So…I get in the car yesterday morning, and turn on the radio to discover that the Air America affliate…is gone! Zoinks!! At least a couple of those shows I like!

Turns out that 1690AM changed hands last month, and the new owner has moved the programming over from his other station, 1160AM (which has a lower-power license). 1160AM is “a mix of opera, R&B, jazz and arts criticism”…and not very much to my tastes.

Silver lining, though. Because I really don’t like broadcast radio all that much, but I hadn’t been given enough of a push to buy a new FM transmitter for my media player (my old one is battery-only [vs. having a car plug], and eats batteries for breakfast). Now I have said incentive! Now broadcast radio goes bye-bye. Thanks, Mr. Davis!
