WHLX 1590 and 92.7

Post by Deleted User 14803 » Mon Dec 17, 2018 8:39 pm

According to Radio Insight, WHLX which is currently called The Gift, will be starting a new format after the Holidays, the article was dated December 14th so look for something to happen on AM 1590 and Translator 92.7.

As to the permanent format that will emerge - my guess is Oldies or Classic Hits.

I’m guessing Classic Country, But Oldies would be cool, I receive them pretty good during the daytime so it would be a good alternative to the not so big 580. So we shall see.

I definitely would love another oldies station, (1955-1974 only, but major emphasis on the 60s)

I totally agree with you, an Oldies without Can-Con although I have a passion for Canadian Music from the 70’s, probably because my Wife is from Windsor maybe that has a lot to do with it.

No, 105.5 is now and always has been the translator for 1450, and the translator for 1590 is 92.7 which is a new translator. And will remain Rock 105.5, that’s all for now.

I think he was asking because 1450 (105.5) and 1590 (92.7) currently simulcast each other. If 1590/92.7 switches, what happens with 1450/105.5?

1450 and 105.5 will be Rock 105.5, as it always has been since the 105.5 translator has been in existence.Hopefully that will clear that up, I guess I should have been clearer, sorry about that.

I was just under the assumption that WHLS/WHLX were under the same ownership. I wasn't sure if 105.5 was technically a translator for HLS or HLX.

WHLS 1450/105.5, WHLX 1590/92.7 two different stations with translators two different formats after the Holidays, I’m guessing Oldies/Classic Hits On 1590 and 92.7. As for 1450/105.5 it will stay as Rock 105.5 no changes on that station.

Do you live near Merritt and Platt Roads? Or are you Munn-Reese's next door neighbor? That might explain it. It actually has a pretty good signal for being up that far on the dial. I hear it all over most of SE Michigan. I remember it first as WSMA.

Ever see Bob Liggett, Jr. wearing a Beatle Wig? Well, you have now. See lower right corner.

Anyone hear anything else on this station, other than the Radio Insight article from December 14th.
