This is interesting. Revisiting what I wrote in my earlier thread about stations in Spokane:
Spokane’s River 96.9 – If it were possible for 94/7 in Portland to get any softer and slower, it would probably sound a lot like this station. Usually came in with a lot of static.
Some of the other stations have a very similar presentation with harder-edged music, and 96.9 had an even more laid back presentation than the mainstream AC station. Looking up the specs, their signal is also much weaker than the other Spokane FMs, giving it a huge disadvantage.
