...and both of those are different from what's heard on WNCW or on
WXPN's "World Cafe" (syndicated by PRI).  "A Prairie Home Companion"
has all acoustic music, but it's mostly not "acoustic music", and PHC
listeners probably wouldn't be too happy to hear the "live, acoustic"
version of Dishwalla's "Counting Blue Cars" or BHTM's "Please Don't
Tell Her", which get decent airplay on adult-alternative stations like
WXRV.  They all have some overlap, though, in artists if not always in
songs.  Then there's WPAQ, which I think is still the nation's only
commercial all-bluegrass station.
