89.3 FM: A NEW HOPE

Minnesota Public Radio to Launch New Music Station in the Twin Cities
A new, diverse mix of music for listeners who have grown up in the digital generation

"Our staff will be hanging out in clubs, searching the Internet, reading the music magazines and streaming music from around the globe to find the best music for you. We're going to take the work out of finding music, and put the fun back in. Just turn on your radio."

For some reason I have this image of an MPR investigative reporter lurking in the shadows of the Triple Rock, scribbling notes like mad. "What is this strange music? You kids, with your... your pink hair and your moblogs (is that how you say it?) – How refreshing!"

But hey, they've got former Radio K and REV 105 alum Steve Nelson at the helm, so I expect great things. I'm imagining a cross between Radio K and what Cities 97 was like a long time ago. (Thanks, Mike!)

More media concentration. It's just as bad when in the hands of non-commercial folk as it is when it's Clear Channel.

Large corporate entities can never take risks. Too Much is At Stake.

Free the Northfield 89.3

Being a St. Olaf grad, I will very much miss Classical 89.3 WCAL. It's not going to be the same.

Just to clarify: It was MPR or Christian programming.
