It’s Salt Lake City.
Read about it here.
Norman, KBYU has a transmitter that broadcasts into Salt Lake City, but the station is not actually in Salt Lake City; it’s based at Brigham Young University (hence the BYU) in Provo, more than 70 km away.
Here’s the article about it from Provo’s newspaper, The Daily Herald:
And here’s The Daily Herald‘s editorial (“leader”, as y’all say over there in Blighty) about it:
Since (as far as I can tell with Google’s help) KBYU-FM is/was the only full-time classical radio station in the entire state of Utah, your headline might be more dramatic as well as more accurate if it said that an entire state is losing classical radio.
Thanks…. I’m a Utah innocent.
Off-topic, but southern Utah has some of the most extraordinary and beautiful landscapes in the world. Like being on a different planet.
And Salt Lake City’s orchestra has had a good reputation for a very long time. So does its ballet company. And it is a city like no other.
Could be worth a visit next time you’re over here, Norman!
I’ll put it on the agenda. I have fond memories of those Abravanel recordings.
