On this edition of the mediageek radioshow we explore the legacy of profiteering and greed that underlies the massive consolidation that ruined local radio over the last thirteen years, along with the overleveraging that handicapped satellite radio before it even got out of the gate. Radio scholar John Anderson of DIYmedia.net joins to sort out this seedy history.
The mediageek radioshow is a weekly program dedicated to the celebration of grassroots and independent media, along with the critical examination of our media environment.
mediageek is produced at WNUR, Chicago's Sound Experiment, and is heard live every Thursday at 9 PM at 89.3 FM and online.
