DAVE indicates that in the wake of HURRICANE GUSTAV that there are still over one-million people without power and that it may take six weeks for everyone to be back up to speed. GUSTAV hit their power-grid with a blow that DUNAWAY said was the "2nd worst power hit in 95 Years." There is also major flooding that the area is still dealing with.
In light of the recovery, DUNAWAY said that WYPY is still providing "information" to the listeners and not playing much music. DAVE is asking the record reps to be patient about the loss of music spins for the next couple of weeks and obviously his playlist will be frozen.'Said DUNAWAY, "It may be a while before we're thinking about music again."
