The entire How Radio Was Done series comes to an end with this five hour edition wrapping up1989. With a smirk at radio longevity, we cover multiple stations being sold, closed, transformed and reformatted in the increasingly corporate radio environment of ‘89, while Howard Stern debates a listener on obscenity, Crosley Bendix reviews style itself, dialog with the Russians and a melting Soviet Union continue to dominate politics, Jazz and Hip Hop evolve into Techno and House, the razor tape, “Puffy sleeves,” and Negativland performs “You Must Choose” at the Knitting Factory.
