WHAT 1340 AM is Air America Radio's outlet in Philadelphia. This says they only broadcast Al Franken and Randi Rhodes, but I don't know if that's up to date. Philly is not as "liberal" a city as NYC, but it's certainly quite liberal, so one might expect local lefties to tune in in droves.
However, the latest preliminary Spring 2005 ratings were released yesterday, and the brotherly love appears to have run dry: the ratings for that station have been progressively getting worse, starting at a .8 in Summer '04, then a couple .7s, then a .6, and now a .5 in the latest period. The bright spot: there's one other Philly station with a .4.
I think I found WHAT AM 1340's homepage, but all it has is a link to their stream and the slogan: The "Voice" of the African American Community. That sounds like Al and Randi to me.

Randi Rhodes says she has 5-10 million listeners. HUH?? Washington
D.C.'s station that broadcasts Air America ratings are 0.2 not 2.0 but
0.2!!! She seriously beleives she can influence the House to draw up
articles of impeachment for Bush. She spewed on and on last year that
if Bush is relected-He will reinstate the draft, overturn Roe vs Wade,
He will produce Osoma Bin Laden (because Osama was sleeping in the
Lincoln bedroom? I quess), right before the election, go to war with
Iran......and when Bush won fair & square, she went on and on like a
sour apple spewing hellion, the elections were rigged. Bottom line-
Randi Rhodes is mentally ill.
