This Monday, May 25, will be the last time to hear KDHX's handful of talk radio programs on the air -- after that, they will be converted to podcasts.

It's the latest step in an ongoing move toward music-only programming for St. Louis's 28-year-old community radio station. Six years ago, KDHX took most of its talk radio programs off the air, including St. Louis Poet Laureate Michael Castro's Poetry Beat and the syndicated Democracy Now. Four remaining shows -- Earthworms, Literature for the Halibut, Collateral Damage and Collector's Edition, which is about half music and half band interviews -- were stacked together on Monday night. Some were shortened.
