Buying Local

There’s local programming, and then there’s local programming. A station in Raleigh North Carolina has started an all-local all-the-time format, playing only music by local bands. “WBZB went on the air July 15. Its signal is so weak the station can be picked up in the car only in a small area because power lines interfere with it. It can only be heard in parts of Raleigh, and it broadcasts on the Web.”
