    1640 is back on the air, as of this afternoon, with talk shows and SRN newsbreaks.

    So KTRO-FM has returned to Portland airwaves. Only this time it’s now on KDZR-AM.

    I don’t know if it’s just me, but the branding of this station, “Talk 1640” seems rather generic and uninspired. Guess it’s just another symptom of the unimaginative nature of corporate radio these days.

    620 has good coverage that way. I used to make the slog drive often and could catch 620 all the way into Seattle. Coupla rough spots in there, but it’s all bonus coverage, so no worries.

    Back in the 1960’s, when I was at McChord AFB in Tacoma, I got 620 KGW all day up there. Those were the days. You could hear them with no interference all the way up to Olympia while driving north. But, like most others, I was listening mostly to KJR and KOL while there. Had to keep up with what was going on at the Spanish Castle.

    Jimbo: When were you at McChord? I was in the 1905 Comm Sq there in 68 and 69.

    The facebook page has a funny post from someone in Keizer claiming to “love” it. Click on her name to see that she is a religious nut working for…Salem Media Group.

    What a shame. Radio just continues to get worse.

    I wonder whether the call letters for 1640 will be changed to KTRO? The callsign is available.

    Dammit! I posted this on the wrong thread again. But TRN sucks ass!! But 620 ain’t what it uses to be. And 750 goes north of Olympia!
