    I like the classical and other less-common musical programming, but I can live without it. The rest of it is drivel, clearly programmed by a bunch of liberals with an agenda. Chaps my rear that I help fund it.

    I listen to it almost daily and I usually enjoy the music and news. I actually have heard it become more "centered"/ "bipartisan" in the last few months. When I hear something I don't agree with, I yell at the radio and then change the channel. I always get the last word.

    Don't care one way or the other, but pull their taxpayer funding and let them compete in the market.

    I haven't listened in near 15 years.

    The format is massively snoozalicious and canned. Can they start one of their in-depth news stories about someone no one would ever care about a different way??? And having a rain sound effect doesn't count as starting every 3rd story different.

    They spend far too much time worrying what things will sound like on radio and far too little time on modulation of their monotone voices. It's like they are reporting from the back pew of Easter Mass or something.

    I don't even like Click and farkin Clack. Too much NPR flavor gets all over those guys.

    I like it. Just like CNN or Faux, I can always change the station.

    I like it.

    In my city, they have an all news/talk station. At 11:00PM they switch to the BBC.

    I LOVE hearing the SAME news story, but reported by another country.

    Sometimes, you can barely tell it's the same story.:whistling:

    And, I like classical music, too.

    Every damned day. Their specials on the .30-06, AK-47 and B-52 were simply brilliant in both praise and accuracy. HH

    Despise it. I think the govt teat they're gagging on needs to be pulled out of their throat and they made to peddle their leftist crap in the free market.......... if it'll sell. But I doubt the parasites would survive without their tax-paying hosts.

    What I dislike is they have parts called. "All things considered" and similar. Thing is they are "our chosen viewpoint endorsed" or "something we don't like villified"
    If you get public funds you should be required to be FAIR.

    Can you post some support, or are you just toeing the line? HH

    Right, but do you pay for either of those two?
