About Us

The same cost-cutting, profit-maximization strategies that caused many small business to succumb to big-box chain stores have also changed the world of broadcasting.  Music radio once thrived with colorful local DJs introducing new tunes to an anxious audience of faithful, request-making callers. Talk radio traveled a similar path, filling hours of airtime with neighborhood happenings mixed with local views on national and world issues.

Today’s radio is dominated by a few national, corporate providers of scientifically-designed playlists interrupted in spurts by either a disembodied pre-tracked voice or maybe some local jock, and for talk radio, it’s almost all nationally-syndicated “celebrity” pundits.  The direct connection is completely lost.
