Podcast #82 – Busting Myths & Counting Charts
2 days ago
Conventional wisdom says young people don’t listen to the radio. Jennifer Waits talks to two college broadcasters from KUOZ-LP at the University of the Ozarks who bust that myth. She also takes us on a tour of a new community LPFM, KPSQ-LP, located in a hotel in Fayetteville, AR.
But first, Paul and Jennifer discuss more troubling news about CMJ, the oldest and most prominent music charting service in noncommercial radio, and Jennifer reviews some newer alternative music charts ready to fill in the gap.
Big thanks go to our Patreon supporters who helped fund Jennifer Waits’s travels to Arkansas where she was able to visit stations like KUOZ-LP and KPSQ-LP. Support from listeners like you help us produce the program and share stories of community and college radio that would otherwise go unreported.
