: Chicago gets jazz back on the AM dial, from 6pm to 5am, as Relevant Radio apparently leases out 6pm to 5am to an operator who will do "Avenue 950" under the slogan "Timeless Cool." The station that's now WNTD is one of those rare AMs with more power at night than in the daytime (1-kw days, 5-kw nights). It's owned by Sovereign City Radio Services, and it runs the Relevant Radio Catholic teaching lineup during the daytime. T-R-I reader and columnist Lindsay Wood Davis notes that his father Thomas L. Davis ran then-WAAF (950) as a jazz station from the late 1940s until the mid-1960s. Chicago also had a longtime real-jazz station at 1570 named WBEE, licensed to Harvey, IL.
Who's leasing out the time on 950?
