Let's see, Ed from Lexington called station manager Roger Duvall. Karen emailed from London, Kentucky. Another Karen posted on Facebook, as did Terry. Meanwhile Chad tweeted about it. And this all happened Saturday evening.
The issue was a problem that put very accurate Coordinated Universal Time on the air Sat at 6:00 and for most of an hour, instead of A Prairie Home Companion. It was caused by a computer playlist error that went unnoticed. I would recommend you read my detailed post on the station’s Facebook timeline if you’re interested in more details.
Thanks to all who made efforts to contact us about this. In addition to using the social media to reach us, I invite you to become a member of a network of troubleshooters across the region. If you contact me, I'll send a cell phone number you can call, trusting you’ll use it only for good, not evil.
On a more positive note, we had a call from Classic 102.1 listener Lee, with a compliment for our own Michael Carter, “I have only heard one classical music show on the radio better than his and it only lasted for about two years before the person doing it ran out of the ability to do better than Michael. And Michael just keeps it up and keeps it up and keeps it up and it is wonderful.”
Lee also had some suggestions regarding the technical quality of the signal on WKYL which are certainly appreciated.
