Probably a bit of both, you get an insight into what's going on there. We visit the US as we have friends now living there so can relate to some of the issues. I shudder when they give out the weather temps during the winter, often 20 below (0 farenheit that is) <yikes>! It was one of those stations that I found by chance in the days when I still had my little box (can't think who made them but it was British) internet only radio. I liked the mix of music and the chat then, although the breakfast guy who was apparently a legend in radio broadcasting ( he had interviewed the Beatles on a US visit) retired. I guess he was a bit like our Terry Wogan!
