“NO CHRISTMAS MUSIC ON WJIB DUE TO POWER OUTAGE IN MAINE, the source of most WJIB programming.
A comedy of errors up here…. WJTO Generator not working, my car is stuck in the mud from so much rain, and even if I could get to Cambridge by car to re-program the WJIB-Cambridge computer (what you’re hearing now with regular programming) it would not be safe to leave here to get on the glass-frozen roads we call the flash-freeze. Central Maine Power says we’ll have power restored on the 25th by 10:30 pm. Now 215,000 Maine customers without power. Cape Cod WBAS is off the air entirely, so is WJTO, and separately WLVP. WLAM in Lewiston is still on the air, last I knew.
Sorry folks. Maybe I’ll put all Christmas/holiday music on Monday.”
