I have been enjoying the MeTV Music* format that is now on KXXP. The programming sounds very similar to what is on KBPS during the weekends. The only difference, of course, is that MeTV Music has very brief commercial interruptions, whereas KBPS has none.
I listened late yesterday evening, and it sounded as though MeTV Music used voice tracking with very limited breaks (perhaps, one out of every three to five songs was announced). I was left wondering, do all the dayparts sound the same, or do some time slots have more of a human presence (even if it is not live)?
* The official branding on the network’s logo is MeTV FM, but there is one affiliate that calls itself “MeTV Music” because its primary station is on AM.
Possibly, some type of diffraction phenomenon over the West Hills is my friend out in Hillsboro, with regards to receiving KXXP. The reception using a rooftop log-Yagi is relatively noise-free. I can hear the station on a Walkman style radio, but I have to carefully position the headphone cord, and the signal is noisy. The station can be heard on a car radio, but there is noticeable multipath, and there is another station that occasionally pops in.
