Towamencin Official Wants Turnpike Interchange Name Change

Turnpike-LogoThe Chairman of the Towamencin Township Supervisors, Dan Littley, is advocating a name change for the Lansdale Interchange on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. He says it was Kulpsville when the Northeast Extension opened in 1955, and it kept the name for 20 or more years before the Turnpike Commission changed it.

He says he wants it changed back to Kulpsville because the name will give township residents a sense of community they may not feel when people stand on township soil and call it Lansdale.

“A lot of people coming into the township keep referring to North Penn High School, because of the Zip Code, as being in Lansdale when actually it’s not.  It’s in Towamencin Township and we know best because our police respond there, our fire department responds there.  Towamencin was losing its community identity to zip codes.”

Littley says restoring the Kulpsville name to the turnpike interchange is not a new idea.  A couple of residents suggested it five years ago when the township was developing a long-range strategic plan.

WNPV AM 1440 AM/FM Radio Has More Daily Listening than All Other Audio Combined Source: John Potter, SVP/Professional Development, RAB Edison Research released results of their Share of Ear study at the Radio and Internet Newsletter (RAIN) Summit in Indianapolis on Tuesday, which took place prior to the 2014 Radio Show. The goal was to show all radio listening from a single source. Included were AM/FM radio, Internet radio, SiriusXM, and other audio sources. This was a national study conducted in May, 2014, online and offline, of persons 13+, in both English and Spanish. The sample base was 2,096. The methodology was diary based where respondents logged listening including platform, device, Internet radio brand, location (car, home or other), and type of element. The study shows AM/FM radio commands over half of Americans' share of time spent listening to audio sources: AM/FM radio -- 52.1% Owned music (CD's, digital music files...) -- 20.3% Internet radio music (Pandora, Spotify...) -- 11.6% SiriusXM -- 7.7% TV music channels -- 5.2% Podcasts -- 1.7% Other -- 1.5% More importantly, the study broke out audio listening of radio services and found AM/FM radio increased its lead over other audio sources: AM/FM radio --75.3% Pandora -- 9.2% SiriusXM -- 11.1% Other Internet radio -- 4.4% Daily reach for AM/FM radio is similar to other studies showing nearly 3 out of 4 Americans listen to AM/FM every day: • AM/FM radio --72% • Owned music (CDs, digital music files...) -- 39% • Internet radio music (Pandora, Spotify...) -- 26% • SiriusXM -- 13% • TV music channels -- 11% • Podcasts -- 5% The full study is available for purchase from http://www.edisonresearch.com.
