Rant from Riverton: So, who killed the radio star?

In response to Dick Taylor's blog "Automation Killed The Radio Star" and the subsequent discussion on The Broadcast Club on Facebook.

REC-FM joins Pacifica Network

Pacifica Network programming is coming soon to REC-FM as a result of a new affiliation agreement.

REC-FM, a showcase of community radio programming for non-commercial LPFM, full-service, Part 15 and internet-only stations will soon be airing Pacifica programming in addition to programming being provided from other sources.   REC-FM is operated by Riverton Radio Project Association, a non-profit media organization founded by Michelle and Eva Bradley to provide noncommercial educational community radio to the Maryland Eastern Shore.  

Statement of REC Networks: October 3rd's test for emergency alerting at the national (Presidential) level

First of all, to be clear; that in this statement, I am not taking any position on President Donald J. Trump; neither for or against.  What I am taking a position on is the trivializing of [today's] nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System and Wireless Emergency Alert test.

REC to FCC: LPFM should be considered an "FM broadcast station"

With the passage of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, Congress is allowing "FM broadcast stations" and FM translators access to reimbursement for certain expenses accured as a result of the repacking of television stations.  In MB Docket 18-214, the Commission reached a tentative conclusion that LPFM stations were considered as "FM broadcast stations" for the purpose of enacted law and therefore should be permitted to seek reimbursement as appropriate.
