Just a note so folks know if they want to tune in that WMET 1160Am is now part of the Guadalupe Radio Network - Catholic programming. WMET is inside the World Building and old timers will recall it was WGAY then for a bit tried to go pay-for-play by having folks buy airtime to put their shows on and sell their own ad space to support it.
