    From Radio Insight: FCC ActionsThe FCC has implemented new tools to determine the permissible pre-sunrise and post-sunset operating parameters for eligible AM stations. The commission had withdrawn all pre-sunrise and post-sunset authorizations in 2007 following enactment of the US Energy Policy Act of 2005, which lengthened the duration of Daylight Savings Time and changed the local sunrise and sunset times for most of the country. Due to unanticipated computer problems that produced erroneous power levels on certain recalculated authorizations, the use was suspended until correct power levels could be computed. Stations that wish to operate with increased power at pre-sunrise or post-sunset are told to submit a letter request to Joseph Szczesny or Jerome Manarchuck of the Audio Division AM engineering staff, at PSRPSS@fcc.gov. The request must include (1) the licensee name, station callsign, facility ID, frequency, location, and the file number of the licensed daytime facility; (2) an indication as to whether the licensee intends PSRA operation, PSSA operation, or both; and (3) a description of the method whereby any necessary power reduction will be achieved. The Audio Division will then calculate authorized power from their daytime or critical hours antenna system. Pirate ActionsThe FCC has issued thirteen warnings to property owners in the New York metropolitan area over pirate stations operating out of their properties. The warnings were issued to: Gais Jeune and Isabel Moriceau for 91.7 Irvington NJ Saint Hubert and Rosemise Exantus for 87.9 Newark NJ 803 Sanford LLC for 90.9 Newark NJ Roy, Annette, and Gladys McClaire for 102.5 Newark NJ Parkash 2691 LLC for 88.9 Bronx NY 2522 Realty LLC for 94.9 Bronx NY W 2030 LLC for 90.5 Brooklyn NY 80 Lenox LLC for for 90.9 Brooklyn NY Royen A. Wedderburn 2021 Irrevocable Trust for 91.9 Brooklyn NY CRR Ross LLC for 105.5 Brooklyn NY 770 Realty Limited Liability Company for 106.3 Brooklyn NY 601 at 190 Company, LLC for 94.9 Manhattan NY Rene and Pierrette Baptiste for 94.1 Spring Valley NY License CancellationsThe FCC has cancelled the license of Fabiola and Arik Lev’s 1490 WIRB Level Plains AL after multiple allegations of the station being silent for multiple years. WIRB filed a Silent STA application in January, however two people commented to the commission that the station has been silent for several years and that its facilities were dismantled over a year ago. The FCC sent a letter of inquiry in June, which was followed by the licensee surrendering the license. UM Enterprise LLC’s 1360 WMOB Mobile AL has been cancelled after being off the air since August 2022. The licensee admitted to an FCC inquiry that it has failed to operate in over twelve months making its license expired. Dave Minard’s UM Enterprise had acquired WMOB and 1110 WTOF Bay Minette in April 2022 for $100 following former owner Buddy Tucker Association’s Lavaughn Tucker’s age and being unable to keep up with the expense of operating the stations leading them to ceasing operation in November 2020. Community Public Radio has turned in its Construction Permit for 90.5 KRAM Borrego Springs CA after learning it will require a $100,000 major building permit from San Diego County. Wendolynn Tellez has turned in the license for 103.3 KSAG Pearsall TX. KSAG has had multiple CP’s to relocate to 93.3 in order to allow Alpha Media to sign-on its CP for 103.3 KJAK Pearsall that has been tolled since 2016. KSAG claimed in 2018 it had lost its tower site and was fined for operating outside its licensed parameters.

