While listening to today's LTAR, it occurred to me to wonder whether all
the criticism of satellite programming isn't a bit misplaced.  The 1930s
and 1940s, and into the 1950s, were the era of network radio.  When it
largely disappeared by the end of the 1950s, people were nostalgic for it.

Well, guess what.  Network radio is back.  And it's back for the same
reason it was started in the first place -- because it can provide a lot
of stations with good programming content, less expensively than they
could provide it themselves.
