He probably doesn't know what a daytimer is, or about
nighttime AM signal propagation. He appears to believe
that WILD is on the air at night, rebroadcasting WBAL.
I have actually encountered many other people over the
years who also didn't know and just assumed that WILD
was rebroadcasting WBAL at night, although it made no
sense that a station that then had an urban format in
the daytime would do that at night.
A few years ago, a wanna-be DJ told me that he was
"going to apply for a nighttime show at WILD, when
they're just rebroadcasting this news station from
Baltimore". I broke the news to him that wouldn't
be possible, but I don't know if he understood why.
