WLIB is running black gospel, mostly from a satellite service. That's
been consistent pretty much since the progressive talk moved to WWRL a
year or so ago.
I believe the Caribbean programming on WSNR is running only on the
weekends, with Russian and Jewish programming the rest of the time.
There's quite a bit of Caribbean on WPAT(AM) as well.
A lot of the leased-time signals in NYC are in transition - the
ill-fated 540 on Long Island is running Jewish programming for one month
only, in between longer-term leases, the Russian that was displaced from
"87.7" still hasn't found a permanent home, and I heard a fair amount of
"filler" music on several of Liu's signals, such as 930 and 1430, last
time I was down there.
