5/12/2012, 6925 kHz USB,

*0134 signed on with machine-gun sound effect, and ID "W-P-O-N-- the weapon".

Into folkish/protest type music.

"We are the 99 percenters" KEWL!
"No bankers left behind"
"I hate banks, how 'bout you?" 0140

My kind of programming!

STRONG S-9+ in Lansing, MI.
SINPO=55545

Thanks for the show, WPON!

I have them here with Mojo Nixon's I Hate Banks, followed by a 'WPON. The Weapon' station ID.

'Don't get mad, get a weapon. WPON.' Followed by some remix involving 'Ahmadinejad'
