    How come that the station in question plays no legal ID now for almost a year and no action from the FCC? All what they have is a jingle at TOH which contains NO legal call letters. I don’t get it how can they get away with that.

    The reason is that no one has complained about it to the FCC. They (the FCC) does not have the manpower to monitor every station and in fact never has. They follow the complaints mostly and when time permits they sometimes do random monitoring. The personnel cutbacks at the federal level just don’t allow them to operate any other way.

    You need at least one listener in order to generate a complaint.

    I will 3rd this.

    A funny story…when I was working at Suburban Chicago WZSR in the mid-2000’s, we lost our hard-drive and had to improvise for a day or two. We encouraged employees to bring in their own copies of current music. Unfortunately, James Blunt did a rather profane version of “You’re Beautiful”, and you can guess the rest of the story.

    No complaint, no fine.
