Having trouble picking us up? Try Streaming!
Recently, our main transmitter pumped out its last watt of Oldies Power and went permanently on the friz. We are currently transmitting with our backup transmitter at reduced power, meaning some listeners on the fringe are having difficulties receiving us. If possible, consider listening to the Jukebox online, via streaming audio, where reception is 100% world-wide. We apologize for the problem and are working to get things back to normal ASAP.
Our Stickers Have Spots
No, the Jukebox stickers themselves are pristine. By "spots," we mean "location," don't ya know. On Sunday afternoons, weather permitting, Jukebox Sticker Spotting locations will be popping up in the Greater Akron area. Just slap a Static Sticker in a safe place in the front or rear windowshield of your car, stop by, and claim a prize. No sticker? Stop and get one, or request one by mail.
(To be fair, one sticker per family per season. The sticker must be on the car you are in (too bad if it's on your Bentley Continental Speed droptop, and that's in the shop.)
Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad tickets this summer
Every Sunday during the summer, we're giving our supporting members chances for a pair of tickets aboard the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad. Be listening throughout the day for your chance to win.
More info about the railroad at cvsr.com.
Listen to the Oldies on Your Mobile Device
Sundays, you can listen to the Sunday Oldies Jukebox on your mobile device by going to the following links. Links are also provided for downloading mobile apps to your Apple, Android, WIndows phone, etc.
If you have problems listening to the Jukebox on your PC or Mac using the Listen Online button, try this link to listen to the Live365 webcast directly in your media player:
Be sure to allow some time for the stream to buffer before it starts playing. By the way, Oldies Hours are Sunday 3am - Monday 4am. The rest of the week, these links bring you The Alternation.
Better Reception DIY Corner
We've had callers ask about how they can improve their reception of the Jukebox in fringe areas. If you can't take advantage of streaming audio,
try this: First, check our coverage map to see if you are within, or at least near, the fringe ring. Then check these articles that provide tips and
project ideas for those not afraid to haul out the tools or part with a few $$$.
