Podcast #45 – The Controversy of Firsts


College radio correspondent Jennifer Waits joins for a discussion on the difficulty of claiming “firsts” in radio. Sparked by claims that WTBU in Boston was the first college station to stream online in 1999, Jennifer, Eric and Paul examine these kinds of proclamations.

Then Paul shares some low-power FM news from Los Angeles where the community spirit of creative cooperation and compromise is resolving a competition amongst 18 applicants for a single frequency in that city. Instead, at least a half-dozen new stations will go on the air, thanks to the efforts of the applicants, recently licensed stations, and volunteers from the LPFM advocacy group Common Frequency.
