    Default FM unIDs

    Spring cleaning on some winter FM meteor scatter unIDs. Any leads are greatly appreciated:

    96.1 - "Power Ninety..." and drops off. Feb 16 at 0630 EST. Could be WWPW Atlanta GA or KQPR Albert Lea MN - does the jingle sound familiar?

    97.5 - "The Power Morning Show" on Feb 17 at 0853 EST could be KJCK Junction City KS or CJKR Winnipeg MB. Does anyone recognize the voices?

    97.9 - ID sounds like "Magic 97.9" but I can also imagine it as "Classic 97.9". It's country. Not finding a listed slogan that comes close to matching... Heard March 16 at 1022 EDT.

    98.3 - "The River" slogan. Feb 15 at 2042 EST. Could be AR or NC. Anyone recognize the voice / liner?

    101.7 - Ad for Katie's / Katy's, a restaurant on Main Street. On March 14 at 1446 EST. Seems a long shot but does this register with anyone?

    101.9 - "Mix 101.9, What do you think the answer is?" Heard March 15 at 0921 EST. I'm asking much the same question. Is it WYMX Skokie IL, KRWK Fargo, or KMVX Monroe LA? I'm leaning towards KRWK because the slogan seems closest in terms of matching, and the station is somewhat of a Ms regular. But I'm hoping this sounds familiar to someone.

    With thanks,

    98.3 - "The River" -- Search results show KFCM, Cherokee Village, AR - Classic Hits - Branding as "The River 98.3" - A possibility.

    Thanks, Kegan. So does WDLZ in Murfreesboro NC, per WTFDA FM station directory.

    So I'm presuming one or the other... my guess will be AR, since it's higher power. But that's just a guess at this point.

    97.9 sounds like it says magic 97.9 but the song doesn't sound like country, but more like Christian AC.
    101.9 most likely not WTMX, they almost always ID as "101-9 The Mix". Accent sounds like someone from Fargo too.

    I agree. That's certainly not Chicago. Very much the wrong accent and wrong ID.

    KJCK 97.5 airs the Power Morning Show with Robert & Kate.

    Your 97.9 is playing Rend Collective "You Will Never Run". The station is Christian Contemporary as Ian also thought. It's Life 97.9. Here's their jingle to compare: Life_97_9.mp3

    Thanks, everyone.

    Re 97.9 - The "Life" sure got distorted in the meteor burst but the jingle indeed matches as does the style of weather delivery.

    Re 97.5 - Right about KJCK. Winnipeg is Power as well, and I saw a reference to "Power morning show" online but with small-caps on the last two words. Had a closer listen to their stream and ruled them out just for sake of certainty. KJCK is in my logbook.

    101.9 likely ND. Ruling out IL as result of this info. Will double-check re Monroe LA.

    96.1 - another DXer rules out KKPR as it's classic rock without a jingle of the sort heard. Likely Atlanta, which I'll look into.

    98.3 - still need to check between NC and AR.

    Really appreciate!
