The Adam Carolla Show was canceled today. All of KLSX is shutting down, actually, to switch to a much more cost-effective, all-music format. Anyone that knows me well knows that I love TACS (I podcast the show daily), but at a time when I'm just beginning to enter the business of broadcasting, my feelings go a lot deeper concerning this development. Tom Leykis is doing his goodbye show as I type this, and like him or not, he was fired abruptly after 12 years and national syndication.

I know this is a few months late, but I am truly saddened by the suicide of David Foster Wallace. He was an incredible writer.
