With the announced addition of Jody Denberg to the KUT on-air staff (currently standing in for Jay Trachtenberg and John Aielli) [“Off the Record
,” Music, Dec. 31], the commercialization, or "KGSR-ization,” of KUT should be pretty much complete. KUT now has Jody Denberg, Susan Castle, Kevin Conner, and Matt Riley all on board. And I'm thinking Paul Ray better be looking over his shoulder, there's bound to be some KGSR staffer already eyeing that sweet, sweet Saturday night Twine Time
time slot. Or is Mr. Denberg possibly considering a return of his old Critic's Choice
And since KUT long ago took over KGSR's playlist, this must be good news for all those KGSR fans who have been upset over the new direction there, all they have to do is go a little further down the dial. And where are all of us KUT fans of the old "listener supported" station to go? I'm not sure, but I do know where KUT management has all but told us to go.
