Listening to a New Chicago Radio Station

From the March 20, 2015, Chicago Tribune "Radio vet named program director at MeTV FM" by Robert Channick.

MeTV FM launched its oldies pop music format earlier this month at 87.7 FM, all the way at the end of the dial, said they had hired Chicago radio veteran Mark Zander as its program director.  He has been at Chicago stations WLUP-FM 97.9 and rocker WCKG-FM 105.9.

The station will have an eclectic mix of 60s, 70s and 80s music for the Chicago-based Weigel Broadcasting which also owns classic TV network MeTV and WCIU-Channel 26.  two great oldies TV stations.  It is their first foray into radio.

Their web site does not apparently have streaming, but hopefully soon.  We pick it up fine here in Spring grove.  Saturday, we listened to it as they played disco after disco song.  I found out that they fo all disco Saturdays from 8-midnight, so get your dancing shoes out.

We listened yesterday as well and it sure is a great mix of oldies songs, just right for Boomer folks like us.
