Hey,
Any idea who they are or where they are?
How often is that station on, I would like to see if I could hear them.

I spent the school year 1964-1965 at the Milwaukee School of Engineering. I remember WRIT was an AM-FM simulcast with their AM on one of the graveyard freqs, 1340 I think. It was a R&R station in competition with top 40 WOKY920. They did their own thing back then. The only other alternative to WOKY was 50KW WLS890 100 miles to the south in Chicago which was a top 40 stn with a slightly different playlist. WRIT was better than either to listen to. Besides they were also on FM which sounded better and had less audio compression. BTW, I didn't really like Milwaukee.
