Back in late May, owner Don Curtis was hoping that "Country Legends" oldies station WQDR 570-AM -- off the air since the tornadoes that struck Raleigh in April took out its broadcast tower -- might be broadcasting again before the summer ended. The latest update finds that timetable moving back a bit, to the middle of September.
"I had said I thought it would be back by Sept. 1, but now I'm thinking it will be more like Sept. 15," Curtis said on Friday. "Our engineers have been working on a new design this week. We miss that station, too. Especially the revenues."
