Late Spring Update 5-27-21
Hi, Steve G. from Mainely 70’s here.
All right, all right. If you look at the title of our previous blog you will see that it was the first blog of 2021. We were so proud. Look at us! We did a blog! What happened? In short, life. All of us at Maine Internet Radio have been focusing on the programming of the stations. The blog, well, it fell behind. And for that, our sincerest apologies go out to you. You deserve better. And we want to deliver better, no, we want to deliver the best to you. We will try harder. If we slip, hold my feet to the fire.
Since that blog in January, a lot has happened here at Maine Internet Radio. Our stations keep growing and we continue to add new LOCAL advertisers. They are vital in the success of MIR. One of the first things that we have been able to do with the new advertisers was to get rid of the clutter of the national ads on three of our stations. No more Jamie from Progressive, no more Mario Andretti asking America to have lunch with him on Mainely 70’s, Nice and Easy and Cheese Radio. This will allow us to focus exclusively on our local advertisers and also to have only one or two breaks per hour. For example, on Mainely 70’s there is one break of two or three ads per hour from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
We truly appreciate our local advertisers and we encourage you to use their services. And if you would mention that you heard about them on Maine Internet Radio that would help us out also. We have our sponsors listed on our webpage, but for your convenience I’ll list them below along with their web addresses.
I look forward to talking with you next week. After all, I don’t like the odor of burned feet. We want you to talk to us too! Use the “Contact” button on the menu bar of this page.
