2 Girls 1 Name Episode 16

The two Serenas are back with another show.


Clearing the Static 1824

This week, we spend most of the hour discussing the latest proposal submitted to the FCC by the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) concerning radio ownership deregulation. Needless to say, it's not good. We discuss and debate the possible impact if this thing goes through. Also, some changes are in the works in Oswego County, New York, but don't look for a new local radio station serving the county anytime soon. We'll tell you why. That's all on this edition of CTS.
