WTMD compresses its eclectic musical mix to accommodate sports

AIRCHECK

September 16, 1995|By Steve McKerrow | Steve McKerrow,Sun Staff Writer

Where did the polka show go? What about all those doo-wop oldies, Irish jigs, folk music, reggae songs and guitar riffs?

The most eclectic lineup of music heard on area radio, previously airing Saturdays on WTMD-FM (89.7), moved to Sundays last weekend.

Making way for Towson State University football broadcasts and other campus sports events, the listener-supported radio station TSU has retained all its specialty music shows but compressed each from three hours to two.

Here's the new Sunday lineup:

"The Polka Hop," 9 a.m.-11 a.m.; "Reflections of Ireland," 11 a.m.-1 p.m.; "Echoes of the Past" (doo-wop), 1 p.m.-3 p.m.; "The Blues Connection," 3 p.m.-5 p.m.; "Detour" (folk) 5 p.m.-7 p.m.; "Reggae Rhythms," 7 p.m.-9 p.m. and "Guitar Works," 9 p.m.-11 p.m.

In another lineup change, "Hot Talk" WCBM-AM (680) is launching a new daily schedule on Monday to adjust for the hole left last month when morning talker Alan Keyes left the air to pursue his campaign for the presidency.

The major move brings Zoh Hieronimus to a morning slot from her previous evening position, and the host says, "I'm ready to go up against the boys."

The 10 a.m.-2 p.m. run of "The Zoh Show!" airs opposite Allan Prell and Rush Limbaugh on WBAL-AM (1090), G. Gordon Liddy on WJFK-AM (1300) and "The Marc Steiner Show" on WJHU-FM (88.1).

WCBM is also reducing its venerable "Conference Call" daily discussion program to a weekly appearance and adding a weekly two-hour talk show featuring former governor William Donald Schaefer.

Here is the weekday WCBM lineup:

"The Morning Show" with Sean Casey and Frank Luber, 6 a.m.-10 a.m.; "The Zoh Show!" 10 a.m.-2 p.m.; "The Tom Marr Show," 2 p.m.-6 p.m.; and "Uninhibited Radio" with Les Kinsolving, 7 p.m.-10 p.m.

Mr. Schaefer's show will be heard from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursdays, and "Conference Call" will air from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Fridays. Other feature shows will be heard from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. the other nights.

"Maryland Magazine On the Air," a new radio venture of the bimonthly Maryland Magazine, debuts tomorrow evening on Legends Radio WWLG-AM (1360) and WASA-AM (1330) in Havre de Grace.

The weekly program airs from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m., and the premiere edition features an interview with Jim McKay, the former Evening Sun and WMAR (Channel 2) reporter who went on to a legendary career at ABC Sports and currently is a Maryland race horse owner.

A different form of radio -- the two-way communication variety known as "ham radio" -- is getting some exposure today in Linthicum.
