Here's the scoop on WJIB-740......
It's the IOP music format (Intrumental-Oriented Pop) weekdays, 22 hours a
day, and the other two hours 7-9 AM it's Radio France Int'l News weekdays.
On weekends, most time is leased. ADD Radio Group (WRCA-1330) leases Sat 8
AM to 12 Midnight. Sunday, 7 AM to 11:30 AM it leased time directly between
WJIB and local churches. 11:30 AM, of course, is LTAR. Then ADD Radio Group
takes over on the 12 Noon to 12 Midnight spot.
WJTO, however is a bit different. Same music format sunrise to sunset 7 days
a week excepting for two things: 1) extensive local news coverage at 8 AM 12
Noon and 4 PM weekdays with 25 minutes of AP and WJTO-written local news.
and (2), two churches and public affairs Sunday 10 AM to 12 Noon. The
schedule rarely changes on WJTO.
Reason for sign-off at sunset (or usually 1 hour after sunset) is because
CKAC-730 out of Montreal is a real killer at night. SOME nights, WJTO can
be heard in Portland at night nicely with the nighttime authorization of 28
watts, but MOST nights a car radio will pick up an even mix of WJTO and CKAC
On the "Somgs from the Heart" listing in the Globe. I discontinued that 5
years ago. I'll have to get the Globe to replace that space with Radio France

<< When it was on, it was (from what I remember) partially
live, partially automated, using that hot automation
technology: VCR tapes. (A few nice VCRs and some tapes
of music and you can run a radio station! Why do you
need those $100,000 automation systems!) Since I was
never there for the show's run on WJIB, you would have
to ask Bob for the exact specifics.
Now, I think most of Saturdays on 740 are leased to ADD,
