More New York Radio News: KEXP Invades

Now THIS is what should be happening:

KEXP, the excellent Seattle Indie music station, announced today it will be taking over blocs of programming on 91.5 FM here in New York City, starting March 24th. The flagship program will be 3 hours morning drive-time followed by a simulcast of the Pacific morning show.

This is exactly the kind of programming radio needs today and it seems to only be able to come from public radio.

Update on WRXP: It's getting better. The concept is being fleshed out, and while it may not mean excellent music to these earbuds 24/7, it is turning out to be a noble effort. Also, they played Costello's "Oliver's Army". You can't beat that.
