In the Middle Episode 03 - The Radio Kid's Rant! 66

The latest episodes of In the Middle and The Rant. This time on In the Middle, The Radio Kid shares thoughts on the alleged Russian collusion with Trump, and some very passionate thoughts on violence committed in the name of Black Lives Matter. There is also a guest response from Jake Longwell. Then, on The Rant, we get to share in The Radio Kid's experience of exchanging credit cards. Something which may seem ordinary to most, but, to someone who is totally blind, it is a unique experience, as you will hear.

Clearing the Static 1729

We are posting this episode of CTS early. Please do not air this episode until AFTER you have aired program 1728. Thank you.

We continue with our 4th of July format change evaluations this week. Later, should an FM translator for a local AM signal be given the right to interfere with the fringe signal of a distant yet very popular full power FM station? And, the Russian government leases an FM frequency full time in Washington. Should such a lease be permitted? We discuss.
