  1. These signs stating WE WANT JUDGES THAT LOOK LIKE US and picturing all black judges are now appearing all over the city. Why isn't anybody saying anything about this openly racist campaign? If all these judges pictured were white this city would have folks out protesting and blocking freeways...
  2. The license expired in 2013. Last year the FCC required fees to be paid within 30 days or no renewal. Fees not paid. I was told the tower lease has been renewed on a month to month by Jerome Friemel...a man who works.for Don Werlinger. The FCC was surprised to learn the station is back on. They cant discuss it further because it is a pending investigation
  3. very interesting... i'll do some digging tomorrow...
  4. Everything seems to be working now...
  5. Probably gonna do another Old School Weekend. Seems to be the most popular thing on JoeFM. I did it last Sunday and my Google voice phone number rang off the hook!
  6. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
  7. I heard it too. Twasn't me.
  8. Mr. Tejano... When 98.7 was in testing mode under a construction permit, it was allowed to originate programming just for testing purpose. Now that it is built and they are getting ready to license it, they have to operate as a translator -- e.g., repeating another station, whether FM, FM-HD, or AM. Hum, which is already translating KKBQ HD3 on 106.1, is "filler programming" for the 98.7 tramslator until a new tenant is found. I'm sure they could've found something better to repeat, such as The Point on 106.9 HD 2, but that's not my decision...
  9. Just for now,,,,until they find someone to lease it.
  10. Looks like 101.5 is on again
  11. 98.7 is available for LMA. I heard the asking price is $9K a month. Any potential broadcaster would have to already have a primary station in the same area, or lease an HD subchannel. I also heard HD subchannels are going for about $7K a month. Not the kind of money I'm willing to spend... Purple, something is wrong with the messaging feature. I can't send or receive messages....
  12. That is the site for 980 KQUE I believe...
  13. Mouse, you are such a .... (Well, since you can't see it, there is a link below)
  14. I had an informal opposition on this one raising issues the FCC doesn't want to deal with. See https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5fT1CTu9fUAVlZ1Z01ock5HM0U/view?usp=sharing It is my opinion they found other grounds to dismiss it in order to, once again, avoid having to publicly address the Don Werlinger saga. I haven't been able to confirm it, but a very credible source in the radio industry told me there is a warrant for his arrest.
  15. Stan, I'm not sure I understand your post. The link took me to a story about Atom Smasher moving to Dallas...
  16. Mouse, just corrected it. I'm so old I still forget Houston has more than one area code... Its 281 301 5565
  17. Well folks, I think I just had my most popular theme weekend yet. Started Friday around 7 p.m. and still going for a few more hours. My Google Voice number is the JoeFM hotline. Since Friday evening I've had over 300 calls and texts -- all positive messages except for one caller (who wants another Rock 101 weekend). Maybe I'm getting all the alienated/displaced KCOH and KJOZ listeners...? Hmmm? Did anyone on here get a chance to tune in?

    92.5 FM

    I went to the Amateur Radio HAMFEST up in Belton today. Fun fun fun! Mr. Tejano, there are too many LPFMs trying to use 92.5 around the area to know for sure what you were hearing...
  19. Hey purple hungry farmer doesn't have nothing on the barbecue Inn Crosstimbers and Yale go try that place you'll be amazed
  20. Had a chance to visit with the defacto owner of the KULF facility today. He has a court order granting him ownership of everything but the license to operate the station. He advised he thought he was switching off the station by turning off the computer; hence, that explains why it operated day and night with dead air. Our favorite FCC resident agent was the one who went out there to the site and actually powered down the Nautel transmitter. According to my contacts in Washington, the license was not renewed due to outstanding fees and will soon be cancelled (but everyone knows its really because Don Werlinger has disappeared). The equipment is now for sale, with folks already expressing dibs on stuff in hope of a deep discount. Broadcasters: This is a prime example of what happens when you don't do the right thing!
