Sadly, it looks like a critical point for Air America is coming soon, as due to the legalistic requirements of their bankruptcy filing they must find a buyer soon.
All of this occurs against the backdrop of the current time of the year. Even with this unseasonably warm weather, Foliage Season is over save for the southern reaches of New England. The weather has indeed turned, with flurries of snowflakes blurring the views from Air America Radio's windows in The Big Apple. The leaves have indeed fallen onto the ground, whether maples or elms, even blowing through the Concrete Canyons of New York City. The season of candied apples - which I once enjoyed on the porch of the Mount Washington Hotel and Resort while pondering the Bretton Woods agreement and then again in Connecticut - has long passed. As has the season of roasted turkeys, roasted chestnuts, and cranberry sauce - not from a can. The season of Santa and his reindeer is soon upon us. There may be no presents - whether a tie, a pony, or simply a $178 gift certificate - for AAR this year.

Looks like they are left with holding out hope that rich democrats will spend/waste/invest their money on them.

A post on the boston-radio-interest mailing list says that according to a Clear Channel source,
the two Boston stations that run prog. talk/
Air America may be dumping the format on Friday
whether or not a buyer is found...

The only change was Hartmann in for Franken in Boston at noon...this may just be a temp. fix.
Latest rumor is that AAR in Boston goes away
come the New Year.
