 I have checked out the network on WTWK Plattsburgh, NY (1070, 5kW D). Weak
signal south of Vergennes. Franken is absolutely abysmal from the POV of
execution of format, delivery, timing, etc. He works with a central casting talk
partner. She acts as technical host with Franken treated as the revered talent.
Doesn't work.  Attempting to listen to other dayparts is painful.  And I am not
even considering the political agenda they are attempting to promulgate.
Reminds me of an addage, sage advice from my radio youth by a radio veteran, "No
radio is far, far better than bad radio."
