As of today,Sunday, Sept. 12th Local AMer WDEA-1370 has been off the air
24 days.
Talked to a staff member at Cumulus in Brewer on Friday, and she says
they are now in the process of replacing the AM Transmitter. They were
unable to obtain replacement parts for the two 50-year old main and
"back-up" transmitters. She was unwilling to speculate much further on
whether they were getting a new or used transmitter. In her words they
hope to be back on "soon".

Now if any of Cumulus' 3 Bangor-area FMs went on the fritz, how long do
you think they would have been off the air??

I feel sorry for morning man Rick Foster who has been without a job for
over three weeks now.

And there have been rumblings of discontent from listeners as far away
as NovaScotia, as well as just a few Red Sox fans/advertisers!!.. 

What a shame this station has been neglected over the past few years.
