Coming in to the station and realizing I have just minutes to get a newscast on the air and I can't get the computer to put together stories then watching as the clock goes past the top of the hour and the newscast isn't on...the settings are different stations I have worked at and they never look quite the same as I remember but the outcome is always the same...

If a station really wanted to find a good program and host there are plenty who are capable. I agree this sounds like typical corporate radio nonsense. Hold them to their commitment (not that they actually will be.)

The station was a bit of an oddity in the beginning because it was initially funded by the students association like similar stations at universities for example CFMU at McMaster. When the student's association felt it was not in their business plan to run a station anymore it was fortunate the college saw the value in keeping a functioning broadcast entity on campus. Les has been through many challenges as manager. Congratulations to him and all the long time volunteers for continuing to keep the station going. I will confess I was the station manager who was successful in getting the first license so I am always happy to see good news regarding the station at Mohawk.

How are the producers dealing with the issue of paying royalties for the music they play? Is there some kind of license for online stations? I have been away from following the intricacies of licensing and music rights use for quite some time.
