At last report, Raney was still barricaded; locked in the control room to make his protest on the air.
He says the station management’s plans to use nationally syndicated programming are absurd. So he's pitched a tent, and settled himself into the studio where he’s taking calls from listeners in hopes of keeping local talent on the air, playing classic rock music."
Raney says he's well aware this move could cost him his job.
"Whatever it takes,” says Raney. “I'm here for the long haul. If it takes a couple days, a couple of weeks, or a couple months, I’m here, and I’m going to stay here until every voice is heard."
I think it is very noble for what Mark is trying to do.
KZEL is part of Eugene's history and it should stay local.
People listen to a radio station for 2 reasons in my opinion.
What the station offers and the personalities of the people behind the mic.
Keep KZEL Live and Local and Rockin’ like it should be!
