Stop The Presses! Cincinnati Public Radio WGUC Programs American Music Suppressed By The America Hating Apparatchiks At Classical WETA-FM

On National Arts Advocacy Day 2007, the New Classical WETA-FM, in the Nation's Capital, programs absolutely no American classical music (0%).


Public Classical Radio WGUC (90.9 FM), in Cincinnati, Ohio, being proud to be an American classical music station, programs almost 10% American classical music [corrected].

Guess which American public radio station is under the direction of Sharon Percy Rockefeller, who is the wife of Jay Rockefeller, the Democratic Senator from the proud state of West Virginia [Montani semper liberi (Mountaineers are always free)]?

Once upon a time, Americans were idealistic about their young classical music culture and turned with enthusiasm to the new media of radio and television.
