That, is the pertinent question to ask that has relevancy !

Hating a radio station has caused your morose brain to shrink to pea size.

Again: should one of W.S.P.D.'s, personalities unexpectedly die, would you be:
1) at the funeral screaming and dancing your "chicken dance",
2) flying airplane banners with vile statements attached, while throwing bags of urine on attendees,
3) drive a Monster truck around the site wrecking headstones, markers, and etc.,
4) all of the above.

Inhumanity displayed as if he's a Chicago gansta mowing down teenagers to the tune of 275 to date and counting.
Chicago: Obozo's home town....

Have you joined Fred's fan club yet? You obviously listen to him more than us.

Our power was out. I got out my trusty old transistor radio, put in fresh "AAs" and tuned in to 1370. (I tried other local stations, too.) On the hour and half hour, there was a little storm information. After that, the usual stuff. When our (land line) phone went down, I really felt a sense of some urgency. The radio was of little comfort. Fortunately, our cell phone was fully charged!

When the TV is working, at least two local TV stations will do almost nothing but cover local storms until all danger has passed. By that time, viewers and listeners have a TON of information, including specifics about power outages, emergencies shelters, etc. When we needed it the most, local radio let us down. There's no way to justify this and have them call themselves responsible community partners. Just keep the usual broadcast, and keep the commercials coming. Sponsoring occassional community programs, and holding occassional fundraisers doesn't fulfill your role. Toledo's local radio stations all seem to have the same motto: SELL, SELL, SELL!!

Radio stations no longer local?
