The owners of the Star used their
control of local media to effectively
eliminate advertising from their com
petitors, Bender said, and were sub
sequently able to eliminate competi
tion, creating a monopoly.
“Situations in which that concen
tration occurred tended to create abuse
just as in Kansas City,” he said, “and
the FCC finally agreed to step in to
Those regulations, set in the 1950s,
were partially canceled out with a
series of new rules that the FCC
approved in April 1992.
The new rules allow for owner
ship of up to three radio stations in
markets that contain 14 or fewer com
mercial stations, and up to four sta
tions in markets with 15 or more.
Another restriction limits the market
share of one owner to 25 percent of all
The reasons for deregulation,
Bender said, primarily dealt with the
financial welfare of radio stations
and their owners.
“There are so many radio stations
out there that single ownership often
isn’t economically viable,” he said.
“Allowingduopolies enables stations
to combine their resources and there
fore make running stations cheaper
and more profitable.”
Multiple ownership is somewhat
of a double-edged sword for the lis
tening public, Bender said.
“It allows more radio stations to
survive, and that obviously means a
wider range of choices for listeners,”
“But on the other hand, more cen
tralized ownership on a national level
could lead to a decline of the commu
nity-based radio station, and that
could be a real loss for several listen

“Everything That’s On My
It’s hard to believe this is the
same guy who co-wrote Amy
Grant’s smash hit single, “Every
Charlie Peacock’s ninth album,
“Everything That’s On My Mind”
displays an amazing lack of the
superior songwriting talent he dis
played writing for Grant, Out of
the Grey and Lisa Bevill.
The clearest example of this is
“Monkeys At the Zoo,” a song that’s
just plain stupid. The chorus seems
to have some potential at first, but
then these words:
“Gotta make my bed/gotta clear
my head/it’s getting kind of stuffy
in here, smells sorta funky, too/
like monkeys at the zoo.”
Presumably, Peacock is writing
about clearing his mind to allow
God’s truth to come in. It’s a great
message, but hard to receive when
meshed in with these lyrics and
Peacock’s poorly timed singing.
The album has one highlight.
“Slippery Pearls,” a duet with
Ashley Cleveland, is a delight to
listen to, both musically and lyri
cally. But it would be a waste to buy
the album just to hear one song.
It’s been said that this album is
different from Peacock’s previous
works. Given that, Peacock might
try returning to his earlier style,
because his new style leaves a lot to
Or maybe he should just stick to
producing records and writing
songs for others. He’s great at that.

“The Trip-Hop Test Part One”
A new generation has formed
under a groove called trip-hop.
Quite a few artists over the last
several years have been develop
ing this new movement inspired by
techno, hip hop, acid jazz, ambient
and house music.
Trip-hop formed on the West
Coast and spread to England where
much new music is cultivated. The
resulting sound is innovative dance
A couple of the tracks are con
sidered classics to trip-hop artists.
“They Came In Peace” by Tran
quility Bass is a very catchy tune,
underscored by chirping crickets,
slowly gaining momentum—add
ing maracas, drums and a plucking
“Transmit Liberation” is an
other popular trip-hop song by the
group Single Cell Orchestra. The
first three minutes are a slow syn
thesizer exercise with echoes. Then
quick drums and bongos bring the
dance track to full realization.
Another standout track by Paul
Webber is called “Wildwood,”
Webber evokes images of the old
west with his acoustic guitar, later
joined by a distorted electric guitar
This disc offers plenty of variety
from the the Dust Brothers ’ techno
laced “My Mercury Mouth” with
its evolving complexity to the
reggae style ballad of “seashell” by
To anyone who is open to new
styles and the latest dance music,
this melange called trip-hop might
just be for you.

The only negative portrayal is
turned in by Roger Floyd, who, as the
token Caucasian, goes psycho during
the mission and must be taken care of
to protect the unit.
The photography is less than chal
lenging, but it works because the di
rector emphasizes the story over the
landscape. With most of the shots
made at night, lighting is a problem
that is confidently overcome by John
L. Demps Jr. He uses minimal light

relying upon explosions and special

itself as the first film to deal with the
black experience in Vietnam. The film
fulfills that promise well.
“The Walking Dead” is a positive
addition to the collection of films that
