Got the complete tour of Argentina's national radio station today. This is my second visit - came in 1999 and interviewed people in the English service of Radio Argentina Al Exterior, the overseas service. This time I talked with the people running the various domestic networks. This state network is moving more into the direction of public broadcasting, with far more talk shows and interactivity than was the case last time I came. Studios have mothballed the tape decks and record players, now everything comes off the computer using a software package called Hardata that has been made in Argentina (I see most stations using it). Cost is around 870 US dollars per work-station, considerably less than the European variants.
