The Sonic IDs

APM pioneered and continues to create the “Sonic IDs”, stories and anecdotes that weave throughout the broadcast day of WCAI with the voices, sounds and stories of our region. This innovative way of keeping the station intensely local using interstitial station ID breaks with the voices of people from the listening community have become a blueprint replicated by stations across the country.
