We shall wait for your inking, Phil....and then planthe party from there.
Looks like the latest is Alan's retirement has been pushed back to October 12th.
I wonder if all the Reserves called up for Iraq know that they will have to
work an extra year to get their pension benefits on their jobs. Seems NY
State anyway isn't abiding by the Veterans' Reemployment Act that says no
reduction in pension will be made when Reserves are called up.

Ryegrass
Rollers MAY have in Leesburg would be on that Sunday (Aug. 31) not
Saturday
as I said earlier. I'm terribly sorry for causing all this back and forth

As it is, the Leesburg gig has not been inked in yet, so we should
hang
tight until I find out if it's definite or not.

Cathy,

It does sound interesting. I recall reading on the Washington radio/tv site (dcrtv.com) that there is a station in the Washington area that is a test bed for this technology. I don't recall which one. It is the station that sometimes airs CSPAN audio as I recall.

Nick Henry (current WJMA part timer) recently got an XM Radio satellite receiver. The audio is incredibly good. Better than CD quality to these old ears.

Headline: Static be gone: Radio goes digital
Byline: Rick Dearborn Special to The Christian Science Monitor
Date: 06/05/2003

This summer's biggest radio hit may not be a pop single, but a new
service.

When new digital radio - or HD Radio, named after its cousin HDTV (high
definition television) - comes to US stores in August, it could change
the whole soundscape of the nation. Formerly lower-quality AM radio
will sound like stereo FM. FM will sound more like a compact disc.

As local radio stations put the new service on the air, listeners with
HD-equipped radio receivers can expect to hear an immediate improvement.

"On AM, the improvement will be startling. On FM even listeners with
'educated ears' will have a hard time detecting the difference between
HD Radio and their favorite CD," says Andy Laird of the Journal
Broadcast Group.

But while many stations are installing and testing the new system for
between $100,000 and $500,000 apiece, some broadcasters aren't sold on
the idea. "We took a good look at [HD Radio] and decided that we could
not justify the cost of conversion at the present time for any of our
22 stations," says Dennis Orcutt of Renda Broadcasting in Pittsburgh.
"[We're going] to hold off and see how the industry and consumers take
to this new technology."

As the nation's oldest wireless medium, radio has been woven into the
fabric of everyday life since its advent in 1903. Today, with HD
Radio's expanded capacities, new uses are only beginning to be
envisioned.

HD Radio works like this: To listen to the service, consumers need new
- and relatively inexpensive - radio equipment adaptable to both the HD
system and old analog radio. Then, when they tune in to a station
providing the signal, at first they'll hear the old analog signal.
Then, after about seven seconds, the signal switches over to HD and
"the sound suddenly expands out in all directions," Mr. Laird says.

Because the HD Radio signal is concealed within the AM and FM radio
programming already being broadcast over local radio stations, if
listeners opt not to buy the new HD radios their old ones will continue
to work just fine. Only at some future point, if HD Radio stations
decide to go completely digital, could analog radios become obsolete.

Unlike satellite radio, which charges listeners a subscription fee, the
only cost to HD Radio listeners will be for new radio gear.
Broadcasters will pick up the rest of the tab, in the form of new
broadcasting equipment and licensing fees. A Columbia, Md., company
called iBiquity will be the sole provider of the technology, which was
approved by the Federal Communications Commission last October.

"Terrestrial radio is really the only remaining medium not to be all
digital," says Dave Salemi, iBiquity's vice president of marketing. "HD
Radio now propels radio into the digital age" both in terms of sound
quality and possible communications with other new technologies. New
radios coming out this summer, for example, will include an
informational display showing song title and artist, or other text
messages such as emergency alerts.

Second-generation FM radios will have even more features, including
on-demand local traffic and weather updates automatically sent to car
receivers. Additional data channels could even tie car radios to a
Global Positioning System receiver that would supply information about
restaurants, hotels, and other attractions within blocks of the car's
location at any given moment.

"The future on-demand audio function will also allow listeners to
repeat songs they just heard, or even play the end of a program they
missed when they had to leave their car for work," says Mr. Salemi.

Still, broadcasters say, there are definite drawbacks. The high cost of
installation may put the service out of reach for smaller stations. And
as with all new technologies, there are kinks to work out: Since
January, some broadcasters have said the sound quality of the AM system
is not up to snuff, and have put their plans to install HD Radio on
hold until the issue is resolved.

What's more, initially AM stations will be allowed to broadcast HD
Radio only during the day, due to potential interference with other
stations at night. Though this hurdle is likely to be overcome as the
AM system is refined, and though higher audio quality across the board
may level the playing field between AM and competing FM stations, many
small-station owners are still holding, with Sam Stemm of tiny WBGZ-AM
in Alton, Ill. "My attitude right now is wait and see," he says.

I don't know why, but I was thinking about the various slogans used
on the air at WJMA. I know I don't remember them all, but here's a
start.

The first one I remember was "Your Information Stations". Later
"Radio Orange" was adopted as the official ID, but various
identifiers or positioning statements were tacked on the front end.
There was "Central Virginia Daily News", "America's Most Popular
Music", "At the Foot of the Blue Ridge", for sports: "All The Good
Sports", "Z96.7" and "Central Virginia's Hit Music FM" in the post
Digby era. I think there was "Jamin' 96.7" when Carl Hurlebaus was
the owner. Were you around then Cameron?

