Letter to the Chico Enterprise-Record (CA): Pig slaughtered by right-wing talk radio
May 16, 2010
Well, now they have overstepped their bounds. You would think that they would be content with dominating the AM band with the likes of KPAY (Clearchannel Inc.) and over 1,000 AM stations nationwide, but now Reich radio has gone FM, squashing a great radio station at the same time.
KPIG radio, 96.7, which played great country, bluegrass and alternative music, was squashed by someone named Vince Shadrick from an outfit called Radio Chico, under the umbrella of Mapleton Radio Holdings, in favor of more "right wing fair and balanced talk radio."
None of these names have a local address, phone number or e-mail.
Could this be an insidious arm of someone like Rupert Murdoch (Fox News, the Wall Street Journal and other right wing, divisive and untrustworthy "news" outfits) under a different name?
Meanwhile, those of us who enjoy good alternative noncommercial music are left holding the bag.
