I hope they make it

Word is that Sirius/XM may be filing for Chapter 11. I hope they survive.

Word is that some Des Moines radio stations are switching over to being mere pipes for programming generated nationally, with localized commercials and announcements inserted to give the impression that there's somebody actually there. Oh well, it's not as if I actually listen to any commercial radio other than talk radio any more--when KFMG got sold and turned into all mindless metal all the time, I was done with it. (Happily, KFMG is now on the web! Even better, they're on the air as a low power community station at 99.1 MHz--w00t!)
