In a previous "essay" I wrote for this website about my time at WNTY, I made mention that WNTY appeared in the Spring 1997 Hartford and Waterbury Arbitron ratings. What was clear at the time was that it marked my debut as a rated jock. What was not clear was whether it marked WNTY's debut as a rated station. I thought it did and stood by it. Now, thanks to information I obtained online, I thought wrong and spoke too soon. The source of the info is the American Radio History website. Spring 1997 was WNTY's first ratings book appearance since the Spring book of 1980. Even so, getting my first ratings at a station 17 years removed from the last ratings book appearance is still pretty cool. I was so sure of this that I had a challenge available to anyone who could prove me wrong. To this very day, not a single person ever bothered to take me up on it. Anyway, many thanks for allowing me this forum to set the record straight.

Hello ken is my name and am inquiring about something I found here on the site regarding WQTQ. I attended school at the Oakhill school for the blind from 1974-1975 to the 1978-1979 school years and never knew that antenna for WQTQ was on our campus. I was recently reminded of hearing the station one night in 1978 after downloading a song to my computer I heard that night. I think I now know who the DJ was. can you tell me where on the Oakhill campus the transmitter was, and also can you tell me where Stephanie Jarett, AKA sexy jay is now and can I get in touch with her. is she a minister now as the admin of the facebook page for WQTQ reports? thanks and hope maybe even that stephanie see this.

Found your website from a link on Wikipedia as I was searching WKSS. I worked there in the early-mid 80's, then moved to Daytona Beach in 1986 to host mornings at WNFI for 3-years...and many stations in FL after that. Boy how time races by! All the best!

My family left Ellington, Ct. in '64 for Florida with P&W so dad could work on the SR-71. I was already listening to DRC then and continued to listen to it when we visited relatives there every year after thru the mid 70's. I loved it! However, I remember at some point listening to WABC out of NYC when DRC went off the air every night. (We didn't receive it well in the daytime.) What time did DRC go off the air and when were it's round the clock hours adopted? Great site, by the way! Regards, Pat
