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.

Tom Pittman was a member of the Austin Lounge Lizards for over 30 years. These days, he's the host of Vintage Country with Tom Pittman, heard every Friday at 9PM on WSDL, 90.7 FM.

For our second "Meet the Host" segment, we get to know what Vintage Country is all about, Tom's approach to music, and why truck driving songs were so popular.
