We make it up in volume
The OkiePundit is displeased with what he finds on the radio dial:
Just as an experiment I scanned the radio spectrum a few minutes ago and before I gave up I found a choice of several hip-hop or "urban" music stations (gag), a couple of country and western music options (ugh), three channels with preachers hollering at me (who listens to this?), two Christian music stations, four very conservative talk show stations, and several stations playing OLD rock and popular music. Only National Public Radio (NPR) had something to interest me. No cutting-edge music available at all. No politically moderate and in-depth talk shows to listen to. Certainly nothing from the political left on talk radio - not that I'd like that much more than the far right stuff.
I guess he must be in Tulsa.
Of course, the prevailing definition of "cutting-edge" music requires that it not be played on the radio; if it were, it wouldn't be "cutting-edge", would it?
