Ah, radio listeners: The Federal Communications Commission is finally working for you. No, they haven't given David Lee Roth a long list of on-air tips. The FCC has approved a major wattage increase for WJCU 88.7, John Carroll University's student-run radio station. The station can nearly triple its wattage, preventing interference from the Canadian FM station whose broadcasts often overlap. Which means that for music fans from metalheads to polka fanatics, the station will henceforth come in clear and loud -- if it can find a way to pay for the upgrade. So stop in at the Kick-Off Concert, bang your head, meet the JCU staff, and give 'em a couple extra bucks. College radio is still way cheaper than satellite.
