Solo

The entire How Radio Was Done series comes to an end with this five hour edition wrapping up1989. With a smirk at radio longevity, we cover multiple stations being sold, closed, transformed and reformatted in the increasingly corporate radio environment of ‘89, while Howard Stern debates a listener on obscenity, Crosley Bendix reviews style itself, dialog with the Russians and a melting Soviet Union continue to dominate politics, Jazz and Hip Hop evolve into Techno and House, the razor tape, /”Puffy sleeves,/” and Negativland performs /”You Must Choose/” at the Knitting Factory.

5 Hours.
