Out here in the boonies, I am limited to radio stations.
The San Antonio “Classic Rock” station, as they proclaim, plays mostly 80s rock, and even with that, their library only contains 300 or so songs. To be fair, they do play stuff from the 70s; over and over and over and over again…but for the most part, I do not partake, unless I am in the mood for Journey…and that never happens…or Queen, or Tom Petty, or The Eagles, or GNR, big hair bands…moving on…
So, we listen a lot to the local classical station out of SA; KPAC, a TPR supported institution. I use “institution” because they in no way act like a public station. Obviously, they get funding from the Feds somewhere, but however much they get, it ain’t enough.
I always thought that Public Radio meant ‘no commercials’. These folks give plugs for every Tom, Dick, and Harry 2-bit business that makes a donation.
And that’s not the worst part; this liberal backed station continues the fear mongering of getting vaxxed and wearing masks…yep, and they have “doctors” give a blurb speech of why the vax is good for you, and how masks prevent the spread of the….ready for this?….The Pandemic…
Every year in October, they have a membership drive, and a couple years ago, they were hell bent to get $800,000 in public donations…
Well they got their money, and they moved their offices to a bigger, better place. You oughta see the staff they have, and I figure everyone is making tens of thousands of bucks per annum.
Now, they push to have older folks leave their money and estates to their station in their will.
In addition, they now push for listeners to donate their cars.
They also prefer a monthly tithe instead of a one time donation…
Gimme, gimme, gimme…the motto of liberals.
My guess is that the payroll is very lop sided with unnecessary “management” and “workers”, and the management are atop the totem pole over there.
The DJs are very well versed in the music they play…
One sad woman has a program called “Petrie Dish”. Basically a broadcast that purports fear mongering about the Kung Flu.
Unbelievable; well maybe not so much.
Perhaps I spend too much time inside.
The Monkey Pox will not kill you, and the pictures they show, are worst case scenarios.
Just my opinion.
