Even a blind pig can find an acorn once in awhile...and as I twiddle the AM dial, every now and then, I find something interesting! This time, it was "All Blues Saturday" on WDIA, 1070 on the dial, from Memphis, TN:
I happened to tune in very early (5:18 Central) Saturday morning and found them, before they faded into the gray line. Yes, I grew up on a farm and still have that "early rise" habit, even on my days off. In fact, my body clock STILL hasn't adjusted to this latest time change; I regularly wake up right around 4:00 AM most mornings. I need to make better use of that time....
Another I found late at night when I got called back in to work was WCNZ,"The Avenue" (www.avenuefla.com) 1660 AM on Marco Island, FL...great mix of jazz, early rock, easy listening and such. I heard it with a GREAT signal over a closer station in Chipley, FL.
Nonetheless, AM isn't totally populated with sports and talk...root around and see what's out there after dark and early in the morning!

(as an addendum, a reader left the following comment:"KMOX AM 1120 plays music on Saturday nights from 8pm-1am provided there is not a Cardinals game or St. Louis blues hockey. Sometimes the music will start at around 9 or 10, just depends on the sports schedule."
I'd mentioned KMOX's Johnny Rabbitt's music show, "Route 66" that I'd mentioned in a post long ago, regarding a review on a little radio I'd done. "Route 66" gets pre-empted a lot by sports. Good reminder, thanks for the catch! bs)
