No - I'm trying to listen to WEEI - sports talk radio and station that
the Red Sox games are broadcast on.

usually the problem with am radio is that there are far too many republi
"con" talking point shows with hosts that are filled with too much hate,
anger and vitriol and these loudmouth republi cons like hackhead hannity,el
druggo limpballs, and vibrator boy billy o :lie" lly from fox non news spin
network. thats the problem with am radio

What's right with AM radio is that traffic reports are more comprehensive on
many of the AM stations that use a news/talk format. After all, AM is not
very music-friendly and it has to have some draw. My favorite station used
to be KTAR in Phoenix, before they changed to the call-in and agitation
format. Even today, if you turn down the yak, you can get superb traffic
info every ten minutes during rush hour. On FM you're lucky to hear a report
before you get home, even if you wait an hour in the snarl you could have
avoided if only you'd known.
Sadly, KTAR no longer has the news team that 15 years ago made it the only
news source I had any faith in. Unlike Fox or the wire services (the AP and
Reuters should register as PACs) they had a "just the facts" approach
combined with deep background that was just as meaty. <sigh>

AM is free. I don't like music or entertainment enough to pay for it, so I
don't need XM. To each their own....
