    that may have a thirty percent chance of reaching us in four days Steve Hirshon from WMPG s Hukkin A Chainek Thursdays 6 30 9am Volunteer Profile Blizzard Bob Wade Now come and hear a story bout a man named Blizz Somebody called me up one morning during The Quilting Bee when I was playing a set of bluegrass Yo Blizz He s not here this is Michael Wadd d he just leave he s been playing great bluegrass all morning Blizzard Bob Wade from Blue Country Wednesdays 9 11am Volunteer Profile Ruby Simkoff Mmmmm Girl Sounds Like Man Trouble to Me What s your answer to the musical question Where were you when the Evenin Sun went down For most of the past 12 years of Thursdays but recently moved to Fridays at 5 00PM that answer would be listening to Ruby spin all those great blues tunes many featuring women artists Simple calculations show that she s been on the air for over a 1000 hours during that time and that adds up to a whole bunch of Etta Denise Irma Marcia and Katie Ruby Simkoff from Friday s Evenin Sun 5 7pm Volunteer Profile Patrick Kambu Mbenza At 6 15 each Saturday morning Patrick Kambu Mbenza arrives at the WMPG studios A recent arrival in the US from the Congo by way of Poland Patrick hosts a music show from 6 30 to 8am which he presents in four langauges English French Polish and his native Lingala It s difficult to imagine the financial pressures on a commercial radio station They have certain hours of the day that are so important so crucial to their financial well being that if there is any true spontaneity left it sounds formatted Drive time those hours of flux between dawn and work are the most brutal Listeners are in and out of the shower finding a matching sock wiping the baby spilling the coffee and commuting to work And the numbers for a radio station can be enormously significant Advertising numbers listener numbers the demographics of those listeners and the economic status of particular age groups Stations compete with one another with traffic updates weather reports one sentence news updates and happy talk Lots and lots of happy talk Non commercial stations those below 92 on your dial breathe ever so slightly easier They don t work on the premise that listeners have the attention span of a gnat They may drop in the weather report but the possibility of a partly cloudy day never seems to warrant two minutes of chattiness about a cold front that that may have a thirty percent chance of reaching us in four days Now come and hear a story bout a man named Blizz Somebody called me up one morning during The Quilting Bee when I was playing a set of bluegrass Yo Blizz He s not here this is Michael Wadd d he just leave he s been playing great bluegrass all
