How will they react when Rush goes to 1200, especially in areas where that 
signal doesnt come in well...

"what I find really scary about this is that these protestors insist that 
this change is solely for political reasons (to silence conservative 
opinion) and has nothing to do with the fact that WROW's ratings have been 
in the dumper for several years now (and their billing couldn't have been 
much better)."

Regrettably, the conspiracy mindset is not limited to this particular format 
change.  Whenever WRKO preempts Rush Limbaugh for ANY reason, even as we did 
through last month's US Senate election to provide local coverage, the 
switchboard is flooded with protest calls insisting that we are muzzling 
their hero.  It happens every single time we preempt Rush.

One has to wonder about the thought process of people who cannot possibly 
get through their day without either their marching orders or confirmation 
of their political beliefs from a re-purposed disc jockey.
