Even when a station goes off the air — like Hastings College’s KFKX — more go on the air every day. Jennifer Waits joins to share the sad news about KFKX, but also has positive news to report about a new LPFM community station in the heart of San Francisco. That station promises to continue the legacy of the dearly missed KUSF. This sparks a conversation about all the evidence for why radio remains a vibrant medium, where licenses to broadcast continue to be in high demand.
Paul also brings some provisionally good news about media ownership rules being circulated at the FCC, and talks about the fun he had recently while listening to local radio on the Hawaiian island of Kauai.
