Not coincidental at all. KB's sudden format change is, at least in part, 
a move intended to steal WHLD's thunder a week before it's set to launch.

(Not that WHLD will be much of an AAR affiliate, either - it's being run 
by a coalition of local labor activists, with local morning and 
afternoon shows and continuing the lease-time arrangement that already 
has WHLD airing Democracy Now and other Pacifica shows. The only AAR 
content will be Franken at noon and a delayed evening broadcast of Randi 

As the liberal talk format evolves, AAR's becoming just one player in 
the field - Jones is a pretty big one now, too, with Stephanie Miller
