The Demise of Greenwich Radio?

As usual, your scribe tuned his radio to 1490 on the AM dial this Monday morning, expecting to hear at least a semblance of local Greenwich news. Nope. Not today. Nor has the website been updated since Friday.

Have we lost our local radio station? It was never all that great, but at least it provided an alternative to the increasingly hapless - and hopeless - Local Rag, aka Yellowwich Time.

Well, maybe there's no news to report today. Or maybe another once-local business has gone belly-up. Time will tell - but the Local Rag and the local radio station may not. Never very reliable to begin with, it now seems they're falling off the map. Well, in the case of the latter, at least the airwaves.

UPDATE on Tuesday morning:

Well, it seems that the locals were just taking a day off. Perhaps they confused the 6th with the 4th, or perhaps they felt that since the Fourth fell on a Saturday, they would take their holiday on Monday instead. In any case, the usual format was back today, full of the usual mostly irrevelant stories. But even an irrelevant story is better than none. At least it tells us that the Town of Greenwich is still alive and kicking.
