Clear Channel's Grip on College Radio

- Clear Channel Communications, owner of 1,200 stations across the United States, has been undermining the values of diversity, localism, and market completion within the music industry since the media policy wars in the early 2000s. Since then, the radio industry arguably has lost a significant amount of the authenticity it once had. The only exception is college radio: the last safe haven for musical integrity. The only facet of radio not owned and controlled by a major monopoly. Recently, however, Clear Channel has gone to bed with college radio stations across the country....   [tags: Media ]

College Radio Struggles to be Heard

- College Radio Struggles to be Heard “Ten watts of fury,” screams current WBCN nighttime deejay Deek, as he sits in his Boylston street studio. Ten watts, which is low by today’s radio standards, certainly doesn’t describe the Infinity-owned rock station that hands him his bi-weekly paycheck. However, it does describe the place where he, along with so many other deejays, got their start on the road to a professional radio career -- college radio. Less than two miles away from WBCN stands the center of Deek’s on-air jokes....   [tags: School Entertainment Essays]

The Symbolic Meaning of the Radio in The Enormous Radio

- The Symbolic Meaning of the Radio in The Enormous Radio       Many authors use the personification of inanimate objects to symbolize the feelings and expressions of their characters. One example of this is in John Cheever’s short story, "The Enormous Radio." Although critics argue that the characteristics of the radio are the opposite of those of Jim and Irene Westcott, the radio actually reflects the couple’s life. Even though in the beginning of the story the Westcotts’ old radio is outdated and constantly malfunctioning, it has the same innocence and simplicity as the couple....   [tags: Enormous Radio Essays]

- Hypocrisy in The Enormous Radio       In the short story, "The Enormous Radio," by John Cheever, the radio acts as a wake up call for Jim and Irene Westcott.

Is College A Good Fit?

- In the 21st century, if an individual decides to make a major commitment or resolution, they have the utmost support from their peers and family members.

Linda Banks-Santilli (2015) claims that first-generation students apply to a single college and without the help of a parent (para. 13). Although Banks-Santilli does not say so directly, she assumes that the students can not afford multiple application fees and the students are unsure on how to determine which college is a good fit, as their parents have not taken them on a college tour....   [tags: University, Higher education, Education, College]

The Positive And Negative Implications On Free College Education

- I chose the concept of free college education as my topic because the price of school has been on my mind a lot lately. College is expensive, and attending a private university is even more expensive. I’m lucky enough to have my dad pay for my education, but for a lot of my friends that is not the case. I have seen through their lives how college funding has impacted their college education. I have one friend who is very intelligent, but chose to go to a community college in our home town instead of a big university because of funding....   [tags: Higher education, College, University]
