I just wanted to say that's one reason I still do it. It doesn't matter to
me if I'm on a tiny station with a weak stream or an otherwise small
audience. If I'm on the air, doing my thing, my way, then material not
commonly heard on radio elsewhere is being heard. And it bucks corporate
radio and woos a little bit of the audience away from them. I'm glad to do
it.
