Well, for anybody reading this...

I'm not pretentious enough to call it an "era", but whatever it is, it's coming to a close - WQNA, my scrappy little radio station in the cornfields of Central Illinois, has been put up for sale.

And we've got a pretty good idea who's going to buy it: Our main competition in the commercial-free, public-airwaves market, who have said that they're going to get rid of all local programming (and DJ's) and convert WQNA into a completely automated, satellite-feed station.

Whichh raises the question of "How can a station that claims to be a non-profit benefit from getting rid of the only other non-profit station in the area ?" -

But those are the kinds of questions that management doesn't like have asked - Especially not by ornery DJ's who, with their finely-honed sense for bullshit, frequently tend to ask.

Ah, well; It Was Fun While It Lasted. We don't know how long we have, and it may well be that nobody will ever tell us, so that we can't even plan farewell shows. So, all we can do is keep plugging away until somebody actually pulls the plug. Which makes me think that here's my opportunity to cut loose and p[lay the stuff that I've always figured was too scary for ANY potential listener to tolerate. If I gotta go, I'm going out with a bang.
