Cadena SER have announced they are closing on medium wave across Spain.

Mike Terry to WRTH FB group (2022-06-19)


(Translated from Spanish) As they have said in some groups it’s not a closure as such, just that the technicians will stop repairing the transmitters that are going to malfunction with which the MW network of the SER Chain will slowly die… Sad ending.

790 “The Score” Sports Radio is Back.
It’s been nearly 15 years, but now “The Score” is coming back to 790 AM radio. 
In an announcement posted to YouTube, The Score touted its return with “round-the-clock sports programming,” sports betting, Jim Rome, Kevin McNamara, and Yankees, Celtics, and Browns sports coverage.
Now WPRV and owned by Cumulus, it has previously been WSKO for New England sports coverage starting in 1998.
For ten years, it featured such hosts as John “Coach” Colletto, Andy Gresh, Scott Cordischi, John Rooke, Steve Hyder, Jess Atkinson, Amy Lawrence, Scott Zolak, John Crowe, and Bryan Morry.
The sports format had been discontinued in 2008 — and now, it has returned.

Today, there are nine sunspot groups on the solar disk, the most in years. If only one explodes, Earth could experience a solar storm. The most likely would be sunspot AR3031, which has an unstable ‘beta-gamma’ magnetic field that harbors energy for M-class solar flares.
