Al Kaprelian is what made WNDS, and what broadcasting SHOULD be, UNIQUE in
each station's market. Too bad we are now dominated by satellite-sameness.>>
I agree to a certain extent. WNDS was unique in it's specific programming..
They hooked the Trekkies... and Hawaii 5 'O fans alike.
What was cool was that Al was the most unique. Yes, this may have been his
first gig, and I really don't know whether his fans laughed with him or at him.
But his aura likely brought ratings to a station that could afford to take a
chance with a personality like him.
I doubt his act would work at a larger station, so I'd expect to see some
changes in Al if he wants to stay in television meteorology.
Yes.. Satellite-sameness is a sad situation... and I think you'll see radio
get hit the hardest by it (as if it hasn't already). My concern is with what
will happen when the new Digital Satellite Radio ( DARS ?? ) hits everybody's
homes and automobiles 5-10 years from now. How will the smaller markets handle
