Writer's Block: On the Airwaves

If you had your own radio or television station, what would it be called and what kind of programming would it play?
I couldn't resist answering this prompt, because I think about my favorite radio and television programming all the time.  In high school, one of my teachers/mentors created a faux radio station as a project for the local broadcasting school he attended and called it KASM, "The Chasm."  "ASM" are his initials, and I'm willing to swipe and modify the idea to KAZM, pronounced the same way but indicative of the first four letters in my last name.  On television, I'd air my favorite classic television shows followed by the modern series inspired by them, i.e. "The Monkees" followed by "American Idol" reruns, or "Get Smart" followed by "Reno 911" (if blundering law enforcement can be considered a genre).  Basically, KAZM-TV would be classic TV Land meets TBS, perhaps even with creator or celebrity commentary that enhances the programming and establishes the connection.

KAZM radio would be more ecclectic.  I'd combine traditional music and talk formats into something fluid and organic, similar to what many webcasts try to do now.  The talk personalities would have to be just as ecclectic, almost ethereal in their ability to segue into topic-appropriate music, much in the way Matt Drudge did when he was on radio.  The music wouldn't buffer segments but enhance them, sometimes even consume them, a true audible montage -- like the echoes in a real chasm.  Yes . . . I love it when a metaphor comes together!
