    How many businesses need to fold before management realizes that syndication and economies of scale aren't always the answer? Unfortunately in the current business climate, in media as in so many other industries, only big can thrive as big gets necessary concessions to conduct profitable business.

    On weekends I listen to "the smallest NPR station in the nation," Robinhood Radio AM 1020 out of Sharon, Ct. which includes plenty of local programming. I hear and enjoy re-runs of interviews on Saturday morning. I love "The Way to Garden with Margaret Roach," and segments from the week's Breakfast Club regulars. The station also runs the syndicated shows such as "Car Talk," or "BBC World News," yet it maintains a balance with welcome local flavor.

    Local programming is important to some residents in big cities as well. Clear Channel owns WOR Radio 710 in NYC. A fairly new addition to the Clear Channel family, [the station had been privately owned and the owner died], the suits seem clueless as to how to capture the once loyal NY metro audience which I've come to realize they aren't interested in. Their goal: To attract youngsters to their station but I fear they are simply making a hash of it. Inserting news stories and repartee involving sex studies and punctuating talk with hip musical intros won't get kids to tune in. Folks interested to hear intelligent talk about local issues can no longer turn to that station.

    I am sorry you and others in Westchester are losing WFAS. You honored it with a lovely obituary.

    Nice blog David--
    Kind of reminds me of Jean Sheppard's radio show... Talking (writing) about; Real life. Real people. Real learning to be.... what you were meant to be!!
    Thanks.

    "Thanks for sharing this, David. A longtime friend of mine worked in radio during college and then for another eight years after he graduated. Much of that work was in smaller Wisconsin communities. So much local flavor and personality has been lost."
