Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Dallas' WRR-FM Is Entering A New Era

Posted 01-29-2023 at 08:25 PM by case44

The oldest call letters in Dallas have ushered in a brand-new era of programming. This new era began on New Year's Day. And, no, they didn't abandon their classical music format; in fact, they've redefined it.

WRR-FM (101.1) has entered into a new partnership with KERA-FM (90.1) to an expanded music emphasis in its programming, thus ending its commercial broadcast run. No longer will you hear commercials from local piano companies or the Dallas Opera or whatnot, as KERA is forging a partnership with WRR. Their Saturday and Sunday morning blocs which used to have financial and religious-based programming, respectively, has now been replaced with classical music shows and music blocs. So, it basically is all classical, all the time. The thing I've got to get used to is the non-commercial aspect of this, even though the frequency they're on is a commercial station. And this just happens to be occupied by the second-oldest radio station in America, the sister incarnation of Texas' first radio station.

Look at it this way: Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio are three Texas cities who are still getting classical music on the radio twenty-four hours a day. Consider it a blessing on all counts.

    In case anybody outside of Dallas wonders, KERA is our local NPR affiliate.