    From Radio Insight: Throughout the ?Streaming Country? era, the challenge has been for stations to decide just how much to lean into newer music and artists. Stations were coming off a period where pummeling each other for the ?New Country? franchise seemed to be punishing only the listeners. It was only 15 months ago that Country Radio Seminar attendees saw results of a national music test that was as kind to John Michael Montgomery as Morgan Wallen.* Sometimes, the hits from streaming, whether Zach Bryan or Beyonce, Dasha, and Shaboozey ? test the format boundaries as well. Stations like KYGO Denver, KKBQ (93Q Country) Houston, and KBAY San Jose, Calif., have been quickest on Country?s streaming-driven reaction records, but those songs have been part of a broad mix, particularly on 93Q and KBAY, which go back to the ?90s as well. Alpha’s KBAY has some of the most interesting weekly adds in the format, but it’s also trying to repatriate listeners of the former KRTY,*which still exists online. It’s cheating a little to compare Australia?s Nova Fresh Country,which launched last month, to any of its U.S. mainstream counterparts. It?s a streaming side channel of Australia?s CHR Nova network; (its rivals, ARN/iHeart and SCA?s Triple-M, already have digital Country side channels). It is produced, but not hosted. U.S. broadcasters already believe SiriusXM?s the Highway has freedoms that their ratings-driven stations don?t. They?ll probably find it curious at best. But Nova Fresh Country has definitely piqued my curiosity as well, just by its sheer volume of new titles, streaming-driven success stories, and songs that poke the parameters of the format. (UK Country often does the latter too. It wasn’t surprising that ?Texas Hold ?Em? became a hit, since the UK had played ?Old Town Road? as well.) But if you’re interested in hearing what a more aggressive version of streaming-driven Country would sound like, it’s a good place to hear those songs in a radio context (as opposed to just a playlist). I took a First Listen, as well as a Fresh Listen to KBAY. Here?s Nova Country just before 10 a.m. on July 10: Nate Smith, ?World on Fire? Shaboozey, ?A Bar Song (Tipsy)? Chris Stapleton, ?Tennessee Whiskey? Jelly Roll, ?Need a Favor? ? yes, spelled ?favour? on the website Riley Green, ?Worst Way? Luke Combs, ?Ain?t No Love in Oklahoma? Josh Ross, ?Trouble? Post Malone & Blake Shelton, ?Pour Me a Drink? Michael Marcagi, ?Scared to Start? Chayce Beckham, ?23? Here?s Nova around 10:15 a.m. on July 11: Koe Wetzel & Jesse Murph, ?High Road? Beyonc?, ?Jolene? Bailey Zimmerman, ?Holy Smokes: Warren Zeiders, ?Pretty Little Poison? Post Malone & Morgan Wallen, ?I Had Some Help? Taylor Moss, ?Dream Baby? ? uptempo/poppy number from an Australian female act; hook is ?we ain?t a dream, baby? Tucker Wetmore, ?Wine Into Whiskey? Lainey Wilson, ?Watermelon Moonshine?* Alana Springsteen & Chris Stapleton, ?Ghost in My Guitar? Hardy, ?Truck Bed? Tyler Braden, ?Devil You Know? Jelly Roll, ?Need a Favor? Ashley Cooke, ?Your Place? Tori Forsyth, ?All We Are? ? Uptempo with Mumfordish (or Noah Kahan-ish) folk feel Old Dominion, ?Memory Lane? Luke Combs, ?Ain?t No Love in Oklahoma? Zach Bryan, ?Pink Skies? I also took a recent Fresh Listen to San Jose?s KBAY. That station has taken a more aggressive tack than KRTY, the market?s previous Country station, which went streaming-only two years ago. KRTY played plenty of new music as well but leaned more traditional. KRTY demonstrably took several of its shares online, at least at the outset; so KBAY?s music now scans ?90s to today in an effort to cover all the market bases.* (With Shaboozey’s “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” moving 8-4 on the Country chart and 3-1 on the Billboard Hot 100, it’s worth noting that it played first in Country on consecutive days in late April at*KSOP (Z104) Salt Lake City,*93Q, and KBAY. Z104 backed off the song and is only moving it back up in rotation now, making 93Q and KBAY the most sustained supporters. Here’s KBAY just before 11 a.m., June 24: Chris Stapleton, ?White Horse? Brooks & Dunn, ?Brand New Man? Dierks Bentley, ?Somewhere on a Beach? Luke Combs, ?Fast Car? Zach Bryan, ?Pink Skies? Post Malone & Morgan Wallen, ?I Had Some Help? Alan Jackson, ?Don?t Rock the Jukebox? Bailey Zimmerman, ?Religiously? Ashley Cooke, ?Your Place? Tyler Hubbard, ?Dancing in the Country? Jelly Roll, ?Halfway to Hell? Thomas Rhett, ?Beer Can?t Fix? Carrie Underwood, ?Undo It? Jordan Davis, ?Tucson Too Late? Chris Lane, ?I Don?t Know About You? Jason Aldean, ?Burning It Down? Ashley McBryde, ?The Devil I Know? more

