Business 2.0: KYCY = "KBore"

On Business 2.0's list of the "101 Dumbest Moments In Business," published in their January/February 2006 edition (on newsstands now), KYCY/1550 made it to #53:

53. KBore.

In May, Infinity Broadcasting switches San Francisco radio station KYCY to an all-podcast format promoted as "KYOU Radio." Among the programming highlights: My Daily Commute" (a guy mulling his mortality while driving to work), "Rock and Roll Jew Show" (the latest hits from Israel), and "The Worst Music You've Ever Heard" ('nuff said).

Meanwhile, KYCY shows it's still fuzzy on the difference between podcasting and merely turning one's station over to amateurs: The "podcasts" are to be broadcast over the airwaves but are not made available for downloading.
