Last Thursday, KWSS station manager Frank Magarelli informed us that the station would be back on the FM dial within "five to eight days."
Apparently Magarelli is a big fan of "under promise, over deliver," because the station was back on the air by Friday afternoon.
The Morning Infidelity Top 5 Fest concert, originally planned as something of a benefit to get the station back on the radio-waves proper, is still scheduled to go down on Saturday, July 30 at 910 Live in Tempe.
TMI personality Beef Vegan says a petition will circulate at the concert, and that attendees can sign in order to have a document on record that illustrates how "the station as a whole services the community."
