Air America Radio: anti-Finn, anti-Polka, anti-Senior, anti-American

Air America's latest outlet is WELY 1450 AM in Ely/Hibbing Minnesota. Let's take a look at some of the programming AAR will be replacing with Randi Rhodes, Mike Malloy, and all the rest. WELY calls itself "End of the Road Radio", and it will indeed be the end of the road for some of their American shows:

SUNDAY (Times are CST)
7 AM - 9 AM Aamuhetki Finnish American Show (nordic music)
9 AM - 12 PM Sunday Morning Together
12 PM - 7PM Big Band Ballroom Stardust
7 PM - 8pm Birding with Bill
8pm - 10pm Oldies


9 AM - 10 AM End-Of-The-Road Trading Post
10 AM - 12 Classic Folk
...1 PM - 2 PM Classic Folk
2 PM - 6 PM Rock Mix
6 PM - 7 PM Brandenburg Images in Sound
7 PM - 8 PM Boundary Waters Blues Jam
9 PM - 10 PM Off The Beaten Path
10 PM -6Am Oldies


...7 PM - 8 PM Radio Kids
...10pm-12 The Feast


...10 PM - 12 AM Reggae Mix


7 AM - 12 PM Polka Pal Don Show
12 PM - 3 PM Big Lake County Blue Grass Show
3 PM - 4 PM Wood Songs
4 PM - 6 PM Midnight Special
6 PM - 7 PM Rock Mix
7 PM - 8 PM Boundary Waters Blues Jam
8 PM - 12AM Rock'n Roll Request Show
12AM-7AM Oldies
In their own "liberal" way, AAR is like the WalMart of screeching: moving in to a small town and replacing fine local programming with their loony leftie hosts.

Perhaps what's needed here is an anti-AAR movement similar to that that opposes the giant retailer. I know all the people who oppose what they did to KCTC would be eager to join.

Our slogan: "Stop the Walmartification of American Radio!"

I heard AAR has to pay stations to air their trash, hence the need to take over rinky dink outfits such as these. What a business model!!

Right-wingers complaining about Wal-Mart? Interesting...

If you knew anything you'd know that WELY is 2 stations and they are only picking up Al Franken on the AM talk station - and only Al. Not the entire network. Do some reserch - call the station before having a heart attack over a station that you never listened to in the first place.
