The prize of the night was 870 WPWT Colonial Heights TN--a daytimer, simulcasting an FM, that didn't sign off at sunset. I caught it around midnight.

CJGX was a rare catch and I found it to be a delightful country station, not unlike CKDM.

1. Did you mean WTMJ for the second WTEL listing?

2. KCMO is in Kansas City, not St. Louis
