Hot FM

A bit of a mystery sticker here from Germany's Hot FM.  A Google search for "Mein Radio lebt!" brought up the website address which now redirects to "Radio Galaxy".  The three letter abbreviations seem to match some cities in Bavaria's Upper Franconia region.


Does anyone know anything else about this station?

Washington, DC's WWDC call letters existed on 1260 AM from 1950 until 1999.  For many of those years they carried a full-service MOR format and were known as being the first American radio station to play a Beatles song--"I Want to Hold Your Hand" in December, 1963.  A flip to Top-40 occurred in 1977 and Adult Contemporary took over in 1980.  Soon after they started simulcasting Howard Stern's WWDC-FM morning show with separate programming in other dayparts.  AM 1260 is currently News/Talk WWRC "The Answer".

Minster Oktoberfest / Radio Maria

Last night we took a trip up to Minster, Ohio for their annual Oktoberfest.  We put on our alpine hats, bought our jugs of beer to eat with some bratwurst and enjoyed walking around the shops and listening to the polka band playing from a gazebo in the center of town.  After scarfing down a pudding-filled cream puff and singing along to Sweet Caroline we decided two hours was enough and headed home.

I am a jackass.
On our way back to the car we walked past the studios of radio station 88.7 WHJM (With the Hearts of Jesus and Mary).  Licensed to Anna, Ohio, WHJM airs Catholic programming as part of the worldwide Radio Maria group of stations.  WHJM went on the air in June, 2006 and was almost immediately knocked off the air when lightning struck its tower.  They returned to the air in August of that year.  Radio Maria is based in Italy and broadcasts in over 60 countries through approximately 1,700 transmitters.
