A Couple of Radio Comments

I made my yearly donation to WFUV.  I did it today since all donations up to $35,000 will be matched.  As WCBS-FM has changed WFUV has become my #1 terrestrial station.  60s music is now rarely played as CBSFM is trying to appeal to an audience of 25-54 year olds.  I don't mind listening to hits from the 70s and 80s, but I feel that their playlist is too tight.  But 101.1 has been consistantly #2 in the ratings so they must be doing something right.  I still would describe WFUV eclectic as they play music from different genres.  They certainly play more Dylan music than any other FM station.

The New York Islanders announced the WNYE (91.5 FM) would be joining WRHU (Hofstra) and WRCN (eastern Long Island) in broadcasting their games.  It is disappointing that a major NYC station did not pick up their games as this is their first season in the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn.
