Another action packed CTS this week. We begin by offering our condolences to the family of a long time friend of the Radio Racket program. We than talk about format changes in Oklahoma. Then, Beasley Broadcasting acquires Greater Media. How will this affect the various clusters formerly owned by Greater Media. Later, still more discussion of Canadian radio. A sad format change coming to Ottawa. Then, we discuss geoblocking of Canadian radio streams here in the US, and whether or not this should be permitted. Check it all out on CTS!
