On this episode Dr. Christopher Terry from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee tells us how the FCC has fumbled its updates of media ownership regulation for a dozen years, and why that’s important. We also learn why community radio and independent musicians should care that NPR has left the MIC coalition, a lobbying group targeting music royalties. Listener Kent Peterson shares why he enjoys the extra variety offered by HD Radio.
In college radio news, KCPR at Cal Poly eliminates overnight shifts and sends non-student DJs packing. And in Lasar’s Letter on Radio we learn about community radio in India and Africa.
