Let's talk radio. I love KUAT. And KUAZ. But I do not understand why Arizona has four overlapping, duplicative public radio dynasties. Tucson, Phoenix, Flagstaff and Yuma (Yuma? yes, Yuma) all have NPR stations with duplicative jazz, classical, local news and NPR coverage. KJZZ Phoenix is on the air at 98.9 in Tucson. KUAZ = KJZZ = KPUB/Flag = KAWC/Yuma, and on the classical side, and KBAQ=KNAU=KUAT. Clearly, there are models where a statewide public radio system can preserve local programming and content while serving statewide audiences. But is Bach different on KUAT, KNAU or KBAQ? Is Terry Gross better relayed out of Yuma? Consolidation would free up resources for the local content that we crave and deserve.
Independent country radio is alive and well in Texas.
PVK is right. You can be driving under the influence with a .06 BAC. Journalists must get this straight.
The .08 "limit" is nothing more than the level at which intoxication is legally presumed. A cop does not have to provide any evidence other than the lawfully-obtained .08 reading to establish the legal presumption of drunken driving. This presumption can be rebutted (faulty equipment, etc.)
It is just flat incorrect to say there is a .08 legal limit for BAC.
Buy this book or I'll shoot the marmot.
Bring back Adams and Scholz!
Just get an Android and a car adapter. Hundreds of oldies stations are streaming. Let American commercial radio rot.
I'm surprised the newspaper keeps missing the fact that oldies radio can be listened to on any computer, and on any iPhone/Android phone.
KOOL from Phoenix, or KEarth from LA (70s oldies) can be streamed. Listen to them in my car, with an Android phone and a $40 wireless adapter that pulls in Bluetooth and sends out FM to my car radio.
Even better, K-Earth HD 2 from Los Angeles has NO COMMERCIALS (yet). It plays 50s doo-wap and 60s top 40.
Plus, there are dozens of commercial-freeradio stations around the world that stream oldies. There are dozens in iTunes - all free, all available for Win, Mac, iPhone, Android.
I'm sorry to see Alan jobless. But the American radio industry has shot itself in its foot.
