DPR Programming Notes

The 2 Boomer Babes are on the move! Starting August 29th, "The 2 Boomer Babes Radio Hour" is moving to 7AM on WSCL, 89.5 FM. 

Also starting August 29th  t 11 on WSDL, 90.7, you can hear "The Delmarva Almanac" followed by "The Treatment with Elvis Mitchell"

For those of you wondering why your reception of WSCL & WSDL...or any other radio station, for that matter...has been so wacky lately, the graphic below illustrates what's known as "tropospheric ducting"...a natural atmospheric phenomenon which (unfortunately) plays havoc with radio signals. See that big yellow patch sneaking into Delmarva from the east? That's a sizable amount of ducting and it's affecting everyone...including DPR. As I've been known to say, "Radio rocks, but Nature rules." We apologize for Nature's misbehavior and appreciate your patience and understanding.

Every year, in the Spring and again in the Fall,  the public radio satellite system experiences what is known as a solar outage.  During a solar outage, the signal we receive can be temporarily blocked for anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. If we are carrying a live program (such as Here & Now), you may hear a temporary bit of silence or a short recorded message we play announcing the outage.

The next outage season should run March 3rd-6th for Maryland.
