This is a personal and regional note but reflects the "radio biz"...if a station cannot turn a profit, then its survival is questionable. The arts do suffer. KXTR [Kansas City, Missouri] began broadcasting about 47 years ago. I used to listen to it on a palm-sized, battery run portable FM radio on my way to undergraduate life. Things have changed over the years: Records on turntables to computer files; a sweet signal on the FM band to a low power spot on the far end of the AM band. Death was expected. I understand that the entire music library will be donated to KANU [University of Kansas]. And the very best to old friend Patrick Neas...a champion of the arts.

KXTR Classic 1660 Halloween special

Patrick Neas is KXTR's Program Director and Morning Show Host from 6am to10am, Monday through Friday. Patrick has been waking up Kansas City area music lovers for more than ten years with a lively mix of uplifting and inspiring classical music, traffic, news, weather and interviews with creative and artistic personalities. All of this plus Patrick's offbeat observations make for a highly entertaining morning show. Because smart people need morning radio too!

Tune in this Friday for a full day of Halloween related classical music and a reading of Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven" by Basil Rathbone. All classical music is available online 24 hours a day.
