Radio Waves

While the local classical music public radio station is having their end-of-year begathon, I’m listening to Interlochen Public Radio out of the Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan. I used to listen to it when I lived in Petoskey, and it’s nice to hear them again.

It’s also interesting to hear their weather reports. Thanks to the heat wave yesterday, it was hotter up there than it was here in Miami. They also had a rip-current warning for Lake Michigan; something I’m used to hearing down here when there’s a strong on-shore wind on Miami Beach.

If IPR can keep their stream working — it’s had drop-out issues in the past — I’ll keep listening. I still know some of the people there, they play a broader selection of music, and there will be a tad of schadenfreude on my part next January when the weather report warns of temperatures approaching -17 F.
