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.
