Radio Plenitude


I spend a lot of time bitching about the state of the radio dial, but this American ether still has some life in it. New York now has a second Russian-language station, prompting the first to juice up its programming. San Francisco listeners can hear not one but two shows starring the strange and funny Hal "Dr. Hal" Robins. And new low-power community stations are getting ready to roll out in Shutesbury, Spokane, and Immokalee.
