You can read in this week's issue (online right here) about the untimely demise of Chris and Greg Crofton's "The Best of Bread." As you'll see, the Croftons made certain claims about the nature of their dismissal as community DJs, and WRVU overseers had certain responses. Having heard both sides and taken each with a grain of salt, I can tell you that the dismissal was due to a zero-tolerance equipment policy over a webcam. "The Best of Bread" will not be back--at least not on WRVU--so we've asked that the Croftons share the final episode with us via the Cream. Read on.
Due to our limited time and space, I was unfortunately unable to delve into the story of Tony Youngblood and his removal from WRVU. Youngblood's show, "~ORE~," was dismissed after having local legend Dave Cloud guest DJ. Cloud (surprise!) made some comments of a sexually promiscuous ilk. While Youngblood claims the comments were censored for radio broadcast, he says they remained uncensored in the online archives. As we all know, Internet archives are outside the operational realm of the FCC, so that shouldn't have been a problem. At least not according to Youngblood.
And so it goes. The world keeps spinning, and WRVU keeps right on broadcasting. Some great shows still remain, and others are never to be heard again. Hi ho.
Below you'll find the last episode of "The Best of Bread" in five parts; each part is an MP3. According to Chris Crofton, you'll be able to pick up a hard copy at Grimey's or The Groove on Thursday--and paying for copies means showing your appreciation monetarily. So yes, this is ostensibly the final episode of the Croftons' show. That is, unless it proves to be a popular feature and we can talk Greg and Chris into recording podcasts for the Cream.
