Podcast #225 – A Review of 2019 in Radio

Matthew Lasar starts off this episode by declaring that this was the year that his undergraduate students stopped listening to broadcast AM/FM radio. Then he admits, he’s nearly stopped, too. Find out why in this lively rundown of what was significant to radio in 2019.

On the other hand, our resident college radio expert Jennifer Waits reports that she’s listening to more terrestrial radio than ever, even as she notes that college broadcasters are making more podcasts, often focused on increasing the diversity of voices in audio media.

Paul Riismandel notes that the comeback of physical audio media is reaching a kind of apotheosis, as he’s received word of a new Minidisc Day coming our way in 2020, inspired by the likes of Record Store Day and Cassette Store Day. It seems all audio and radio tech is good as we close out the second decade of the 21st century.
