Air America Madison Mic 92.1 FM stays on air!

A massive victory for all 200 listeners to Air America's Madison Wisconsin outlet The Mic 92.1 WXXM FM loomed today, as under Congressional and U.N. pressure the GOP-controlled Clear Channel will keep AAR programming on the air and will not replace it with 24/7 cow, corn, and feed programming as previously reported, sources say. This comes on the heels of Cindy Sheehan having announced the construction of "Peace Village - North", a proposed communal village designed to put pressure on Clear Channel to keep Al Franken, Sam Seder, and various even lesser-known personages on the air.

Well, supposedly the town that's home to Michael
Feldman's "Whad Ya Know" gave the station some half decent ratings, and I guess 5,000 people signed a petition, etc. So they won't go to Fox Sports
after all (JT The Brick, etc.)

Meanwhile it's off air in liberal Boston, though attempts are being made (where, on a pirate
station?) to land it elsewhere.

SPINAL TAP
"Well, lads, the show got cancelled in Boston,
but not to worry. I hear it's not a big college town anyway."

AIR AMERICA
"Well, lads, the stations in Boston got pulled,
but not to worry. I hear it's not a big liberal
town anyway."

to WHJJ in RI), Laura Ingraham, sports guy Jim Rome, money guy Dave Ramsey, and
Michael Savage. Call letters said to be changing to WYTS (Your Talk Station?)
