ratings[edit]

"America’s flagship station, WLIB-AM in New York, garnered a 1.2 share in the latest quarter, down 0.1 from the year-ago period. By comparison, WABC-AM, New York’s leading conservative station, garnered a 3.8 share, up 0.1 from the year-ago period. WOR-AM, another conservative station, posted a 2.1 share, down 0.1 from the year-earlier period."

This was added to Randi Rhodes by user:72.45.198.47. I moved it here since there's no citation, and no date to indicate when the numbers come from. And because if we were to include it, it should be under AAR, not Randi. humanbe in 17:06, 1 September 2007 (CDT)

Of all the towns to be in[edit]

I was intensely amused when I saw that North Bend, Oregon had its own liberal radio station. I used to live there, and it was a miserable, dying, sad little blue-collar town. Which inexplicably has a left-wing station broadcasting out of it. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 12:58, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

How far is that from Ashland? Secret Squirrel (talk) 13:04, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
(Bah. None of the maps online give their scale.) I'd guess about 100 to 125 miles away. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 13:15, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
Too far then..I could see an audience for liberal talk in Ashland. Secret Squirrel (talk) 13:25, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Page needs updating[edit]

This is one of the articles we need to put into a list called "update frequently". Many of these shows are off the air now, and there are many new ones. I'll work on this, this weekend, if no one else has attacked it. — Unsigned, by: WaitingforGodot / talk / contribs 2013-04-03T19:51:38‎

Page scope creep?[edit]

Just now I deleted the last remaining references to We Act Radio, which was on flea powered, low budget WPWC 1480 in Dumfries-Triangle, Virginia (a suburb of Washington, DC). It appears that this liberal network was dropped on WPWC some time ago for a Spanish format, and WPWC itself is currently off the air or running really reduced power.

This brings up an observation about this article. The word radio is in the title, which implies that the programs listed are present on one or more real radio stations. I don't consider a podcast to be radio. It seems that there is some ambiguity concerning this definition.

I'd like to get a read from the community here about the podcast-versus-real-radio issue before I start the clean-up. Thanks, --Cosmikdebris (talk) 17:18, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
