A friend just sent me this link to a recent art., which maybe you've read, maybe not:
     Mon. 11/2/15 8:13am Listener Robert:

Since the URL gets shortened in the display here, I'll give the art. name: "How NPR Killed College Rock".
Avatar    Mon. 11/2/15 8:15am fxo:

thanks Listener Robert. Glad we're not a College Rock station.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 11/2/15 8:17am Parq:

Hi Frank. Been listening with pleasure for about a half hour here. That was nifty, going from Joni to Jack Bruce before. I never noticed it, but he kinda sounds like her on that track, doesn't he?
Avatar    Mon. 11/2/15 8:21am fxo:

Parq: I loved the melodic transition between Joni & Jack.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 11/2/15 8:28am Bronwyn Bishop:

Loved both of the Beach Boys pieces ('Til I Die and the mashup...)
     Mon. 11/2/15 8:28am Listener Robert:

I read the article (turns out to be a book excerpt) & discovered why I'm broke. I love free enterprise & I'm not a rebel against anything, much, yet I'm perceived as an outsider, a weirdo who's not trying to be weird.
     Mon. 11/2/15 8:30am Listener Robert:

If only I'd been a hippie, or a yuppie, or punk, or whatever, I coulda been something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 11/2/15 8:30am Mark the Sardine:

What a great set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 11/2/15 8:31am Parq:

Listener Robert, that was a good read, but the author was wrong to assert that NPR was exempted from the anti-government defunding mania of the early 90s. On the contrary, I can remember the Contract with America crowd outright crowing that they were going to croak NPR. I stopped listening to NPR in the late aughts when, presumably in defensive response to those efforts, they started bending over backwards to be "fair and balanced" toward the right.
  Mon. 11/2/15 8:36am BillyD:

Thanks for a great show Frank as usual. Listening from NJ instead of Dublin because I'm attending band mate Michael Carlucci's funeral. You've made a sad morning a little brighter. Thx.

     Mon. 11/2/15 8:39am Listener Robert:

Yes, Parq, I noticed that too, and it seemed to me hilarious how transparent NPR's sudden change of attitude was. And I'm not a leftist, and always had considered NPR to be the type of propaganda those people complained about. But it was AUTHENTIC propaganda, so I listened to it! Then it became a weird mixture of authentic propaganda & counter-pandering.
  Mon. 11/2/15 8:39am P-90:

@Parq: I pretty much abandoned NPR in the late aughts too. It had lost whatever original character it had become blandly, numbingly corporatized.

Love the R. Stevie bed music!
     Mon. 11/2/15 8:44am Listener Robert:

The only NPR (or maybe APM, but I think NPR) program that seemed to have the right introspective attitude in response was "On The Media", whose theme was, "How could we have been so clueless?" If it wasn't sincere, it was a very good act, enough to convince me at least. Ran out of material in a couple years, though.

Thanks Bronwyn, I'll pass it on to him...

Aw, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 11/2/15 8:47am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@BillyD: Condolences.

Yes - Public Broadcasting has been in an existential & political crisis for some time. I still get so much from NPR - local weather, several podcasts from various stations around the country...
  Mon. 11/2/15 8:47am P-90:

NPR used to be like PBS used to be, not slick, not that well-funded, openly experimental and a conscious "alternative" to what the "commercial media were doing. There was even something slightly subversive about Sesame Street when it first appeared. That's all gone now.
I do remember the college stations had always been in that "left of the dial" zone the article mentions, and everyone I knew did flock to them when commercial radio really turned to crap at the end of the seventies. FMU was always there, evolving...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 11/2/15 8:48am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

College radio used to be purty dern FreeForm, as I recall...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 11/2/15 8:49am Bronwyn Bishop:

You should see college radio now. I'm a college DJ and we work off preprogrammed logs playing the shittiest possible "modern rock". Even our specialty shows play the same songs over and over. I do the funk show on Friday nights and a guy called this past Friday telling me it was the best two hours of radio he'd heard in 20 years, simply because I actually dared to play stuff that doesn't come from our tiny little funk section of our tiny little music library.
Avatar    Mon. 11/2/15 8:54am Frank O'Toole:

Keep the faith, friends...
glad you enjoyed the show. I'll be back, next Monday morning, 6AM to 9AM, here with a new webcast, at WFMU.org, as well as WFMU, East Orange, etc.. Have a nice week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 11/2/15 8:54am Parq:

Bronwyn, I was on college radio when the era of so-called college rock was just getting off the ground (I did my last show in July of '79). One other thing that New Republic piece neglects is the role of record companies in creating that scene. Even before punk, they turned to college stations to push the music they couldn't sell on commercial radio, and often expected the college radio music directors to be outright shills for the labels. By the time "college rock" came to be a Thing, they has successfully co-opted college stations into a directly controlled marketing arm of the big label consortium. I always suspected that they were pretty much dictating playlists, and what you're saying bears that out.
     Mon. 11/2/15 8:55am Listener Robert:

FXO, is the coming Mon. a Jewish holiday? No JM in the AM, so you'll be on radio?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 11/2/15 8:56am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

There's the swing to the Right - & there's been the Great Recession - which are the same thing - in that the money all around got tighter...
Hm - an interesting perspective, maybe, on why 'Alternative' got ghettoized instead of just becoming the new Rock...
     Mon. 11/2/15 8:56am Listener Robert:

Parq, I thought the article DID mention that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 11/2/15 8:57am Bronwyn Bishop:

Yeah Parq, I've observed that too, having interned at a couple labels including WMG. I've observed the big label guys discussing marketing plans for certain bands and then at school, guess which bands our music directors seem suspiciously excited about?
Avatar    Mon. 11/2/15 8:58am fxo:

Robert, I'll be doing my webcast, but not on the radio.

thanks y'all.
  Mon. 11/2/15 8:59am P-90:

Thanks fxo, Alfred Hitchcock and Donna Dixon seem to come too soon every week. You should have four hours. Or maybe five...
     Mon. 11/2/15 8:59am Listener Robert:

Oh. You wrote upthread, "...as well as WFMU, East Orange, etc."
  Mon. 11/2/15 9:12am fxo:

thanks, P-90, I appreciate it.

and, Robert, it's the WFMU legal ID.
