In our radio market, they do a strange thing called a "split show".

It comes on at 12am, runs for an hour, sounds like it is ending for the night. The theme music runs, etc. Then at 1am, it starts fresh.
Sometimes it seems like the first one hour segment is a repeat of the
previous night's show ending. No big deal, just confusing and a little annoying. Why not just run the whole show?

I guess it is not market-specific, I just pulled a random description off the CTC page.

"Tonight is a split show that will ponder space and the cosmos. In the first half, historian Robert Zimmerman will discuss recent events in space politics and history including developments at NASA, and how the sun's magnetic field is shutting down. Then, astrophysicist and author Dr. Bernard Haisch will share his theory that the universe is a product of an intelligence."

Any discussion on how this will effect the surf break at Trestles?

(Calling Peegoo to the courtesy phone)

I used to listen to C2CAM every night as I was drifting off to sleep.

I left here in March to go sell a house, out of state. When I got back, a few weeks later, none of my radios (whether AC or battery powered) would pull in an AM signal (unless all I wanted to hear is white noise).

For the past 6 months I've had an FM talk show that's had to substitute as a sleeping aid (BBC on PBS radio).

I suppose I could bite the bullet and buy a new clock radio that would get HD stations since C2C
is broadcast on an HDFM station, here.

Until then, I get to fall asleep to BBC.

A thought just occurred (that DOES happen now and then) Could Wi-Fi be the culprit? The apartment complex added "free Wi-Fi" (it's hidden in the rent) to all apartments, here

Coast to Coast is the best source for updates on Loch Ness and Bigfoot as well.

Back in the days when I was gigging four and five times a week I used to listen to a show called Dreamland that was hosted by Art Bell. I believe it was great entertainment when I had a five hour drive in the wee hours of the morning. The last I heard it was hosted by Whitley Strieber.

Coast to Coast was the other show I listened to where people would call in and talk about being beamed up to alien space ships and being examined by aliens.

It was very entertaining and did a good job of keeping me awake.

WIFI spectrum is typically not going to interfere with AM radios.

LED lights on the other hand...

Last night, I had the same issue with the first hour of the show...
it was a repeat of the previous show.
