Music maven Kenny Weissberg has left KPRI 102.1 after six and a half years. His two-hour Sunday-night show, Music without Boundaries, is no more.

"The station hired a consultant/operations manager...a few months ago," says Weissberg. "He spent $50,000 of KPRI's money on market research, and apparently one of the recommendations for that investment was to eliminate any unfamiliar music and tighten up the playlist; i.e., more repetition à la Top 40 radio."

Music without Boundaries was launched at KIFM in 1993 and later picked up by KPRI.

"FM radio is going to lose its audience to satellite radio over the next few years anyway," says Weissberg, "but I was happy to be one of the last bastions of free-form radio on the commercial airwaves."
