Rana,

Is there someont within the station sympathetic to your plight? New Hampshire Public Radio tried that a few years ago, and at several public hearings, the public was very vocal about folk remaining in the lineup. THEN when fund time came around the most amazing thing happened. They met their goal for the 4 hours in the first half hour, and then met another hastily set up goal, and another and another. They ended up getting 10% of their goal in about 3% of their fundraising time. There has been no talk of getting rid of what they have now. Now if I could just get it to come in during the summer...
