( KWIR/Palm Springs http://bit.ly/KWIRFM ) which was news to me. Per Dred Scott on FB, Dave's on that station "whenever he feels like it."

Also news to me: on Dave's Michigan station ( Wxtf-Lp 97.9 Harrisville www.979 harrisville ), there's a show called "Barry's Dynamite Show" and it turns out Barry is Rosalie's husband. Also, John Grappone is still doing weekends on KINK in Portland.

I've listened to Dave's new station a few times, but his broadcast schedule is pretty much nonexistent. I check in to see if he's on once or twice a week, and might get lucky once a month. As on WTF, he rarely (never) opens the mic, and sticks more to old jazz and r&b with a healthy helping of vintage commercials and soundbites. It's definitely not 10@10 redux.

(Btw, Dave departed Michigan nearly two years ago for the warmer climes of Palm Springs; I guess nearly 30 years in CA (even the Bay area's moderate climate) had taken away his resistance to Michigan winters. The station was able to relocate to the basement of another of its regular volunteers and continues broadcasting on a pretty steady 7-day schedule, although a number of volunteer jocks left at the time the station moved.)

I know less of Barry's Dynamite Show, simply because it airs on Saturdays when I'm usually not in front of a computer. But Barry's a good guy and has exemplary taste in music (i.e. as guys of a certain age who worked in the music biz often do) so I expect it's quite entertaining.
Let's get right to it.

60's Watch - The Bone played "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" Sunday afternoon.  They probably don't go back to '65 too often, but it does happen.

KUFX played The Animal's House of the Rising Sun (1964) this morning.

KCSM is already running promos for their Autumn Pledge Drive -- which is 3 weeks away (begins Labor Day wknd). Guess they were spooked by the shortfalls they had during the last 2 drives.

August ratings out today. The now officially "alternative" KFOG up a tick (from 1.2 to 1.4), but Live, er I mean Alt 105.3, makes a bigger jump, from 1.5 to 2.1

Isn't there a change in ownership/license?

You're thinking of the TV station. I'm talking about KCSM-FM, aka "Jazz 91"

The TV station (KPJK) is interesting, with a lot of Native American programming.  I recently read "There, There", a debut novel by Native American author Tommy Orange.  It's set in Oakland and relates stories of "urban" Natives.  Not a happy novel, but very good.  It's well worth checking out.
