Per my 'iPod into the air chain' crack, a station that opts to simply 
voice-track recorded music 24/7 from a broom closet in the radio sales 
office can slip by with no interference from the government. Frankly, it 
is conservative talk that is under fire; so, if a station flips to 
'rightie' talk then it opens itself up to scrutiny that it would not 
otherwise face with canned music.  I doubt an Air America or 'leftie' 
assortment on a station would garner any negative interest from regulators.
