Christmas Lights

On one recent evening a group of us piled in the car and drove around Conway to view the Christmas Light displays.  I guess the economy has taken its toll on the number and quality of nighttime displays because they were pretty lackluster, but then we arrived at the famous circle in Catherine Place.  Wow!  Not only was this years' display better than ever, the synchronized music played loud and clear through our car's stereo system.  We sat in amazement watching and listening to the lights as they danced from yard to yard in this subdivision circle.  Congratulations and a big thank-you to those families who made this display one to remember, and to see again and again.  In a truly down year, marked by disaster after disaster, this display provided an oasis.  If you are so-inclined, load up the kids and grandparents and take a look.  You won't have any trouble finding it. (And be sure to tune your radio as instructed by the signs)

Yes, Christmas Lights!

Drive over to Catherine Place, and tune to 89.9 FM on your radio for a great display of Christmas lights.

These links show the location:

The first link shows the subdivision by name, the second link shows one of the streets inside the subdivision, but more clearly shows the surrounding streets.

I Got a Question
Unpublished

My daughter drove me through last night and we came in off S Donaghey and their broadcast was reaching 5 or 6 blocks away.

So what does the FCC think about anyone broadcasting a 1/4 to 1/2 mile radius can I start my own free cast like the old pirate radio stations?
