Ken Levine on Terrestrial Radio

Writer, director, producer and broadcaster Ken Levin wrote for some of the most popular shows in the past few decades including MASH, Cheers, Simpsons, Everybody Loves Raymond, and Becker to name a few. But he also writes an excellent blog that I check out regularly.

He is a life-long radio fan, and often writes about it, but the other day he wrote a devastating rip job on terrestrial radio called "Terrestrial Radio Sucks". I hate to say it, but he makes some excellent points.

He obviously follows the business closely. This is part of his incredibly impressive resume: Ken has also been the radio/TV play-by-play voice of the Baltimore Orioles, Seattle Mariners, San Diego Padres, and has hosted Dodger Talk on the Dodger Radio Network.
