I was out driving back from shooting pool with some friends of mine, last Friday night. We encountered a strange radio station at 91.5fm. Now, in my neck of the woods, 91.5 is an LPFM (Low Power FM) stations run by the local car wash, to give details about their washes and processes. Evidentially, from just outside the Galleria area’s western side, on in to the downtown area, you can hear someone broadcasting on 91.5fm. Does this go on all night? I don’t know. I know it was going on from 1:30am until around 3:30am when I lost the signal. The thing is, it’s NOT any regular radio station. At my friends house, we listened for an hour, and no station ID. Not even a single spoken word. Just a lot of different styles of music. Trust me, it’s not a Jack station… I think it’s a Cap’n Jack station.. you know, Cap’n Jack the Pirate?
You heard me. Next time you’re down there on a Friday or Saturday night, inside the loop, maybe around montrose, the heights, downtown… tune in 91.5 around 1:30 am, and listen. If there’s dead air, keep listening. Maybe you’ll hear somethin new and neat.
Wish I knew who that was so I could 1) score an interview for the blog, and 2) find out what this one song I heard, was.
UPDATE: The radio source on 91.5 has been found to be Rice University’s station 91.7, simulcasting at a lower power on 91.5 Not sure of the reason, but hey, to each their own. They were just playing things I normally don’t hear, even on their station, and a bunch of dead air for a few minutes, at one point. My mistake, and apologies.
