    Newer VWs have an oil change interval of 12 months or 10,000 miles. They require a specific Castrol long-life synthetic motor oil approved by VW. New Toyota RAV4s require the use of 0W-16 motor oil. Not 0W-15 or 0W-20. 0W-16.

    I always figure that any more than 5 years out of a car battery is a bonus.

    Those wacky German car engineers. My VW Touareg’s battery was under the driver’s seat. You had to unbolt the seat to get to the battery. The Touareg V10 TDI had a second battery under the cargo floor.

    Is it an AGM battery? They can be expensive. I think (but am not positive) that a battery located anywhere inside the vehicle, including in the trunk, has to be completely sealed against releasing toxic fumes.

    My concern is in a very close election, the 30%-35% of the country that actually believes he is the chosen one will get very riled up. They’ll claim voter fraud, rigged voting machines, and whatever else they can use to delegitimize the outcome. Trump will stoke that fire to the bitter end. He will claim a coup is taking place. It could get ugly and chosen one will like it that way.

    Actually physically getting him out of the WH might be the easy part.

    There’s a forum for bassists appropriately named talkbass.com. It’s a VERY active board. They absolutely forbid any discussion related to politics, religion, or guns. I and many others love that forum precisely because those topics are forbidden.

    There’s a now cult favorite movie from 2002 called Kung Pow: Enter The Fist. The main character is referred to as Chosen One. Someone really needs to photoshop Trump’s face into Chosen One’s image from the movie. Video would be even better.

    Chosen One is mad at Denmark!

    But he’s the chosen one! He said so himself today!

    I watched They Live over the weekend. So relevant today.

    KSCR still doesn’t seem to have any local ads. Everything is for stuff like how to settle your debt to the IRS and home air purifiers. No local connection at all.

    Apparently there was a nationwide EAS test yesterday (Aug. 7th). An east coast acquaintance says it ran ok on FM stations in his area, but not on any AM stations that he sampled. ?

    Agreed on Classic Soft Rock for KSCR.

    It seems like Cumulus would want to change the call letters or formats around. KUJZ should be KSCR The Score. KSCR should be something else. KVLY seems to be available. “The Valley: 98.1 KVLY”.

    KUJZ sounds like a university station with a jazz format. Ha.

    Made a point of listening to KSCR in the car today. They’ve branded it “The Valley 98.1”. Also it still has silent gaps where you’d expect a liner or sweeper or whatever they’re called.

    KSCR bills itself as “All Your Favorite Hits”. I don’t know the exact name for the format but basically it’s easy listening for adults. It doesn’t reach very far and certainly wouldn’t get to Salem except by accident.

    KORE being Fox Sports has possibly cannibalized listeners from KUJZ. That and all the transmitter problems the Cumulus cluster has experienced this year hasn’t helped Cumulus at all. KZEL was at very reduced power for several months.

    I wonder how KKNX is doing now that they’re on 105.1. Also wonder where KRVM-FM would rank.

    Cumulus also broadcasts Ducks Football on KZEL.

    I wonder if KORE has had a negative impact on KUJZ.

    Anyone remember the John Carpenter movie “They Live”?

    A drifter discovers a pair of sunglasses that allow him to wake up to the fact that aliens have taken over the Earth.
