David Bernstein is the new Program Director of Air America Radio, and in a wide-ranging and nearly content-free interview, he had this to say:
"I'm familiar with Air America the way I'm familiar with most other radio, because I listen... But as a product, it's too early to say if we're going in the right direction... I want to get feedback not only from people around here, but from programmers and listeners around the country, because the real question is what your listeners want and are you giving it to them... It may be that in the end, we're already giving people exactly what they want. That's what I'll be looking at... Like anything in radio, it grows, changes and matures... It's much different than it was in May of '04, say. But one of the things about Air America is that it's a known brand. People have definite opinions on it, for and against."
It may also be that "Dr. Crunched Glass' Magical Castor Oil-Flavored Ice Cream With Bits O' Gravel" is giving their customer exactly what he wants too, but I highly doubt it.
