AM Radio. It has been around since dirt was new. For decades, people's lives were made whole through radio in the same way that television did and now these days, the internet. AM radio brought us Dragnet, the Second World War and then eventually introduced us to the Beatles. AM radio was the driving force for many years.
First came television, the industry feared AM would be the end. It wasn't.
Then came FM radio, the industry feared AM would be the end. It wasn't.

Fifteen years ago, an amazing radio technology was first introduced. Why do so few people know about it and why isn’t its use very widespread?

When you review through the old history cards of various radio and television stations, you come across many of the experiments in the broadcast radio and television art that have taken place over the years.

One piece of advice that I have been giving LPFM stations for quite awhile is to remind them that as renewals are coming up, they need to make sure they are complying with the rules because their dialmates are likely taking notes.
Now with the Petition to Deny period open on the first wave of broadcast renewals, we are starting to see the first signs of that note-taking that I warned about.

No. It’s not because of the NAB or NPR. It’s because of the LCRA.
Greetings from a very hot weekend. The heat index right now is 109. It’s Saturday. The Yankees are up 9-nil over the Rockies at the end of 4 innings. It’s just too hot to do much else. Welcome to the Riverton summer from Hell.
