My friend and I were bemoaning the fact that fewer adults are listening 
to music anymore..most listen to talk radio whenever possible...I 
believe this is a phenomenon of 9/11, followed by our march into 
Iraq....folks have been put on orange alert, told to duck tape windows, 
they've probed at airports etc..how can they not turn on the news talk 
radio and stay informed...ya never know when the next rumor and/, or 
threat will come along. Here's hoping the day is near when listeners 
will tire of the threats, take a deep cleansing breath and once again 
enjoy the music....

always staying tuned,

That is one reason why the survival of public radio stations is so
important. Sadly, however, there is a noticeable movement towards talk
