The Cu*%$nt

Minnesota Public Radio and The Current are my perennial betes noire. Their hyper-commercial, mercenary approach to public radio flies in the face of everything I like about listener-supported media. Now City Pages reports that 89.3 is shrinking its playlist, preventing its DJs (already a bunch of myopic canon-wankers) from deviating from the hits.

Says Mark Wheat with typical condescension:

We are expanding the average listener’s playlist even though we might have tightened our own.

Please, if you’re pledging this year, give it to a worthy tenant of your public airwaves.
