Lightning and Barix Boxes don't mix

The WSCL transmitter Barix box.

Here is a (hopefully) simple explanation of our audio troubles, with a little slideshow to illustrate.

Audio from our studios is delivered to our transmitters in Seaford, Delaware  (WSCL, 89.5) and Roxana, Delaware (WSDL, 90.7) via a gadget called a  "Barix Box".  A Barix unit basically sends the audio through the internet to another Barix unit.

Postcards from Paradise...for the Show About

The Show About...Seafood

Build it and they will..post? 

The Show About is a funny fellow...he's not on Facebook, not on Twitter, and doesn't really want to be....we think it has to do with his time spent as a  international spy for Luxembourg  in the late 1970's.

But...he does love him some postcards! We'll keep a running slideshow of TSA tagged postcards here.
