Clearing the Static 1808

We open the program with some news from several areas of upstate NY. A legendary Rock station in Utica is sold. An equally iconic radio station in Ithaca makes changes to its main format, and a British couple attempts to buy a station in the North Country of NY. Also, San Diego loses its Classical radio station. And we wrap up the hour debating whether or not the government should continue to give funding for Public Broadcasting, especially when it appears to be less and less attractive to younger demos. That's all here on this edition of CTS.

Clearing the Static 1806

We open the show this week by talking about the impending bankruptcies of both Cumulus and IHeart. How will these companies survive? What kind of impact will this have on these companies and their stations? Also, Emmis sells its cluster in St. Louis. What changes will take place and which stations will stay the same? Later, we get into a discussion about instrumental music, and why it always seems to get such a bad wrap in most circles. That's all on this edition of Clearing the Static.

Clearing the Static 1805

A lot to get to this week. The Alt brand of Alternative Rock continues to spread across the country, even at the expense of an LGBT oriented format in Austin. We discuss a big shake up in Clarksburg, West Virginia where three stations have made big changes. We discuss the increasing decline in the Standards format, as an AM in another part of WV has dropped the format. And, a station run by a Native American tribe in Oklahoma has adopted an interesting approach to Classic Rock, trying to take on the sound of a "pirate station". We discuss all of that, and more, on this edition of Clearing the Static.
