They have actually gotten to be a little more live sounding over the
past few months (being a frequent listener...).  They now have
marshall and Jeff Barna doing mid-days and afternoon drive, it sounds
like they voice track that same day.  The also run what appear to be
brokered time telephone talk shows fairly frequently.  I'm sure the
station is doing okay... it's well done!
