Beaker Street's Last "Final Day", Feb. 6, 2011, Part 3

And we continue on with Hour 3 of the last Beaker Street on KKPT.  In this segment, there is an interesting final interview with Scott Reed, Wil Warren and Mark Arouh of Little Rock Classics/Lost Classics/Watcher of the Skies, who interacted with Clyde during Beaker Street in the past.

Many, many people protested to KKPT in phone calls, e-mails and such --- myself included --- but the General Manager never budged, nor replied.  Ego, perhaps?

Such is corporate radio at all levels.  One boss leaves, another takes his place and will "show them all who's boss", in sometimes inane moves and decisions.

Clyde had mentioned that, if it hadn't been for management's decision, he'd have been happy to live out Beaker Street's last days at KKPT.  He got along very well with everyone there.  Such was not to be.  Still, through the miracle of audio and computer archiving, we can continue to enjoy (with breaking hearts) this event, as it unfolds:

Thanks, Dave, for the audio help!
