Reason.com reports: “A broadcast pioneer just died in southern Mexico, a few weeks shy of his 87th birthday. Back in the 1960s and ’70s, Lorenzo Milam helped launch about a dozen offbeat FM stations—eclectic, adventurous outlets that tried to avoid the straightjacket formulas of both commercial and public radio. Lorenzo Milam worked for a few conventional stations in the 1950s. And then, when he started studying at Berkeley, he discovered KPFA, a noncommercial outlet run by the Pacifica Foundation. KRAB-FM went on the air in 1962, and Lorenzo ran it from then until 1968.
