That's probably the funniest thing I've read today. Thanks for the laugh!

No problem. Pacifica has always been a strange beast, marred by infighting, constant management turnover, and overall turmoil, especially since the 1990s when they realized that their two radio stations in Berkeley and (especially) New York City would be worth tens of millions of dollars if they sold them (the other  stations they own lay in the noncommercial band and aren't worth nearly as much).

New York's station, WBAI, is flat broke. They lost their studio and are at the point where they may have no choice BUT to sell it.

It's what happens when hippies get mugged by reality.

Some budding libertarians working there.

I checked The Onion to make sure this was real.

Out of curiousity, I caught an episode of Lindsay (Lohan) on OWN last evening.  Reading this piece left me feeling very much the same as watching that show--clasping my head thinking "make it stop!"
