Speaking of ratings for PublicRadio stations, the other
day I tried using rrconline.org for Philadelphia area
ratings in connection with another board.  Rrconline.org
loaded ok and SEEMED to operate in its usual quirky way
(i.e. you would create a 'query' first, then click on
'RUN', just like the old minicomputer days),
but instead of getting the latest public radio Arbs for
Philadelphia, it just displayed some random cities.
Does anybody know if this is now just a phantom website, and if so, where else one could go for
Public Radio ratings of the nature one gets at rronline.com
and in the newspapers.
