Black and WEOS-FM Featured in Syracuse News

Mike Black, general manager of WEOS FM (89.7/90.1), was quoted in the Sept. 9 Syracuse Post-Standard article “After Sept. 11, radio plays it patriotic safe.” The article focused on area radio stations and the songs they've chosen to play after Sept. 11, most of them playing patriotic songs, and few anti-war songs, in response to their listeners.

WEOS-FM has gotten positive reaction from most listeners for mixing in some current and past anti-war songs, according to Black, including anti-war music by such groups as Michael Franti & Spearhead, whose songs have included “Pray for Grace.”

“Listeners want a different viewpoint,” he said.
