The RDV Radio Network, with studios in Hatboro, is making changes in its daytime deejay lineup.
The public radio network is heard on 89.3 FM (Warminster-Hatboro), 97.1 FM (Bensalem), 107.3 FM (Philadelphia), WLBS FM 91.7 (Bristol-Levittown), on the web at wrdv.com and on various apps, including Amazon Echo. The network is one of the few in the country (and the world) with a weekday format of big band/swing and pop vocals.
The new lineup began Monday, Jan. 7 when, at noon, Connie Gale of Hatboro took over the noon to 3 p.m. slot with “Connie’s Canteen.” Gale has been a regular substitute deejay at the station for the past year.
The next change was Wednesday morning, when 16-year-station veteran Bob Mackie of Richboro assumed the 8 a.m. to noon slot. The third change happens today, when Tom Gamble of Delaware County takes over the 3 to 6 p.m. slot, replacing longtime host Dale Temple of Warwick, who has retired.
“A recent review of our internet listening audience shows that we are heard, literally, all over the world with regular listeners in the U.K., Germany, France and the Asian nations,” said Music Director Ted Taylor. “Our new slogan should be, ‘Listen to us around the corner or around the world.’”
