KBPS makes a comeback, sort of

The Trib (motto: "Light rail and gravel for all") had a piece yesterday about how Benson High School has put its student radio station back on the air. It's hired a part-time manager, and made the school principal the nominal full-time general manager so as to satisfy the FCC. We're glad to hear that the station has resumed broadcasts, but like Benson, it's limping along now, and getting nowhere near the respect it deserves from the Bobbie-heads and Super Carole. Oh well, at least it's something.

Having been off the air for a long spell, the station probably lost a good chunk of its audience, which will be slow to return. By the time it does, the school office will probably have yet another new idea, and there'll be more disruption. Anyway, our years in student radio in the '70s were some of the greatest times we've ever had, and we wish the Benson broadcasters nothing but the best.
