Repeater Radio

My old mentor, the radio program director Paul Drew, used to tell me about an idea he had where a campus would be built for a national radio company in Southern California -- he cited the weather and abundance of talent for his choice of the location (not in that order).

PD (as I called him) believed that great radio could be done in one location allowing for many economies of scale and yet providing customized local programming to individual stations in their markets.

I understand he took the idea to a couple of CEOs at the time -- back in the 1990s -- and received no traction for the concept.

Funny, isn't&hellip
