Podcast #32 – FBI Files, Public Files, and Winter Storms

The FCC just ruled that radio stations will have to upload their public files into an online database, making certain records much more accessible. We discuss what this means for both stations and listeners, and why, even though it seems like an extra burden, this can be a good thing for college and community radio.

College radio correspondent Jennifer Waits tells us how one college radio station weathered 26 inches of snow piled on by winter storm Jonas, and reports on the mysterious disappearing online stream of Columbia University’s WKCR.

And Matthew Lasar digs into the FBI’s vaults to uncover its files on prominent radio personalities.
