KISN's 91-derful 47th Anniversary Show This is The Time Machine Show's tribute to the history of KISN radio.
KISN 91 leaves the air a second time. On February 1, 2007 shortly after midnight, KKSN 910 changed formats from oldies to "Talk Radio Oregon." The last hour of oldies programming was exclusively composed of goodbye songs. The last two songs played were the same as the last two played when KISN signed off in 1976: "She's Gone" by Hall & Oates and "Someday We'll Be Together" by the Supremes. At the very end, a recording of Dave Stone's 1976 signoff plays, followed by some dead air and the new format. This recording has been telescoped down to about 23:25.
KTRO-FM Flips to Spanish. On March 28, 2007, around 11:10 AM, KTRO changed formats from talk "Talk Radio Oregon 93.1" to Regional Mexican "El Rey." Note: The transition to Spanish was not smooth. On this aircheck, you will hear a miscue and a lot of dead air.
KISN Returns as an online Oldies station and virtual museum.
KLYC Leaves the Air. After serving the McMinnville community for almost 23 years, 1260 KLYC signed off due to financial hardship and the inability of owner Bohnsack Strategies, Inc. to successfully negotiate a sale of the radio station. The signoff occurred March 22nd at 1:00 PM, a time meant to symbolize the station's broadcast frequency (i.e. 12:60 PM or 1260 kHz).
KISN returns again, this time as an LPFM station on 95.1 MHz, broadcasting from Mt. Scott with an effective radiated power of 2 Watts. This aircheck was recorded from my home, which is about 19 miles from the transmitter site, using a 10 element log-Yagi antenna. Reception is extremely good, considering the low power of this station. Here is an alternate mono recording of the tick-tock sound effect heard at the beginning of the broadcast. Note how much less background noise there is when the station is received in mono.
