Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Thursday) | Listen to this entire show:

First up today:

According to the Tampa Tribune:

"A Tampa radio station with a long history of serving a predominately black audience has switched formats to reach a young adult Latino audience.

"On Friday, financially troubled WTMP (1150 AM, 96.1 FM) became "La Bahia," meaning "The Bay," playing Spanish and tropical music instead of urban adult contemporary and classic soul.

"Also gone is the syndicated "Tom Joyner Show." The staff has been let go and a new WTMP website is "under construction."

"For 57 years, WTMP was a voice in Tampa's black community. It now is being programmed by the New York-based Davidson Broadcast Group."

We're joined in this first segment by Jarvis El-Amin and Hakim Aquil, two former programmers at WTMP. They co-hosted "Honest Opinion" radio on Saturday mornings on the urban radio station. (FMI: 813 787-6652)

Next up we'll talk with Richard Gage who believes there is evidence of a conspiracy involving the destruction of the World Trade Center buildings on 9/11/01. Richard Gage, a San Francisco Bay area based architect, founded Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth in 2006. Gage, who is a member of the American Institute of Architects, has worked as an architect for twenty years and was involved in the construction of numerous fireproof steel-frame buildings. He became convinced of the need to create an organization that brings together architects and engineers when he listened to an independent radio station interview with theologian David Ray Griffin. He joins us now from Toronto.

It's not right-bring the old wtmp r&b

wtmp r&b has been a part of the tampabay black community, for as long as I can remember. It played music we grow up on. It's not right to change the format to latin-there are other latin stations, but only one WTMP. BRING IT BACK!
