KFRC, Here We Go Again

You remember KFRC. It is that station roaming the radio dial looking for a home. Well, it has found a new home again at 1550 on the AM dial.

Now KYOU (KYCY) is without a home. For those of you at home keeping score, KYOU was the “podcasts” station at 1550.

KFRC is not coming back with Dave Sholin, Celeste Perry, and the other on-air personalities. Nope, this time it will be canned programming. One of the reasons for listening to KFRC over the years was the local programming and personalities. Local news updates are provided by KCBS with music programming from True Oldies Channel, which claims to have an extensive play list.

You probably cannot even receive the weak signal station here in the South Bay. They have been streaming the classic hits format at and on KFRC-HD2 (106.9-2 FM) and will continue to do so.

With advertising dollars moving to the Internet and with the economic downturn CBS Radio may feel an oldies format will give them a rating that is a smidgen higher than the podcasts format.

Now, go get that old cat’s whisker radio out…
