We thoroughly your new format. We are, however, puzzled by the fact that your previous talk format has been on for the past two days. Can anyone in authority enlighten us???

The network that provides us with “The Music Of Your Life” experienced a computer virus that disrupted their music servers, causing enormous gaps of dead airs. Sometimes minutes at a time. And, in other instances, several hours at a time. Unfortunately, the network had to go dark earlier this week to completely rebuild from scratch the entire operation, which left their entire network of stations around the country, WTRC-AM included, without music. They went back online late this afternoon and we are hopeful that they have resolved this issue once and for all. Frustrating, we know. But we thank you for listening and hanging in there!

We enjoy the new programming but are puzzled as to why the past two days have reverted to talk radio. Can anyone in authority answer the why talk again?

Really enjoy the agriculture programming 11-12AM and 3-4PM. Makes us aware how sensitive the food supply is to economic and environmental factors. Also is a nice break from main stream news headlines.

Hello, I’ve, been in radio for over 30 years and I’m ashamed to say there’s not much on through most of the spectrum from market to market and city to city. I know exactly what they’re programming everywhere. I find it horrible what we’ve allowed the Wallstreet consolidation bean counter crowd to do to our radio industry and it’s offerings. There’s no reason to have three or more outlets in a market playing essentially the same “no music” formats on the main channel and HD channels and call them different formats. Forget large corporate radio. All that spectrum and no creativity.Thank you local radio 1340. You’ve come to the rescue. Thanks for your Music of Your Life MOR presentation. It’s right on target! Keep up the good work.
