Isn't that what the internet is for?  Spinner.com?   Or perhaps XM/Sirius 
will have a channel or two devoted to the format...it's quite possible. 
Likely, even.

Hey, I'm not saying what's happening with Oldies stations is right or 
wrong....but I encourage everyone to walk away from commercial radio these 
days.  The more power the 'net and sat.radio and NCE's get...the more 
likely the whole big corporate monster will collapse under it's own weight 
and revenge will be mine!  BUAHHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAA!!!

Not exactly "just kidding", but I have a deep-seated dislike of about 90% 
of the programming above 91.9 on the dial (except for WBRS & WRBB of 
course).  I would love to see giant radio networks get nuked and go back to 
fierce competition between locally-owned stations.   I think it's 
coming.  Not today, certainly...nor tomorrow...but 5 or 10 years from now
