Sports Radio

This will be a short post, but I thought I would give a shout out to something I’ve been enjoying on the radio on the way home from work: Sports Box on WVHC, 91.5 fm.

WVHC is the Herkimer County Community College radio station. I’ve been listening to it since I came to Herkimer. They mostly play, as the promo puts it, “straight ahead jazz.” I love jazz, so my radio is usually set at 91.5. I can get the station in my car pretty clearly in Herkimer, Mohawk, Ilion and Frankfort, and sometimes all the way into Utica. Then it statics out. But they also stream online. According to the website, you can get them on your mobile phone too, but being so technically illiterate, I don’t know anything about that.

Sports Box features a group of young men talking sports. I used to catch it at noon if I happened to be in the car then. Recently they moved it to 3:30, my drive time.

I’ll be honest, I don’t follow sports. I don’t know a lot about sports. But I like listening to these guys talk. They are knowledgeable and articulate. They have confidence in their own opinions, and it’s not just the confidence of youth. They back up what they say, and they seem to know what they’re talking about.

They cover all kinds of sports: baseball, football, basketball, NASCAR. If you like sports, and you like good commentary, check out Sports Box on WVHC, 91.5 fm. For more information, visit their website http://www.herkimer.edu/wvhc.
