mediageek 11-11-05 supplement: More with WFMU Manager Ken Freeman

I really enjoyed talking with Ken Freeman, station manager of the great freeform community station WFMU. Our conversation lasted more than a half hour, but there’s only time for half of it during the show. So I decided to make the other half available for download/podcat.

This part of the conversation is a bit more radio geeky. We talk about how WFMU is programmed, and Ken’s philosophy on shifting the schedule around, and asking programmers to take sabbaticals every so often to freshen things up. As a former chair of the WEFT Programming Committee (and college station program director), I’m always interested in hearing how station handle the fact that every station needs some shaking up and innovation every so often.

It’s about 14 minutes.
