  • According to WNSP-FM (105.5), the reason for the quality of their broadcast audio being lower than usual this past Monday, July 7th, specifically during its morning and midday hours, was due to the malfunctioning of a data circuit that was normally used to carry their station's broadcast audio before then and due to a backup circuit for their broadcast audio having limited bandwidth (the American Telephone & Telegraph Company (AT&T) was expected to have someone repair their main circuits). They affected not only their local broadcast signal, but their live audio also (the audio was fixed later that day between 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.).
  • Two parts of a collection of audio recordings of local radio broadcasts from September 1978 were uploaded onto YouTube this past weekend (the first part of this collection was uploaded this past Sunday, July 6th, after the the second part was uploaded this past Saturday, July 5th). As for the stations that originated those broadcasts: they include the late WABB-FM, the stations formerly known as WKRG-FM (now known as WMXC-FM) and WLPR-FM (now known as WRKH-FM), and the station known both then and now as WBLX-FM.
