Another one bites the air
that CNET radio
(which was on the air at 910AM in San Francisco) is gone. Guess that's one less reason to miss the Bay Area.

, North Carolina's outstanding public classical music station, has started straming in Ogg Vorbis, courtesy of Ibiblio
. It's still streaming in MP3, Real and WMP, too.
Mark my blog: Ogg is going to seriously kick ass in the long run.

'Nuf not said
I'm starting to think seriously about putting satellite radio in the old Subaru. My only requirements: NPR and an easy UI. Recommendations?

has a new Web page that's a triumph of design over communication. On my browser it's about 1000 pixels wide and has all the personality of a tile floor. Not good.

Yesterday on my main blog I waxed at length
about my old radio days in North Carolina. Today my old friend Steve Tulsky, whom I met when we were both at WDBS, reminds me
that even the guys who ran big successful competing commercial stations (our enemies when we were working for our little starving barely-commercial station) were terrific broadcasters; and that Raleigh-Durham really was exceptionally well-stocked with Good Radio.
Near as I can tell, it still is. WUNC
is a first-rank NPR affiliate with a huge signal. WCPE
is a first-rank noncommerial classical station, with a signal that's just as big. WNCU
is a relatively new jazz/public station broadcasting from WDBS's old tower just outside of Durham with a much bigger signal. All three remain brave enough to stream on the Net in MP3, as well as other formats.
is the direct descendant of WDBS at Duke University, and also streams on the Web. So does WXYC
, the student station in Chapel Hill. In fact, WXYC has been streaming on the Net longer than any other station on Earth.
I'm sure some of the commercial stations are also fine. Don Curtis
, who owns a bunch of the big'ns around there, is another Real Radio Guy who hasn't caved in and sold out to Clear Channel. Bless him.
