I recently revisited the Ken Burns PBS Special Documentary “Empire of the Air”.

Radio’s beginnings in America are truly amazing. The stories of technology triumph and despair, fought with personal vendettas have all the ingredients of a technical Soap Opera.

History indeed repeats itself. Remember the battle for AM Stereo? What about our present day struggle with HD? Or Satellite delivery?

I doubt if our present day radio technology will have the likes of Ken Burn’s making a documentary about what we as an industry are going through…but I think you have to agree we have an interesting reality show script.
