In the vein of practice what you preach, two of the bloggers here, myself and Jennifer Waits, have regular weekly radio programs. Our third accomplice, Matthew Lasar, is a frequent guest on my program, mediageek. The mediageek radioshow covers grassroots media along with a focus on the regulatory and legal maneuvers that affect our ability to communicate freely.
Matthew was my guest last week to talk about this here little blog and the new FCC, which just saw its last two new commissioners ratified by the Senate.
The previous week I was lucky to have Jennifer as my guest to talk about the value and importance of college radio in the modern multichannel universe.
Matthew has made several appearances on the radioshow in the last fifteen months, and I hope that I’ll have the opportunity to have Jennifer on again, too.
Mediageek airs live weekly for an hour on WNUR 89.3 FM in Evanston and Chicago, IL at 9 PM on Thursdays. A half-hour syndicated version airs on thirteen other non-commercial stations in the US and Canada, which are listed at the radioshow website. And if the show doesn’t air on a station near you, you can always listen at the show’s website.
The program is free to air for any noncommercial radio station. So if you work at a noncomm station or have a local station that you think should broadcast it, drop me a line and let me know.
