    Geez, Murphy, are you guys psychic?! Since I'm in this "biz" I totally plan on checking out the stations along the AT. I was just thinking the other day that one of the things I would have to do was to start going through the Broadcaster's Yearbook (an industry mag) and make my list. I was putting this preparation right up there with planning mail drops and z-days...and now here you've gone and done it for me.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Thanks for that file Troll. I hiked without a radio until Waynesboro and then bought one on a whim at Radio Shack. I enjoyed listening to it in my tent on many nights before going to sleep.

    I have particularly fond memories of listening to the radio in the northernmost states. One particular FM station I tuned into regularly (don't know it's call-sign) played half or one hour programs late at night featuring the recording history of various artists such as Jimmy Jones (Handy Man), Bob Seger and other artists of the 60's 70s and 80s era. Nothing like laying in your tent next to Rainbow Lake listening to the oldies. Hopefully I can find this station again broadcasting on the net.

    Default a few comments

    First, very thorough and impressive job.

    As a radio junkie, especially public radio, let me suggest a few revisions.

    WETH no longer plays any classical. Format is public radio. FYI, it's a clone of WETA, Wash, DC.

    WITF format is classical/public radio.

    WJAZ format is better stated as jazz/classical. Same with WRTY, they are clones.

    If you like good, authentic bluegrass, may I highly recommend WBRF at 98.1 FM out of Galax VA. They play bluegrass at night, and I was able to pick up a decent signal in my tent from about Whitetop to somewhere between Bland and Pearisburg. They play country--mostly classic country--in the daytime.

    WBRF is one of those rare stations that has stayed true to its roots and so far has refused to be Clear Channeled out of existence.

    I'll keep this in mind when I'm in VA. I love bluegrass music, but have been bummed out ever since WAMU in DC changed their venue. I used to download the "Into The Blue" programs from the internet, but that stopped because of the RIAA copyright BS, even though the musicians gave their permission for the programs to be distributed.

    I will not support either through concerts participation or CD purchase any musician that is an RIAA member. Unfortunately, that includes most of them.

    Wow, trying to open that .zip file whacked my computer. It downloaded OK and seemed to extract but when it tried to open in WordPad it was blicking and buzzing.

    Any ideas? I haven't had any problems before...

    It won't help you much on a thru-hike, but if you want a good 24/7 Bluegrass station check out Sirius Satellite Radio. You can get a free 3-day internet trial at www.sirius.com and if you like it can either subscribe using an internet delivery or get the proprietary radio (some as little as $30 after rebates) for home or auto listening. If you do the latter you would get the internet delivery thrown in for free. Sirius has about 150 stations now including about 70 commercial-free music channels with myriad genres including some you probably never thought of but they do exist. The bluegrass channel is one of the reasons I subscribed.

    They do have a portable, wearable radio called the Stiletto now which is lightweight/compact, and has MP3 capabilities too. But IMHO it would only be of value to a dayhiker. Battery life isn't long enough for a long distance backpacker. I'm betting they will have one that is tho, sooner rather than later.

    First, you need WinZip to get at the contents of the .zip file. Assuming you did that, it will reveal a .doc file, which is a Microsoft Word format. This radio file is highly formatted, so I have to wonder if WordPad can handle it. If you have a recent version of MS Word, it should open in that.

    If that doesn't work give me a yell and I'll try to make a PDF for you. Try being the operative word here.

    Sly, I went ahead and made the PDF file. Took over an hour because of the MS Word formatting. But the resulting PDF file is "only" 743KB. Even with dial-up this could be do-able.

    If you want it, e-mail me at skyline (at) shentel (dot) net and I'll reply from my business account which starts with "service." (Business account has broadband, personal account uses dial-up.)

    WNCW is a good one. Can listen here, although you may want to wait until this song gets over!

    FYI, WETH, Hagerstown, MD has changed its format (again). It is now all classical.
