Clearing the Static 1742

We open this week with some LPFM news. First, Syracuse finally has its own community radio station, but, will their hyper local approach to music programming help or hurt them? Also, an LPFM is soon to debut in Springfield, Illinois. All indications are that it will be some sort of community radio. We'll follow this story as it develops. Later, we discuss the impending CBS Radio/Entercom merger. We know what stations will be spun off as a result of the merger. Who will be buying these stations? What changes may be on the horizon once the stations are sold? We discuss and speculate.

Clearing the Static 1741

We open with news of a new commercila Spanish language radio station coming to Rochester. Will the new station have any impact on the community LPFM that's already serving that audience? Later, a beloved radio station in Springfield, Illinois has changed format form deep album rock to variety hits. Why did this happen? Do listeners really want a radio station with a broad playlist? Or do they prefer a station that plays songs they already know and like? Gainesville loses its Jazz station in favor of a simulcast of NPR from Orlando. And, Los Angeles is getting K-Love, at the expense of another great album rocker. That's all here on this episode of CTS.
