KEIN and YPR

It’s been several months since I’ve heard anything but static on KEIN (1310 AM) – no more “Music Of Your Life,” no Frank Sinatra, no Peggy Lee, no Mel Torme, no Glenn Miller, no Steve and Eydie. KEIN has been off the air before, but I’ve got a strange feeling it ain’t coming back this time. Very sad.

But there is something new on the Great Falls airwaves – Yellowstone Public Radio. They started broadcasting on 89.5 FM a few days ago. I was afraid that it would be simply a copy of our existing MT Public Radio station (89.9 FM), but there are differences – some programs are the same, but there are different ones, too, and the ones that are the same (Performance Today, for instance) airs at different times on the two stations.

So. Having YPR doesn’t quite make up for losing KEIN, but it’s still pretty cool.

Voices Of Montana in GF

Aaron Flint hosted his weekday “Voices Of Montana” radio program from The Daily Grind in downtown Great Falls today – very cool. Among his guests were Ed Buttrey, who talked about UAVs/drones, and James Parker Shield, who talked about the possibility of a tourist center on Hill 57.

Aaron’s show airs M-F on AM 1450 KQDI in Great Falls. Good stuff.

I listen to a lot of radio as I’m driving around town – flipping between KEIN for some classic tunes (Sinatra!), some NPR and 102.7 for news, 92.9 and 93.7 for rock and pop…and plenty of 1400 for talk radio. Lots of the talkers frequently push the “Income At Home” website, and I always figured it was some sort of referral website that would connect people with work-at-home prospects based on interests and abilities.

I was pretty sure it wasn’t a guaranteed “money maker,” but figured it at least would list different ways to make money working from home – operating a website to sell crafts or art, or setting up a niche blog with ads, etc.

Nope. I went to the IncomeAtHome.com site recently, and it turns out that it’s…Herbalife. Yep – the “Lose Weight Now, Ask Me How!” company. At the bottom of one the click-thru pages after you enter your email address, there’s this little print:

So if you’ve ever been tempted to try the “IncomeAtHome” site, that’s the bottom line: Herbalife.
