You couldn't call it unexpected: The FCC has approved the sale of Rice's legendary KTRU-FM to the University of Houston, which plans to change it from über-eclecticism to classical music.

Despite rallies, protests and formal filings urging the Federal Communications Commission to reject the proposed sale, the agency gave it the okay today.

Head on over to our sister blog Rocks Off for more details, including a copy of the decision.

Party's over, folks.
