Radio Del Mar

Radio Del Mar broadcasts from the city of Comodoro Rivadavia in the Chubut province of southern Argentina. I received this sticker from them in 2004 but it appears they've moved up the dial to 98.7 FM since then. Their format seems to be heavy with News/Talk and some music programming. Google Translate says their "programming is done for all tastes, ranging from information through music, politics, sports and programs with their own opinions."

Bisons vs Mudhens

Traveling 2 1/2 hours north this afternoon for a baseball double header between the Buffalo Bisons and the Toledo Mudhens. Game one is a continuation of last night's rain-suspended contest while game two will be an abbreviated seven inning affair. We plan on hitting a couple indie record stores beforehand and maybe grab a bite at Tony Packo's. Go Bisons!!

WGR is a Sports Talk station from Buffalo, New York.

WCWA is a Sports Talk station from Toledo, Ohio located at 1230 AM. Although they're otherwise all-sports and an affiliate of Fox Sports Radio, their 6 to 10 am morning show consists of Smooth Jazz. In 2007 WCWA became the flagship station of the Mudhens. Their call letters are a reference to Toledo's location on Lake Erie and its connection to the St. Lawrence Seaway (C-WA.)

UPDATE: Buffalo lost both games 12-6 and 5-4. Good fun nonetheless.

CFAI

101.1 FM CFAI is a station from Edmundston, New Brunswick along with a rebroadcaster located at 105.1 FM licensed to Grand-Sault, NB. After spending a few minutes unsuccessfully trying to find the history of CFAI at 1500 AM, I realized that the sticker actually reads "15 ans" and that ans is French for "years." Boy am I stupid. CFAI is listed as a Rock station in multiple places but their playlist seems to include a lot of Top-40 acts. It's safe to say that they're a CHR station at this point.
