Site Makeover

As you can tell, I’ve undertaken some drastic measures in changing the appearance of this site.  Unfortunately, I suffered a couple hacks recently, which have caused me to take a hard look at hardening the whole web site, and various aspects of WordPress specifically.  The theme I had been using was heavily customized by me, and just became too cumbersome to keep up to date.

For now, I’ve moved to the K2 theme, which I like a lot so far.  It’s certainly much more powerful than a regular WordPress theme, and I’ve had to re-tool some things that were working fine under my old theme.

Your patience is appreciated as things will probably continue to change for a while.  Please let me know if you encounter anything broken!

Other airings include Dr. Laura, many NPR programs, ESPN Radio, and lots of music.

The following is from the American Forces Network – Europe website:


Why does AFN-Europe air controversial shows?

AFN airs controversial shows because the American Forces Radio and Television Service (AFRTS) wants to provide Americans with the same radio and television shows they can see or hear in the United States. If the show is highly rated, AFRTS tries to procure the rights to the show.

Shows such as Tom Joyner, and Rush Limbaugh come to Europe via satellite from AFRTS at March Air Force Reserve Base, Riverside, California. AFRTS negotiates with program suppliers to get the most popular U.S. shows. If AFRTS can
