Alternative right-wing yakkers don't always fare that well;
Boston's WTTT-AM 1150 has yet to show any kind of number to
the right of the decimal point after YEARS of fairly 
well-know syndicated hosts (Praeger, Bennett, Medved,
Reagan, Schlessinger, etc). Many have posted on this
site about AM 1150's signal shortcomings, but it IS
a full-time 5,000 watt station below the police calls...
thus somewhat superior to the WXKS-AM/WKOS duo.
