The markets where AAR seem to be doing best are in Red States.  Btw, when I 
was in Portland a couple of weeks ago, the station didn't seem to be airing 
the full AAR schedule-- maybe they pick and choose?  Meanwhile, what 
irritates me as a consultant is that I hear a number of things AAR is doing 
wrong that they should be doing better [note to ideologues on the list-- 
this is NOT about right wing versus left wing-- it's a comment about doing 
interesting radio shows versus doing boring ones]; but every time I try to 
approach the AAR executives, they say they have it handled and they know 
what they are doing and they don't need any help... sigh...
