Bellingham's KBAI flips to Classic Hits

Postby radiofan » Tue Aug 01, 2017 7:51 am

Saga Communications has flipped Liberal Talk 930 KBAI/98.9 K255DC Bellingham WA to Classic Hits “98.9 K-Bay”.

Through the 70s, 80s and 90s the station was Country KBFW.

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

What a shame and shades of Air America. If a liberal talk station can't subsist in Democrat-friendly Washington State, where can it? Good luck with a music format--the station's weak signal will hardly make for compelling fidelity.

Not sure why but the left has a hard time getting audience in radio or TV. Might be a lack of talented hosts, not sure. MSNBC has done a pretty good job as of late but it is mostly due to Trump and his antics and the Murdoch kids not running FOX as well as the old man.
