In Memory of Otto Bost

Jul 31, 2016

On July 26, 2016 the Lehigh Valley arts community lost a wonderful friend.  Otto Bost, aka, “Folk Dude” died suddenly while he was on vacation visiting family in North Carolina.  Otto was in the original line-up of radio programmers when WDIY went on-air in 1995. His talents as an audio engineer, broadcast announcer, and live emcee helped WDIY to sound great in its first decades. 

WDIY Listeners,

It is with great pleasure that I am writing to you today to share wonderful news about WDIY.  We have received approval from the Federal Communications Commission to triple the station's effective radiated power from 100 watts to 300 watts. The increase will expand the station's primary service area by about 250 square miles, enabling WDIY to reach an additional 135,000 people, fully reaching the entire Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas.
