   KRLY Alpine files a "minor change" with the FCC. The station has been broadcasting on 107.9 since it went on the air nearly 7 years ago.

   Well, after I kicked the gremlins out of the machine, I had to start a new website. For me, it was not easy. For you, all you have to do is update your bookmark.

   Other than that one simple thing.... NOTHING WILL CHANGE! You will always get the most up-to-date San Diego Radio information, just as you always have.

  Sad part is, when the gremlins left, they took most all my contacts with them! I ask that you give me a little assistance by spreading this change around. Please e-mail me with your contact info. Fwd it, print it and put it in your kitchens and studios, place them in your family's Easter cards.

Also, you can sign up on the e-mail list just under the black and white photo above

   Seriously, though, thank you for following me over, and I will not let you down.

My new e-mail My old one was eaten.

The new website is
