I suppose they advertise on altrock stations...that format seems to attract
the more left-leaning youth as opposed to CHR or more mainstream rock.
I do wonder how much appeal AA will have to 20somethings once the novelty
wears off though. While they don't seem to get much attention, there are
plenty of conservative 20 year olds. Regardless of ideology, talk radio
(especially on AM) has always been and is still primarily a format for an
over-40 crowd. I really doubt "in your face" hard rock is the way to
appeal to them. The Dead Kennedys' appeal was pretty minimal even in their
day, let alone now.
