    “Starting with the Telecommunications Act of 1996,” says local media encyclopedia Dan Kennedy, of Northeastern University, “any meaningful restriction on the ownership of radio stations went out the window. So, you had massive corporate conglomerates buying up radio stations all over the country.” Which means that over the past two decades, Kennedy says, we’ve seen the “absolute disappearance of a certain kind of [local] commercial radio program that people used to like.”

    Boston’s lackluster broadcast scene reflects this.
