WMBR - last I checked - has an unofficial moratorium on new community 
members as they're trying to get more students involved.  That may not 
apply to summers.

WZBC does not have any official policy but I know they're trying to get 
more students on the air, too, so it'd have to be a good show and Donna 
would have to be willing to take an oh-dark-thirty slot (like 4 or 5am) on 
a weekend to get a space.

There are regular talk shows at WBRS; every weeknight at 12 midnight to 1 
or 2am.  WBRS is also one of the few college stations with a full call-in 
talk show telephone infrastructure.  Of course, it's a pretty tiny signal, too.
