KTRB/860 Move To Bay Area: The Saga Continues

Pappas Radio has submitted a minor engineering amendment to their proposed move of 50,000-watt KTRB/860 from Modesto to San Francisco. At the same time, they have submitted a corresponding engineering change on their "replacement" station in Modesto, 5000-watt KPMP/840.

Although the applications were just filed on Friday (May 20; listed as received by the FCC on May 25), if the changes were requested by the FCC, this could mean that the process may be reaching its late stages, and the move could be getting closer on the horizon.

As the Pappas family has been a significant contributor to the Republican Party over the past few years, I'd venture a guess that the application might have a pretty good chance to be fast-tracked, and we'll have a new news/talk station blanketing the Bay Area soon.

What a pleasant surprise to hear Moby Grape and "Embryonic Journey" by Jefferson Airplane this morning on my way to work!

Republican talk radio? Acid Rock? Do I sense a disconnect? Sure is pleasant while it lasts.

Three cheers to a radion station that plays music from the 60's and early 70's when San Francisco was the place to be. I'm spreading the word. Love and Peace.
