    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

  • iTunes RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

  • Comments RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for global comments (any comment made to the board); each entry has a seperate comments feed, too

Merger Would End Satellite Radio’s Rivalry

From The New York Times: Merger Would End Satellite Radio’s Rivalry

From the article: “The nation’s two satellite radio services, Sirius and XM, announced plans yesterday to merge, a move that would end their costly competition for radio personalities and subscribers but that is also sure to raise antitrust issues.”

XM subscribers are screwed, with Mel taking over the programming of the combined system…assuming the merger goes through.

More on the passing of Hal Stone

Filed under: General, Old-Time Radio — Charlie Summers @ 10:36 am

Dorothy (Hal’s wife) asked me to let you know she appreciates all the good wishes that have been pouring in. Hal’s wishes were that no services of any kind be held; in the sincere hope that this does not violate these wishes, I hope anyone interested stops by Lois Culver’s IRC chatroom this evening, 8:00 pm EST, 5:00 PST where we’ll hold an informal celebration of Hal; bring your own bottle and stories. For information, contact me via the “Contact the Webmaster” form over on the sidebar (and forgive that I’ll be sending out a form letter with instructions, it’s understandably a bit busy around here today).

Instead of flowers, Dorothy has requested donations be made to the American Heart Association’s Research Fund. Condolences should be sent to:

L.O.F. Communications
Attn. Mrs. Dorothy Stone
P.O. Box 587
York, PA 17405-0587

I will forward them off to her twice a week.

I will be posting my personal remembrances of Hal later; possibly tomorrow, as I’m working today to gather together the photos, audio, and video I want to use to show you the Hal Stone I knew.
