I…

Local radio still entertains and informs, and maybe can help in our neighborhood revitalization

Lighting speed internet connections at home and smart phones becoming more ubiquitous than ever, the curtain has fallen on the age of waiting for… anything. Today we enjoy nearly instantaneous streams of information always available at our fingertips, literally. But at times it feels the convenience and availability of information makes us hyper-aware of the world around us, a state from which we can’t easily revert.  Playing devil’s advocate for the ‘smart’ forms of all communication and…
