And maybe someone can address the homogenization of public radio from coast
to coast.

A quick check of the NPR website shows they have 620 affiliates.  Even Rush has more stations than that!  A spin of the dial right now (7:50pm) will show the two Public Radio stations in Boston are not airing the same thing or even the same type of programming.  Want to get away from homogenized radio then tune to the left of the dial, looking at the latest numbers at least in Boston, a lot of people are doing just that.
