Just when we thought the Franken FM era might be over for good, the FCC is granting “temporary special authority” to an LPTV 6 channel in San Jose, Calif., To maintain its analog signal – heard on the FM dial – on-air during the transition of its video signal to digital. We review this news, as well as a proposal before the FCC to increase low-power FM stations to 250 watts.

We also take a look at the latest issue of The Wire magazine, dedicated to radio in broadcast and internet form. Dedicated to “Adventures in Sound and Music,” the journal examines stations that share experimental and forward-looking sounds, highlighting Radio Survivor favorites like Wave Farm and Pirate Radio Sound Map, alongside community stations in Southeast Asia.
