    The dance station I'm referring to was 106.7. I believe 93.7 was a hip hop station. Now they're both spanish stations.

    I hear what you're saying though, but I do think OKC could support the format at least part time - especially considering isn't EDM among the most popular formats now, not just with the gay crowd. ..

    I agree with you. KJ-103 has it late nights on weekends as it is. If I was PD of a station, I would do a rhythmic CHR format, playing Top 40 with an urban/hip-hop lean during the day and then go EDM after 10PM.

    That would be my preference. I grew up in the Tulsa where 104.5 The Edge was all I listened to. At one point in time, I had all my presets in my car tuned to 104.5 so no one would change the station. I think that and the Chevy BT Events Center getting a makeover could bring in some great concerts we lost to the Cain's and Brady in Tulsa.

    Honestly I don't know if that's realistic. OKC can't even support a modern/indie rock station, so I don't see it supporting EDM. Attendance at venues with an electronic focus is kind of weak too, even when some of the world's biggest DJs are in town.

    I'd really love it if I was wrong though.

    That would be something to take up with Jan Jeffries.

    I just wish, as a top 40 rhythmic station they would play what is popular today instead of the most annoying overplayed songs from last decade.

    If I was the PD at 94.7, I would also run alt. rock on the station, with local personalities, not this satellite stuff, listen to Now 96.5 this weekend when I was in the city, great station, great sound and everything, I listen to it all the way down to River wind Casino and then it started to fade out, I wish they would put it on a another frequency.

    I agree. Now 96.5 is a great station, deserving of a stronger frequency. Why Tyler doesn't see this I don't understand. If they don't want to put it on a real frequency, they could at least put it on the 104.5 translator. It is twice as powerful as the 96.5 translator. In NW OKC, 96.5 is pretty static-filled sometimes and has bleed-in from Mix 96.5 in Tulsa.

    One thing I don't understand is why Jack and Ron are still on the air? I can't listen to them for more than a few minutes before I get sick of the terrible impressions, too tough trivia. I guess I don't share the same sense of humor that they do.

    Protest while doing something about the bad FM radio station situation in OKC by getting some music the other stations don't play and put up your own pirate radio station of at least a 100 watts. To escape FCC, only run it on weekends. If I'm right, the FCC doesn't work on weekends to investigate unlicensed stations unless a local station is being interfered with. So don't interfere with the locals. It's been awhile, but I've heard a FM pirate radio station before in OKC. It was comedy from Richard Pryor.

    I could pick it up this afternoon on my drive home. Usually the station is so full of static I can't listen for very long though. I wish they would move it closer to OKC. You can get it in Lawton and Elk City better than you can in OKC.

    That is so weird since doesn't Lawton already have its own Hip Hop station?

    Tyler is now simulcasting Now 96.5 on the 92.9 frequency. Personally I think 92.9 would be a better permanent frequency for the station than 96.5 being that 92.9 is slightly stronger and also doesn't suffer bleed-in from Mix 96.5 in Tulsa.

    Does anybody know what Tyler's long-term plans are for that frequency?

    The studio is in OKC but the transmitter is way out west of Anadarko, OK.

    They can't get a 100kW signal closer to the metro. If they did it would be too close to Magic 104.1 on the dial per FCC regulation. If they moved it to 103.3 it would be to close to KJ-103. To properly cover OKC, Russell Perry would either need to put it on a much weaker stick or buy out one of the existing frequencies which wouldn't be easy. I wonder how difficult it would be for them to set up a translator and simulcast. I am sure if it was doable it would have already been done.

  23. Default Re: Radio landscape in OKC

    Well, they do have a translator, at 92.1, but it's for their AM daytimer KRMP 1140; this allows them to run the format 24 hours.

    When they handed out FM allocations back at the Dawn of Time, OKC got just a handful: 92.5, 94.7, 96.1, 98.9, 100.5, 101.9, 102.7, 104.1. 107.7 came along in the 1970s. All the rest were move-ins from somewhere else or translators that sprang up recently.

  24. Default Re: Radio landscape in OKC

    Can they just move the transmitter to a different tower, say in the OKC tower farm?

    I see construction permits on some stations where they're switching towers or simulcasting or whatever, is this a possibility for them? I think it is weird for OKC to not have 103.5 coverage yet have a station based in OKC with that frequency; couldn't they simulcast the same frequency with a smaller transmitter IN OKC?

    I seriously doubt the target audience for that station resides anywhere west of El Reno. No offense to anybody, but western Oklahoma is hardly urban and hip-hop.

    No they could not without substantially reducing the power of the signal. Right now its a 100kW signal. Moving it to OKC would put it too close to 104.1 on the dial, another 100kW signal. There would be interference. There are no frequencies available in OKC that are 100kW so they would have to reduce the power. I am not certain but my guess is it would have to be something meager like 6kW before they could do it. If they did that though, the station would fade out west of Yukon and east of Choctaw. From a business perspective, I am not sure if better coverage over OKC would be preferable to the much larger coverage the station currently has.
