We're back!

So we're back! Thank you to Cliff from Comcast Business.

It looks like the storms that passed through the Mon-Yough area on Thursday afternoon (and caused the cancellation of some of the entertainment at International Village) also caused power surge on the modem --- even though, yes, it was plugged into a UPS!

Sorry --- we're currently off-line!

We apologize! Sometime last night, the Comcast Business connection to our studios in the Tube City Center (the former Daily News Building) went down.

Comcast made multiple attempts to restart the connection remotely --- most recently at 1:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. today --- and was not successful.

We're waiting for a Comcast Business technician to arrive this afternoon and will post an update as soon as we can.

The 'golden age' of radio is on WMCK.FM!

Six days a week, we're the "new sound of the Mon Valley." But on Sunday nights, we're the "old sound" of original scripted radio drama and comedy!

Jack Benny is back on the air on WMCK Sunday nights at 7. Each week, we dip into an archive of classic Jack Benny episodes, featuring his regular cast of naive tenor Dennis Day, alcoholic bandleader Phil Harris, rotund announcer Don Wilson, the "yes-s-s-s-s-s" man, Frank Nelson, Benny's faithful (but sarcastic) valet, Rochester, and Benny's real-life wife, Mary Livingston.

Listen, and find out why Jack Benny, the pride of Waukegan, Ill., and supposedly the stingiest man alive, was one of America's most popular comedians for 40 years.
