and the bandwidth needed to download a page would be expensive
- see reason #1.

3. Many of  today's multi-mega-corporate radio owners have little or

involvement is minimal.  Announcers are kept in an almost personality-
less mode - lest a listener notice that one has left and another has
their place.  Only profit matters.  I'm surprised that they don't put
P&L sheet on their Web Page.   See reason #1.

4.  I'll wager that many of today's multi-mega-corporate owners don't
have a clue about the history and/or heritge of the stations they own.
Most if not all previous employees are most likely gone - replaced or
