Something occurred to me -- On last Sunday's LTAR, something was said about some 
survey of talk-radio listeners which found that they were very conservative, and that was the 
reason that a liberal talk show wouldn't work.

But that's a self-selected group.  If talk shows are conservative, naturally those who listen 
will be conservative.  They won't listen to a liberal talk show, but people of more liberal 
pursuasion won't listen to a conservative talk show, either. So a good liberal talk show might 
attract an audience that is not now listening to talk shows.
