We open with big news from Ithaca this week. The end of Progressive Talk on WNYY. What could this mean for the few stations still committed to the format? And, what will replace the format? That would be Pure Oldies. But, what is Pure Oldies? And, could that very same format be on its way to Springfield, IL? It would appear so.
And what of the apparent renewed interest in Oldies by various radio companies? Can it be that radio is giving up on younger ears in favor of older listeners whom they believe will stick with terrestrial radio? If so, what about targeting demos over 55? That seems to have always been off limits, but, why not change that? We discuss all of this on this edition of CTS.
