Clearing the Static 1906

Jake Longwell and Bob Cavanaugh co-host another full hour of radio news, including possible major developments concerning Cumulus and Cox, plus speculation about what may become of 94.7 in NYC. Public Radio disappears from a market in Texas as the area's only NPR stations are sold to a Catholic radio operator. A new community station comes to Santa Cruz. All that, plus much more, on this edition of CTS.

Status Update 2-25-19

Dear Affiliates and Listeners:
I am pleased to announce that our computer is mostly up and running,
and that CTS Productions has resumed limited production of shows.
It seems that most of our programs could be restored -- except for the
flash drive that stored most of the CTS Productions content offline.
While I do hope to someday have that fixed and retrieved as well, it
will take much financial doing, as it will take $2,000 to restore.  We
do have most of our Radio Serena files and CD imprints that were on
our computers' harddrive, and that is what we are using.  I plan to
build our imaging and music libraries back up to where they were
before that crash.
There is a fully produced Radio Serena this week, as most everything
has been restored.
As for Clearing The Static and 2 Girls 1 Name, those are different
animals.  Skype will take much longer to try to configure and
re-install again to be compatable with Screen Readers.  This is
because there is no more Skype Classic, and modern Skype isn't screen
reader accessable.
I'd like to thank everyone again for their patience and understanding.
--Serena Kyle

Status Update

Dear Listeners and Affiliates:

Jake Longwell here with a status update. Thanks to Bob Cavanaugh, Clearing the Static has resumed production with new shows. He (and possible others) will fill in as guest hosts until Serena is able to resume her regular hosting duties. Speaking of which, her computer is still out of commission, and in the shop. Techs are hopeful that they can restore it back to health, but there are no guarantees at this point in time. Radio Serena is still on indefinite hiatus as a result. That is the latest from here. Please check this site for further developments. Thanks, as always, for your patience and understanding.

Clearing the Static 1902

We're back with a new show. As The Radio Kid is still experiencing serious computer problems, we have guest host Bob Cavanaugh sitting in with Jake Longwell to discuss radio happenings all over the US.
