Random Thought

While awaiting our next full update, sometime later today or tomorrow... a question.

How can Cleveland Cavaliers flagship WTAM/1100 produce a Cavaliers' broadcast from literally the other side of the world - Shanghai, China - that sounds like Fred McLeod is doing it from Cleveland...

...but Akron market talker WNIR/100.1's regular weekend remotes from car dealers literally down the same street from their studios in the same Akron suburb sound like they're coming from China?

OK, so we know the answer...

Because WNIR routes their remotes through the Hooterville switchboard via their hand cranked phones!

Hey, it takes a lot of dedication to climb up that telephone pole for the sake of a remote.
