KBCS drops the GD Hour

Wednesday, November 27th, 2019

Just got a note that KBCS Bellevue (Seattle) WA is dropping the GD Hour.

The program director said, “This is a strategic decision. The station’s long-term focus is on developing locally created music content. The Grateful Dead Hour was the sole remaining syndicated show on our schedule. Although it is a very high quality program, it is time for KBCS to move on.”

Being both a working musician and a longtime advocate for community radio, I entirely support KBCS’s desire to focus on locally-produced music shows.

Not sure if the station would be receptive to listener requests to reconsider…

Here is our current station list, revised to reflect KBCS’s departure.
