MARCONI Adult Standards WHAT-A (MARTINI LOUNGE RADIO)/PHILADELPHIA underwent an inadvertent format change FRIDAY morning (1/11) when passing storms triggered a power glitch, which reset the station's studio computer, which defaulted to a Rock format!
PD ALVIN CLAY tells ALL ACCESS, "Overnight storms caused the automation computer to reset and it went into a default schedule that came with the system. That’s all been fixed and the default has been changed if it ever happens again. Ironically it was on the one year anniversary of MARCONI BROADCASTING taking over WHAT... not a pleasant birthday surprise to wake up to!"
CLAY adds, "What was very encouraging were all the e-mails and phone calls from listeners who were very concerned that they lost their favorite music and station. We called and emailed everyone who contacted us to assure them we are still here."
