Air America Radio redesigns website, to become web-only

Our sources inside Air America Radio are reporting shocking news: Air America Radio will soon exit the over-the-air radio business and become a web-only presence. They'll concentrate on streaming audio, video, and text posts, as the Young Turks did just a couple of months ago. Additional income will be obtained through merchandising (such as tote bags) as well as through cruises, endorsements by Randi Rhodes, Thom Hartmann, and Lionel, and the like.

A look at their web site reveals that they're well on their way to achieving the long-sought-after goal (such as by the Huffington Post) of actually monetizing the internet. The most noteworthy aspect is the color scheme, a veritable cornucopia of shades of blue, green, red, orange, brown, yellow, and on and on. Virtually the entire rainbow is represented there.

But, the most noteworthy feature has to be the new blocks, which include rounded corners, a long desideratum of web developers everywhere. For this scheme, they've used the technique of having a top portion with a background including the rounded corners, then a repeated middle section with the sides, followed by a bottom span with the two lower corners. They do not appear to be using Javascript to perform that, meaning that it will degrade well in older browsers or for those who've disabled that feature.

I completely forgot to celebrate Air America's fourth year on the air as I and thousands did last year, but let this post be a belated "Congratulations!" to America's proudest and most successful progressive radio network. And many more!
