March 9, 2018 at 9:40 am #181682 MTN ProductionsParticipant I’m looking forward to this. Today is the last day of WLUP-FM’s “The Loop”, and I’m going to record it later tonight. The final night will be at 7 PM central time, if I’m in the eastern time zone, it will be 8 PM. The station will pull the plug at 12 AM central, 1 AM eastern. I don’t know if one of the jocks will be for the final night. We shall see. http://www.youtube.com/user/Musicradio77Network March 9, 2018 at 1:00 pm #181686 Eric Jon MagnusonParticipant MTN Productions wrote: I’m looking forward to this.

Quote If you record anything, it should be Steve Dahl’s show this afternoon (which should be simulcast on both WLUP and the usual WLS)… Steve Dahl To Host WLUP Farewell Show Robservations: Steve Dahl to ‘lock up’ The Loop today I don’t think there’ve been any hosted dayparts since the end of Mancow’s morning show on Tuesday; speaking of which, here’s how that show ended… March 9, 2018 at 3:19 pm #181687 Eric Jon MagnusonParticipant For posterity, here are several opinion/analysis items from over the course of the week; personally, I think that they’re all good enough to at least skim through… http://www.dailyherald.com/insights/20180309/ron-onesti-classic-rock-radio-as-important-as-the-music-itself http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/post-tribune/opinion/ct-ptb-davich-wlup-nostalgia-rock-st-0311-20180308-story.html IN CASE YOU MISSED IT – Why Did WLUP Fail?

CST (instead of waiting until 12 Midnight). On the other hand, I also wouldn’t be surprised if Dahl’s “Loop” farewell show is repeated from 8 P.M. to 12 Midnight CST, followed immediately be the launch of “K-Love”.

I was using my iHeart app and when’s I was recording Steve’s final show, the stream cuts off due to buffering. Does anyone has the full show? I hope if there’s a podcast available on WLS website. http://www.youtube.com/user/Musicradio77Network March 10, 2018 at 1:20 am #181693 Eric Jon MagnusonParticipant MTN Productions wrote: Do you have Steve Dahl’s final sign off?

Quote Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to actively follow the final day. However, there should be something added over on the Format Change site (at https://formatchange.com) over the course of the weekend.

Thanks to Ellis Feaster for these two. Steve Dahl is not going anywhere, he is still going to be on WLS-AM starting Monday. http://www.youtube.com/user/Musicradio77Network March 28, 2018 at 9:25 am #181977 John BasallaParticipant So, what did WLUP do as they approached and reached midnight? Did K-Love take over immediately? April 4, 2018 at 8:12 am #182074 BruceParticipant The announcement said that the WLUP calls would be placed on a station to be determined. Do those calls have any value outside of Chicago? April 9, 2018 at 9:30 am #182160 John BasallaParticipant “Air-One” is currently going through one of their fund drives, asking for donations, with the “standard” donation said to be $40.00. They also are pushing for a monthly donation of $10 per month, with premium perks thrown in. Does K-Love do pledge drives at the same time? It would be interesting to know how well they do, on the donation scale, with their new stick. Author Posts Viewing 12 posts - 1 through 12 (of 12 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
