Passport to World Band Radio to Shut Down Web Site

2009 was the last edition of Larry Magne's excellent Passport to World Band Radio series of books. This highly respected publication lasted 25 years, with definitive broadcast schedules and radio reviews. The usual reasons were given, such as Internet and the closing of many large government broadcasting operations.

Now we learn from the blog that the Passport web site will also be shutting down soon. While the home page hadn't been updated in quite a while, the blog had continued with absolutely topnotch radio reviews and information that's hard to get anywhere else. It will be missed.

The blog post is here.