    From Radio Insight: The surprise opening of a pipeline between Triple-A and Top 40 is also good news for Adult Top 40 radio. It makes Hot AC a conduit to CHR again, rather than merely a slower version of Top 40. It seemed likely that a station would lean into that music in some way. Since the arrival of new cluster SVP/Programming Mark Medina, iHeart?s KMXP (Mix 96.9) Phoenix has been moving in that direction, finally reaching the point where Radioinsight reported the segue last week. As the site?s Lance Venta notes, it pulls Mix further away from CHR sister KZZP (104.7 Kiss-FM) and flanks Hubbard?s Alternative KDKB (Alt AZ 93.3), currently at a 4.0, while many of Phoenix?s heavily fragmented pop stations are in the 2-3 share range. Mix 96.9?s change puts it in the company of sister KTCZ (Cities 97.1) Minneapolis,which has had a Modern AC lean for more than a decade. It also draws on the heritage of the station itself. A lot of the then Jacor/Clear Channel ?Mix? stations of the late ?90s/early ?00s anticipated Adult Hits by mixing AC and Classic Rock. I remember Phoenix having more of an Alternative lean, which included playing ?Banditos? by the Refreshments (a local band, but still a provocative choice at the time). I want to be careful about declaring a resurgence of the now 30-year-old Modern AC format. I have, ahem, done that before. It depends a lot on available product. It also depends on the health of Triple-A and Alternative as sources for the music. But it’s an interesting project. So I took a Fresh Listen to both Mix 96.9 and Cities 97.1 last week. ?I Had Some Help? and ?Fast Car? (which has Modern AC credentials) are both still on Mix 96.9, but Ariana Grande and ?Feather? by Sabrina Carpenter are gone, and ?Espresso? has never been added. Songs in the hook promos range from ?Thunder? and ?Misery Business? to ?Austin? and ?Raise Your Glass.? Current titles all have custom-info featuring artist-drop-ins. On the day I heard Mix, ?Producer Sid? was handling middays (and seemingly also covering for morning hosts Priscilla & Joey based on some of the breaks). There were teasers for Billie Eilish and Green Day Tickets, both directing listeners to the station site. Here?s the new Mix 96.9 at 10:50 a.m., July 5: All-American Rejects, ?Move Along? Billie Eilish, ?Lunch? Calling, ?Wherever You Will Go? AJR, ?Bang!? Ed Sheeran, ?Thinking Out Loud??the :00 ID song Barenaked Ladies, ?One Week? Maneskin, ?Beggin?? Teddy Swims, ?Lose Control? Imagine Dragons, ?Radioactive? Kelly Clarkson, ?Since U Been Gone? Michael Marcagi, ?Scared to Start? Green Day, ?Time of Your Life? Benson Boone, ?Beautiful Things? Foster the People, ?Sit Next to Me? Avril Lavigne, ?Complicated? Twenty One Pilots, ?The Craving? Panic! At the Disco, ?I Write Sins Not Tragedies? Zach Bryan f/Kacey Musgraves, ?I Remember You? I listened to Cities earlier in the week. Mix?s imaging doesn?t give any particular hint of the format modification. Cities continues to draw on its heritage with the ?uniquely Twin Cities? positioner. (There was also another liner, a throwback to the early days of Adult Hits, declaring ?it?s okay, we don?t know what?s going to happen next either.?) In the May PPMs, Cities was up 3.3.-3.8, pushing ahead of non-comm Alternative KCMP ? 3.6-3.4.* Here?s Cities 97.1 at 10 a.m., July 2, with middayer Madison: Vanessa Carlton, ?A Thousand Miles? Noah Kahan, ?Stick Season? Vertical Horizon, ?Everything You Want? Bad Wolves, ?Zombie? Eurythmics, ?Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)? Coldplay, ?Feels Like I?m Falling in Love? Taylor Swift, ?I Knew You Were Trouble (Taylor?s Version)? Edwin McCain, ?I?ll Be? Teddy Swims, ?The Door? Staind, ?It?s Been Awhile? Dido, ?Thank You? Good Neighbours, ?Home? And here?s the same hour on July 4, according to Mediabase, when the station was all-?90s for the holiday: Smashing Pumpkins, ?Tonight, Tonight? Live, ?I Alone? Tom Cochrane, ?Life is a Highway? Lisa Loeb & Nine Stories, ?Stay (I Missed You)? Soul Asylum, ?Black Gold? 4 Non Blondes, ?What?s Up? Third Eye Blind, ?Semi-Charmed Life? Better Than Ezra, ?Good? Dave Matthews Band, ?Crash into Me? Smash Mouth, ?Walkin? On the Sun? Sublime, ?Santeria? more
