Sorry, 'Charlie'; bye, 'Bob'

CBS has done the inevitable and pulled from its schedule the two sitcoms the network was burning off this summer. "Baby Bob" and "Charlie Lawrence" are not expected to return.

July 4 radio specials

The Fourth of July is a visual holiday, but several radio stations are celebrating with special programming on Friday.

Michele Michaels and Sean McDowell of WDVE-FM (102.5) will broadcast live from the Independence Day festivities at Point State Park from noon to 9:30 p.m. The station will broadcast the fireworks audio soundtrack, starting at 9:38 p.m.

WQED-FM (89.3) host Ted Sohier will broadcast live from the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra's Independence Day Concert at Point State Park. Daniel Meyer will conduct, and the program includes Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, "Pomp and Circumstance" and works by John Williams and Aaron Copland. The broadcast starts at 7:30 p.m. and the concert at 8 p.m.

If you like a little political satire mixed in with your Fourth of July festivities, The Capitol Steps' "Politics Takes a Holiday" airs on WDUQ-FM (90.5) at 2:30 and 7 p.m.

Music guide

Clear Channel Radio is debuting a free music publication that will be available during summer months.

It's published by Clear Channel Radio's Collective Merchandising division. The company says it's not going into the publishing business but is distributing the guide to give music fans a new source of information and to complement its concert promotion and radio businesses.

The company is putting out two issues this summer and may continue to publish, depending on the response, according to Jay Freedman, vice president of tactical marketing for Clear Channel Collective Merchandising.

"Music Guide Live!" features information on national artists, music news, tour schedules, local music and more.

Starting this weekend, the guide will be available at concerts and events in 30 markets, including Pittsburgh. Clear Channel owns six stations here (WDVE-FM, WXDX-FM, WWSW-FM, WJJJ-FM, WKST-FM and WBGG-AM).

There's a companion Web site -- musicguidelive.com -- with features on several top artists, links for ticket sales and contest information.
