KRAB was the fourth-ever community radio station in the U.S., serving Seattle, WA from 1962 to 1984. Like any community station, it broadcast thousands of hours of original and important programming during that time, documenting important social movements and voices not heard, or not heard clearly, in mainstream media.
Former volunteer and board member Chuck Reinsch is on a mission to preserve as much of the station’s legacy as possible. He created and administers the KRAB Archives website to house airchecks, recordings and other artifacts so that they’re accessible to the world. Chuck joins the show to discuss his efforts and shed light on the KRAB’s vital place in history.
Then we catch up with news about the nation’s largest radio owner, iHeartMedia, which just declared bankruptcy. It’s not a story about the decline of radio, but instead the story of a disastrous business model built on ownership deregulation and consolidation.Show Notes:
