ACCESS....First in the Nation!!!
Dixville Notch, New Hampshire -- The last time we saw WOKQ's Mark Ericson, he had just commandeered a SnowCat and was broadcasting live from the top of ice-covered Mt. Washington. This time he's moved the show indoors to report live from the nation's first polling place in the U.S. Presidential Primaries. Even though there are only about 75 residents in this small (but lovely) town, all of the registered voters (which this year numbered 17) gather at midnight to cast their votes. The polls then close at 12:01 a.m. and Dixville Notch's election results are broadcast throughout the world. For this year's primary, WOKQ listeners were getting a live, firsthand account thanks to their new ACCESS Portable codec. Hey Mark, where's your cool hat?
