We analyze the conformal limit of the matrix model describing flux backgrounds of two dimensional type 0A string theory. This limit is believed to be dual to an AdS2 background of type 0A string theory. We show that the spectrum of this limit is identical to that of a free fermion on AdS2, suggesting that there are no closed string excitations in this background.