There was a slogan we adopted one summer while Arch was on vacation.
It didn't last a day after his return. Remember "The Only Radio
Station You'll Ever Need"? We thought it pretty well described our
full service approach. Arch was firmly against it saying it was just
not true. You might want to or need to listen to another station
sometimes. Where did that on come from? I think "All the Good Sports"
was borrowed from WBZ, Boston.

Under the current owner ship there has been "Country Mix 96". "Your
Place in the Country" is the current slogan.

Let's kick this one around a while and arrive at a comprehensive list.

The FCC vote

Les <grandmananer@...>
 

My brother forwaded this message about the FCC vote yesterday:

Dear MoveOn member,

On Monday, Michael Powell and his allies on the Federal Communications
Commission voted 3-2 to authorize media consolidation. It's a sad day
for democracy -- this decision will place the bulk of our country's
newspapers and TV stations in even fewer hands. Diversity, fairness,
and competition will decline as a result.

Luckily, democracy's awful resilient. Congress has the power to
overturn these rule changes. More than 100 members of the House and
roughly 20 members of the Senate asked the FCC not to approve these
rule changes at this time. The members of Congress were right to be
concerned, and they have the authority to act on those concerns now by
introducing legislation that will undo these changes. Our friends at
Common Cause have made it easy to contact your Representatives and
Senators and let them know that you want the FCC's rules repealed.

You can take action now at:
http://causenet.commoncause.org/afr/issues/alert/?alertid=2446521

Thus far, we've had a truly remarkable campaign. Here are some of the
highlights:

* The Stop Media Monopoly petition now has just under 200,000 signers
-- one of the largest public statements ever made on this issue.
Combined with comments from members of the NRA, Common Cause, the
Consumer Federation of America, and other groups, the FCC has
received over 700,000 comments on this issue. As of last count,
about 1 in 1,000 of these supported the rule change. So the FCC
clearly knows where the public stands.

* So many MoveOn and Common Cause members called and emailed the FCC
on Friday that their voicemail system and web site went down. CNN
covered the story.

* MoveOn members raised over $180,000 to pay for print and TV ads,
which we ran in partnership with Common Cause and Free Press. The
ads played an instrumental role in making newspapers and TV
stations cover the rule change: the day after they were launched,
the Washington Post discussed them in a front-page story. George
Stephanopoulos showed our TV ad to Michael Powell and Senator John
McCain on Sunday, and grilled them on the media issues. They also
attracted the attention of the New York Times, ABC World News
Tonight, CNN, MSNBC, Newshour with Jim Lehrer, and even The
Guardian in the UK -- and that's only a partial list. Common Cause
President Chellie Pingree and I were both invited on to cable news
shows to debate the issue.

It's pretty clear where Americans stand on this issue: no one wants a
few big companies controlling their access to news and entertainment.
Thank you for being a part of the first stage of an incredible
campaign, and stay tuned for the next steps.

Sincerely,
--Carrie, Eli, Joan, Peter, Wes, and Zack

Re: Catherine Richardson's Passing

Echoing earlier comments, Catherine was a class act. Working at WINA for
several years, and being a guest in her (and Larry's home), I was able to see her
in action with other people. She never thought so much of herself that she
was afraid to get her hands dirty at the station or to help out wherever needed
(the newsroom, sales, or even checking on how our families were doing).
Catherine was a good foil to Larry and Colin Ross and helped bring a sense of
family and earthiness to my time at WINA. Those of us who met and worked with her
were indeed fortunate.

John,

Thank you for sending this information. I spoke to Catherine frequently during the early Virignia Network days when their broadcast originated at WINA. Catherine was also the "keeper of the school closing codes" for dozens of schools in Central Virginia. She prepared and distributed the list to all interested stations. I offered to help with the labor or pay part of the costs, but she said she enjoyed doing it. She, and Larry, were a class act.

Catharine Richardson

Catharine Gubisch Richardson, 80, of Charlottesville, died Sunday,
June 1, 2003, at her home in University Village after a lengthy
illness.

Born September 21, 1922, in Washington, D.C., she was the daughter
of Carl Gubisch and Mary Gertrude Farrall Gubisch.

She attended the Academy of the Holy Cross and the Washington School
for Secretaries. Before and during World War II, Mrs. Richardson
served as personal secretary to Secretary of State Edward R.
Stettinius at the Lend-Lease Administration and the Department of
State. She accompanied him to the San Francisco Conference that
drafted the United Nations charter.

In 1970, Catharine and her late husband Laurence E. Richardson,
purchased Charlottesville Broadcasting, which operated stations
WINA, WQMZ and WKAV. She succeeded her husband as President of
Charlottesville Broadcasting. She was a supporter of numerous causes
including D.C. Home Rule, children's education and welfare, and
several local charities.

She is survived by four children, Laura L. Richardson of Huntington,
W.Va., Amy C. Richardson of Cleveland, Ohio, James L. Richardson of
Earlysville, Va., and Matthew L. Richardson of McLean, Va.; two
daughters-in-law, Geneva M. Richardson of Earlysville and Liina M.
Richardson of McLean; two sisters, Mary Elizabeth Rattigan of Santa

I'd love to get to a WJMA party if I can. How appropriate that we could
gather in the shadow of Pat Watson's memorial tree. She'll certainly be there in
spirit! Count me in to help financially. Never was much of a cook and I have
not improved with age.

Best to all,
