SanDiegoRadio Update

By Joe Nelson

   Good morning, just a little note here to let you know SanDiegoRadio will resume one week from today, Aug. 1, 2016. It very well could have been today but I am moving back to Santee this Friday and into the weekend so I will be ready next week. I think you know how much 'fun' the moving experience is.

   I really appreciate those who contacted me expressing their support! All is good and I can't wait to get it going again.

   I will tell you there wasn't a whole lot that we missed. It has been very quiet, but normally the term 'The calm before the storm' is especially true in radio.

Thanks again and I will see you in one week!

FM 94/9 Partners with Comic-Con

By Joe Nelson


San Diego, CA: San Diego’s #1 Alternative Station, FM 94/9 (KBZT FM) has announced the return of its popular Comic-Con contesting, giving San Diegans the MOST chances to win coveted passes for the July mega event.

“FM 94/9 is about San Diego, and that means we’re about the lifestyle, the culture, and of course, the Con,” said afternoon host, Assistant Program Director and Music Director Jeremy Pritchard “We have all these passes, all that’s left to do is give them to YOU!”
The convention, which is in its 46th year, brings the biggest stars in movies, television, gaming, and popular culture for four days of mayhem at the San Diego Convention Center, and brings tens of thousands of people downtown every year.
“Like Super Bowl tickets, these passes are like gold, and with interest in the convention growing every year, they get harder and harder to get for real fans,” said evening host Jeff Hamby, “We’re doing our part, in sending the MOST San Diegans to Nerdvana.”
Listeners will have seven chances every weekday from July 5th to July 8th to win passes with FM 94/9’s ‘#FreeTicketSummer’ promotion, and then more chances to win with the Cantore+Woods morning show the week of July 11th, and evenings with Hamby leading up to the convention, July 18th, 19th and 20th.
Information about FM 94/9’s Comic-Con International: San Diego contest can be found on the station’s website,
