One of the many factors isolating Albany from the New York media market is that Fred Dicker’s radio show, on which much news is made, operates on a weak-signal local AM station whose Web site has capacity for only a few outside listeners.
Thus, this morning:
Fud31: mario cuomo coming up next on my radio show
benobserver: you need a stronger signal.
benobserver: it’s always taken by staffers who log in at ridiculous hours on
benobserver: a scandal!
Fud31: i agree!
Fud31: write something nice about that on your blog….call on wrow to expand access…
benobserver: actually between your show and my blog
benobserver: we consume a ridiculous amount of gov resources.
Fud31: ha ha
UPDATE: A reader writes: “As a former government staffer who used to log in at ridiculous hours, I can report that is no longer necessary. There are now many more slots, and a person who works at a desk in NYC can log in when he gets to the office and listen away.”
