Really? In any contract you sign for air time (or most anyhow) the station
usually reserves the right to yank the programming at any time. (Bob
Bittner, weigh in here.) A radio station is a private company and
essentially should be allowed to do whatever it wishes as a part of free
enterprise. Newspapers can easily reject ads and special advertising
sections, why not radtio stations refuse to run a program. It is not like
WEVD is the only station in New York City, for example: There are at least
20 more.
