'RKO launches blogger's show on Sun night

It wouldn't be a surprise to see an 'all-podcast' format in Boston in the near future. KYOU  -- "Open Source Radio" -- in San Francisco, which as KYCY was carrying syndicated shows such as Imus, appears to have kicked off its format this past week. 

The station will rely on pro's such as Adam Curry but it appears the bulk of the programming will be culled from all the submissions to their Web site. The station is owned by Infinity, which has plenty of room to move in the Boston market, particularly after firing their air staff.

  On the other hand, reaching even a smaller group is podcasting.  That 
  is when a show is packaged as a downloadable file, to be played later 
  at the listener's convenience on a computer or an iPod or similar 
  device.  This is getting popular enough that Sirius is starting a 
  show of sample podcasts, on Talk Central 148 weekdays from 6 to 10 
  PM, Boston time (see how I made that locally relevant!).
