I assume that the people who find non-comm religious stations enjoyable, are 
willing to "put up or shut up" because the enjoy the programming...which 
appears to lean heavily on music.

In the commercial world of religion, there are only a few 'superstars' that 
people will respond to.

As they drop off, there is almost nobody that is replacing them.

Add to that the fact that most commerial relion stations are on AM...and 
most of the non-comms are on FM.

With 3kw out of Farmington, I don't know if there are people who will 
support it.
