Fybush's column today at http://www.fybush.com/nerw.html
mentions the "high-powered pirate"
at 87.7 that got an FCC raid 2 weeks ago (Raid! I always think of the cartoon ads for a certain bug spray when I hear that word. Raid kills bugs dead; FCC kills unauthorized signals). He says the station
told the Jamaica Star that due to their "tremendous success" they were able to simulcast their
"digital Internet radio" on terrestrial radio, but now they're sticking to the Net. Of course if they
had a license they'd still be offering their programming on terrestrial radio as well. Putting a shine
on a sneaker!

>>As most independent radio stations in America which operate on terrestrial radio have come to realize Federal Communications Commission rules and regulations are designed to make it almost impossible for independent broadcasters to succeed....As a result, independent radio is all but non-existent on terrestrial radio.
