Frampton Live on WNKU-FM
Here's one reason to listen to WNKU-FM's spring fund drive: Rocker Peter Frampton will not only play his favorite songs at noon Friday on WNKU-FM (89.7), he'll also autograph 50 copies of his Grammy-winning instrumental album, "Fingerprints," as a pledge premium. The fund-raiser starts Wednesday, and goes through Tuesday March 27. Other premiums include tickets to the station's Over the Rhine concert and to the "Before The Music Dies" documentary.
And if you live in Butler County, or the northern suburbs of Hamilton County, you can now hear WNKU-FM loud and clear 24/7 on FM 94.5. The station signed on a 100-watt repeater station in the Port Union area of West Chester Township to serve the northern 'burbs. The signal reaches from about Glendale-Milford Road north to the don't-call-it-the-Michael-A-Fox-Highway (Ohio 129), and from Hamilton/Pleasant Avenue (US 127) east to the Union Centre/I-75 area. WNKU's 89.7 signal doesn't reach much beyond the Norwood Lateral so it doesn't interfere with WLHS-FM (89.9).
