Clearing the Static 11-22-15

Lots to talk about this week. We begin with some headlines. THen, we put the debate over community radio vs. commercial radio in Springfield to rest. Not that we don't value feedback from our listeners, but, we feel we need to move on to other topics. Later on, more good news for Classical music fans. Also, more debate and discussion over AM revitalization, and how it could potentially harm LPFM. All that and more on this edition of CTS.

Clearing the Static 11-15-15

An all discussion show this week, and there is a lot to talk about. Everything from the sale of Ibiquity to DTS, to Christmas music coming to central New York. More developments, such as they are, concerning the PPM. Also, a statement from the head of Town Square Media about their commitment to localism, and the company is going to be featured more prominently at state firs throughout the Midwest. How is this possible? You'll find out when you tune in to this edition of CTS.

CTS Extra 39: Remembering Ed Walker

On this special CTS Extra, we remember Ed Walker by recounting his many
accomplishments, and by presenting airchecks of his last show -- aired
on WAMU (88.5) Washington, DC.  Ed Walker, believed to be the first
blind american in radio, and the host of the Big Broadcast OTR show on
WAMU, died on October 26th, 2015 -- just hours after his final Big
Broadcast show aired.  We honor him on this CTS Extra.
