I figured that this would be what would happen… Radio Rich and Louann (who officially left a competing station a month ago) began at US 103 at 7:30. They also debut a new slogan “The Capital City’s Best Country,” and basically drop the “classic” from their format.
The Website has now been updated as well:
Somebody decided to take the BNSF Lawrence Yard goat (2467) for a Joyride, per a radio story. It apparantly struck the Derail at about 14 MPH. It was rerailed Monday morning and moved to Topeka.
I have an alibi… so don’t blame me :).
I’m sure you’ve heard the joke about stations with tight playlists being
derided as “playing the same three songs over and over.” Right now, KQTP
(“US 103”), licenced to St. Marys but serving the Topeka market, is doing
just that, specifically “Gone” by Montgomery Gentry, “Kiss This” by Aaron
Tippin, and “Gone Country” by Alan Jackson.
The song rotation is part of a radio stunt, as the station is planning on
debuting a updated format Wendsday at 7:30.
