Unfortunately, I suspect the best way to do it would be the way Arnie Ginsburg did many 
years ago.  Buy the time, get the sponsors, develop a following, until some other station 
makes you an offer.

An alternative might be to get a slot on a station like WMBR, which will sometimes put 
members of the community on the air, especially in summer, when students are away.  But 
I'm not sure that would translate as well to a regular commercial gig.

Either way, you'd have to do some promotion to develop a following.
