The streets are littered with the bodies of men who tried... Or are those the ones who are "taxed to death?"

Re: “Tweet of the Week: Emmylou Harris Allegedly 'Blasts' Vanderbilt for Selling WRVU

Yes, please do. We can put it right beside the "Rob Gordon booed off the stage" hoax.

Re: “Books in Nashville: WPLN and The Economist Weigh In

We had real bookstores before WPLN swept in like thieves in the night and stole Wrvu right from under our unsuspecting noses!

Save Wrvu and bookstores and prosperity will follow, I'm just sure of it.

Re: “Let's Play King for a Day

Great balls of fire, do we honestly have to suffer from vanderpuppy bleats every time the word radio is mentioned? Yes, the grown-ups took away your play-pretty almost radio station and got a reasonable chunk of money for it. Now, if you really want to change that all back again and drop a house on Rob Gordon, may I suggest you emulate Thích Quảng Đức? Preferably somewhere where all the news crews can find you.

Re: “A sale to WPLN, new call letters and a new classical format spell the death of Vanderbilt's WRVU as we know it

I wonder how WRVU can maintain an online presence after Vandy's ITS just flushed the wrvu.org domain down the memory hole?

Re: “Breaking: WRVU 91 Rock Purchased by WPLN, Will Become Classical Station

Vandy ITS flushed wrvu.org down memory hole about 2300 on June 9.

In cyberspace, no one hears a domain die...

Re: “Breaking: WRVU 91 Rock Purchased by WPLN, Will Become Classical Station

@AndyAxel: You are correct, the number doesn't appear in the press release, my error. It's in the WPLN Blog: "Nashville Public Radio’s Board of Directors has decided to conduct a capital campaign to cover the $3,350,000 cost of acquiring 91.1 FM." http://j.mp/iCnmAE

WRT funding, I think you might be confusing PBS' "Viewers like you" with Public Radio's slogan, which I don't recall at the moment. But if you look at the station's 2007 financials http://j.mp/k4XyXV (the most recent posted) you'll see total revenues from listeners like me = $1,463,970 while corporate underwriting = $1,580,186. Listener support is a huge chunk of income, underwriting is even more. It's certainly not the money-maker that a ClearChannel/Citadel/Cumulus group might produce, but public radio is on a different mission.
