Radio Engineer Porn

WLW-AM in Cincinnati is a one-of-a-kind radio station for a lot of reasons. It still dominates the ratings in Cincinnati and its entire programming lineup is live and locally produced. The station was acquired by Jacor in 1992, 4 years before the feeding orgy in 1996. Jacor was merged into Clear Channel, which is now iHeart. People at iHeart have been smart enough to keep their hands off the station, other than firing the program director a few years ago. If Cumulus owned this station, what you see in this video would have been sold for $10 for the scrap metal.

Grab a bowl of popcorn and enjoy, even if you don’t know a modulator from an amplifier, or RF from FM… This is the radio equivalent of those monster truck videos working in an outdoor quarry

    awesome video. They use to build some heavy-duty _ _ _ _ here in the United States back in the day. Private industry built a lot of stuff. Not so much anymore. The Gov’t builds a heavy duty storage data center in the Utah mountains, is about all that is going on now. Crap.

    To bad WLW stream is that iHeartSataan flash crap . I couldn’t get VLC to read that stream.

    thanks for the heads up on the video Art !

      Speaking if iHeart… I was in Canada last week and the app worked fine on my phone. I was surprised they did not block it outside the US. In past years, when I accessed stations such as WABC, I was blocked from listening overseas despite being a registered user at the stations site.

      Many CBC streams are blocked for US IP addresses.

      The issue is royalties and the monopoly by geography that the governments grant to the content owners.

    In the latest ratings, WLW has a 13.0 share – the #2 station is an 8 share and plays Country music on FM

    Clear Channel seemed to recognize when they partnered with XM satellite radio about a decade ago. Their deal was for XM to carry several Clear Channel stations and WLW AM was among them. In addition to its unique programming, its low frequency and high power clear channel made it a long time favorite of interstate truckers at night.
