...until the early 1970's
my parents and grandparents owned homes north of Tawas up near AuSable
Point. Now 60 years old and blind, I stream your radio station through
Ross D. - Augusta, ME
...the first time I
caught Laura's (Ingraham) show, I also discovered that I love the music that
you have as well -
so I have ended up listening in even more frequently!
Terry - Grand Rapids, MI
I just recently discovered your station and I love the music...
Bob D. - Lansing, MI
...the music is
outstanding! I wish there were more stations that carried this great
music! Please keep playing these great tunes!
Gary V. - AZ
station-love YOUR music!
Craig H. - St. Louis, MO
I heard your station
while vacationing at Tawas State Park...What beautiful Music! I
wish we had a station like yours at home... Roy A. - Lake of the Ozarks, MO
and really enjoy listening to you all day now too. Please don't ever
change! Arthur & Marlene R. - Tawas City, MI
...I've heard some
songs that bring back a ton of memories, as well as a great selection of
offerings that I never paid attention to before, but they sound
Beatty L. - St. Louis, MO
In the years 1959 - 1961 ...WIOS...was
the best thing I recall about school at that time. Glad to see it is still
there and will be listening to it this summer when we have our 50th reunion.

Terrestrial radio is still the clear, top choice for music discovery.
According to a survey conducted for the National Association of
Recording Merchandisers, it shows that
six out of ten (60%)
musically-active consumers say broadcast radio is their top influence.
Listeners are telling us
they discover "new" songs all the time. Thanks for making us your #1
data shows that radio reaches 93% of the population each week over the age
a radio industry leader in online radio streaming, shows in their latest
data that internet radio listening is up!
We've noticed, too, on our media encoder server that you're listening to
online more than ever! Thanks for your ear!
You can also download the
TuneIn Radio App (the
industry's most popular online streaming app!) and listen anywhere there's a network connection!
Note: When using TuneIn Radio in the Car
Mode, ask the Voice Search to "Listen to Adult Standards" in order to find
WIOS. There are other references to "WIOS" in the app that don't connect
to our webstream,
and asking for "The Bay's Best" will bring up some other funky music
station. So asking for "adult Standards" will take you directly to
WIOS 1480 AM!
The Original Radio App from 1956!
Wi-Fi Radio Users can now
program their internet radios for WIOS!
(Just in case the Reciva.com database
doesn't populate your Wi-Fi radio set)
into the "Tune In URL" setup of
the receiver through your Wi-Fi radio's computer software and then listen to WIOS anywhere
there is a wired or wireless internet connection!*
*Most Wi-Fi radio sets
are portable AND behave like tabletop units as well. They work wherever
there is a public, wireless Wi-Fi connection or can be connected with an
Ethernet cable into a router, switch or hub. You'll receive a static-free,
buzz-free audio signal in total high fidelity on a Wi-Fi radio set, just
like you do on your PC! (A high-speed internet connection is needed to
minimize buffering. A 1Mbps minimum download connection is recommended.
1000 kbps down is
probably the absolute slowest connection to listen to most online radio

Streaming Technical: The broadcast is sent
monophonically direct to our AM processing for the AM transmission.
However, the streaming audio is stereo taken from a separate outboard processor. If you have an
exceptionally good AM receiver with full 10kHz IF bandwidth, you will experience
a hi-fidelity frequency response closely approximating that of the streaming
service. WIOS's music is digitally "cleaned" and equalized to provide removal of
most analog noise, clicks and pops along with crisper highs and deeper lows on
older recordings where that range had been previously restricted.
