OK, I heard SOMETHING on 104.5 on Tuesday. It may have been what I heard Wednesday, which was “Way Loud”, referring to itself as “Christian Rock”. It seems that it must be related to Way FM but I’m not aware of Way Media having any other program sources. If it’s a matter of KXXP regaining its programing control, I can see how Way Media could have issues with them.
There was a poster on this board a few years ago who kept complaining that there is no active rock on the air in the Portland metro area anymore. Here it is. Hallelujah!
Way Loud is a subsidiary of Way FM. However, it may be that KXXP is the only terrestrial station carrying them now, since a station promo just said, “if you can’t stream us, then how are you hearing this?”
I listened to KXXP on my way back from Salem today. Good signal all of the way from Salem to Aloha. They were playing Oldies 60’s and beyond, a really good mix as “MyTV FM”. I have no idea if this permanent, but I hope so.
“1550 KBUD” made me chuckle. If people are going to create a hyper-niche radio format, they might as well have fun with it.
I cannot remember the name of the guy who kept complaining about KUFO and active rock being gone. What I do recall is that he posted some links to some political commentary videos that he had made, and he always appeared in a motorcycle jacket without a shirt underneath.
