WLJK's new transmitter sits in the equipment rack to the left of the old transmitter, which will now serve as a back-up.

The transmitter for South Carolina Public Radio's Aiken station, WLJK-FM, 89.1, had been in service for nearly 30 years, and it was time for an upgrade. Engineers from SCETV did that upgrade earlier this week, installing a new transmitter, moving and re-wiring key associated equipment, and upgrading electrical distribution for the transmitter (including back-up by an emergency generator).

Jazz vocalist Charenée Wade began singing at 12 and learned from jazz luminaries such as Carmen Lundy and Christian McBride. Her clear voice and impressive technique landed her first runner-up in the 2010 Thelonious Monk competition, and she followed this success with her debut album, Love Walked In. On this episode of Song Travels, Wade joins host Michael Feinstein to share about her first experience performing on stage and her growth as an artist. Wade performs jazz classics, including "I Didn’t Know What Time It Was" and "Blue Monk."

Mose Allison
Michael Wilson, moseallison.com

One of the most original and provocative musicians in jazz, pianist Mose Allison (1927 – 2016) was heavily influenced by the blues. The Mississippi native drew inspiration from Sonny Boy Williamson, Fats Waller, Louis Armstrong, and Thelonious Monk to create jazz flavored by the blues, along with tastes of his own sardonic wit. On this 1988 Piano Jazz, Allison opens with one of his typically witty tunes, “Someone’s Going to Have to Move.” He and McPartland join forces on an old classic, “Your Red Wagon.”

  Please be advised that the 2017 spring solar outage season will affect South Carolina Public Radio March  4 – 9 at approximately 1:57 p.m. each day.  This will result in a temporary loss of our program signal from satellite sources such as NPR. During this period some programming has been adjusted to prevent any audio interruptions. A solar or sun transit outage is an electromagnetic phenomenon wherein a station down link is temporarily unable to receive a satellite signal due to interference from the sun as it passes behind the satellite.
