2009: Year in Review

Burlington's WBKM has signed on as the first affiliate station of the "Floydian Slip" radio show in 2009.

"Floydian Slip," an hour of Pink Floyd hosted by Craig Bailey, resumed production Sept. 19 with Show 702. WBKM, which stands for "Burlington's Kinda Music," will carry the show 11 p.m. Saturdays.

"Floydian Slip" went off the air June 7, 2009, after a more than 13-year run on Champ 101.3 in Burlington. Bailey had produced the show for other stations prior to Champ, going back to his senior year of college in 1989.

Since Champ cancelled the show citing the station's changing format and the show's lack of sponsorship, Bailey has been working to bring it back to the air on multiple stations as a syndicated offering under the moniker of the Random Precision Radio Network.

"I'm excited to start back up with the guys at WBKM," he said, "and hope they're the first of many stations that'll give listeners the chance to hear the show."

Owned and operated by Tony Gallucci and Eric Koval in downtown Burlington, WBKM began netcasting an eclectic mix of programming in November 2007.
