Roundup of the week's radio news about radio waves. The Federal Communication Commission reopened in the United States this week, after 16 days without an enforcement division tracking pirate radio. Non-profit organizations applying for low-power FM stations during the FCC's Oct. 15-29 application window may be bewildered by the process that was interrupted by the shutdown, and this show features reports from Radiosurvivor.com, Broadcast Law Blog, and REC Networks about the LPFM application window in the U.S. SWLing.com considers the "record" pirate radio activity during the shutdown on shortwave bands. Meanwhile, Pacifica Radio considers leasing out WBAI's airwaves in New York City, the House stenographer shouts out on C-Span during the shutdown vote, and Edward Snowden discusses his leaks in Moscow. Plus, this week in radio history with Nixon's anti-drug song edict, and Groucho Marx. Author Douglas Kahn is interviewed by Galen Joseph-Hunter about his new book, "Earth Sound Earth Signal," a study of energies in aesthetics and the arts, from the birth of modern communications in the nineteenth century to the global transmissions of the present day.
