The only problem is, there's only so much that the human eye can absorb."Richard Wiley Chairman Emeritus Wiley Rein LLP and Former FCC Chairman, with Andy Ockershausen in-studio interviewAndy Ockershausen: This is Our Town. This is Andy Ockershausen, and we're introducing to our podcast one of the more famous regulators in the history of broadcasting. The man was a Commissioner, he was a General Counsel, he became Chairman of the FCC. He is one of the most important people in the history of broadcasting, and we're so delighted to have Dick Wiley here in Our Town.Richard Wiley: Andy, thank you. It's a pleasure and a privilege to be with you once again! And we're still clicking, you know?Andy Ockershausen: You're clicking, I'm clicking, thank God Janice keeps me clicking. But Dick, you've had such an illustrious life, career, and everything, before you went to straight-when you left the government. But you were such an important part of the growth of broadcast to me, and Our Town, and in the world. And what you did as Commissioner, and if you remember the days that I would call on you with Dick Chapin-Richard Wiley: Absolutely.Andy Ockershausen: ... from Nebraska. We were always interested in what the Commission was doing, and what you were doing. And it helped our industry tremendously.Richard Wiley and others at Federal Communications Commission Worked to Eliminate Outmoded Regulations in the 70sRichard Wiley: Well, we were trying to eliminate some of the old, outmoded regulations. The industry had changed and grown, and prospered, and the regulations remained the same. So, you and Dick were bringing in good ideas to try to make some changes.Andy Ockershausen: And before you would make them, Dean Burch was trying the same thing-Richard Wiley: Absolutely. Absolutely. He was my predecessor.Andy Ockershausen: Yeah, well he was your predecessor-Richard Wiley: Great guy.Andy Ockershausen: But he was never General Counsel like you are.Richard Wiley: No.Andy Ockershausen: I remember when you were the General Counsel-Richard Wiley: I was his General Counsel.Andy Ockershausen: That's it. That's correct. That was quite a team at the time, because you were on the same team, everybody's trying to get rid of these ridiculous restrictions. In addition ... Restrictions are good but when they're ridiculous, they're awful.Richard Wiley: Well, as life goes on, the industries change, technology changes, the regulation can't stay the same. And I think that's what we started. They've certainly gone much beyond where we were in the '70's. This was the '70's, Andy-Andy Ockershausen: Oh, I know! I remember that. Oh my God. But there was such a growth period in the industry in the '70's-Richard Wiley: Really was.Andy Ockershausen: ... was incredible, with the networks and-New Technologies Entered Market in the 70s | Satellite | Cable | InternetRichard Wiley: And other technologies were coming in at the time. Satellite, you know-Andy Ockershausen: We didn't know what they were.Richard Wiley: ... television, and cable, you know - nobody wondered whether cable was going to do anything, became of course, a very dynamic industry. And now we've got the internet, which has changed everything.Andy Ockershausen: Just the modest changes that we made in radio at the time, because everything was on a little disc and we had no tapes. It was ancient. Now all that is gone, Dick. Everything is gone up here somewhere, and we don't know where it is, but it works. We could watch a tape in a tape recorder, but we can't watch it now.Richard Wiley: Absolutely.Andy Ockershausen: But Dick, tell me now, you've had such an illustrious career,
