I know my local AM station WICH AM 1310 in Norwich Connecticut which is owned and operated by Hall Communications and has an ERP of 5000 Watts, a 3 DA, actually plays music 24 hours a day, seven days a week, calls them selves “personality radio” covers the local games at a minor league baseball park, some of the U-Conn huskies games as well as the local high school games from Norwich Free Academy and other high schools.
You might think this station has no listeners, but during their potperri program with Stu Bryer at 10:00 AM weekdays, which is a local call in discussion program, Stu gets a lot of callers.
I know Hall Communications does not participate in the ratings such as neilson, but this station is doing quite well for an local AM station.
All of their music is played by live in station DJ’s not syndicated programming.
